    They all can work (well the ones with .biq files do and many .bix files as well, stick with the .biq files first maybe...). There is a separate link on troubleshooting and sometimes making the ModPacks and Senarios work on a Mac - but I've had 20-30 running without a hitch...

    Try these for starters (a) really brilliant (b) the way Civ 3 should be
    ...a) Age of Imperialism 1895-1924 (the effort and total fun of this is awesome),
    ...b) Worldwide 1

    lots and lots to choose from, like Warhammer 2.5 - seriuosly you have gotta grab this one as well...

    Some LoTR as well.. too much, only so many hours I can stay awake to play....

    After the total disappointment of Civ5, i'm really enjoying all Civ3 has to offer...

    I could be here all day...

    also, try these links,

    15 recommendations with links are not enough?

    I was referring to the ones first mentioned as the absolute must tries; I did have a look at the ones with the links posted but I prefer Ancients if I can get them. Not that I want to be p[icky - much!

    At the top of the forum page there is a Google custom search box. Copy and paste the mod name into that and click the green arrow to get a list of possible locations.

    Thank Alan, I'll give it a try.

    Using all the suggestions in the pages I have successfully downloaded, installed and got RFRE working correctly - a very happy man here.

    One question - why do we treat volcanos so badly. Yes, they may explode and send lava out covering everything, yet people have been living on their slopes for millenium. There must be a reason and hence, in the game, a benefit for founding a city beside one.

    Thanks - Pablo the Scot

    Yes, there ought to be a food and/or wealth bonus for having one in your city perimeter, just as there is a benefit for flood plains to offset the disease risk.
