Ich benutze MX-15 Debian Jessie 32 bit.

Die 32bit-Version für Linux funktioniert bei mir nicht. 

Aber schlimmer noch:

Auch die 32 bit MS-Windows-Version lässt sich nicht 

mittels Wine starten.

guys how do you get it on full screen because ı can't even play it

So cleared a couple games (lost on each, Civ rust is real) and boi, I've been missing some Civ 5 lately.

Can't do much but leave a like, good work mate.


So good. Spent hours on it and dont want to put it down.

I love this game a lot. It is one of the best games I've ever played. I've spent many hours on it. Believe me even I hurt my eyes due to long playing. I really appreciate the work and more importantly it is really free without ads. 

However, if there are a few things this game can become better I would say, based on my experience, can it be done in such a way that I can easily bombard the enemy units near my cities. And is it possible to make tile yields look smaller because they cover resources and tile types. It causes difficulties when finding information on those tiles. I don't know this is alright but it would be more fun if I can trade with city-states (rather than conquering them and taking all the resources they have hahaha) and the last thing sleep command should stop computer from checking on unit especially when i have a lot bombers in cities it is a little tedious to press a lot spacebar or if there is a setting that can help me with that please give me a light.

I believe this game is as good as it is. If you cannot change anything i mentioned, it would still be fine. I still enjoy the game very much.


I love the game and for me, it's a whole new world that I'm yet to explore fully.


Today my antivirus gave me a message saying it blocked the app as it detected an IDP.Generic. I've tried downloading the game but I still have the issue, and I didn't have the problem when I first downloaded the game (just over a week ago). Can anyone help?


Games starts lagging to unplayable levels without mods which is a major problem...


I've ran into that. It turns out that the problem was with how my kindles OS hogs resources and keeps a million programs running in background. Which combined to create an unstable pplatform. Try parking a bunch of stuff that doesn't need to be hanging around in standby mode.

 Also you haven't given any info about: the number of competing nations and nation states; the size of the map; what your system is; how many turns in you were when your system became unstable; exactly wtf is lagging, (eg. While the computer players are taking their turns, to calculate auto moves,) ; which animations you have turned on; are you playing multiplayer or single; how old your device is, etc.


i figured it out with your reply, thanks!


Glad to help. I had a lot of frustration when I was playing on my old pad. I love long games in huge worlds with  and even with only two or three opponents I would get ANRs  very frequently by the time I was two or three hundred turns in. Especially when the game auto saved. 


A lot of work was probably put into the game, but unfortunately almost nothing works. It feels like a very early beta version.

e.g. "0/2 units" are displayed at the bottom left, but although there are 2 units, the left/right arrows don't work to switch between units. OK: Once in a while the arrows work, but only for one run. 

Or the tutorial: hardly any of the actions described work. Either you have to call up a city menu, which you can't find, or you are supposed to choose "found a city" and you can actually find this command! - but of course you can't activate it.

But to sum up: even the first 3 minutes are very disappointing...


Ah, check menu-civilopedia for more tutorials. For that white arrorw, that is your ‘movement points', telling you how many ’steps' can you move in that turn.

I'm confused by your apparent problems as I've just started playing this too and had no problems at all, the arrows switch between units you haven't seen before and it assumes that you don't want them to do anything if you skip past them... just like Civi|isation does it; as for the tutorial I followed it to the letter and had no problems at all (if anything it was a little too fast but maybe it was because my first city was  far from a lot of stuff it assumed was around *shrug* - I started a random large map so that's on me!

[Edit: Have you played the civi|isation computer games series before? I've as much experience with the board game as the computer game... I don't know how that changes things but the board game interface is... intricate ;) :P


I do not face any of these problems.


No idea what you are on about. Try using Logic...


I think it’s possible to add a naming system specifically for units and support renaming.


You can always do this in the 'promote'


Absolutely amazing I love it :D


解压之后点那个?jre    .exe    .jar   .json


点.exe 如果安装过java的话,可以忽略.exe直接点.jar 提醒:用英语发言更有可能得到回复。








Love this game


is this the exact same as the one on google play

Where did the world wrap option go? I fresh installed via itch app on Linux Desktop and now it is gone. I really can't be playing a flat earth game.

(1 edit) (+2)

Go to options-advancd-experimental and enable it. The world wrap has caused too much troulble like crashing.

(1 edit) (+2)(-4)

Hmm ... I like the concept, but I really wish the graphics weren't quite so pixellated. Seriously, I think civ 2 had higher resolution. Trying it for the first time, it's hard to know what I'm looking at sometimes, and it's actually physically painful to go full screen.

Bruh its meant for 2016 iphones

or crappy androids 


i love love love t he graphics! 


Yeah, I'm with you. The graphics are *perfect*.

This game is better than Civ VI, it's just science.


There are mods that change the graphics called tilesets, if i'm not wrong the top mod is a tileset

Huh. Didn't know it could be modded. Where do I find these mods? Itch.io isn't exactly the nexus. I know I've found a few mods for other games on here but the navigation isn't great.


Above "Options" in the main menu








love it and i wanna fuck the creator


add spys


Such a great game and really cool now that all the units have there own little pixel art soldier to go with them. But I think it would be really cool if the pixel art soldier was shown in the Civilopedia so you could see all the different units. But Great game 10/10


97/100 This civilization 5 remake is awesome. But I think that battle animation is something that is missing.


my request add more damage to nucks   


Nukes already create fallout and deal a load of damage, isn't that enough?




You can mod nukes if you'd like.


ok tell me  the mod


You can refer to the github file in this link.



tell me me how long will it take to add diplomatic victory (take your time but tell the time)


It was added 8 days before you sent that message. Join the Discord server to see update announcements.

but when will they add it


good game


how to get mods



Main menu, "Mods", click on one you want, "Download".


I don't see anything except civ 5 stuff


I can't see it clearly but I believe you do not have access to the internet. Make sure you are connected to it to be able to download mods.

(1 edit)

I do, so how would I be able to be on this website if I  didn't have internet. so I proved that it isn't about wifi that the cause so it is something else.

Here is the image zoomed in

It says Could not download mod list


Civ 5 on a low budget that can also run on potatoes and has mod compatibility

5/5 stars

this is a THICCC yes 

Where can i download maps?

nice game

i like this game sussy boy 

hello very good games but how do we activate the modes?

Icône de validation par la communauté

Hi, I'm trying some mods, specially Civ 5 and 6 mods, but when the map generates it misses the hills lol, it's happening to someone else? It's some way to fix this? Looks like the mods are pretty good :(

PD. I'm playing it on Android


The mod is outdated, the problem lies on the developers of the mod.


When I see a vector and a pixel at the same picture, I want to vomit.

Pixel art graphics looks very good but vector interface is terrible, sorry.


I see that the dude who drew the tiles perfectly understood the basic rules of pixel art - he used a fixed palette and no translucencies. But the dude who drew UI doesn't understand those rules at all, which is sad.


This is a good point - although you probably could have said it in a slightly nicer way.


Sorry, mom.


no worries, you are forgiven :)

Which difficulty is hardest? Settler or Deity?

probably diety, in other games with this naming more powerful name = more difficulty

(1 edit)

how do i download this game?? 

Hello, very good game, I would miss the Spanish language but you still have my 5 stars, you are great, continue with your work
