After much longer than it really should have taken, the first full release of the Geneforge Modding Suite is here! Create and fully customize zones and export them to a complete Geneforge scenario file. NB: Always make a full backup of your Geneforge folders before using any mods. Latest version: Shaper Edition v1.2 Download from Google Drive Shaper Edition v1.1 Download from Google Drive Shaper Edition v1.0 Download from Google Drive To get started, extract the contents of GeneMS.zip into a directory of your choice and execute run.bat. A console window will appear and ask you to enter your Geneforge 5 directory, where the executable and Geneforge 5 Files folder are (i.e. C:\Program Files\Geneforge 5). After this is entered, the modding suite will load the textures and present you with a blank zone.
