Hi guys!

I have finally got the go ahead to let you go nuts with the modding as you please. Here is a forum where you can discuss freely as long as you own a registered copy of the game.

First off:
- As I stated earlier, we won't be able to develop any modding tools for you. But I understand that some people have made progress on the subject on their free time and may have things to share in here. Go ahead!
- If you have any questions or problems while doing these things, I will do my best to make Ino-Co answer. They are however doing other things and supporting modding was never in their contract so I can't make them help you.

Some rules:
- Piracy is still illegal! Do not discuss how to crack the game, where to get pirated copies or promote illegal distribution in any way. Discussing such matters will lead to your permanent ban from the entire Paradoxplaza forums
- We would be happy if you would keep distribution of any mods you create to our own forums. Mods that are found to be distributed elsewhere may be removed from these forums

I will probably add on more information over time in here. But this is what I have to say right now. And I know that it can be hard to do modding without official modding tools. But it seems there is knowledge and interest enough in this community to be able to work around such petty blockers.

Good luck! Ask any questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them and help you out. I would really like to see a prospering modding scene for this game (even though it might be too late now) and I promise I will do whatever I can to support one despite my lack of knowledge on the actual subject. But I hope to learn!

Best Regards
Björn

Dropping in to say that you're awesome, BjornB.
Hopefully a brainiac can develop a .pack unpacker/packer and we can go nuts! *cries tears of joy*

sigh..one step forward two steps back? Is this authoritarian need to have ridiculous community killing forum rules a European thing? Lesson 1 - When you have driven away 99.9% of the small community you had - dont obstruct those that remain with further red tape. Seriously who gives an S where these things are hosted..are you really going to spend time enforcing this?

Can you make this forum at least visible to those who havnt logged in so if people are checking back but not logging in they can see it exists?

I did not say it will be heavily enforced. I just said it might be removed as there might be complications regarding ownership and such when you distribute stuff in several places. Also having the mods here will somewhat limit access to them to the people who actually own a registered copy of the game. It is a "DRM" system we successfully applied to our titles developed by Paradox Development Studio.

What do you mean by making the forums visible to those who haven't logged in? It is visible to anyone with a registered copy of the game no matter when they last logged in.

Even if I log in always, I agree with Fenryder about letting everyone see the sub-forum (not the threads). Let the forum be seen by everyone, but when someone tries to enter as guest or the game is not registered, just show a message pointing that those two conditions have to be met.

Well if you want to use the modding subforum as a tool to attract people and encourage them to buy the game, you should let them read said subforum and learn about the mods that are available, but require game registration for downloads.

But anyways given the low visibility of this game I suspect your policy is ill-conceived. You'd probably get many more new customers by allowing mods on popular sites like the Nexus than by converting the three pirates who love your game enough to want to mod it.

mods made me play all civ games like 5x aslong as i normally would have played them. since this game is quite similar the same would probably apply. so i think opening the mod forum like metatoaster said would realy realy be cool, since i cant mod myself and am dependend on an active modding community to get my stuff ;-)

Is it really that hard to log in? I guess I just don't get your point.

I have to wonder how it's possible for you all to have such a uniquely confused outlook on modding, and perhaps on how the Internet works in general.

I must say I'm enjoying this game a lot but I'm somewhat a beginner in terms of modding. I've made a couple of mods for other games, but right now I don't have time to get into modding Warlock. I just wish there were more people interested though, this game has got a lot of potential. I wish someone made LOTR mod or something :)

Hi Bjorn,

I was wondering if it were possible to get a list of files + what part of functionality they cover. Aswell as perhaps a short list of things that can be modified (ie. everything not on the list can't be modded).

Would that be possible? or am I 3-4 years late to the party? :D
