If you’ve got the Brave New World expansion for Civilization V, why not head over to this page here and download the Australian Civilization mod that some enterprising nutter has cobbled together?

Check out all these goodies:

Leader: Sir Henry Parkes, the Father of Modern Australia!
Boundless Plains to Share: Settlers found Puppeted cities. The first 3 coastal Cities founded gain free buildings that provide additional Food and Tourism as Australia progresses throughout the ages. Mines gain +2 Production after Railroad is researched.
Prime Minister: Australia’s unique Great Writer, the Prime Minister will supply you with political quotes as Great Works that only Australia can produce. In addition, their mere rise to power will be enough to trigger a Golden Age!
Digger Infantry: Australia’s unique Great War Infantry, the Digger Infantry performs exceptionally in desert and foreign combat and can quickly be recruited from your Workers in times of need. Doesn’t obsolete at Plastics either.
Unique Australian Buildings (from the UA): Colonial Settlement (Classical), Mining Town (Renaissance), Refugee Programme (Modern), Tourism Department (Information).

The mod describes us as “a tourism-focused civilization, with strong ties to the ocean”. Take a look!

this mod looks fantastic.

 

“strong ties to the ocean”, with the +10 fat pig mining magnate “dump silt on the Great Barrier Reef” bonus

 

The prime minister triggers a golden age.
I don’t even want to touch that one.

 

Ah the refugee programme is a bit ironic considering the current political situation.

Skilled migration would’ve been more appropriate i reckon.

If you don’t like mining you could always send them broke by not using electricity, steel, aluminum, copper, zinc, silver, tin, gold, etc…… Of course that would require you to stop being a hypocrite and actually live by your own morale code.

 

schrapple,

No need to twist words, the criticism was on the guy dumping waste on the reef.

 

lon,

There’s no twisting, people create the demand which then creates situations like that and then they have the cheek to complain that it happens. It’s like drug addicts complaining that drug dealers exist.

 

schrapple,

Whatever helps you sleep at night pal.

 

tacitus42,

we’ve had some pretty amazing ones, Paul Keating being the most recent. Just google his quotes regarding other PMs and opposition leaders… Damn i wish that man was still in power

You don’t need to drop dredge shit on the reef to do mining, its just the cheapest way and as we know the money grubbing shits in politics give their mining mates every break they want.
Its why CSG is allowed to risk water tables.

Yep Paul Keating was a great debater, came up with some fantastic ‘calls’ against political rivals. Shame that by the end of his tenure that’s about all he was interested in, winning the question time arguments. There’s a lot more to being a good PM than winning that hour of the day.

It’s comforting to know that the ill informed suburbanites of Melbourne can still show such rage over things they know so little about. The dredging has literally nothing to do with the mining process, the dredging is taking place to enlarge an existing shipping passage in the reef. Also that “dredge shit” which you refer to is sand, and it is being put inside a “marine park area” not dropped on the reef.

The choices are not limited to “no mining at all” or “total free for all”.

The dredging is ONLY happening because the mining industry wants a more convenient way to get coal out of the country. So it is a flat out lie to say it has “nothing to do with the mining process” – no “mining process”, no dredging. Simple.

And FWIW, yes, I would fully support us no longer mining, selling or using coal. It is totally irresponsible for us to be massively contributing to global warming, not to mention moronic given that we are one of the countries who will suffer the worst effects of it.

And yes, I would happily have my personal material wealth drop somewhat in exchange for not annihilating the local and global environment. Wouldn’t you?

I have no issue with carefully managed, sustainable mining. Outside of national parks. Done in a way which leaves no permanent damage to the environment or to cultural sites. With an appropriately large mining tax to reflect the fact that private companies are making huge profits digging up OUR minerals.

 

caitsith01,

And once again we have someone who lives a world away from the issue raging out based on the mis-information that best suits whatever it is they want to get on their high horse at the coffee shop about.

It is not ” happening because the mining industry wants a more convenient way to get coal out of the country.”, it is a currently in use channel already used to ship coal, it is not some dastardly scheme being unraveled by a comic book stereotype supervillian, it is an expansion of any already in use channel to allow bigger ships through that can now be serviced by an upgraded terminal.

I am more than happy to discuss the matter but you really need to leave the eco terrorist, end of the world shit at the door. It might win you points when you use it to suck up the arse of your lecturer but it is baseless in reality, it demonstrates that you don’t understand the issue and that you are running off pure rage.

Unfortunately I am not more than happy to discuss the matter with you, as you are clearly a deluded right winger who prefers personal abuse to actual reasoned argument and thinks that living in physical proximity to a mine magically increases one’s knowledge of the relevant issues (presumably the mine radiates this knowledge at night into your sleeping brain).

I banish thee to the News Ltd comments section from whence ye came.

PS 13th day of summer over 40 degrees in Adelaide today… previous record was 11… but I have no opinion about that, because I don’t live in a coal mine.

 

caitsith01,

Claims some one “prefers personal abuse to actual reasoned argument ” then goes on to say I am a “deluded right winger” who’s knowledge radiates out of a hole in the ground whilst I sleep and that my comments should be banished to News Ltd. Oh my you are a clever one aren’t you?

Allow me to destroy a few more of your ill conceived ideas, I’ll keep the points short as you are clearly someone who prefers to only dig skin deep into issues.

Just because I point out your ideas are based on deliberate mis-information created to induce rage in those thousands of kilometers away from the issue doesn’t mean by default I support those who are at the exact opposite end your petty squabble (and to be clear those who take the same extreme stance but just from the opposite stand point are as ill informed and incorrect as you are).

Sorry to disappoint but no, I don’t live next to a mine, I do however live next to “the reef”. I regularly physically experience the reef and it doesn’t work the way you seen it work in Finding Nemo. It is not a reef, it is a massive area of reefs and islands which has many gaps large enough for shipping, they aren’t bulldozing “the reef” to make a new shipping lane that never existed.

Sorry to disappoint you again but yes, living in a mining community in the area would increase ones knowledge of the matter, why? Because this person would be exposed to far more information about local issues through local sources. You living a massive distance from the area would receive no local information on the issue. You are exposed to what certain people want you to hear so that you will rage out then go on to serve their purpose.

Before starting this point I need to make it clear that this is not me making a statement on the merits of global warming, it is me making a statement on the merits of the “proof” you are using. What you are experiencing in Adelaide is called weather, the earth has actually experience a period of cooling in the last 6-7 years, not that that proves anything other than the fact the temperature fluctuate, meaning that your current hot trend is indicative of neither a raising or falling in global temperatures. What your point does indicate though is your willingness to rage over a half baked idea founded on a falsehood.

Your freedom of thought is the only true freedom you have, don’t just surrender it to others who want you to do their bidding.

 

soooooooooo

Um… Civilisation.
Anyone tried the mod yet?

 

I’m tempted but I’m trying to avoid getting back into Civ V. Wayyyy too many hours have been spent on it already! -_-

You must find that people often only “dig skin deep into issues” with you. I think you might have the wrong idea about why that is though.

 

caitsith01,

People caught discussing/fighting about politics on this forum shall be shot. Multiple times. Also really want to see if this mod is any good, but not sure I can be motivated to buy the damn game. Really not sure if it’s my thing.
