Figuring out the optimum placement of districts in Civilization VI is usually a ache – with so many potential adjacency bonuses to maintain observe of, it may be nigh unimaginable to work out what you ought to plunk down the place within the massively widespread 4X game. Thankfully, you now can simply add some handy tacks to your map that can do all that math for you.

The Detailed Map Tacks mod by wltk is elegant in its simplicity, actually: you merely add a map tack to a hex, and the mod will present you the potential yields and adjacency bonuses you stand to realize by constructing districts close by. The campus district, for instance, positive aspects additional science for every adjoining mountain tile, and the tacks will remind you of this when you resolve to position your campus.

You may even use keybindings for inserting and eradicating the map tacks – by default, Shift+A provides a tack, whereas Shift+D removes one, and Shift+S toggles the tacks’ visibility on and off. It’s a easy sufficient mod to be appropriate with most different UI mods for Civilization VI, so long as they don’t alter the underlying logic for the map tacks – which most gained’t. Wltk says the tacks must also help most customized districts present in different mods, so long as they function easy adjacency bonuses.

The Detailed Map Tacks mod was created by the identical crew of modders that made the Harmony in Diversity mod we highlighted final week, which can be price testing.
