The Song of the Moon.
The Song of the Moon is a comprehensive mod for Civ IV, detailing the colonisation and exploration of Earth's largest natural satellite - Luna.
Play as one of fifteen civilisations in three categories - the intrepid Space Agencies, rebellious independent colonies, or the scheming multinational corporations.
Colonise the moon with biodomes and bunkers, defend your colonies with laser infantry and prism turrets, explore the moon with scouts and rovers, and improve the land with glasshouses and boreholes!
The latest release of the Song of the Moon includes complete XML and comprehensive artwork changes, including the first of a long line of entirely new 3D models for Civ IV.

The team wishes to thank Harbaal, Falkonite and The Great Apple for their help, as well as the intrepid testers of the previous version. Thanks also to the general modding community for their help and continued interest and support.
We hope you enjoy playing - but please bear in mind that this mod is still in its Alpha version, and while the crippling bugs have all been eradicated, some minor glitches and errors may remain. Also, we are aware that individual computers may experience errors that are not apparent on other machines. While we have tried to give this a long and gruelling playtesting period, we can't guarantee that this will work 100% on 100% of computers. Simply download the *.rar and extract it into your root mods folder. Good luck!
This is an interim release to support the new, 1.61 patch. If you encounter
any issues with this mod, please post details of your experiences on the Song
of the Moon thread in the Completed Modpacks forum (from where you downloaded
this module in the first place presumably) at www.civfanatics.com..
