Complete changelog from v.1 (Jul 16, 2011) to v.5 (Aug 16, 2011)

Here is what you have to do as someone mentioned before. When you put the MODS folder, create subfolders within the MODS folder with the same name as the civ5mod file name. I.e./ R.E.D. WWII Data Files (v 4). Then place the file in that folder. I believe the reason many cannot play it is the link to the R.E.D core mod file requires the R.E.D. data files pack V4. Not V2 which the link above other link sends you to download. I cannot post a URL and I'm not joining just to do so. Hoever search on google for R.E.D. WWII Data Files (v 4) and you'll find it. It does work.

Doesn't work. Tells me to activate the data files but when I go look, they are activated.

What the heck does this mean:

- find the R.E.D. WWII Edition and R.E.D. WWII Data Files lines and activate them.

When I try to start a custom game I get an error message about an missing infantry file or something? Can someone / the developers help me?
Thank you!
