h3. Vox populi

We play using Vox Populi overhaul mod: [:https://ipfs.bitcheese.net/ipfs/QmS11kVVHBgVxFEhg8CzezfaZhGdetPxZbKneCM7Ao5dET?filename=vp_12.15-1.ts.7z]. Unfortunately, mod is Windows-only, so use Wine on Linux. To install mod, unarchive it into <civ folder>/Assets/DLC. Also, before changing your mods, clear My Documents/My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization 5/cache folder.

All modpack versions are available here: [:https://ipfs.bitcheese.net/ipns/QmaoRxP84cVtptSVewaYuVDcxW5H4aWjApN487fMsyipRg]

h2. Installation under Wine

If you decide to try installing civ yourself,

bc. $ winetricks vcrun6 mfc42

otherwise the installer will crash right at the start.

The installer might crash with a floating point error under latest versions of wine, e.g. under *wine-2.20*, available as *wine-staging* package on debian stretch.
Use earlier version. It works fine under *wine-1.8.7*, available from *wine* package on debian stretch. However, game itself often does not work with wine 1.8.7, so switch versions back after installation.

When I used @export LC_ALL=ru_RU.UTF-8@ to fix encoding problems in the installer, they were indeed fixed, but the installer crashed in the end. So I redid it with @export LC_ALL=C@, and it worked fine. Ignore broken encoding, just press continue whenever possible and choose *english* language when prompted with installation options.
