This is an ongoing post containing my Tropico 5 Mods and will likely be updated in the future.

Hey there, and thanks for checking out my Tropico 5 (and when it comes out 6) mod page. I also post my mods on Github &, but beta mods and the like may appear here before anywhere else. If you aren’t sure how Tropico mods work, check out my post on installing Tropico 5 mods.

My Tropico 5 Mods

Bio-fuel Plant Standalone

Adds only the bio-fuel plant component from my Cannabis Kingdom mod, runs on corn instead of hemp. Great for an environmentalist-centric island looking to meet power consumption needs and get rid of extra corn clogging up docks.

Recommended Tropico 5 Mods

Mod Loader – (Required) This one is less of a recommendation, and more of a requirement. DarthPresidente’s mod loader allows for easy scripting for modders, and easy install for users.

Resource Manager – Another DarthPresidente mod, incredibly helpful and allows for a lot more control over resource flow.

Papi Edicts – No longer being maintained, but an awesome well thought out mod. Adds 4 new edicts for every era, very immersive and balanced.

Majestic’s Coffee – A few minor bugs, but a content rich mod that adds an interesting industry to the island.

Drug Trade – (Required for Cannabis Kingdom) Another amazing mod by DarthPresidente, adds more crime, and drugs.

Palace Mover – Pretty much an essential for me. Does what it says. (Originally by Wowiwankenobi, now managed by DarthPresidente)

Forced Labor – Also a super helpful one, keeps you from having too many unemployed, particularly when there are actually jobs available.
