World War II - 1939 v 1.15b 2016-10-05


Version 1.15 Beta for Sid Meier's Civilization IV Warlords 2.08

The mod works on 2.08 version - so probably running it on warlords patched to 2.13 will crash the game. Sorry for inconvenience

Here's thread:

Check out our forum:


It contains:
- Complete new tech tree with 91 technologies allowing you to build warfare from 1935 to 1952 - from early tanks, bombers and infantry to ICBM with hydrogen bomb warheads. Discover new civics, religions, promotions. Get advantage using wonder warfare and discovering new techs earlier than your enemies.

And all who helped a lot - not directly connected to mod, but without theire work the mod won't be so good. Thx goes for: Nautil, Sharick, Chamaedrys, ArdRaeiss, charly1977, HROCHland, Rabbit,White, TheLopez, Dale, jimkatalanos, AlazkanAssassin, snipperrabbit!!, ohcrapitsnico, woodelf, Chugginator, Elhoim, esnaz, frenchman, C.Roland, KarlX, Iuvavus, Raslin, Swarog, Fëanor, Robo Magic Man, krowtrobot, Rhye, team, Wojtas, asso, Osprey Publishing, Wydawnictwo Militaria, Firaxis, Gamebryo, and others (sorry if i forgot someone)...


Just run the installation file and setup it to your mods directory in warlords.
By default it installs to C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods\

Apparently Vista has two Program Files. One is for Vista, the other is for (x86).
So install mod using following string for Vista users:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Warlords\Mods\WW2 1939

Some users eno****er problem with white flags - it's an issue with using some graphic crds. However it can be fixed. In case you have this problem (If you havn't the white flag problem don't install it!) install this patch - just unpack (for unpacking .zip you may use this freeware tool and move folder Assets to the WW2 1939 folder localized in Warlords\Mods\ folder. Overwrite all files and enjoy game with full color flags.

The mod is made (atm) in two languages. English by default and Polish wich replace French. The rest is one great mess - still it's under fixing. Even after fixing you'll find some issues with letters -> some west european are shown as central european and the English words are mixed with for example Spanish. So it's highly recommended to use english language.
You can switch this in options menu - Go to menu and switch Polish language (or any other) to English or in CivilizationIV.ini in My Documents\My Games\Warlords\ Folder
Switch from Language = 1 to Language = 0 . So it should look like this:
; English(0),French(1),German(2),Italian(3),Spanish( 4) - Defaults to user-installed language
Language = 0

Mod jest zrobiony w dwóch językach - angielskim i polskim (domyślnie zastępującym język francuski). Zeby wyswietlić dobrze teksty potrzebujesz zainstalować do Twojej wersji warlords - nieoficjalne spolszczenie, które możesz znaleźć tutaj:
Jeśli nie masz domyślnie włączonego języka polskiego możesz go ustawić w menu w opcjach lub w pliku CivilizationIV.ini w My Documents\My Games\Warlords\ Folder
zminić z Language = 0 do Language = 1 . wiec powinno wyglądać tak:
; English(0),French(1),German(2),Italian(3),Spanish( 4) - Defaults to user-installed language
Language = 1

To play the game just load the mod (Choos Advanced -> Load Mod) - the game will restart and than choose one of the scenario to play.
You may setup to load mod automaticly in .ini file located in My Documents. You need to change it to:
; Specify a Mod folder (Mods\Mesopotamia), '0' for none
Mod = MODS\WW2 1939
