Enormous Modding Guide For Civilization V Released

The Civilization series has always been friendly to modders, so it’s no surprise that Civilization V comes absolutely loaded with tools. But if you’re inexperienced with modding (or simply new to the Civilization series), and aren’t sure where to begin, you’re in luck: As announced on Civ Fanatics, Kael, creator of the amazing Fall From Heaven series of Civ IV mods, has done the world a huge favor with the first comprehensive guide to modding Civ V.

The Modder’s Guide To Civilization V is a dense but easy to follow instruction manual that crams a shocking amount of information into your head without turning you all fuzzy. Readers are taken step-by-step from the basics of modding itself, to real coding; there’s also a ton of tips for creating great mods, with an emphasis on fun and playable. Best of all? It’s available for free, right now, as a PDF.

Kael also started a discussion thread for modding the game, and offers some good advice:

“The temptation is to keep our cool little tricks to ourselves, so that our mods are more unique, this is a mistake. The mods we can make alone are time consuming and limited. The mods we can create together are incredible.”

We’ll be poring over this ourselves, and bringing what we learn to you. In the meantime, you’d best get started – check here to see if your computer can handle it. Now if you’ll excuse us, we got a lot of homework to get through.
