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...

This is the newest patch for Dune Wars. It was released a while back (January 8th 2010) to Civfanatics, but I am only just getting around to uploading...

So let me get this straight:

When you say Total Conversion do you mean "Mod" where you extract this into your BTS Mods folder or "Completely-transforms-your-vanilla-BTS and would require a reinstall to change it back?

Total conversion just means a mod where pretty much everything is changed. It just sits in your BTS Mods directory, and doesn't touch the original game files. We actually have an installer so you don't need to do anything by hand.

This is probably one of the best and most recent Dune games (under a different game) ever played in the Dune series.

Thanks CommanderJC. We are currently working on what will be quite a major update which will mostly consist of revising the tech tree to make the game progress in a more interesting and thematic way. So watch this space!

No Ive installed it in the program files, no steam direct to drive. I get the patch, go threw all the minor stuff then press install and then it just exits me out of the install window, nothin after that. Are there previous patches that I have to install before 3.19?

No, I think 3.19 includes all previous BTS patches. I'm running out of suggestions... perhaps you could ask a question on Civfanatics - that is the main Civ4 forum.

Have you installed to a non-standard location not within Program Files? Do you have a Steam/Direct2Drive install? Steam/Direct2Drive installs require a specific version of the patch.
