UnCiv is an open-source Desktop port of Civ V to Linux, Windows, and Java 8 (for Mac OS X)

Android Version is HERE: UnCiv is a clone of the most famous empire-building game ever for Android 4 & up

There is still a lot of work to do ... but it is PLAYABLE Now!!!!

What is this?

An open-source Android/Desktop port of Civ V, Made with LibGDX on Android Studio

What's the roadmap?

Is this order:

    Polish! As you may have noticed, Unciv is fully functional but rough around the edges. This means:
        UI+UX improvements (suggestions welcome!)
        Better automation, AI etc. in-game
    Development and distribution cycle
        Automated tests - done!
        Automated F-droid and Google Play version deployment
        Standalone Desktop executables
    Missing features from Vanilla - Natural wonders, city-state quests, missing civs etc.
    G&K mechanics - religion, faith etc.
    BNW mechanics - trade routes etc.

How can I help?

If you're a programmer, get started at the Wiki!

You can join us in any of the open issue, or work on improving anything you want - once you're finished, issue a pull request and it'll go into the next version!

If not, you can help by spreading the word - vote for Unciv where you can, mention it on Reddit or Twitter etc, and help us with new ideas of how to get the word out!

If you REALLY want to donate for some reason, I have a Patreon page here!''

How can I translate to {language}?


Like most open-source projects, Unciv is developed at Github

The translation files are at

When you feel that you're ready to add your translation to the game, you'll need to create a merge request, which takes your changes and puts them into the main version of the game - it's pretty straightforward once you do it

Do as much as you're comfortable with - it's a big game with a lot of named objects, so don't feel pressured into doing everything =)

You don't need to download anything, all translation work can be done on the Github website :)

Note that Right-to-Left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew are not supported by the framework :/

Will you implement {feature}?

If it's in the original Civ V, then yes!

There's a lot left to implement, so it's hard to give an estimation of when exactly each feature will be added, but we're constantly improving!

If not, then the feature won't be added until we've finished all the features from the original Civ - as mentioned, this will take a while!

Please add {Civilization}

THE most common request, hands down. Everyone wants their favorite Civ in the game, I get that. But there are so many other things to work on - automations, AI, UI, graphics, bugs, and of course other features from the original game that are currently missing. Eventually we'll have them all, but the key word is "eventually".

Will you implement Civ VI?

Maybe, once we've finished with all of Civ V. But considering how long it took to get this far, Civ VII may be out by then.

Is there a desktop version?

There are standalone zip files for each operating system in Releases which contain everything needed for Unciv to run

If you have Java 8, and are familiar with the command line, there are (considerably smaller) JARs in Releases which you can run with java -jar Unciv.jar

Be aware that the game will generate files inside the folder where the Jar is located!
