Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Cultural Diversity is a mod aimed at emphasizing the variety of civilization. It does this by assigning base "Culture Types" to each civilization (including City-States), which allows for greater distinction between them, whilst maintaining a level of familiarity and consistency throughout. Where possible, each Culture Group has a unique soundtrack, a unique starting bonus, a unique event (with Sukritact's Events and Decisions), unique colonial city lists (with JFD's Exploration Continued Expanded), unique government preferences (with JFD's Sovereignty), unique era splash screens, unique embarkation graphics, unique unit dialogue, and unique unit graphics.

Certain civilizations also belong to "Sub-Culture Types," which further diversify soundtracks, splash screens, or unit graphics, whilst retaining the same overall theme of the culture group.
