    I'm not sure what's happened to the Civ 2 downloads, but it's now very confused and disorganized. It seems to have some Civ3 and even Civ1 content. Scenarios are mixed with maps and graphics, etc. Can you say what's going on? Thanks.

    Could you point to the section in the download database which has these issues?

    We did recently some reorganization to separate the MGE and ToT scenarios, and while I hope that everything was placed correctly, I'm not always entirely sure.

    EDIT: You can also use the report button to report misplaced items. We'll then put them in the right category.

    Civ2 Downloads section is a real dog's breakfast to be blunt. 36 pages, 709 items. The first 11 pages are maps, then some modpacks with a few scenarios mixed in, on page 16 more modpacks, then graphics (p22), modpacks and patches (p 23-34), graphics (p 27), then utliities and graphics, some with no descriptions or screen shots. Page 31 has more maps and MGE scenarios mixed with ToT ones, p 32 graphics, pg23 graphics and scenarios and p 36 has civ program downloads and patches.

    On the main section you will get everything shown what is in the subsections (in chronological order).
    If you want to have a better selection, you'll just click on the subsections (on the left), and you'll only get scenarios, maps, and other things :).

    e.g. only ToT scenarios: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/categories/civ2-tot-scenarios.79/
    e.g. only MGE modpacks: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/categories/civ2-mge-modpacks.168/

    Thanks very much. I usually go via the downloads button at the top of the screen of my favourite forum. Is there any way to give it a similar menu?

    (edit) Never mind, I see it now. Thanks very much! :goodjob:
