You are a God! You are master and ruler of a loyal nation. You have unimaginable powers at your disposal. You have claimed this world as yours. But there are others who stand in your way. You must defeat and destroy these pretenders. Only then can you ascend to godhood and become the new Pantokrator. When you start the game you decide what kind of god you are and how your DOMINION affects your lands and followers. It is an expression of your divine might and the faith of your followers. If your dominion dies, so do you. Your dominion also inspires your sacred warriors and gives them powers derived from your dominion. In order to win and become the one true god you have to defeat your enemies one of three different ways: conquer their lands, extinguish their dominion or claim the Thrones of Ascension. Release version and manual is available now. Manual can be downloaded from Illwinter's web page.

About Project Omniomicon with 3 comments by Pymous on Apr 8th, 2015

Hello everyone,

First thanks for all your feedback, support and kind messages I received in last few months (even some donation! Amazing!). This is awesome and wasn’t expecting it at all considering our “niche” community.

Neboled, the Pretender God leading a Ledan army Plavendel vs Ledan

Initially wanted to wait the dominions patch 4.18 before posting a news associated to a major
Omniomicon update (3rd chapter), but we don’t know when this official patch will be available, so you won an intermediate update in the meantime.

Patch 1.1 content

This patch mainly updates both Ledan and Plavendel god pretenders costs to reflect new cost mechanics introduced in the official 4.17 dominions 4 patch. It also provides Plavendel with some national heroes and important gameplay changes. Unfortunately some important events modding commands still don’t work in 4.17 (but seems fixed for 4.18) and I am waiting the next patch to update and add some national events.

Project Omniomicon - PublicBeta 1.1

The full changelog is listed below:

What’s coming next?

Many things are planned and ongoing but the main objectives for the next update are:
- Update / Add National events
- Add missing Plavendel national heroes and their descriptions
- Add national items
- Releasing Alpha version of the next nation (3rd chapter) : Smerv

In parallel I am also working on the first Lore Book about Ledan civilization. While very time consuming (many artworks, page book template design, icons/symbol designs, stats tables, etc…) this is very exciting for me and hopefully I’ll be able to show you some pages preview in next months.

Finally and again, don’t hesitate to give feedback, propose ideas and report bugs so I can continue to improve this total conversion project!

Thanks again for your support, and enjoy!

MP host fails


I am hosting a MP game since beta. Today, when I try to host, D4 (uder desura) fails and I have this error (always the same) : NAYgotr gick fel! no space left on bg (67*38,1) (x22, y18 rs0). I have tried several times, I have reloaded order files, I have reinstalled with a backup done before hosting. I have tried also to play with a different DR4 install under steam. No way. Always the same error.

Can I get help ? I can provide the savegame directory of any files you would like to see.

This is not urgent, This is Xmas truce.

Launch Desura, click the button in the games list to update it.

Or, download the latest installer from this page here on the right panel.

Click on the "Keys" link.

This page seems to be well hidden for some reason, unless I'm just missing something. I always search google for "desura keys page" when I need to get there. I wish Desura would make it easier to find.

Well, as a newcomer to Doms world, it may seems an exageration score. But as a veteran player, more oriented to strategy (TBS mainly: Civ saga, HOMM, Age of Wonders saga, Fallen Enchantres and many more on this style), this game is simply THE GAME. I've frecuently read that dominions games are not for everybody. The learning curve and the micromanagement required are very important. And they increase as the turns goes on. I think that only by digging deep and reading guides you can get the juice…

How can people play this game with such a terrible User Interface? It does not even let you do something basic like saving the setup of your troops for quickly reusing at another time. You can save a copy of the orders but not the placing, so you have to individually place each group of troops each and every time even if you just want an identical copy of your previous setup. This might be a decent game if you have the patience but there is so much room for improvement it is embarrassing and the…
