Archive for September, 2012


I’m taking a break from modding to spend extra time with family. I’ll probably be back at it again later this week or next. 🙂


Civup v2.0.46


  • Fixed a bug with Artist culture not showing on the tooltip when using Civup without Gem.

Civup v2.0.45


  • Changed some code in an attempt to reduce lag. Click for details.

  • Humanism no longer has prerequisites.
