Okay, me and palehorse are talking civ and its eveloution. I feel that any civ after civ1 (including civ3) is a derivitive of the original. Yes civ2 and the like are different from the original, but how different are they? You add a government here and there and some units and a little better graphics and walla, you have a new version of the same game. Now, Im not saying that is bad, Im simply stating that civ2 is not that much different from the original. Oh tell me the ways Im wrong.

I agree. It was a good thing that Microprose didn't make Civ2 completely different from Civ1...

I think that this should be obvious, as the game is called Civilization <u>II</u> and not something else. SMAC is the civilization idea tweaked and CTP is Civ turned to crap. But Civ II is and should be an evolved version of Civ

Yeah, of course they are the same. It's obvious. I don't see a point to even mention it.

Civ three has an entirely new machine!!!

Yaaaaaaay!!!

I think of Civ-2 as being an update of civ-1. As better tech is discovered, the games are (hopefully) improved. I hope that civ-3 is familiar, but with more features and better graphics.

I wonder why they are spending all that effort on the graphics. Firaxis should start reading our posts, and make better diplomacy and AI.

The diplomacy sucks cause:
AI gets an advantage-can make multiple demands, can declare war at will, and can form alliances so easily

AI sucks cause:
well, you know

The goal for CivIII to aim at is decent AI and diplomacy!

At their site they say that they are paying ALOT of attention to diplomacy.

Yes, but all they showed us in detail so far is the graphics.

Show the dip screen, or actually showing the AI winning. nah, that'll give away too much of the game.

Sid isn't even working on it. He's just a "director".

Yeah, he's director of programming, so what he says goes.

Does that mean that Bush isn't running the country because hes not digging the trench on 3rd ave?

I think Bush is the president now?

I know Clinton was 'or something?

I guess your right. I watched too many gangster movies. I thought it was going to turn out where Sid is being used as a puppet so they could lable the game under his name and have good reputation.
