:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


Unable to de-activate this mod. In the Tools Section, Mods subsection: I Subscribed to the mod, but found it too dark. I then de-activated it by de-selecting the green selection button next to the mod, exited the game and restarted it. I opened a Skirmish game, but the mod was still operating. I then Unsubscribed from the mod, exited the game and even ran a “Verify Integrity of Game Files” from the Properties menu. When I started up the game again and selected a Skirmish game to play, the Day Night Cycle Mod was still operative. I truly don’t know what to do to stop it from operating. I have changed maps, civilizations, etc., to no avail. The Day Night Cycle mod is still there.

  • Sorry, I was not saving/recording the game, unfortunately.

I would like to add a further detail to this bug report. It appears that now every Skirmish game I initiate defaults to Night Only.

My humble apologies. The “bug” was not the Day / Night Cycle. It was the “We Hunt in the Dark” mod that had reactivated. It was only when I went through the whole list of mods that I had previously subscribed to, that I found this one. Not sure why it was ‘Selected’ again, as I didn’t do that, but at least this explains what happened.
