    Hey Folks,

    since all world maps around are a bit to large for my computer and I'm having performance trouble playing them, I did a smaller world map, that fits my hardware! :)
    I took the large world map from Dales Map Set and adjusted it a lot. Ressources are fix and I reworked entire europe! What we have now is a, I would say, standard sized world map with true starting locations and ressources!

    Installation
    Unzip the file VadusWorldGK.zip to C:\Users\{Username}\Documents\My Games\Sid Meier's Civilization 5\Maps

    Run Civ5 --> Mods --> Single Player --> Set up Game --> MapType --> Scroll Down until "Vadus World" --> Check "Load Scenario", choose a civ, difficulty and go !!

    Credits
    Thanks Dale for TSL World Maps from Day 1

    Update
    2012-07-16: Adjusted to Gods&Kings
    Europe is again a little bit bigger. There are 2 versions of this map:
    1. Vadus World GK - 22 Civs & 13 City States
    2. Vadus World GK European Space - 22 Civs & 7 City States ( none in Europe, so each european civ should be able to found another city at european ground )

    NEW VERSION
    2015-10-30: Adjusted to Brave new World
    3. Dawn of Civilization - 18 Civs & 12 City States

    God bless you...

    If we have a Civ pack adding more civs is it possible to add Spain and Inca?

    Anyways, thanks so much for this!

    Blessings!

    no, you have to load the scenario, which is possible in mod-mode only. And you can play mods only in singleplayer as far as I know
