How do I add mod support into Civilization 5 for Mac when I have MainMenu.xml instead of MainMenu.lua?



  • I'm trying to enable the mod button within the Steam version of Civilization 5 for Mac. When I navigate to:

    ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/sid meier's civilization v/assets/UI/FrontEnd/MainMenu.lua

    I do not have MainMenu.lua like this answer suggests I should: instead I have MainMenu.xml which doesnt contain much in the way of text, and doesn't contain the specific line of code.

    How can I resolve this?



  • I had the same issue until after I installed TextWrangler, as the original response suggests. After I installed it and re-opened the G&K file path, there were numerous files I couldn't see before, including MainMenu.xml

    Try installing a new text editor? If the files don't appear, you may be able to open it anyway with "Open File by Name..." from within the text editor. Odds are you have the file, you just can't see it; otherwise, it's unlikely your Civ V game would work.
