Gjum (variously /ʌm/, /ʌm/, or /ɡjʌm/) is a Civ player, toolmaker, and developer. First joining Civ on Civcraft 3.0 with Aquila, his citizenships include Aquila (Devoted 3.0), where he served as Chief Justice, and Impasse (CivClassic).

Gjum has maintained and hosted the widely used community maps for most mainline servers, including CivClassic, Civcraft 3.0, Devoted 3.0, and CivMC. In a January 2024 poll, Gjum placed third for all-time out of game contributions, behind ttk2 and ProgrammerDan[1].

Gjum has a CivTCG card named after him.


Gjum created the CivMap project, which provides interactive maps for several Civ servers:

CivBooks is a webpage where you can read full books written on Civcraft 1.0-3.0, Devoted 2.0/3.0 and CivClassic.

RecipeTree is a web tool to calculate resources required to run FactoryMod recipes on CivClassic (see also CivTopWolf's fork for the CivRealms version).

Created several Civ mods:

Updated some Civ mods such as SnitchMaster and CivRadar (but prefers CombatRadar now).

Civ Timeline

First played Civ during Civcraft 3.0, struggling in Concordia for a few newfriend days before moving to Aquila. Helped revive Aquila on Devoted 3.0, later filling the position of Chief Justice. When CivClassic launched, he joined the returning OG Aquilans to make Impasse. With CivRealms activity rising and the Mir-NATO War making CivClassic less and less enjoyable, in May 2020 he decided to leave CivClassic and play on CivRealms.
