    Its so neat to go walking in between buildings in the towns. Looking at the map from different angles makes it feel like a really detailed board game. When I first tried it it was more fun than actually playing the game. Thanks for letting us know.

    go into the ini and try control-f, and then type in "flying" or something like that, that way you should be able to get to it with out trouble.

    In a virtual Civ 4 Environment.
    actually there might be. Although I haven't looked into it yet as I just came across this topic, I do believe the Theme files or possibly python determines the sky color. If it is the theme files then it wouldn't be possible to add to a mod and only change it for the main game. Of course it would effect mods as well but I mean that you won't be able to change it for mods exclusively. ;)

    Oh, i love the idea of changing the sky. I did some text searching through the game files for the term "sky". These are the results. I don't have a .nif editor or any model editing experience, so i figured i'd better leave the experimentation up to other people. Also, these results are from Civ4 1.52, but i suspect the sky definition, if there is one, didn't change much since then.
