Mod of the Week: True Terraforming

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

Truly, the greatest known power in this universe is the human mind. Every day, it creates something from nothing; it has the power to create and destroy thousands of times a day and remind you to pick up your dry cleaning. But what if your mind was able to imagine something and have it manifest in the real world? That's kind of what True Terraforming does.

This mod, which allows you to plop down terrain in areas of the map where there previously was none, is one of the more unique offerings we've seen in Civilization: Beyond Earth's Steam Workshop. By firing off special satellite units, you can summon plots of land, convert tiles into water, grasslands or canyons, and even add basic and strategic resources to designated tiles.

True Terraforming is available in both English and German languages. You can download the mod in Steam Workshop here.

What do you think of True Terraforming? Do you like being able to change tiles? Should no one have all that power? Got a better mod to share with us? Sound off in the comments below or let us know what you think on Twitter at @Civgame and on Facebook!
