Have you ever wanted to spice up your Tropico 5 game play a little bit? Tired of the same old buildings, edicts, and upgrades? Then it might be time for you to start modding your game. Don’t worry, mods are generally safe, although they may void your warranty so be careful! Check out this awesome guide, by DarthPresidente on how to properly install T5 mods…


In order to function correctly mods need to be placed in the proper location once you download them.   Mods should be installed to your main Tropico 5 folder.  For Windows Steam users it is usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Tropico 5\
