What are the precise requirements of the "Model of a Modern Major-General" achievement in Civilisation 5?



  • Model of a Modern Major-General

    Train all Units, across any number of playthrough.

    Is it known what the precise requirements are for this achievement?

    • Do you actually need to train all units, or is it sufficient to being gifted them by City States, or via promotion via Ancient Ruins? (like the Helicopter Gunship I acquired in a recent game :p)
    • I would assume that paying for promotion of a unit counts as "training it" - Or do they need to be built new?
    • Do you need to cover all country-specific unique units, or is the equivalent default unit sufficient? Eg, do you need to train a Janissary, a Musketeer and a Minutemen, or is just training Musketman sufficient?

    I notice that 0% of users on Steam have this achievement, so it's possible that it's bugged. Update: 0.1% now have the achievement, so it's apparently achievable.



  • You need to build all the basic units, plus all the civilization Unique Units from the original release nations (no DLC). I'm sure the UUs are required as I popped mine on a Naresuan's Elephant.

    It was a surprise to me, but the achievement logging has apparently been re-enabled at some point so you can check on your progress. Here's how (Hat tip to this CivFanatics forum post😞

    1. Navigate to My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 5 (my path for Win 7)
    2. Open config.ini and change the LoggingEnabled line from 0 to 1
    3. Run the game and it will create a text file called "achievements_debug.log" in your Logs directory under that Civ 5 folder

    Interesting note, the Spaceship parts are also tracked in this log, but I'm not sure if they're required or not for the achievement.
