Great find, it work like a charm, even if it lacks some density. Merci mon pote!
Is there a comprehensive list of these mods so I don't have to go struggling through 20 pages of this thread?
And can I run two mods at the same time (i.e. Blue Marble and HOF?)
thanks, new to the whole modding thing!
I'm not aware of any consolidated list. There are only 6 pages in this thread, not 20, unless you have a very low posts-per-page setting. The post count is 107, and there are not many Mac-compatible mods among them.
Blue Marble and HoF Mod work together fine. They are permanently installed on my system, with the HoF Mod set as a default mod in the ,ini file. Blue Marble is a graphics-only mod and you put it in your ~/Documents/Civilization IV/CustomAssets/ folder. The HoF Mod goes in your /Civilization IV/Mods/ folder.
Thanks Alan. the links I found to the Mac blue marble were dead. I downloaded the PC version. It unzips as and .exe Is i usable?
I need to get to the ini file to make that work. Thanks!
A .exe file is normally only usable on a Mac if you have a Parallels, VMWare or Bootcamp Windows environment.
The first post in the current thread links to this thread where I gave links to Mac-compatible downloads for hi and lo res versions of Blue Marble. The links are still valid as far as I can tell.
You set up a default Md to load every time you launch Civ4 by editing the CivilizationIV.ini file. Details are in the sticky HoF Mod thread.
[PS] You were the fourth poster in my Blue Marble thread linked above. You said you'd "give it a try" on July 11 2006.
Ha ha. That's hilarious. Must have been my son or something. Or my crazy twin brother.
I did download it at the time... stopped playing for a year or so. And I just started playing again. You know how that goes.
Thanks for the help.
Not really. I didn't really start playing Civ4, gave up, and haven't picked it up again.
I have gotten the WW2 European theatre mod to work on my new iMac.
I am very unused to modern-naval warfare, so my first attempt had unguarded transports getting destroyed by German subs. Good luck.
I used to play Civ 4 on my MacBook with the Civ Gold mod that has been talked about previously in this thread. Now I've gotten a new iMac and installed the Warlords expansion pack and I was wondering which version of the Civ Gold mod I should download for Warlords (latest patch for Mac installed) and what I would need to do to it in order to get the mod to work on my Mac.
Does anyone have any clarification on this, because after looking around the Civ Gold threads, I was baffled as to which one would be the correct one to use, and whether I needed to perform any alterations to get it to function on my iMac.
Thanks for the help.
The WW1 mod doesn't work for me, but then again I'm running warlords...
The WW2 mod is brilliant. Thanks.
It's quite the opposite for me, I've played WW1 thouroughly with many nations, but the WW2 mod is just not stable, it crashes when I decide to build the soviet heavy tank(kv...) And sometimes, startinga game, cities have buildings giving MAJOR unrest - in fact, with those screwed up startups, every building gives negative happiness...
Anyway, Civ Gold works fine if you use this to unzip it. Apart from a weird text error (Leaders have names like: TXT_KEY_LEADER_BOUDICA. Same goes for Civs and units.) that's more annoying than crippling. I'm trying to find a fix now.
Hey, just to let you guys know, I'm the developer for that WW2 european theatre mod. The unhappiness problem can be fixed by staring a game, exiting back to the menu and starting a new game. Save files don't have this problem assuming you did that process at the beginning. Also I've uploaded a new version (2.1) to the database, and it fixes the problem with water tiles and some buildings.
I'll look into that KV phenomenon, most likely an art file typo.
yep, it was an art file thing. Problem solved, version 2.2 is now online. see my sig.
Cheers! I'm trying it at this very moment.
Does the Fall From Heaven mod work with Mac?
No, it uses a custom .dll, which mac computers can't read
Does anyone use this Mod with the 2.13 version of Warlords? Is it playable?
Just tried it today, and no. It gives you red circles instead of units.
I just started playing the WW2.2 mod and right at the start of the game when I discover a religion, the game crashes. Any fixes for that?
Thanks a lot
