I've been playing Civ 3, It's upsetting me.
Also I want then to remake Civ 2, It was awesome playing in space with aliens.
Just bought it from Steam.
Preparing for all nighter (nothing important in school tomorrow anyway)
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.
For some reason it won't open in DX11 on my computer..
Gah, too bad I'm not getting Civ V until sometime next month. I'll try the demo though.
The graphical advancement from Civ IV to V makes me jizz
currently at 351 turns, year is 1931 and I have tiger tanks ready to steam roll France, sadly it wont let me declare war on them :saddowns:
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.
It wont let me open it in Dx10 or 11 nothing happens and if i do Dx9 then it crashes as soon as it loads i have steam version.
I am going to get this, but how different is it from Civ 4?
Just played 100 turns on the demo, England are dicks.
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.
Bought it and downloaded it, now to just wait for releasing.
The demo has convinced me to get this game.
It was so much fun.
Damnit, game runs ass slow on my laptop.
It's not the greatest laptop though. Oh well, I still have 3 and 4.
We should have a game sometime, maybe on the weekend if anyone wants.
Wish I had the money for this
I keep crashing.
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 played almost 12 hours against bots, I assume a multiplayer match would be longer.gl
Yes! "Alright, everyone. Sleep break! Meet back at 1:00 P.M. tomorrow Eastern time and we'll continue!" Awesomeness.
Awww, I'm sad. I just crashed and my last save was maybe 30 mins away. Damnit.
Yeehoo, I can actually run this game. This overjoys me.
Oh, does it still have that thing where someone vassals the country you're fighting against so suddenly you have to go up against a Mega-Civ?
wowza, just stopped a 5 hour playing session. they really improved combat. hexagons are awesome too.
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.
