Mods (SEIV)

Jump to: navigation, search

This page lists most of the available mods for Space Empires IV.


To install a mod, you will need a zip extraction program, such as 7-zip (freeware) or WinRar (shareware). Once such a program is installed, download the mod file. Then, you need to extract it to the folder where the SEIV executable is located (the folder where you installed SEIV, such as "C:\Program Files\Malfador Machinations\Space Empires IV"). If you are installing the TDM-modpack, it needs to be located in a folder such as "TDM-Modpack". Nearly all mods will extract to an appropriate folder by default, so you can extract them to the base SEIV folder and have them set up properly.

Loading a Mod

In the base Space Empires IV folder, there is a text file named Path.txt. This file has one working line:

Using Mod Directory := None

To load Space Empires IV using a mod, simply change "None" in this line to the name of the folder in which the mod is located. For example, if you have the TDM-Modpack installed, you would replace "None" with "TDM-Modpack." The line would then look like this:

Using Mod Directory := TDM-Modpack

Now, save Path.txt and then load up Space Empires IV. It will load the TDM-modpack instead of the default SEIV files.

Alternatively, you can use a Mod Launcher program to load mods. Such programs automatically handle rewriting Path.txt for you when you select the mod from a list and hit the "Play SEIV" button. The also allow you to load up savegames with mods directly, rather than loading up SEIV first and then loading the savegame.
