I prefer the charming low res graphics of Civ1. But I kinda grew up with Civ2.
I haven't heard of one my self but that dosnt mean there isn't. I hardly ever played civ 1 so i cant remember what it looks like. It wouldnt be that hard would it 2 modify civ 2's graphics to make it look like civ 1? The same way we make new units and differnt terrain.
I wonder if it is even possible. That would be so cool if someone could make it.
Ill take a look at civ 1 and see what i think
Ill let you know how i get on
On closer inspection no i think it wouldn't be that easy , yes it could be done how i don't know. I might if I'm feeling nice do some experiments. It wont be 100% the same that's to hard but i could possibly make it look a bit like it .
anyone know how you print screen in dos?
There's a Civ1 modpack here ("Civilization 1 Modpack", about 2/3 down the page):
And a Civ1 world map here (the first map download link):
Wow great! Do modpacks actually change the gameplay? Ideally I would like Civ2 gameplay with Civ1 graphics.
EDIT: I have taken a look at the sprite files and it looks pretty cool! I have never modded Civ2 before. Is it possible for me to just overwrite the graphics files and not touch any of the gameplay stuff like RULES.TXT?
A mod pack can do both it depends on what its designed to do i haven't tried these so i don't know, if they just change the graphics or the game play to. Im guessing they must a bit to make it like Civ 1.
It is in theory possible to use just the grapic files from the mod and not the rules. Then you would in theory only be changing the graphics
In response to your edit, yes it is . Simply leave the rules out and use the graphic files .
I'm unsure of which files I can and can't copy across if I just want the graphics.
Can anyone advise?
hmm looking at my mod I'm working on atm, Id suggests the following to just change the graphics.
city (Possibly see if its differnt to the original)
files that end in gif, jpg or bmp are graphic files. Files that end in txt are the rules and games lables and so on.
Those are it let me know how you get on .
