Dominions 5: Warriors of the Faith is a 4X game in which you control one of many pretender gods vying to become the new supreme god of a fantasy world, and pitting nations of their worshippers against each other in their attempts to do so. I’ve been a fan of the series since Dominions 3 – Bacon Radar has been for a lot longer – and I definitely recommend it if you enjoy deep and complicated strategy games.
One of the things I love about the game is its set of modding tools and the modding community that uses them. I’ve been working on my first mod for the game, which adds the Beastmen from the Warhammer universe to the game. I’ve drawn a bunch of sprites but still need to do some more, and I’ve been coding up some changes to make them feel a bit more Beastman-like (since the game relies on building and holding forts, which is not nearly as interesting to the Beastmen as burning down other peoples’!).
I’ll be posting the mod to this forum when it’s ready.
