The Old God has left the world and the pretenders are awakening and coming out from hiding. You start the game by designing one of the pretender gods that will compete for true ascension to godhood. The type of god can range from a magically powerful arch mage to an ancient kraken or a mystic monolith that people pray to. Your pretender controls one of over sixty different nations and with the help of that nation he will spread his word and battle the other pretenders. Dominions 3 is a turn based strategy game. You can play single- or multiplayer (1 - 23 players) with simultaneous turns. There are more than 1500 different units, 600 spells and 300 magic items in the game. The game also features a medieval musical score by Erik Ask Uppmark and Anna Rynefors, both awarded the title of Musicians of the Realm by the Swedish Zornmärkeskommiten. Dominions 3 is a highly detailed game and a 300 page pdf manual is included in the download.

To celebrate the release of Dominions on Desura, I would like to announce the latest release of the Dominions 3 mod editing tool dom3editor (version 1.1). For those who don't know this is a visual editor for .dm files that includes many features of a modern integrated development environment included syntax coloring, code completion, error checking, integrated help and an overview mode where you won't have to write a single line of code if you don't want to. The major changes in this release are:
Here are some screenshots to give you an idea. This first one is editing the CBM1.94 "Storm Knight". You can see the description and some of the attirbutes of the new unit. The second screenshot is the source view of the same unit.
There are versions of this tool for Windows, Linux and Mac. If you already have the tool installed, you can just download the patch file and exteact it into your dom3editor directory (files should go in the plugin directory). All this can be downloaded from:
There is a wiki with some description of using the tool here:
This is an open source project, so the source is available from the Google code location above.

Yes, I am working on a Dom 4 version. The parsing and mod creation is complete. I am just waiting on the dom4db to get all of the data embedded into the app.
