    There are 2 mods which I want to change a bit.
    1. The images and text for a civilization
    2. The images of units in the display. Not the the units themselves.

    Do I need several programs for this?

    It did depends on the text file, but you should be able to use Notepad or a similar program.

    For the text, you'll need a plain text editor - something like Notepad or Notepad++
    For the images (assuming you mean the icons that are displayed in the UI and not the animated models), you'll need a graphics program that can create the DDS format or a converter from a more common format (such as jpeg/png) to DDS

    Thanks. :)
    I think it's not so easy with Gimp, but I'll try.

    There's a DDS plug-in for GIMP. I used it all the time without any troubles on my old Win8 computer. I just updated to Win10 with a new computer but I haven't downloaded GIMP as yet to see if there's an issue with using GIMP on Win10.

    An other graphics program that load and save .dds : paint.net
    Very light, very simple to handle and free, with tons of tutorials and plugins
