Finally, There’s A Mod For Civilization VI To Make It Look Like Civilization V

Someone finally did it


While Civilization VI, and its two expansions, have improved the upon the 4X formula it has made to wide appeal, there is one lingering problem: There are folks that are not sold on the art direction.

Civilization VI’s art hearkens back to the style of pre-Civilization V where leaders look exaggerated and the world itself looks simple, though legible. Civ V brought the series a more realistic art style, with lush jungles, detailed mountains and darker sea water.

And if you are among those folks who just cannot play Civ VI because it looks watered down or too much of a mobile game in comparison to Civ V; good news, there’s a mod for that.

Environment Skin: Sid Meier’s Civilization V on Steam Workshop does exactly that. It turns the map to look closer to Civ V. Interestingly enough, the mod was created by Civ VI’s own art director Brian Busatti.

It also serves as a showcase of what you can do with Civ VI’s mod tools, which is available for everyone to use.

” I was challenged by the team to create an expansive mod using Mod Buddy, and this was the end result. It’s an example of how much you can change the visuals and I hope it provides inspiration to try your own modifications.”

The mod is compatible with all of Civ VI’s releases, including the Gathering Storm expansion. It will not impact any save games and game performance.

Just subscribe to the page and it should be available in the game the next time you boot it up.
