Are there any saved game editors for Civilization V

I was initially interested in changing the difficulty mid game, but a save file editor could open up whole new avenues of fun :)

    Perhaps this should be re-worded to 'How can I edit saved games in Civ V?' ?

  • You can use bmaupin's save game editor to edit several settings of a saved game, see here: gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/73480/…

  • There is actually a web version to make it easy to edit the save game: bmaupin.github.io/civ5save-editor

Nope. Not that it's not possible, just no one ever made one (IIRC, there was a save editor for pre-expansion Civ4, but nothing afterwards)

However, there is a mod that lets you edit many many things ingame (eg/ terrain, techs, diplomacy, etc) that probably covers most of what you would want.
