This mod based on Frank Herbert's epic Dune saga, features a struggle to control one planet - Dune, Arrakis, a barren desert wasteland which is valuable for one thing only - the spice melange. The spice has the universe addicted to it; it extends life, it allows for the Navigators of the the Spacing Guild to fold space, travel from one point in space to another without moving, it is the basis for the economy and trade of the known universe. The spice is created by Sand Worms, giant creatures that live their whole life in the sand. The mysterious Fremen worship the worms as Shai-Hulud, the Great Makers. Dune Wars is a total conversion of Civilization 4 : Beyond the Sword. Features include: + 9 playable factions + Spice and Harvesters + Massive sandworms roam the desert + Pay the guild to transport troops from your homeworld + Water, Offworld Trade, Unique Civ Abilities, Terraforming and more... Are you ready to become the sole ruler of Dune, and in turn, control the universe?

The Dune Wars 1.7 installer did not work for users with Steam or other "non-traditional" setups. It would fail to find a registry key, and fail to install...

Highly unlikely. Unfortunately, modding support for Civ V is really poor, in particular, support for modding the graphics. This is why there haven't been any total conversion mods for Civ V so far and there are unlikely to be any unless the mod support improves a lot. At the moment it is not possible at all to mod the building graphics or create custom terrains. Civ V was a big disappointment modding-wise.

I just got the mod, works great, only thing i dont like is the lack of thinking machines as playable entities. Omnius Prime and erasmus would be fantastic to play as, but I can see how it would be difficult given how powerfull they would be.. Oh well, just a suggestion for the next patch.

Find where the game files where going to be installed then manually delete them. Hope it works :)

Finden, wo die Spiel-Dateien installiert werden, wo gehen dann manuell löschen. Hoffe es funktioniert :)

There was a problem with the Steam installation path it seems - it all should be fixed now.
