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...

What patch is this for? I crash everytime I try to load the mod. :/

I'm installing the patch to see if anything changes..but it'd be nice to know what version this mod is for.


No dice, the patch didn't do anything. It doesn't even run, I choose to load the mod, I go to desktop and a few seconds later I get the "Civ IV has stopped working and needs to close" error. >_<

You need Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword - Patch 3.19.

There is more installation information if you follow the Official Page link on the right hand side to our civfanatics subforum.

Was Civ4 totally converted? I mean, you've done all? :-) B/c this mod can be a reason to buy CivIV, I possess only CTP2. ;-)

Well Civ IV is worth the investment purely for the range of great mods available for it.

When you say 'done all' - work on the mod is ongoing and it is likely to be evolving for some time yet. The mod is already fun to play, but we have a lot more planned for it. At the moment, we are implementing the religious aspect which will add a lot. Civ 4 mods tend to evolve over time and feedback from players is a vital part of that process. :)

Is there a download? No. So it's not released.

This mod looks sexy, I'm watching.

As Deliverator said, it is released... I looked up the release date then, but didn't know for sure if it is released. :-)

Yes, Dune Wars is very much released - we are up to version 1.5.4.
I can't post links yet as I'm new, but if you go to www dot civfanatics dot com and look in the downloads section under Civ4 - Modpacks you should find us.

Oh. :-) Have you uploaded the file here, on :-) The authorisation process may take a bit, but probably you'll get here a decent deal of attention.

There are so few mods about Dune. So good to hear that there's a finished mod for Civ4.
