First things first.
Be sure you have "pony Units" and your desired civilization you wish to ponify. Downloading mods is very simple, just click the 'subscribe' check-mark on the mods page and when you start your game click 'mods' and Civ 5 will automatically download the mods.
Making it show for all Pony Civs
I'm gonna show you how to do this!




So if you're like me then you downloaded every pony civ you could find on steam, and the pony units mod, then excitedly ran the game only to find that the pony units mod only made about half the civs into ponies. Well fear not because I have the solution!

First you'll navigate to Civ 5's MODs folder.
Documents/My games/Sid Meier's Civilization 5

Inside the MODS folder you'll find a folder for each mod you've downloaded, open the folder of the civilization you would like to turn into ponies. Now most of the time there will be an 'XML' folder inside, if there is open that, if there is not then the file you're looking for will be right there.


Now open the file named after the civilization (Or some times the file will be named 'Civilization' or 'Civ_(Name of civ)' in this case its 'Aurora' Open this with NOTEPAD, or your preferred code editor. Don't open it with a word document program as it gets confused when saving.

If you're looking at the right file then somewhere near the top you should see
<Type>CIVILIZATION_(NAME)</Type> again in this case its:
<Type>CIVILIZATION_AURORA</Type>

But we don't care about that, We're looking for the line that says:
<ArtStyleSuffix>_EURO</ArtStyleSuffix>
And all you have to do is change _EURO to _PONY, save, and poof! That civ's units will be ponies as they should be!

Never mind, I'm just an idiot.

What if the line already is _PONY but still shows regular units? I'm trying to add the units to New Lunar Republic and the line as shown is:

<ArtStyleSuffix>_PONY</ArtStyleSuffix>

((Also, great guide, completely relatable with "downloaded every pony civ you could find on steam, and the pony units mod, then excitedly ran the game only to find that the pony units mod only made about half the civs into ponies."))

((Why so much hate?! :steamsad: ))
