This is a Realism Mod version 0.6.
Civilization's 4 - Realism Mod
To make an expanded and more realistic modification to civ4, allowing for longer games,
longer wars, and more intense gameplay with a bit higher difficulty and learning curve to
properly manage and compete in the game. Emulate issues of a large empire, supply lines,
and strategic needs of different units and types.

This version has had all other gamespeeds removed now that it is a Mod. Im not sure how that effects saved games though, sorry guys :( We'll find out! Yay Testing!
If you had a previous version of this mod:
Either follow the oldschol installation instructions, or, if you wish to install as a mod, then you must first delete *all* realism modifications in teh customAssets folder. This can be as simple as deleting the 'Xml' folder inside of CustomAssets, unless you have other mods installed as well.
Unzip the folder to your 'Mods' folder within your game directory. As in, extract the
zip file to C:Program FilesSid Meier's Civilization 4Mods
After you have done this, start the game. At the main menu go to Advanced -> Load a Mod. In this menu, Select 'Realism'. The game will require a restart, once this is complete, start a new game and your off!
If you want the mod to load by default, you need to modify your Civ4Config. This is located
in your My DocumentsMy GamesSid Meier's Civilization 4CivilizationIV.ini
You must change this:
Mod = 0
Mod = ModsRealism
OldSchool Installation (If you want to keep saved games I guess?):
Copy everything inside the 'Assets' folder into the CustomAssets folder
(My DocumentsMy GamesSid Meier's Civilization 4CustomAssets)
Read the changelog to see the changes I've made so far.
If you want to help me out with this or think its interesting at least, hit me up at
firstname.lastname@example.org, Id really like to get a real project going with a few other people.
P.S. Please people! Post any ideas or crticisms you have, I'd love to hear them all. No matter how small they are.
