Formerly known as the 11:59 (An AoC2 mod) Discord Server, we have recently rebranded ourselves to cover all of Age of Civilisations, and with the departure of 'Strategy Hub A G E' (formerly the largest Age of Civilisations II Server) to general strategy games (and also a mass ban wave), it's safe for us to say that we are now the largest AoC2 server, with a fair slice of activity. It's not like we exclude members of other grand strategy/strategy games (or just games in general) though.
This AoC2 Discord server runs on a democratic system, and we have no secret channels that users aren't able to access.

So What Is 11:59?
11:59 is a total overhaul mod that focuses on historical accuracy as well as gameplay. Basically everything has been changed or altered, save for the core game mechanics or unmoddable pieces of the game. The feature list includes a brand new Decisions mechanic, (this will popup if your country has decisions scripted for it), a DEFCON mechanic (which is still work-in-progress), map changes, such as the 38th parallel in Korea (pictured below), West Berlin; canals, such as the Kiel Canal, the Panama Canal, and the Suez Canal. A brand new interface has been implemented. The soundtrack has been completely redone, and the list of tracks expanded to 52. There are now ~100 events, some of which are events that influence the AI's decisions (these events only popup for the AI, never the player) to ensure that it stays somewhat historical within the supported scenario: The Bear And The Eagle. Even more features such as custom province pictures for certain cities, the United Nations, and states and regions are also mentioned below.
Furthermore, the soundtrack has been completely redone, with 53 new songs. The interface has also been completely redone, so has the states (regions in the base game). Nothing has been spared. (Download by viewing our ModDB profile).
11:59 also features a realistic world map:
Colourized Event Images:
A Completely Redone Interface:
Detailed Demographic Maps:
Detailed Administrative Divisions, complete with ~120 new provinces, and 1.309 new states:
New Terrain Pictures are also planned:
More features are evidently planned for the next release, 0.9b: The Sun Finally Set, with new decolonisation mechanics:
I was able to run the game fine on mac, by opening it though browsing game files. I have played over 45 hours. The mac used to be listed as platform in the steam store. Now it is gone, and because my game did not update and I was not aware of the platform being removed I deleted it and tried to reinstall. This was an unpleasant surprise as now I cannot download of play the game anymore. Why remove mac as platform if it worked fine?
