    If you look in the main Civ4 directory you'll find a shortcut to a Custom Mod directory: _Civ4CustomMods

    This is actually a link to the following path:

    C:\Documents and Settings\<your user>\My Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 4\Mods

    You have to unzip the mod there.

    Now run the game, choose ADVANCED, then LOAD A MOD. Select the Mod you want to load from the list on your left and click OK.

    The game will restart in order to load the new Mod.
    That's it!

    Have fun

    Thanks Throttle, I know just what path that is your talking about and how you get to the mods folder, but I can't figure out how to unzip the MOD there. :blush:
    EDIT: ok I figured it out now

    for some reason (can't remember what it was, i think it was multiplayer) you have to put them in "C:/program files/blabla/Sid Meiers Civilization 4/Mods/modname" (put it in the main game directory)
