Hi fellow civers, The mod in this post will help you and your team to better locate and communicate your positions. This is especially important in team games. You will find in this post a mod of the mini map that appears at the bottom left of your screen during your game. This mini map mod has a grid over it and displays letters (A to E) on the left and right side, and numbers from 1-9 on the top and bottom part of the mini map. After you have it installed, you can, for example, tell your teamate that you are located at E8 instead of simply southeast and he'll find you in no time. Download instructions: Please note that the following instruction is only for Civilization 3 Conquests Expansion pack players. Download the file located at the bottom of your desired picture shown below into the C: drive, in the folder, program files\infrogame interactive\civilization 3\art\interface. NOTE, THIS "ART" FOLDER SHOULD BE IN THE CIV 3 FOLDER, NOT THE ONE IN THE CONQUEST FOLDER!!!! Installation instructions: After downloading it, - rename your EXISTING "box left color.pcx" file to "old box left color.pcx". Then -rename the file included in this email, and take out the "(Rock`s v2.0)" or "(Rock`s v2.0bw)", etc. part from your downloaded file so your DOWNLOADED FILE INCLUDED IN THIS POSTING SHOULD NOW BE EXACTLY: "box left color.pcx". Next, -restart the civ game for the your new mod to show up in your game. Here are the previews and available versions for your choice: Traditionalist's black fonts on original Civ's minimap, at the start of game: Download Black Fonts On Original Minimap Traditionalist's red fonts on original Civ's minimap, at the start of game: Download Red Fonts On Original Minimap Minimalist's red fonts on black minimap, once all map has been explorered: Download Minimalist's Red Fonts On Black Minimap Minimalist's white fonts on black minimap, once all map has been explorered: Download Minimalist's White Fonts On Black Minimap Minimalist's black fonts on metalic minimap, at the start of game: Download Minimalist's Black Fonts On Metalic Minimap Hope you and your team find this mini map grid useful [KC]myRock Please let me know if you have any improvement suggestions, thanks firstname.lastname@example.org (I would like to thank Mythrandir & Simian, whose idea inspired me to create this one. Also to Skeletor for suggesting the black & white color combination for even sharper contrast. Raccoon& Earl Harewood for suggesting the red. And my fellow KC knights for giving truely useful and supportive comments). PS. I have taken the traditionalist's blue font on minimap off this post due to the limitation of the number of attachments that I can put into a post. You are welcomed to email me for it if you wish.
