Top10 Civilization 5 mods


  • Top 10 Civilization V mods

    Civlization V hasn’t been out for long, but there’s already a wealth of user made maps, mods and scenarios available. Here’s our pick of the best from the early rush of Civ V mods. Whether you want to rebalance the economy, change the pace of the game, or play on a huge, scale version of the planet Earth, there’s something for you in the selection below.

    Civilization V has a great mod browser built into it. It helps you search for the highest rated mods as voted by the community. All of the mods on this list can be downloaded and installed from inside the game, but you can follow the links for information on each one.

    1. Dale’s Earth Map

    Civilization V has plenty of nations, each imbued with their own sense of personality, but the game’s randomly generated worlds means you’re never playing on the actual countries they represent. Dale’s True Start Map Pack adds a decent world map with a built in scenario that puts every nation in its right place. For some, playing on a carefully modelled facsimile of our own planet takes the surprise and discovery out of the exploration element of the game, but the more you play, the less familiar the world becomes until you’re looking at a vision of what the world would look like with the Songhai Empire as the dominant superpower.

      For me, it is only emotionally angry.

      You need to work on self-expression. Write a poem and put a video of you reciting it on YouTube. I promise to feature it in the spotlight

    An interesting article at The Escapist about Civilization and some of the goings-on behind the scenes at Firaxis: I have a lot of problems with the methods Firaxis tested this with. Turning off barbs, limiting AI expansion ... those are two critical factors for how big an impact waiting to found your first city will be. I myself like to move the other unit first, see if there's a good spot to move ...
