  1. Hey guys, been a while since the last project update again as I've been continuing work on my huge Civ2 search & rescue preservation project (which is why Civ2 mods dominate below) which is in its final stretch now as soon I’ll be moving onto to Test of Time, Civ3 & newer Civ games. I also took time away to finally start releasing my video series that all this preservation work feeds into which anyone interested can see the first episode on Playing Civ1 in HD with mods & Scenarios here. While Civ2 dominates this update below don’t worry guys, newer Civ games haven’t totally been neglected thanks to people replying to my threads with great discoveries and I’ve found a few on my own too! I swore I wouldn't add anymore categories to the search list but I have bowed to popular demand haha as many people asked me to add the Warhammer Franchise (Fantasy & 40K Scifi) and while I've sadly never played any of their games I can't help but notice there's some really really good Warhammer scenarios out there for various Civ games so I've added them to the list! This will likely annoy diehard fans of each respective franchise (I've seen some of the "they stole this off us" arguments lol) but I've combined the new Warhammer category with the existing Warcraft & Starcraft section to save space, sorry lol. Oh and I've also added a new Missing scenarios & mods section to the bottom of the original thread post to better display the projects I've been unable to rescue so far. If you have one of them, please let me know! List updates... Civ2: Star Trek - Added JohnValdez's Star Trek Generations (5 scenarios) modpack to the list, & have uploaded its missing file to CFC.

  5. It's the 30th anniversary of Sid Meier's Civilization 1 this month so I thought I'd finally release my Attila's Conquest 1 – Play As Barbarians Scenario for both CivDOS & CivWin. This scenario is the first in a series where I attempt to play as the 8th Barbarian slot in each Civ game via hacks, cheats & editor tools and release a scenario for others to play as them too. Can you also overcome all the Barbarian disadvantages to defeat the advancing regular 7 Civs in this special 8 Civ survival scenario?

About: When I was a young boy playing Civilization 1 in the mid 1990s I remember coming across a hex editing guide for Civ1 save games and noticed that you could change the player controlled Civ to even the 8th Barbarian faction in slot 0. I tried it out and was amazed to see that it actually worked! There I was playing the red faction as ruler Attila the Hun! I had a fun game mucking around however due to the severe limitations on the Barbarians I didn't get very far and was quickly defeated. Fast forward nearly 25 years and I decided it would be fun to try again and really see if I could find ways to actually win a game as the Barbarians and see what would happen when you kill all the other Civs. I created a thread at the CivFanatics forums to discuss strategies and if it was also possible to take control of the Barbs in the Windows version of Civ1 here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/playing-as-barbarians-in-civilization-1.632894/ I had recently discovered Honzas ‘DOS Tileset for CivWin' mod and made my own ‘CivWin Soundtrack Overhaul Mod' to convert Civilization 1 for Windows into a more DOS like experience. So I really wanted to play my Barbarian game in that instead of DOS however I didn't have much luck in starting a Barb game in CivWin so I gave up and played my game in CivDOS. After I finished my game I then discovered how to convert CivDOS save games to CivWin allowing me to now release my Barbarian game for both formats! Honzas DOS Tileset for Civilization I for Windows mod: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/dos-tileset-for-civwin.8830/ Blake's Civilization 1 For Windows Complete Soundtrack Overhaul Mod: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/civilization-1-for-windows-complete-soundtrack-overhaul-mod.633237/ Fortunately these days there are some great map editors and Civ editor programs that allow you to design your own scenario and even change Barbarian cities to have or build any building or unit you want! Using these I was able to create a fun Barbarian scenario that actually gives you a fighting chance and then was able to go on and WIN the game trigger a full victory end sequence with no crashes!

I'm also the creator of the popular Star Trek TNG GZDoom and Quest For Glory IV 3D Hexen GZDoom mods. ================================================================================== 2. Installation Instructions: To install just simply extract all the files out of the 7zip archive file into either your CivWin or your CivDOS install folder. If you don't have 7zip installed, you should as it's better than all the others. https://www.7-zip.org/ CivDOS: If you're using CivDOS then backup all of your save game files in your CivDOS install folder as this scenario will override anything in the first 2 save slots. Start CivDOS and load the Attila save game in slot 0. Use the Rome save game in slot 1 in JCivED if you wish to make any map changes and then switch the player back to Barbs (loading the Barb slot 0 save will crash JCivED). Once playing you can use CivED1.5 to make any city building changes. CivWin: Start CivWin and load the S_Barbarian.sav save game file to start the game. Use the CivCracker editor to make any map or city building changes. ================================================================================== 3. Known Issues & Strategies: The bad news: No tax, no science, cannot change build queue (will also crash civwin), many units will auto pillage squares, AI players last city units are invulnerable, and finally the AI capitals have HUGE defence bonuses against barbs. The good news: You get lots of randomly spawning reinforcements, max luxuries however there is no rioting in barb cities, barb cities will build whatever the captured city was last building so you can manipulate if not using an editor, settlers will work the land and create cities, you can destroy civs by taking their capital after they make another city and then using a dip to bribe the city, My tricks: Set your cities to build what you'll need before sacrificing to barbs (if you try naturally), you can use an editor to place a barb city and give buildings, build forts on mountains and hills with your starting civ or editor (barbs can't get construction), Barbs can't get bridge building so if there's a pesky river in the way of your army train, build a city there and you'll have a nice bridge to link your roads to. AI last city units are invulnerable. To kill a city you need to wait for it to have 2 cities, then attack the capital (still gets a huge defence bonus against barbs) until its empty, then you have 2 choices: 1 take the capital and use a barb leader (diplomat) to buy the other city 2 attack the second city at the same time with another attack force and then once both cities are empty you can march in without worrying about any invulnerable units. Settlers will pillage all irrigation and mines. So if you really need them then get the settler to do the work but then disband it after the job as the pillaging only happens when you try to move the settler off the square. Because you are effectively an 8th civ you are now fighting 7 opponents instead of the usual 6. Because you have to rush before anyone gets gunpowder.. you'll be doing most of your killing in BC which means anyone you kill or is killed by anyone else will return once as a new civ in a empty spot on the map. So technically you're actually fighting 14 opponents!
  6. It's the 30th anniversary of Sid Meier's Civilization 1 this month so I thought I'd finally go public with the final full release of my Civilization 1 For Windows - Soundtrack Overhaul Mod that replaces all the old CivWin short low quality WAV music files with full length high quality Roland MT-32 recordings. Full details below… ====================================================================== Civilization 1 For Windows - Complete Soundtrack Overhaul Mod ====================================================================== Author: Blake Version: 1.0 09/06/2018 ModDB Page: https://www.moddb.com/mods/civwin-complete-soundtrack-overhaul-mod Civ Website: http://blakessanctum.x10.mx/Games/CivColSeries/ (If link doesn’t work Google Blake's Sanctum) Civ News & Updates: https://blakessanctum.wordpress.com/tag/civilization/ Demonstration Video: youtu.be/eVfpkzb_C3g?list=PLZqnaGtTZxFbq3F5R6lqzyVvYzg9tRBPY ====================================================================== Contents: 1. About 2. Installation Instructions 3. Known Issues 4. Version History 5. Credits 6. DOWNLOAD ====================================================================== 1. About: As someone who grew up playing the Dos version of Civilization I was frustrated when I tried the windows version and found that all the music tracks had been converted from midi to low quality 10-30sec WAV files. Some of Civ1’s music tracks went for minutes so a lot was lost, especially considering that the Civ1 intro goes for 3 minutes meaning you sat there in silence for 2.5 mins! There wasn’t much we could do about this in the 1990s as space was premium however these days a few big WAV files isn’t going to do any damage! So I decided to test replacing the game’s music files with high quality full length versions of the soundtrack and was pleased to discover that the game allowed them and on most occasions didn’t ‘chop end’ playing the music. I hunted across the internet and managed to discover on youtube a very special high quality genuine Roland MT-32 recording of all the Dos version tracks uploaded by BarbarianBros. He very kindly gave me his original uncompressed WAV files to use for this mod. You can find his uploaded copy HERE. I had the lower the quality a bit for the files to be compatible with the game (see known issues) however working from an uncompressed source instead of a youtube compressed file has produced a much better final product which I hope you all enjoy. Most people couldn’t afford a Roland MT-32 back in the day so this soundtrack mod for CivWin will give even experienced Dos Civ players a much upgraded music experience should they wish to jump ship! Finally if you’re someone like me who also prefers the graphics & colours of the Dos version but wants to play in the higher resolutions of CivWin then I recommend you try out Honzas ‘DOS Tileset for Civilization I for Windows’ mod which combined with my mod converts CivWin into the ultimate classic Civ 1 experience. I’ve been playing Civ 1 in 1080p HD on my 46 inch screen with both these mods and having a blast!

I'm also the creator of the popular Star Trek TNG GZDoom and Quest For Glory IV 3D Hexen GZDoom mods. ====================================================================== 2. Installation Instructions: Just to be safe I recommend you backup all of your WAV files in your CivWin install folder just in case you don’t like the mod or it causes an unforeseen bug I haven’t already listed below. To install just simply extract all the WAV files out of the 7zip archive file into your CivWin install folder overriding all of the old music WAV files in there. If you don’t have 7zip installed, you should as it’s better than all the others. https://www.7-zip.org/ ====================================================================== 3. Known Issues: 24,000Hz 16bit Mono WAV format was the highest the game would accept during my testing. If anyone knows of a way to trick the game into using higher quality files (eg 44,000Hz stereo) let me know! Unlike the DOS version CivWin uses only 1 track for both the title sequence and the evolution intro. Forcing me to combine both songs into one track that fits the 3 minute length of the intro sequence. As a result I had to edit out a few ‘slow’ bits. Music stops playing in Diplomacy screen once you start pressing the ok button. Unfortunately this would require someone very skilled with hacking the Civ1Win game files to fix. I had no other issues with my Windows XP VirtualBox VM CivWin test install, however I had these extra issues occur on my Windows 98 DosBox VM CivWin test install: Music starts playing when you receive the "an emissary wishes to speak with you" message however it sometimes stops playing when you continue into the diplomacy screen. Sometimes after the above issue all sounds & music would stop working and only restarting the VM would fix it. Not sure if it's the virtual OS or the VM program. Note: All tests were done with CivWin version 1.2.0. Other versions of the game may produce different results. Testing in other Virtual Machine software or other Operating Systems may also produce different results. CivWin will not work on 64 bit Windows hence why a VM is required. ====================================================================== 4.

Unfortunately Civ1 has no built in zoom controls so if you want things to be bigger then lower the Windows XP resolution inside the Virtual Machine and the game will resize to fit. If it feels a bit choppy and slightly schizophrenic that's because '3 different Blakes' worked on it haha! Basically I made the video in 2018, then came back to it in 2019 and added lots of stuff, and then came back to it again in 2021 and deleted a bunch of stuff & added even more new stuff lol! I tried to intermix and smooth out the transitions between old and new footage as best as I could so hopefully it's not too bad. Just to reiterate as there's still been some confusion. This video and these mods are about CivWin (Civilization for Windows), not CivDOS, and not CivNet. While CivNet appears very similar to CivWin it is NOT identical and these mods & scenarios are NOT compatible with it.

  8. MuHa appear to be doing monthly (or at least trying to do monthly lol) developer diaries for the official Master of Magic remake... looks pretty good although some of the Wizard redesigns are not as good plus everything seems a bit bland and lacking colour compared to the original. First dev diary http://muhagames.com/dev-diary-1-june-2021/ Second dev diary http://muhagames.com/mom-dev-diary-2-august-2021/ Third dev diary https://muhagames.com/mom-dev-diary-3-september-2021/
  9. Here's another 2 new dev diaries from my Civilization 2 Red alert 2 scenario. In this fourth dev diary we hit our stride and finish off all building types - big ones, little ones, and the biiiig difficult 3x3 super skyscrapers! RA2 Dev Diary 04 - Final Super Buildings in the Civilization 2 - Red Alert 2 Scenario https://www.moddb.com/mods/civilization-2-red-alert-2-siege-of-new-york-scenario/news/final-super-buildings . In the fifth dev diary we finally finished all city buildings and base buildings allowing us to finalise the design of the map.

  10. Have made some updates to the list including separating out the compilation CDs and download section zip backups from the regular websites into their own new section at the top of the list. In this new section I put all the CD scenario & map collections I've found (including a new one uploaded to ModDB by a guy called foo_jam2002 that has some interesting scenarios I haven't seen before in it), along with recently acquired huge backup collection zips, and finally the new browsable backup collections I'm in the process of building on ModDB and Web Archive Library. .
  11. Hey guys, Big update as it's been a while! I've been busy doing lots of searching and tracking down long lost mods & scenarios to rescue and upload. I've also added some new search categories of interest to me and made some big changes to existing ones... Merged C&C and Red Alert together to save space. Merged Doom with Fallout & Mad Max under a new main Apocalypse category to save space & also added new Terminator, Judge Dredd, Zombies, & After WW3 to the Apocalypse category too. Added a new Starcraft category and combined it with the existing Warcraft one to save space Added a new Lunar/Moon category to the existing Mars Colonization one. Added a new Final Fantasy category Added a new Civ Crossover category (Mods that make a Civ game look like another Civ game) as I've been finding some good stuff for these and wonder if there's more out there! Regarding that rescue work keeping me busy I recently started a huge new scenario catalog & rescue project creating proper download pages at CivFanatics (even rescuing lost scenarios that are not part of this search cause I'm nice like that lol), as well as extra scenario download mirror pages on ModDB and Internet Archive Library to ensure they don't get lost again as both those sites are long living & offer free hosting. At the moment I'm setting up Civ2 scenario libraries on these other sites but I look forward to setting up these library file mirrors for other Civ game scenarios in the future. Uploading to these sites is not hard (I've written guides in my thread) so I hope others follow my example and add to all these collections in the future to ensure all these amazing pieces of work live on!

  12. SCORE! Had some more victories with these very lost scenarios thanks to multiple helpers. A collector named Kunto contacted me with a huge file list from his collection that appears mostly from the Apolyton backups, I requested a few of them and some turned out to be ones I was after. Then Solver gave me access to the entire Apolyton Civ2 downloads backup (containing hundreds scenarios/mods/maps/graphics) which has these same files I was after and more! Then to top it all off Thunderfall got back to me with Jeelen/Agent327's MoOJr4 scenario and also gave me a huuuuge file list of the entire CFC downloads area where it looks like even more of Jeelen's work is there which is good as he did some cool enhanced remakes of some of Kobayashi's famous scenarios. Firstly I was able to find the missing sound files for both The Martian Scenario by James Thomson and the Star Trek Wars Scenario by Joseph Santurri in Solver's Poly backups which was awesome! I've updated their downloads at CFC and on the mirrors. The MoonLand Modpack v3.0 by Frederic Meunie (CiC) I'd been after this one for a while as it appears to be one of the first lunar mods that kicked oiff things as John Valdez and others took this and did some great scenarios with it. Both Kunto and Solver had it! I added a title.gif for fun. It's a bit weird with trees and pengiuns etc so not as advanced as I'd hoped but still pretty cool and was quite a popular mod back in the day from the old convos I saw so I've preserved it. CivFanatics Downloads Area Star Trek: Mission on Vesta Scenario v2.0 by Dirk Weber (CiC) Another one I found existed in my giant lost website search but couldn't find the file. Turned out it made it's way to Poly but due to a slightly obscure file name I must have missed it or mixed it up with another. On closer inspection it's not as good as I'd hoped with barely any custom units or graphics but it's still got some interesting stuff going on so have backed it up! CivFanatics Downloads Area Command & Conquer 2 Red Alert Scenario by ?Unknown? (CiC) No it's not my one haha.. this is an old one out there that I'd seen mentioned on a few sites but couldn't find a working download. Both Kunto and Solver had it. On closer inspection its nothing special and has barely any custom graphics. Also while the German files hasd custom C&C unit names the english ones were still default Civ2 ones. I don't think the author spoke much English and was just going for pure compatibility with english versions instead of properly transferring all his stuff over. So I did a very quick google translate of the unit names, some events, readme, and intro text. Gave it a title.gif too. Sadly there were no author details in any of the text or Ger files, nor were they on Ultimate Civ2, Apolyton & Dave's Civ2 websites that hosted this scenario unfortunately. CivFanatics Downloads Area Master of Orion - MoOjr4 Scenario by J.L. Nijholt (MGE) This was a very happy moment! I've been trying to get this one for ages and hit setback after setback. It was on WPC but the download was lost, WPC archive org backup was missing, Solver had lost his WPC downloads backup too, CFC download not working, CFC archive org backup was missing it, atomic backup was missing it, I was able to track down Jeelen himself and bring him back to CFC but he'd lost his copy too lol! But then Thunderfall delivered and found it in his backups! This one did NOT disappoint in testing.. it's a total overhaul of the original MOOJr scenario. Heaps of cool improvements! CivFanatics Downloads Area On top of that it looks like I can see some more of Jeleen's scenarios in Thunderfalls file list so I'll try to get them too although Thunderfall is a busy guy so it may take a while. But I think it's worth it as like I said above you can see from his old CFC thread he took some of Kobayashi's amazing scifi scenarios and enhanced them. So just as I remove 6 items off the lost list (which I've moved to the top post in this thread) I'm now gonna add 4 new ones haha.. oh dear lol.. but hopefully Thunderfall will be able to find them. Especially as I'm yet to score a Star Trek Voyager scenario as St Leo's one is still missing and now I see Jeelen made one that's missing too. Star Trek First Contact (Kob ST-BAQ Redo) by Jeelen / Agent327 – first_contact.7z (1.8MB) Source1 Star Trek Voyager by Jeelen / Agent327 – voyager.7z (1.3MB) Source1 Star Trek Dominion War (Kob ST-DW Redo) by Jeelen / Agent327 – warp_9.7z (1.9MB) Source1 Star Trek TNG by Jeelen / Agent327 – tng.7z (3.1MB) Source1 .
  13. SCORE! Over at CivFinatics a kind fellow named minipow01 saw my list and gave me 4 scenarios to match against my list! These were the results of my checks on his files... 1) I've checked out Battle of Endor and yup this is definitely the right one as Markus's name is in the events file, the file size matches, the intro text matches Dustin's description text on his site perfectly, and the screenshot matches too. Curiously the scenario comes with the readme file from Justin Giles's Tatooine scenario which is a bit misleading. I guess Mark used Justin's graphics and kept the readme as a credit. Missing a title.gif so I added a generic one for fun. Have created a download page for it and can tick this one off as found! 2) Yup this is definitely Ambra's Star Wars! This is great! His intro text didn't load though so I renamed the files to match. Have created a download page for it and can tick this one off as found! 3) Unfortunately this is a different Battle of Hoth by Brandon Dunaway that I already have and forgot to mention (I think it's already on CFC & Poly but I'll double check that) so I've added a 'not Brandon Dunaway's one' to the Hoth entry in my file list above. 4) I've checked out Dune and nope this is an entirely different one I didn't know about!!! Wowzer!!! I've found author details in the rules file, this was by David Greenfield and he titles it CivDune. There's no intro and the map is completely different to the ones on Dustin's site so yup this is definitely another one. Great news, although that of course means the original 3 above are still missing. His custom ocean replacements were incorrectly sized resulting in nasty transparency bleed errors across the whole map so I've fixed it. Missing a title.gif so I added a generic one for fun. Have created a download page for it !
  14. Quoting myself here lol.. as with 24 hours of me posting the above and beginning my big forum history searches I've found this very thing, a total conversion SMAC scenario for Civ2.. Once again it's John Valdez / Civpartisan that had a similar dream to me.. except sadly he & his modding partner Andrew didn't finish it. Got quite far too! Will try to get their final files and have a think about whether I can quickly do something with it (eg merge it with John Mavin's scenario) in-between everything else I'm doing haha. Thought I'd list a few more I'm having no luck finding so far... due to downloads failing, no backups, authors either long gone or no longer have a copy of their work etc. EDIT: LIST MOVED TO THIS THREAD'S FIRST/TOP POST HERE ! .
  15. After 25 years of nothing it really is an amazing time for us diehard Master of Magic fans! There I was a few weeks ago getting excited about Seravy’s new Caster of Magic 2 for Windows release and then something even more amazing got officially announced, as we finally have confirmation of the Slitherine mystery MoM project I’ve posted about here before! Slitherine are working with Thea series creators MuHa games on a Official Master of Magic Remake!!! MuHa are a small indie studio so sure enough it's nothing AAA however the new remake already looks and sounds pretty good! I can already see people complaining about the hexes and lack of multiplayer but neither of those bother me. You can find the announcement videos (they've remade the old intro!), some nice pictures, and game info on their new Steam and GoG pages! But I'll stick a few here too!
