About 6 hours into my 22nd Civilization 5 binge I began to wonder why the game was so difficult to use, why the Russians were parked on my border, and what I could do to make ruling my empire easier. So I hit the modding community like a bat out of hell and this is the conclusion I came to:
My first problem is the units, they are HUGE. I swear it’s like the infantry units are almost larger than the tanks! I stumbled upon this great mod that will scale all units in the game to be more realistic. It’s called the R.E.D Mod Pack and it makes the game much easier on the eyes.
Now don’t get me wrong, the game is fantastic and the various types of playing fields help boost that fact. What I’m wondering is why I can’t start in the real world. If I’m going to be a Communist George Washington and try to take over the world, why can’t I start in North America and start dominating east? Â The exception is of course Kamchatka, that’s connected to Alaska, everyone knows this.
My last complaint with the game was its UI. It was hard to understand what was going on especially with everything happening in such a rushed order and hundreds of pop-ups giving you page after page of information.
