The BUG Project
BTS Unaltered Gameplay, or BUG, is a modification code for Civilization IV: BTS. CIV is a very easy game to modify, but not all modifications are compatible with each other. In an effort to combines these many different Mods from the Civ community, into one concise program, the BUG Project was born.
BUG combines mods that do not change the basic game play of CIV, while adding flavor and ease of use. Some aspects that we feel are within this criteria are Advisor Screens, City View Screen, the Main View Screen, the Civopedia, as well as the way units may look but not the way they play. Also, any addition or changes made, will not provide any information that cannot be figured out within the game itself.
BAT is an add-on to the BUG Mod, that adds flavor to and diversity to the game. It contains the latest version of BUG, so no additional installation is required by the end user.
We feel these Mods are safe for use in any Succession Games, and have ensured any bugs which would conflict with users who are not playing with the BUG Mod are elimiated. If you find any changes within the code that modify games play, please post a message to us here, or on the Project Development link listed below, and we will make it of the utmost important to fix the problem. Also, if you find something that causes conflicts within Succession Games, please let us know as well.
If you would like to have your Mod added, please visit the Project Development page on SourceForge.

If you'd like to keep updated with the latest changes to the Mods, then use our SVN server. To do this, follow these directions:
- Download the latest version of TortoiseSVN from here: Download TortoiseSVN Here
- After installation, reboot system.
- Create Directory to place the Mod. I'd suggest a directoy called "The BUG Project".
- Explorer the directory you just created, and right click on it. Go to the Option that says "SVN Checkout."
- Use one of the SVN URL's listed below, when prompted. Right click on the URL and select "Copy Link Location," and copy into Tortoise.
- Once the directory has been downloaded, you can keep up to date by using SVN Update on the directory again.
- To install you just have to use the Export command from within the TortoiseSVN context menu from inside Explorer.
- To get the latest revision, right click on directory, and pick "SVN Update."
