Beyond Earth Mod of the Week: Ice Begone

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

Wouldn't it be great if humanity's new home was full of life and resources? This is the case, for the most part, on most Beyond Earth maps, but what if we could take out all of the ice tiles at the Poles? Those tiles, which offer no resources and, on water tiles, block movement of your aquatic units, can be a real nuisance, wouldn't you say?

If you think so, then check out Ice Begone, a simple mod created by Steam user Ryika. You may remember Ryika from our recent community spotlight piece - and here he is again offering us another solid mod! Good job, Ryika.

You can download Ice Begone on Steam Workshop here.
