Turing off or tuning DLC
Hey! With the Gods & Kings announcement I'm wondering if it will be possible to turn off the DLC or tune the game, choosing which part of the DLC you want to include in the game. I have bought all the DLC and especially the "Wonders of the Ancient World" makes me want to control what to include in the game I'm playing. I should think that it wouldn't be much of a problem to include or exclude the three extra wonders from the "Wonders of the Ancient World" DLC.
Is this possible?
And when the Gods & Kings DLC hits can I play with espionage without religion or vice versa? Or turn everything off? Or turn specific AI civs off?
Appreciate any comments on this!
You can play a fake multiplayer LAN-game (with only AI) and turn off the unwanted DLC like WOTAW
I'm presuming all DLC to date will be compatible. Whether you can 'simply' turn it off or not is a different matter.
I think considering release is still some weeks or months away, together with the information given by 2K so far, it is absolutely impossible to answer your questions at this time.
As for turning off DLC civs, could I ask why you would want to do that? And as an answer, I would say you can always pick the civs involved in your game from the set-up menu.
You can force it by deleting the local content on your PC i.e. go into your program files and find where the DLC data is and remove it. If you want them back, Steam remembers that you bought them, so if you verify your files, they should come back. I doubt you'll be able to delete stuff in the expansion without some modding involved, though.
Thanks anandus. Seems like fake multiplayer is the way to go without deleting the DLC. I don't want to do that. Still think it should be an easier way to do it. Should be an option through the adv. setup. Me thinks.
@tfordp: Yes I suspected that I might not get an answer to all my questions. Still... wanted to put it out there. Maybe someone picks it up. Turning off AI civs is not necessary something I desperately want to do, but choosing which civs to be in the game is not the same as turning off some. I like the randomness of the game... "which civs will I meet?" As an example: I want to play an archipelago game as Spain, but I don't want to meet Polynesia. (Since this a DLC It is possible through the MP trick, so it was probably a bad example. But still...)
