    Hi guys,

    Would you consider adding a Civilization Call to Power 1 & 2 Category Folder in the Downloads section for fans to add content?

    Apolyton used to take care of all that but now that their downloads are all gone some the content is either hard to find or lost completely. Would be nice if fans could salvage some of that content to here. I've got the Apolyton packs for both games and a few other things. I also know where to dig up some of the long lost files on webarchive so I could put a few things in there to help people.

    Done. Two new resource categories created: "Civilization: Call to Power Downloads" and "Call to Power 2 Downloads".

    PM me or another Admin if anything appears awry.

    Have added the important downloads to both the CTP1 Downloads and CTP2 Downloads pages eg official patches, unofficial patches, apolyton addon packs, and super world maps. Even went full OCD and added icons lol. Had some upload errors so for the moment all links are linking offsite to web.archive.org backups of the lost Apolyton downloads section. Web archive have been around for like 20yrs so hopefully the files they host aren't going anywhere!

    Have run out of time but I've noticed a lot of people have been struggling to find the popular Celestial Dawn and Medieval mods for both games so I'll try and dig them up at some point too.

    Okay tonight I've added the big popular CTP1&2 mods such as Celestial Dawn, Medieval mods, Cradle of Civilizations, and Ages of Man. All of them are using offsite web archive links again except for the Medieval mods which were in quite a sorry state with broken up zips (separate main, pics, svn zips) across multiple sites, some out of date and some corrupted. I had to painstakingly find the best versions of each separate zip, then combine, then test with my CTP installs and then repack into a nice small 7zip file to upload here (had no upload problems this time, my troubles yesterday were prob due to trying to upload exe files haha).

    I also added screenshots to many of the downloads I put up yesterday. Made improvements to their links and documentation using readme's and archived Apolyton descriptions as sources. Will probably need to touch up tonights uploads a bit more in the coming days too.

    There's still gazillion call to power 1 and 2 mods and scenarios out there but getting them all over here is definitely in the too hard basket haha. The important thing is that the biggest most popular mods are now in a safe and easy to find place here! If people start asking for the more obscure stuff well it was all thankfully backed up by web archive and can be found at the links below:
