Dune Wars (Civ IV Mod) Version 1.9: Now With Bigger Sandworms!

Civilization V may now be out for both Mac and PC, but Civ IV remains a beloved classic, so no doubt it will be flogged by modders Half-Life 2 style until the last remaining electron has been deleted. Which is fine by me since it means more goodies like Dune Wars, an ongoing Civ IV mod based on Frank Herbert’s ridiculously convoluted, awesome-in-theory-boring-in-reality series of sci fi novels about space Bedouin drug user worm people.

Dune wars plays like a standard Civ IV game -you found your city and expand across the vast planet building your empire. The catch is that the planet is a vast desert, and the cities and outposts you found are devoted to collecting moisture and spice. Also, random events include giant sandworms like the one above who roam the desert and tear up all your shizz. Luckily, no Sting and no David Lynch. And it just got a big update with the release of version 1.9. 1.9 includes new units, new building, improved effects and general tweaks and improvements to make it more stable and fun.

If you’re looking for something fun to do over thanksgiving, you might consider grabbing a copy for yourself. And speaking of thanksgiving: I’m thankful that David Lynch has nothing to do with this.

some of us don’t have any problems understanding lynch’s vision, in fact enjoy it. that being said, i’d like to point out that most people who can’t are on the lower side of the IQ scale, so when writing a review on material based upon his vision you really shouldn’t take every opportunity to bad mouth him because it just makes you look…….. well really stupid.
