Dune Wars: Revival is a new modmod of Dune Wars the total conversion mod for Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword. Duneman (Mr M from Civfanatics) has put a lot of work into refining and enhancing the gameplay of the mod in the last year. The result is a much more polished, flavourful and immersive game, so if you played the original Dune Wars or if you're a fan of Frank Herbert's Dune setting, previous Dune games or just 4X strategy in general then you should check it out!

A summary of some of the new features in Dune Wars: Revival:

New Faction! - House Richese
The focus of House Richese is production. Their unique worker can build the Richesian Mirror improvement which provides more hammers than the Solar Farm. They also specialise in Suspensors with the Suspensor Base and unique Suspensor Chaser unit. Later they can build the Sentinel Mech unit and the Suspensor No-Cruiser. The Doubling Line building allows two-for-one when building vehicles and aircraft.

I cannot start Civilization IV through desura. I have Civ IV through Steam.

Error:
Failed to launch item.

Failed to launch item Civilization IV, File is not valid
exe [c:\steam\steamapps\common\sid meier's
civilization iv beyond the
sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe]. [61.0]

Any idea what's wrong? (It has the correct file path.)

It's the steam version of the .exe so only steam can launch it.

You might be able to download a Retail .exe (Since you bought the game it doesn't matter where you download it) , but beware of viruses.

Actually, the above is the wrong path, but I entered the correct path manually. I guess it's not accepting the manual path? The correct path is:C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization IV Beyond the Sword\Beyond the Sword\Civ4BeyondSword.exe

You know what is funny about The warlords theme song :P
It is a Lebanese folks song (a love song to be precise) the song talks about a beautiful women that the singer would let mountains bow before her then he says that when she appears she blooms as April ( April is month of the Virgin Mary in Lebanon Because All flowers trees Bushes Bloom in April) so if you take it that way you would see the paradox in the Game Title and the song :D

Hey does Civ 4 not like Vista? I used to play it, and LOVED it, on my old XP computer. THen I got a new computer with Vista, reinstalled, and it crashes whenever I try to start a game! It sucks cause I really want to get back on and play this game!
