Can I play Tropico 4: Gold Edition without the content from Modern Times?
The additional content is never included in the main campaign or classic challenges, while it is always included in the Modern Times campaign and Modern Times challenges.
Only sandbox games allow you to choose whether or not to include the content from Modern Times.
By default, sandbox games include the content from Modern Times. To begin a sandbox game without the additional content, follow these steps:
From the Main Menu, select Play.
The Choose A Map screen will appear. Select the map you wish to play and select Forward.
The Game Settings screen will appear. Set Modern Times to Off.
