    Any idea whether this is compatible with Civ V Nights? Screenshots look great!

There are actual chokepoints you can use as a defensive advantage, which is simply not possible in Civ4.
    I find movement on the whole far more awkward in hex systems. You can't really see at a glance how far you're capable of moving, especially at an amateur level. Nevermind the duck walking which characterises hex systems.

    There's a lot of possibility of using chokepoints in Civ IV, too, you just need the right mapgen. The best were often the fantasy map generators that'd do mountains with snakey corridors which you could put a fort down in. Chokepoint control in Civ V is just far more awkward, especially when trying to move your own units past.

    Yes, and?

    Should be! It just alters the way the map is created, it shouldn't have problems with gameplay mods.
