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?

Do you have Civ 4 Beyond the Sword installed? You'll also need to install Beyond the Sword patch 3.19.

Also, what platform and operating system are you using?

Thanks for the positive review! Bear in mind that Fall from Heaven 2 has been over 3 years in the making, whereas Dune Wars only started up in Spring this year. We still have a long way to go, but it's great that people are enjoying the mod in its current form.

That's good news. Yes, I've noticed that the installer shortcuts aren't working. We'll try and fix in a future release.
