Overview[edit | edit source]

In CivCraft, governments play an important role in how you manage and optimize the towns in your civ. Each kind of government has benefits and drawbacks and it will be up to the the leader and advisers to decide which government type is best for them. Additionally, governments have been designed to be as realistic as possible while still being balanced and relevant to Minecraft.

Changing Governments[edit | edit source]

Leaders and Advisers have the power to change a Civilization's government. Once the required technology is available, you can switch your government using the "/civ gov change" command. "/civ gov info" shows you information about your current government. And "/civ gov list" shows the governments currently available to your civ.

Command Example
/civ gov change [type] /civ gov change monarchy

Note: Changing your Government will always take 24 hours. (so you have to pay one time - next upkeep - your normal upkeep * 5) So choose wisely and try to don't change Government so often. Exception, if you have got the wonder Notre Dame, in this case Government will change instantly.
