I recently downloaded the Great options Mod. Trying to get it to work and having difficulties. I edited the civ4.ini file's mod line. Try to load it and it says a bunch of files are missing. Do I have to manually replace all the assests? I have ben unable to get any mods to work as of yet. Running ver1.52. Help anyone what am I missing in my process? I tried the mod chooser and it couldn't get any mods to load for me. I love the game and want to try mods now, but alas I can't figure them out.

I guess you copied the mod-files to the wrong folder, here are the install-instructions:

1) Unzip this into the "civ4_install_folder\Mods\" folder. 2) Open the CivilizationIV.ini configuration file 3) Change the Mod line to read: Mod = Mods\Great Options 4) Load the game. 5) Then play as normal.

Otherwise you might want to search this forum:http://forums.civfanatics.com/forumdisplay.php?f=171 Maybe the person who made this mod has a thread about it there.

That's exactly what I did, and it still don't work, gives me a debug error and closes civ 4. every mod i have tried i copied to that folder and none of them loaded properly, and yes i read install instructions. The only MOD i was able to get working was the localised starting tech mod, but he screwed up and made it so when it's used there is no player interface at all (the part on the bottom of screen with unit commands)

Ok, look here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=4149594 It's the thread where the mod you try to install was announced. I guess if you register over there and ask them they'll know how to solve it. Or maybe somebody asked already (didn't read all 5 pages of that thread).

Maybe the solution involves reinstalling the game and all patches.
