Mod of the Week: EnhancedLoadout

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

Your beginning choices in Civilization: Beyond Earth are undoubtedly as important as your choices on the planet's surface. It's these pre-game decisions that ultimately shape how you play Beyond Earth.

Enter: EnhancedLoadout, a mod that increases the variety of choices players may make when embarking upon a new expedition beyond Earth. Want to start out with well-rounded Science, Culture and Energy? Take Inventors as your Colonists when you start up a new game. Think your neighbors are going to be a little too aggressive? Outfit your spacecraft with a security system to increase your capital's damage.

On its surface, EnhancedLoadout may seem to be a simple mod - and it is - but it's these additional choices that ultimately make EnhancedLoadout a very worthwhile mod to install. With an expanded set of pre-game choices, players may better experiment and find the play style that best suits them. And that's why we like EnhancedLoadout - it empowers players in new ways.
