This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
My first profile finally complete! Please let me know what you think.... never thought back playing Civ I that I would be here in 2010 playing Civ V in my lounge on a 50' screen controlled by my wireless Xbox controller.. how times have changed .. anyways enough reminiscing .. to important stuff ..

I have mapped pretty much all the keyboard commands for Civilization V on this profile. I have kept it simple if you just want to use the mouse functions for more a click and point game, but I have also included 3 Shift modes for full control which are accessed via the shoulder buttons.

Left Shoulder Shift (RED): Civilian Worker's Commands

Right Shoulder Shift (GREEN): Information Screens (Diplomacy, Social Policy, Tech etc)

Left Trigger Shift (BLUE): Air Unit Controls

Standard Unshifted: Navigation, Basic Unit Control, Attack etc

Most buttons have a press/hold functionality in all Shift modes, be sure to check them all out..

Screenshot attached for some more detail.
