    i never liked civ5 but i going to mod and see what can be done, my plan at first is simple, expand the content new buildings, units, tech, civilization.
    i will also change the econimc aspects of the game so that way EVERYthing dosnt cost atleast one gold. roads should be free, most buildings shouldnt cost money. i also believe every building should have a number of pros and cons that make picking what buildings to build in which cities very important part of the game.

    unit combat should be closer to rock paper sissors like the old game, transport units, stack combat(i figure at first ill limit 3 units per tile and see how that works then increase it in by 2 until it feels correct)

    units and building should be cheaper,(but since there is so many buildings you couldnt possible have all of them) unit will be much cheaper to just have around.

    i want every era to last about 150-200 turns(except for anciant) everything seams to speed by.

    that is what i want to accomplish at first with my mod:goodjob::king:

    Roads should not be free. You should really just go back to playing Civ4, since you're obviously stubbornly stuck in the past and there doesn't seem to be a single thing you like about Civ5.

    There is no reason to discurage someone modding civ5 to be more like civ 4, there are things that civ 4 did better than civ 5 and vice versa, I wouldnt agrue if some things were a little closer to the way they were in civ 4.

    The whole point of modding is to make the game the way you want to play it, just because you dont think something should be some way, doesnt mean others wont. I for instance have already changed my game so that roads dont require maintenance and so that railroads only take 1.

    I mean, you knew all the changes that were going to be in the game before you bought it. Did you read a single review of the game? Almost all of the Civ 5 features you complain about were clearly explained in reviews of the game I read before I bought it. Maybe you should have taken five minutes to read these reviews, think about whether you would enjoy the many changes to the game, and then decided whether you wanted to buy the it. It's very annoying how you come on these forums and complain about every single feature of Civ 5. It is just so stupid to try to mod Civ 5 with the aim of making it into Civ 4, all because you are bitter about spending $50 on a game you should have known you wouldn't like.

    Everything Archaic has to say is negative. When someone comes on these forums about modding and every post they say is something along the lines of 'civ5 is the wurst game ever', then I think I have the right to discourage them from posting here.

    i have an oppion on your "right to say i cant post here because i said the game is bad" but it be rude to tell you so i wont. I will mod this game to make it funner for me atleast, and post it for download here. oh and i did read the reviews, the reviews were not very true, the 1upt didnt work as well as the said in any review, not one review except for the recent ones metion the Diplomacy or cobmat AI being messed up, or how unbalanced the game was. i simply going to add the stuff i think the game should have already had, civic, 5 or 7upt rework the economy so that way its not impossible to do anything, and later when they let us mod the AI i am going to fix them up abit.

    Seriously? You didn't realize that you wouldn't like 1upt? You shouldn't have just been blindly relying on the opinions of others. You should have thought about this change for yourself. I mean, can you even come up with a single thing you like better about Civ 5? If not, then you've got a long road cut out for you, and you probably should have realized from the reviews that you wouldn't like the game.

    well when every review game the game a 4/5 or 9.5/10 i thought other things would be good, and at first i didnt think 1upt would be that bad, but the ai still spams units and rather than sending stack of doom they send carpets of doom now.
