    @ASCII Guy, @Teholb, @Moi Magnus - Thank You all for your comments!

    You are indeed correct! I installed my Steam app folder under path C:\_GAMES\Steam, but the UI_bc1 folder was installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam - and it was the only item there O_o

    Not sure how the logic works here, but either way - thanks y'all! :thanx: :beer:

    Glad you made it work!

    This is, sadly, a limitation of the free installer software. It automatically places EUI into the standard location. If the path does not exist, it creates the default folder structure and puts EUI there.

    I can't believe I never noticed this. I have my steam folder at C:\Steam as an old habit from the dark days of slow HDDs. I was told that having games and other load-intensive things at the highest level was best for performance.

    Thankyou!!

    VoxPopuli crashes a couple of seconds every time after I load a game, i've no problem playing a normal game. The version I have is from the 17th of July of this year.

    I don't use every mod in the list. I'm on Windows 10 and i've 8GB of RAM.

    You need the compatibility files if you're using the enhanced user interface.

    I enabled the "Community Balance Overhaul- Compatability files (EUI) (V 1)" but Civ V still crashed. This time it crashed while the map was still loading, I heard distorted audio when it started to load and when the game finally crashed I hear the distorted audio just before it happened.

    I am confused about what you meany: you do NOT or you DO use the mods in the list? Some of them are essential components of Vox Populi while others are not related to Vox Populi in any way and I think the Prehistoric Era is not even compatible.

    Just install Vox Populi from the latest autoinstaller, activate ALL its components and try WITHOUT the extra mods first. Then you can start adding extra mods to find out which one is causing the problems.

    You cannot be surprised that your game is crashing if you deactivate some VP parts and add unrelated extra mods on top of it.

    Best if you unsubscribe from all mods you might have on steam and remove your mods folder in Documents\my games\civ5.
    Then run the installer and enable all components from 1 to 6a at least.

    The way VP is supposed to be installed is that you first unsubscribe and delete all mods (including ones that may be part of VP) and then use the installer and choose the appropriate version there (typically full VP with EUI). Then check if that works to make sure that nothing else is messed up with your install and then you can start adding other, non-VP mods to test if they're compatible.

    What do you mean by 1 to 6a?

    Just delete your MODS folder in C:\Users\your_username\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\

    OK I did that and I enabled all the components from 1 to 6a. I installed the 25th of November beta and everything went smooth, I was able to start the game and play a couple of turns and I went to the main menu and I was able to load the game again.

    I noticed recently that the AI don't display Great Works anymore to swap, making theming of wonders like the Louvre or Oxford University impossible to theme. I don't know if it is WAD or if I should report it on GitHub. Am I the only one who noticed that?

    Apparently they are now simply a lot more conscious of what kind of Great Works they themselves actually need, thus requiring you to display some of your own Great Works (eventually someone will swap with you but this is quite rare). But the algorithm could probably still use some tuning as situations where the AI needs to swap one of its own GW for a foreign one should be ocuring more often than the AI seems to think.

    What causes the city-state quests to change/disappear (beside completing them)?

    Change: entering a new Era will increase the rewards (usually); pledging to protect will increase the Influence gain of the reward; certain Statecraft policies can increase rewards.
    Disappear: completing the quest; declaring war on the CS; tributing the CS; some quests have a time limit on them where they disappear even if no one completes them; failing in your protective pledge I think also makes them disappear, but I'm not 100% sure about that (if true it probably applies to both not keeping your military up to snuff and budging when a major civ challenges you by bullying your protected CS).
