Beyond Earth Mod of the Week: Flexible Start Location

Welcome to Mod of the Week, where we highlight Civilization: Beyond Earth mods created by the community. This week: Flexible Start Location.

When making planetfall in Beyond Earth, players who opt for Retrograde Thrusters during their pre-game setup can choose from a small group of tiles where to land their ship and build their first city. Flexible Start Location, a mod created by Steam user preffect, is a simple addition that triples the area in which players may choose to make planetfall. With greater options available to them, players may better choose what resources are available to them.

You can download Flexible Start Location on Steam Workshop here.
