    I am trying to use some graphic mods, but I am not able to locate the DDS files to replace them. When I open the Assets folder, I then open the Art folder, and there are only two folders there: Interface and Movies. The game is working fine, so it is not like the files are not on my computer.

    Any ideas?

    1) Mods shouldn't require you to replace your original files. But if you insist on doing it that way, be SURE to back up the originals.

    2) The DDS files do not show up on standard installation. You need the .FPK unpacking utility posted by firaxis on the Civ4 website in response tot he original ATI Renderer Error bug. Search for the utility in the tech support areas of that website and follow the directions (doesn't matter that you're not affected by the bug, following the fix won't break anything, but it will make the DDS files, and others, show up)

    Thanks for the quick response. :thumbsup: I would never have thought of that as a solution, so I am glad I asked here.

    I am actually trying to change the default graphics, so replacing the original files is necessary.
