    Hi -

    I've extracted the mods to the mods folder and the assets to the assets folder, but the only scenario I've been granted access to is the Eugenics War. I can't play any of the Final Frontier based scenarios.

    Being computer illiterate, I would much appreciate if somebody could walk me through what I should be looking for having done wrong, or how to do it right from the beginning.

    Thanks much

    - bdrr

    Are you sure you have the correct mods and assets folders? You need the ones where BtS is installed (NOT the My Games folder); typically this is C:\Program Files\Firaxis Games\Sid Meier's Civilization IV\Beyond the Sword

    Turns out I got that part right (surprising)

    What I didn't understand is that the mod had to be manually loaded under the advanced tab on the main menu.

    Yep I've got exactly the same issue. Installed the mods at C:\Program Files\2K Games\Firxais games\Sid Meier's Civilization IV\Beyond the Sword\Mods\

    when the installer runs and asks which folder to install star trek on, which folder does should it go?

    I installed other mods that said something like, "this mod will install in the mods folder of the location below..." and I just installed them on the folder marked "Beyond the Sword" and it automatically put it there.

    So for star trek, does it work like that. When I tried it, it actually added a string at the end like, "\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Beyond the Sword\Mods\Star Trek 4.00" and it ruined the installation. So how does this installation perform its file paths?

    Just set it to be the directory BtS is installed in (the one it gives you for the default). Or just wait 15 minutes for the new full installer to be uploaded; I removed that screen since it auto-detects it already and it's proven too confusing.
