Sukritact is a well known name amongst modding communities of Civ 6, Civ 5… even Cities: Skylines. Their 59 (at last count) Civ 6 mods alone cover everything from new leaders to new districts, and even sub-mods for other popular overhauls like the ancient world total conversion mod, Anno Domini.
Their latest release is ‘Sukritact’s Egypt Rework’, a mod that overhauls the existing Egyptian Civ 6 civ to be less passive and require more planning to take advantage of Egypt’s traditional strengths around river tiles. Also, Sukritact hates Sphinxes, apparently: “Plus, I hate the Sphinx conceptually. It feels a bit like giving France a gargoyle for a tile improvement if you ask me. It’s been removed, and it ain’t coming back.”
Note, this mod doesn’t do anything to change Egypt’s Civ 6 leader, Cleopatra, nor does it touch or alter Egypt’s unique unit. The civilisation’s new ability is called ‘Season of Inundation’, while its unique district is the ‘Set-Ma’at’. The former reads: “For every other district of the same type built along the same river, city centres receive +1 amenity, and specialty districts provide +1 of the appropriate yield. Tiles are immune to flood damage, and specialty districts next to a river provide a burst of the appropriate yield whenever the river floods.”
