Wait, a non Witcher question? For shame!
Now that Civ V’s been out for a while, I thought I would repurpose part of the game. Simply put, I’d love to use the rendered terrain to create hex-based maps for use in other areas, for instance, with my D&D group.
However, I can’t seem to find a stand alone version of a map editor of any sort. The last Civ game I owned, Civ III, had a stand alone program to edit the maps, but I haven’t found anything similar for Civ V. Does Civ V have a dedicated map editor? And if it’s not a stand alone program, how do I access it in the first place?
Assuming you use Steam*:
First of all you’ll need to download the Civilization V world builder itself. Open up Steam and head to the Tools section of your games library, find Sid Meier’s Civilization V SDK and install it. Once the small download has finished you can launch the SDK at any time straight from this menu.
*Civ 5 is Steam-only I hear, my bad.
