    Is it just me or do the roads and rivers in the demo look like complete shit?
    They does, some other minor graphical glitches but nothing that isn't going to be fixed later.

    Edited:

    I think that post is missing something...
    Oh yeah, how you did it.
    Any memory editor like ArtMoney, just find Integer value for the turn and freeze it.

    One of the things I hated most about Civ IV was that whenever you had an undefended city; barbarians (or any units) could waltz right in and capture it. I'm glad to see that part of the game out.

    Gah, too bad I'm not getting Civ V until sometime next month. I'll try the demo though.

    Edited:

    The graphical advancement from Civ IV to V makes me jizz

    Try contacting them and declare war in the message area. Sometimes rightclicking on their units/teritory doesn't work.

    I've crashed twice in the past half hour from right clicking on something in my cities production queue.

    Guess I'll stop doing that then.

    The concept is still the same ,but there are a lot of new features and a few removed like religion. That's just what from I've played so far though someone else can explain it better.

    I'm having a lot of instability at the moment.

    My game was running fine for 3 hours and then it's started crapping out.

    Luckily, I lowered the auto save number.

    Bismarck has been a dick to me since 1925 AD, so I trapped his infantry in a narrow valley with mountains on both sides and pushed in from the top and bottom of the valley. He has no military because of this, and I already have tanks pushing their way to Berlin.

    Just finished the demo and England was very nice to me, always offering open borders and everything.

    It's called the Tuner and it's being added later I think, because I can't find it either. World Builder (what you used in Civ 4) is now an external map editor.

    From playing a bunch of demo games;

    It sure feels different. As an example, in Civ 4 you need Universal Sufferage to be able to use gold to speed up production in a city. So really you need to work to get two things- Universal sufferage and enough gold to pay for what you want. It's not quick or easy, you have to sacrifice stuff to get there fast.

    In Civ 5 demo you can straight out just buy what you want if you have the gold, and in the demo I'm piling up more gold than I ever saw in a game of Civ 4. I'm guessing that later in the full game a shit ton of gold is needed, that's why it flows like water in the early game of the demo.

    Easy question for you guys: Civ 5 or Dead Rising 2? After that, how long do multiplayer games usually last?

    I forgot that attacking workers meant that the unit moved to their position.
    I lost my level 7 archer that had been sieging a city-state for 1200 years straight.

    :(

    I have yet to play online for more then 4 hours, and that was on Civ 4 and we never even got very far.

    I have played almost 12 hours against bots, I assume a multiplayer match would be longer.gl

    Why not give me proper instruction, as I don't use Artmoney, instead I just use cheat engine, and I try to cheat gold and the turns to freeze but failed because turn got 193 addresses and fucks things up if I freeze them all together.

    No, Ghandi is a dick. He keeps expanding his empire into my silver and iron mines then threatening me with military action when he has a single warrior unit and I have five planes.

    Playing the demo, first time civ player

    It's extremely confusing, I'm not sure exactly what to do or where to go. I'm pretty much just randomly researching things wihtout really knowing exactly why such things are important to me, and they don't seem to affect much.

    I've got two cities, my second one produces units so slow it might as well not exist (takes 20 turns to make a worker...)

    I'm not exactly sure if it's beneficial to throw all my money towards city states or to just try and research luxury farming myself.

    Anyone have a quick-and-dirty guide to this game? Clearly there is a massive amount of depth to it, and I've been playing with tooltip mode enabled, but this only tells you so much. I'm at a point where I am not really doing anything except skipping turns because I don't know what to -do- really, except sending my scouting party around of course.

    Spend some time in the tech tree and see what each tech gives you and leads you too next.

    You'll pick up the game quite quickly if you stay at it.
