Make Civ 6 look like Civ 5 with this Firaxis dev’s mod

Many fans of Civilization did not enjoy the latest game’s artstyle, saying that the cartoony style didn’t fit with the game. So if you want Civilization 6 to look a lot more like Civilization 5, there is now a mod for that.

The Environment Skin is made by the game’s art director, Brian Busatti and changes the visuals to look strikingly like Civ 5. This isn’t just a mod that changes colours and tones, but it alters terrain textures and more to highlight certain details.

“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,” Busatti wrote.

This is what the mod looks like in action. Here is a shot of the game running the mod.

While this is what the game looks like without the mod. Notice how different farms look, as well as forests.

The mod is compatible with every release, including the latest expansion Gathering Storm.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
