View Full Version : Advanced Tribes

Mar 09, 2001, 11:01 PM
What's the largest and most advanced tribe you've ever discovered?

Most of mine were size 1 cities with nothing, but there were the rare size 2 cities with a temple and a marketplace.

The largest I discovered was a huge size 4 city with temple, marketplace, barracks, granary, and a courthouse.

Unfortunately, I had to disband the city because it was in the middle of the desert with minus 3 food.

Has any of my fellow CivFanatics discovered larger tribes?

The largest advanced tribe I discovered is size 3, I think.

i think it depends on what year you are in the game on how big the advanced tribe is.

I once got a size 4 city with a granary, temple, and marketplace, and this wasn't out in the desert or anything. It was a really good find.

The biggest I ever found was a size 4 with a granary, temple, and courthouse. I then promptly lost it to a lousy barb uprising a few turns later.

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at THAT man.

I'm surprised that you'd get an advanced tribe in the middle of the desert. The computer will only build citieson what it considers 'fertile' terrain: plains and grassland, so I'd've thought that you'd only get advanced tribes on these terrains as well.

Size 4 as well, but I am not sure what came along with it.

Same story, size 4 with 4 improvements (in GOTM#2, actually )

I've also had a size 4 city given to me with 3-4 improvements. One time it was in a position that was just missing fish and a whale, and it was encroacing on a nearby city as well. That was a tough choice, but I think I ended up keeping it where it was.

The biggest I have ever gotten from a goody hut was a size 6 city, but I don't remember how many improvements there were!!
But I have also noticed that you get bigger cities if you wait long enough!!

I never get good stuff like all of the above.

I only ever get a size one. I vaguely remember getting a few with 'an' improvement inside.

Size 5, temple, marketplace. Total fluke, I usually get size 1/2.

I am so great! Gee, arr, ehh, tee! I am so great! Gee, arr, ehh, tee! I mean, my greatness is so obvious! It's all around us! Everywhere you look you will be stunned by my greatness. I can't believe how great I really am.

The biggest city I ever got was size 4. It had a temple, marketplace, granary. As an aside, whoever it was(oh, Lenin) that said they got a courthouse. . . no, I don't think so. You NEVER get a courthouse in any city that you capture or acquire. Even a bribed city loses its courthouse. It's the game's way of saying that different civs have different laws, so the old courthouse is worthless to the new civ. You CAN'T acquire a city with a courthouse. Period. Well, I never have anyway. And we all know that I'm just a god incarnate, so it has to be true. . .

I dunno. But it had a bunch of "primary" improvements.

I used to play large map, therefore there always are some un-openned huts in later of games. The later it is, the better/advanced the tribe is. I generally get size 3-4 of city, with something like temple, Marketplace, library, etc. don't remember saw anything higher than 5. Coz I generally don't play till that late.

I've often had size 3 or 4 with a few improvements, but never 5 or more. I usually play large map though so what sekong says applies.

I've never had a city on a desert though. Or Forest even.

If I wait to snag huts do I increase my chances at an advanced Civ?

Mar 28, 2001, 05:33 PM
It depends. If you have discovered all techs, yes (unless you can discover future techs in huts..?).

I don't think the probability changes throughout the game but I'm not sure though.

You can't get advances after invention. I love advanced tribes in mp. They give you an enormous advantage, even if they're in a crap position.

Mar 30, 2001, 01:28 PM
size 4, 3 improvements.
