Civilization VI: John Curtin Leads Australia


John Curtin was the 14th Prime Minister of Australia, serving from 1941 to 1945. He held office while the country was under direct threat of Japanese attack during World War II. He proved more than capable for the job through his landmark legislations, which greater unified the many states of Australia and assisted in its reconstruction following the war.  

Curtin, leader of the Labor Party, sadly passed away while in office on July 5, 1945. He left behind a legacy of progressive social reform and civic responsibility that ensured he will forever be remembered as one of Australia’s most influential citizens.


Unique Unit: The Digger

Nicknamed “Diggers,” Australian troops served the Commonwealth with honor and distinction in both World War I and II, on multiple continents, and often at considerable sacrifice. Their slouch hat pinned up on one side became a distinctive part of their uniform.


Unique Improvement: The Outback Station

Australian cattle ranches are called Outback Stations and are synonymous with life in the Australian Outback. The largest, Anna Creek Station, is 6,000,000 acres (24,000 km squared; 9,400 sq mi) which makes it slightly larger than Israel and seven times larger than the biggest ranch in the US – King Ranch, in Texas. Many Stations still serve their original purpose as cattle ranches, while others have been converted into Outback experiences for tourists keen to sample the country life.

Civilization VI ‘Australian Summer 2017 Update’ Now Live


This update for Civilization VI, available today for all Steam users, includes some great new features, including premium DLC for the Australia civ (led by Prime Minister John Curtin) as well as free features for all players such as Steam Workshop and modding tools, as well as multiplayer team functionality.

Multiplayer teams and mod tools have been two of the community’s most-requested features, and we’re happy to bring them to Civilization VI. Steam Workshop will allow you to browse, add, and subscribe to mods more easily, and the other tools will make it easier for artists and modders to change the game. And in multiplayer you can team up with your friends to conquer the world together against AI or human opponents.

There are also balance changes and bug fixes in this update, ranging from trade routes to ice caps, obsolete units to AI upgrades. Please check out the complete list of changes below:

[NEW]

  • TEAMS:
  • Multiplayer Teams have been added to Civilization VI and this feature builds on updates to the Alliance agreement. Players on teams gain additional benefits (beyond those of an alliance), as follows:
    • When one teammate finishes research on a tech or civic, their teammate(s) receive a boost for that tech or civic.
    • Teammates share war status against opponents not on their team.
    • Teammates share allied status with opponents not on their team.
    • Teammates work together to win or lose the game as a single entity.  The Religion and Culture Victories have been reworked so they are more cooperative.
      • The Religion Victory requires you to convert all civs to ONE of the religions started by your team.
      • The Culture Victory requires ONE member of your team to be culturally dominant over all players NOT on your team.
    • MODDING TOOLS
      • Updated lobby and in-game UI to better show Additional Content details.
      • Added Sid Meier’s Civilization VI Development Tools, which includes ModBuddy, Tools, FireTuner, and the Steam Workshop Uploader.

        • Art/Asset Tools: Import FBX files into a format usable by the game, as well as customize existing art.
        • FireTuner: In-game debugging and editing tool.
      • Added Sid Meier’s Civiliation VI Development Assets, which includes the game art assets. This is a large download (approximately 7GB compressed download and 27GB on disk) which contains game assets, including models, textures, and interface elements.
      • STEAM WORKSHOP
        • Access mods created by the Steam community via Steam Workshop
        • Share your mods with the Steam community with the Steam Workshop uploader.

ModBuddy will also receive additional updates in the future, as part of a modding SDK update later. These tools do not include DLL source for Civilization VI at this time.

  • Added a City-State slider to game setup.

[BALANCE CHANGES]

  • Many of the techs that reveal strategic resources have been changed to reveal the resource before it is needed to build a resource-dependent unit.
  • Players can now build obsoleted units if they do not have access to the strategic resource required by the upgrade unit.
  • Tech Tree balance. Adding several prerequisites to address paths through the tree that were too quick and led to era transitions too early.
    • Horseback Riding now requires Archery. Archery is no longer a leaf tech.
    • Stirrups is now in the late Medieval era and costs 390 (was early Medieval and cost 300).
    • Industrialization now requires Square Rigging.
    • Scientific Theory now requires Banking.
    • Steel now requires Rifling.
    • Computers now requires Radio.

  • Tuned strategic and luxury resource trading.
  • Will now be more aware of gold income, and work to bring in more.
  • Support units will recognize that they are not under threat if they share a hex with a friendly unit.

Australia Civilization & Scenario Pack

The team is often asked how they get their ideas for the civilizations in the game. The answer is: they listen to the community! Kongo was added to Civilization VI, as it was the most-requested civ by the community at the end of Civilization V. Australia has been a consistent top pick by our fans, and now appears in a Civilization game for the first time as premium DLC for Civilization VI.  

John Curtin was Australia’s Prime Minister during World War II, and is credited with providing both strong leadership of the country at that time, as well as establishing the country to take its place in the post-war international order. In Civilization VI, his ability “Citadel of Civilization” gives Australia bonus production when they are targeted for war.

Australia is a civ that gets bonus housing for coastal cities, bonuses for building Districts on attractive terrain, and additional production if targeted for war. Australia’s unique unit is the Digger (which replaces Infantry), and their unique improvement is the Outback Station. Australia can grow and thrive in places where other civs would struggle. The Outback Tycoon scenario is a unique, non-combat scenario where you will try to enrich your new territory in a randomly-generated Australian interior. And Uluru comes to Civilization VI, bringing religion and culture to the territory that surrounds it.
  • AUSTRALIA DLC:
    • Australia
      • Civ Unique Ability: Australian coastal cities always receive extra Housing. Pastures also trigger the Culture Bomb effect, grabbing adjacent tiles from other civs and City-States.  Yields from Campuses, Commercial Hubs, Holy Sites and Theater Squares are enhanced in attractive terrain.
      • John Curtin Unique Ability: John Curtin’s unique ability is called “Citadel of Civilization.” Australia gets bonus production at the start of a Defensive War, and when it liberates a city.
      • Digger: Australia’s unique unit is the Digger, which gets bonuses to combat on land tiles adjacent to water and when fighting outside their territory.
      • Outback Station: Unique tile improvement that unlocks with the Guilds civic, and can be upgraded with Steam Power and Rapid Deployment. It provides food and production, with bonus food for adjacent Pastures.
    • ‘Outback Tycoon’ Scenario
      • In this 60 turn non-combat scenario, you race to explore Australia, find its natural resources, and use them to enrich your colony. This competitive economic scenario has no combat. It emphasizes exploration and territorial expansion to increase your Gold per Turn net income, which is your score.
    • Uluru Natural Wonder: This desert Wonder provides bonus Faith and Culture to Adjacent tiles.

About This Game

Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.

Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.

  • EXPANSIVE EMPIRES:

    See the marvels of your empire spread across the map like never before. Each city spans multiple tiles so you can custom build your cities to take full advantage of the local terrain.
  • ACTIVE RESEARCH:

    Unlock boosts that speed your civilization’s progress through history. To advance more quickly, use your units to actively explore, develop your environment, and discover new cultures.
  • DYNAMIC DIPLOMACY:

    Interactions with other civilizations change over the course of the game, from primitive first interactions where conflict is a fact of life, to late game alliances and negotiations.
  • COMBINED ARMS:

    Expanding on the “one unit per tile” design, support units can now be embedded with other units, like anti-tank support with infantry, or a warrior with settlers. Similar units can also be combined to form powerful “Corps” units.
  • ENHANCED MULTIPLAYER:

    In addition to traditional multiplayer modes, cooperate and compete with your friends in a wide variety of situations all designed to be easily completed in a single session.
  • A CIV FOR ALL PLAYERS:

    Civilization VI provides veteran players new ways to build and tune their civilization for the greatest chance of success. New tutorial systems introduce new players to the underlying concepts so they can easily get started.
