Civilization 6 Mod Restores Visuals From Civlization 5

Civilization VI got a mod that changes the game's visuals to be a bit more in the vein of the previous installment. The mod came from the series' artistic director, Brian Busatti.

A modification for realism fans is now available.

Subsequent installments of the popular Civilization franchise are often enriched with additional content and respond well to various modifications. This is no different in the case of Civilization VI, i.e. the last part of the turn-based strategy game cycle, in which players have a chance to develop their empire over several epochs. The developers have apparently had it with listening to player complaints about the game graphic design, so they decided to change the visuals through a mod. It changes the somewhat saccharine visual design of the game into something more reminiscent of Civilization V, i.e. the previous, 2010 installment of the series.

Interestingly, the creator of the mod is the artistic director of the series itself - Brian Busatti. The author emphasizes that in order to be able to enjoy the modification, you do not need to have installed any add-ons. The files you need to download take up less than 2.5 GB. If you are interested in the modification, you can download it directly from the Steam Workshop. In addition to the changed textures of units, buildings and the environment, the appearance of the map known from the fifth installment has also been restored. Below you can see how the game looks like after modding.
