    I thought you folks would might be interested in this. We challenged one of our artists (Brian Busatti) to dig into the SDK tools and create an example environment skin using only the tools and off the shelf modelling software (no internal dev tools) to help the tools team continue to iterate and improve the SDK. He went full nostalgia...

    If you're looking for a solid example for a total environment conversion, this is the one. I was blown away the first time he showed it to me.

    Warning, it's a big boy (2.4 GB).

    Unlike others I don't mind how the Civ VI environment graphics look, but this is an excellent throwback for some variety and for those who have been lamenting the lack of more realistic visuals.

    Amazing work but it's breaking unless the time of day is stationary.

    I thought I'd grown accustomed to the civ6 cartoony 'look', but I prefer the more natural civ 5 look so much more. Well done, Brian!

    I really like that the forests actually have some tree density in these mod pictures. Gonna download it. Thanks.

    I feel like this belongs in Modding Tutorials & Reference.

    Graphics are not my domain, can we use the mod alone as an example on how to create another of the same scope, or would we need the modbuddy project for that purpose ?

    Fair point. Without the Modbuddy Project it's not really an example people can fully follow. I'm planning to release the Fungal Biome Modbuddy project when I get around to it.
