I don't like the new brown background. It makes text harder to read. Maybe a paler brown?

CONCEPT: Rogue Planetfall

I have really felt that Civilization has needed alien sponsors once more. Specifically, two. That hate eachother. I present to you, spiritual successors to the aliens of the Sixth Manifold, as well as two new victory types.


  • 1 Rogue Planetfall
    • 1.1 Planetary Panel
    • 1.2 Progenitor Beacon Monument
      • 1.2.1 Chironi Mavericks


Once one sponsor has met all Sponsors in the game, that sponsor forms a Planetary Panel. The planetary panel allows global laws to be put in place, such as:

-          Change in Production cost of units or buildings

-          Bonuses for sponsors with a certain Affinity: amounts vary for the level of Affinity obtained

-          Sanctions on certain Stations, cities or entire sponsors

-          Combat bonuses against aliens

-          Monuments

By MeepTMW


Hi! I'm MeepTMW, a fairly new editor here at Civilization Wiki, but a long time SMAC and Beyond Earth player. I've also played Civilization V a lot, but have falled in love with the science fiction here again. I've helped develop unit-based pages for Beyond Earth with nice pictures and useful information as well as a little bit of strategy here and there. After realising that wiki pages are usually better to be non-biased and contain mostly factual ideas, I'm building a guide here for what I see as the strategies of Beyond Earth.

Quotes from wonders and technologies that aren't from the regular leaders

I really enjoy the quotes on BE from the sponsors everytime a wonder or a technology was announced. I added the quotes that game from the actual leaders onto the leader pages. However several of these quotes were not made by these leaders.

I am going to take a little break from BERT and this wiki. I figured I would put this out there if anyone wanted to mess with it. Enjoy.

Stupid AI

I find good ol' Civ 5 incredibly frustrating in one aspect: attempting to be peaceful and friendly with the computer players. On Warlord difficulty, I was just playing as , and had a long Friendly relationship with , about 300 turns. I joined in an classical era war, we traded frequently, and made several declarations of friendship. I was aiming for a diplomatic victory, so I hadn't been in a war since Wu and I eliminated Hiawatha from the game. The only negative I had with her was "They believe you are building new cities too aggressively!" I had only built one new city in many, many turns. Then, suddenly, she is denouncing me. It does not make sense to me that she could flip so abruptly from Friendly to Denouncing, followed by Guarded. I…

How to use Lua flies?

I copied these two messages that are meant to explain how to use the lua language on this site. This was written for future reference.


Hey there, I'd be happy to tell you about Lua powered templates and how to work them, the best way to do that would be to contact me using one of the methods listed on my profile so I could answer your questions directly, or you can always ask them here like you did of course.

Latest updates of Rising Tide

Rising Tide will be released on October 9th, 2015, i.e. in less than two weeks! The game is already pre-orderable on Steam.

All of the four new factions have now been revealed: Al Falah, North Sea Alliance, INTEGR and, as the most recently revealed faction, the Chungsu. As a fun fact, INTEGR is led by a German lady named Lena Ebner, named so after Firaxis's beloved producer Lena Brenk, who recently moved from Firaxis to 2K.

Firaxis has produced nice little featurettes demonstrating the new aspects of Rising Tide, the newest one having been published earlier today:


The previous one was about the revamped diplomacy system:


And the first one was about the much anticipated new aquatic gameplay:

Suggested To do list Pre-BERT. Volunteers?

I am certainly no stranger to wikis, and I know they expand in bursts of activity, with huge lulls of time in between. I can not sustain this activity because of my personal life. I figure I would write a few suggestions of things, I don't have time or simply do not know how to do, of suggested changes and maybe a few different people will do one or two bullet points. I do plan on staying off this site at least until Rising Tide is released. Hopefully, I will have more time to work on this site. That being said, when the expansion is released, why in the heck would I spend my free time here. I should be playing the game.

What's new in Rising Tide


I was lucky enough to play the first 150 turns in Civilization: Beyond Earth Rising Tide, Firaxis' generous expansion to last year's exoplanet-faring 4X. I'm happy to report that, based on what I played, Rising Tide represents a major addition to the mechanics established in Beyond Earth's core game. Water may be the obvious update, but Firaxis has also made a number of significant changes to the underlying systems, all of which work to empower the player, giving him or her more tools to achieve the civilization they want.

Starships Interactive Ship Viewer (Supremacy)

Thanks to the hard work of one skilled fan and some Wikia engineers, you can now take a Supremacy Battleship from Sid Meier's Starships for a spin - literally. You can literally spin the ship around

The interactive ship viewer (Supremacy) is great because you can really see how Affinity directs humanity's technological advancement in the Civilization: Beyond Earth universe. The slick metallic finish of this Battleship intimates, at a glance, the ideals of Supremacy and how its followers adopt cybernetic implants and technology as a means of evolutionary advancement. Kudos to the talented folks at Firaxis Games responsible for creating such a pronounced visual aesthetic.

2K has posted a blog detailing how affinities from Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth will be represented and expanded on in Sid Meier's Starships. Each affinity has been treated to a sleek visual update to represent the time difference between the games, but there's more to it than that:

These differences in Affinity in Starships are more than just cosmetic. Affinities also have gameplay advantages in Starships for the player. Supremacy begins the game with a Wonder, representing the achievements of their advanced technology, a powerful bonus that applies from the start, and which can guide the development of the entire fleet and its tactical approach. Purity gains double rewards from each mission, through the skillful work of the flee…

From Beyond Earth to Starships: Leader Affinity Evolved

SId Meier's Starships takes place many years after the conclusion of your game of Civilization: Beyond Earth . Over this period of time, each Sponsor's leader and the Affinities - Harmony, Supremacy and Purity - guiding their progression have evolved dramatically. This not only plays out in the look of each leader, but also in the way your fleet operates in Sid Meier's companion game, Starships. 

To help illustrate the hard work put in by the game artists as well as help paint a picture for how these two games are tied together in the same universe, the Beyond Earth and Starships teams synced up to produce a piece on the Civilization.com blog. Give it a read!

Graphs about this wiki

Using the database dump of this wiki, a little application to parse it, LibreOffice and Photoshop I created a couple of graphs about the development of this wiki:




The file count seems to match very accurately to what Special:Statistics is saying. The number of articles in my graph (~6250) is higher than what this wiki reports (currently ), but that's probably because of how MediaWiki counts articles, i.e. it has some heuristic to exclude short articles or unreachable pages. Redirects should not be included in my number, but I admit I also need to test my software and study the MediaWiki XML logic some more. The reason the data series values don't all start from zero is that a few articles and their histories have been imported from Wikipedi…

Live Starships demo from PAX South

If you weren't able to make it to the inaugural PAX South last weekend then you missed the Firaxis Megapanel, which included a live Starships demo from creator Sid Meier himself! We were sad you didn't make it, but we guess we can forgive you. 

We filmed the panel, which spoke a bit about the connections to Beyond Earth with co-lead designers David McDonough and Will Miller prior to Sid jumping into the live demo.  Sid Meier's Starships is set in the same universe as Beyond Earth and takes place hundreds of years after Beyond Earth's endgame.

The Polygon site just published an article with some new information on the upcoming Sid Meier's Starships game, based on the information Sid Meier himself revealed at the PAX South event on Saturday. Some interesting points:

  • The game focuses on RPG-like progression of the systems of the starships
  • The Affinities from Beyond Earth make a return
  • It's turn-based and takes place on a hex-based maps, but the maps are dynamic and will change in the course of the game!
