A Civil War is a game mechanic which splits a large civilization into two different nations if its capital city is captured. The original Civilization remains at war with the conquering Civilization but new Civilization has a neutral attitude towards the conquering Civilization.

Civil War conditions

A civilization may go into Civil War if its capital falls and:

  • Conquered by a Civilization smaller than it
  • Must have at least 6 cities
  • Must have a capital city
  • Must have high corruption rate in many of its cities
  • A different "color" is available. If the player chooses 7 civilizations and no Civilizations have fallen than Civil Wars are not possible
  • The capital is conquered before a certain date?
