Seems close to the achievement structure CivRev used: some freebies (build a second city), some that you can get with a bit of work (win as every civ), and some that will take real effort (win as Alexander by 350BC). Seems like there are a few that take some new/specific strategies, which is exactly what I hoped to see out of them - an impetus for players to go outside their standard gameplay and try a new way of Civ (warmongers building, builders warmongering).

I'd also like to express my astonishment that I made it into this thread before any "achievements are killing gaming, Civ, and the environment!" posts.

Sep 13, 2010, 03:36 PM
A fun list. :)

Some very simple ones, so just about anyone gets a few achievements the first time they play. (Think free sample from the drug dealer...got to hook 'em when they're young!)

Then a nice selection of achievements for different leaders, map types, map sizes, victory types, social policy trees, unit types, etc. Always nice to have some incentive to explore all of the game.

Next are some cumulative achievements -- doing something a certain number of times across all games played.

Finally some fun items specific to particular civs and actions. Racking up all of these is likely to take some serious play time.

Looks like a good list. I enjoy Steam achievements for other games, and this will add a little bit of fun for those who want it. And you don't have to care about them if you don't want to.

Suggests that we're back to early civ implementation of barbarians; rather than capturing the city or razing it, they just take gold.

that's a lot of stuff to do, given the lack of campaign, at least achievements give motivation to try other stuff and even actually finish games, something I really struggled to do in CivIV/FFH2

EDIT: Apologies, as there was no link in the thread and the poster wasn't a "known source" of information, I assumed it was just another speculation thread and I made some up. Very sorry about the whole confusion.

I can't confirm that either, but I don't think they exist as there are two different achievements who share the same name "God Is Great". And I believe the OP's version of that achievement is correct!

they are their just for "bragging" rights and personal satisfaction ... and is good for an excuse to play a game not on your usual settings

I am willing to bet that it's not mathematically impossible for a spearman to beat a tank.

Also, Firaxis/2K are seriously going to have to think about putting warnings about addiction to video games if they don't want to end up getting sued.

You would think that uber experienced spearman with 10 hit points in a Citadel vs a 1 point tank would give the spearman a chance.

Maybe they special case it...
While ((attacker == tank AND defender== spearman) AND Combatresult() == attackerwon)
{

I reckon, if someone is bored, they should categorise the achievements into the following categories:

Trivial (will almost definitely happen just by playing the game, no effort necessary e.g. build a second city :lol:)
Simple (not difficult at all to achieve - e.g. winning with a given leader, or any of the achievements that would be pretty easy on settler difficulty)
Determined (requires a fairly directed effort to achieve, but not really all that difficult e.g. Switch between two mutually exclusive SP trees 3 times in one game)
Endurance (or should it be called Addiction? :)) (ones that require a big time investment more than anything else - e.g. build 1000 temples)
Difficult (even on low difficulties these might be difficult e.g. Win a domination victory without losing a single unit)
Insane (near impossible - e.g. beat a tank with a spearman)

Of course, other categories or definitions are possible - these are just my suggestions. :)

Beat tank with spearman: Find out the chances of a fully promoted healthy (or Japanese) spearman against 1HP tank (e.g. 1000:1). Arrange such a fight 1000 times and hope. It's either actually impossible or it belongs in the "endurance" category if you ask me :lol:

They're basically just goals that show up in your Steam account's profile. You can link your friends to it to show them how manly and intelligent you are. It's all done automatically so you're free to sit back and gloat.

Other than that they don't do anything.

Really, the main objective of achievements should be to get you to attempt challenges you wouldn't normally, which allows players (some players, anyway) to get more out of the game.

Not on the current Steam list. It's possible some of the secret achievements are specific to these civs. Steam says there are 120 achievements, but there are only 103 in the list.

Also, the manual (page 6) says new achievements will become available with some DLC. So there may be more achievements associated with Babylon available.

Aye, they do have the basic "beat the game" achievements.

I was thinking of the additional civ specific challenges such as:

Conquest of the World
As Alexander, defeat every known player by 350 BC.

Bollywood
As Gandhi, win a cultural victory with 3 or fewer cities in your empire.


I assumed that was what moysturfurmer was asking about. Every other civ except Siam, Songhai, and Persia have such achievements.

Achievements are for some people and they not for others. Some players are motivated to complete them all and it brings a sense of accomplishment when all of them are completed. Also it extends the life of the game for some players since they want to try and complete all challenges.

For others, it means nothing. If it means nothing to you, no worries. I know I am going to work on them, though I probably won't be able to complete them all.

I really like the challenges at the end of the list. The first two-thirds or so were basic and mundane, easy to complete over time, but the later ones were creative and give people new goals and objectives to complete.

I think achievements are a bit bugged. I beat the game as Greece an didn't get the achievement but I did get one for winning as Askia. It might be because my Internet cut out mid-game (game still worked though). For some reason my Steam community page only sees 64 achievements instead of 120 so maybe I didn't get the Greece one because it's one of the missing achievements.

Steam says 0.1% of people got the achievement, so somebody got it to trigger.

That's a weird number. My idea was that maybe it had to be on an Earth map, but I feel like a lot more people would have gotten it in that case. More than one in 20 people who win an Earth game must explore all the way around.

Actually, where are you seeing values with decimal points? Where I'm looking it just says 0%.

It used to say 0.1%, it now says 0%.

Maybe someone at Firaxis had it unlocked for testing, but more people registering the game caused the 0.1% to round down to 0%...

...only .1% of all players have let the barbarians get one of their cities.

hehe, I wanted the achievement so I setup a game with standard map, 1 opponent (ghandi), raging barbarians and built a couple cities near barbarian camps, then just sat back and waited. Took them like 40 turns of just circling my cities before they actually took one. Oh well, with no units, it didn't take long between hitting end turn... :)

...more people registering the game caused the 0.1% to round down to 0%...

That seems reasonable. I unlocked To Stand the Test of Time on Wednesday, it was like the first thing I did to get a feel for the game, explore each victory condition. It sat at 0% for the first few days, but now it's slowly creeping up 0.2%.

There would seem to be more achievements that are bugged than just Magellan. An obvious one from looking at the list of regular achievements is Tomb Raider. For it to still be at 0% that means that less than 1 in 1000 has conquered an Egyptian city that had their UB temple replacement - doesn't seem very likely.

I started another thread to track the hidden achievements link (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=383340) and it would seem that either the only available source of the descriptions is wrong, or they are really bugged.

I've been wanting access to these stats since I first saw the list of achievements :) When I found that log file a few days ago, I started hunting around for a way to get it to update. Dreamer over on the 2k forums posted a reply to me that his was updating, and we isolated it to this setting.

One thing I've noticed with that log file is that it's contents only update when the game first loads even though the file's timestamp will show the time you exited the game.

Basically, if you exit the game and look at the log it won't include any stats accumulated during your last session. You have to launch the game again, then quit to desktop right away to have it include stats from your last session.

About the achievement that asks you to build every unit possible, apart from unique units, anybody knows if you have to build the same unit with every civilization (egyptian horseman, japanese horseman, etc) or just once?

The log file mentioned above tracks each basic unit type and each unique unit. So the answer seems to be that no, you don't need to build basic units with each civ.

However, like others on the hidden achievement thread, I have been unable to get credit for building any Lancer units (Sipahi is credited) so I can't confirm what needs to be done to get the Model of a Modern Major-General achievement.

EDIT: Some quick testing revealed the following:
- Building or buying a unique both give credit.
- Upgrading does not count.
- You can quit immediately after the unit is completed to get credit, you do not need to end turn or save.
- Mods, at least some of them, do not stop you getting credit.

Neighborhood bully you have to free a puppet state from another civ then annex it after it's been released.

Sink 357 units as England wasn't all that hard I did it on island map prince level dual civs,think it took 3 or 4 play throughs camping barb camps with naval units.

I figured as much. I've only had two barbs attack my city before, and it was the same turn that both of them did it. They need to increase this if you ask me, Ive beat the game on every level, and only saw the attack that one time on prince.

Also do they really ask for ransom? Or do you just have to take the city back? And do they build anything?

Actually I'm not quite sure what happened,they were attacking the city, health dropped too nothing the city flashed a second the achievement came up and that was about it.I wasn't really watching closely so they may have deducted gold directly from my account.

A few tidbits I discovered myself:

For the "God is Great (1000 temples)" achievement:
If you start a game in the modern era or later every city you found gets credit for THREE temples.
For example, I began a game with 638, founded 3 cities, left, and had credit for 647

For the "Panzer Shafernator General" achievement (100 great generals, ... )"
This is only the generals won by completing a battle. You can't simply fill out the first first civic in the Honor tree.

For the "49er" (1000 mines) achievement:
Founding a city on a resource which is located on a hill, gives you credit for 1 mine.

For the "Appian Way" achievement:
Railroads do NOT count as roads

For the British Navy achievement (sink 357 ships):
You don't have to sink them with other ships. Guided missiles, stealth bombers, etc... all give you credit. I recommend a ton of destroyers, and a few carriers with stealth bombers to clean up the map REAL quick.

Gotcha. ;)

I'm trying to combine achievements and playing for a challenge. So, each game I play as a different leader, on a different difficulty level, map size, map type, etc. In my 4 games I've won with 4 leaders, done the first 4 difficulty levels, all 4 map types, 4 map sizes and 3 victory conditions.

I tried to get the loss for MP, but even though I DOW and stuck my only settler next to an infantry unit, they did not attack.

So I deleted the settler and lost, but it did not record.

The win recorded just fine for MP.

Yeah, I've got 104 - all yours plus "Last Man Standing". Don't think there are any others I can get until they finish fixing the game.

Just got last man standing. I was having trouble syncing up and joining the game so I just started a game with AI and crushed it :lol:

Max 104

Someone should start a thread in the Bugs forum about the 15/16 achievements that are bugged.

At this point we don't know whether Six Degrees to Sid is bugged or not. Most likely it hasn't started yet. I'd assume that there would be some publicity surrounding it. But, nobody has reported getting the others. I believe that Magellan is listed as a confirmed bug right now, but it should probably roll into to a master bugged thread.

Actually, this one's pretty easy; you only have to conquer the known world by 350 BC, so once you take out your own continent, you're set. On the small map, I had two of the five opponents on my continent, and took them out in time without too much difficulty (largely thanks to a goody hut giving me a UU very early)

Or you just complete the War tutorial. :p

Here is my final list of broken or unfathomable achievements.

"Hundred Years War" Another I haven't tried personally but there doesn't seem to be a counter in the log for this.
"Cat Fight"Tried this many times never unlocks.
"Manifest Destiny" tried to get this one a few times never seems to work.
"I Have the Power" Have had many units win 20 fights never unlocked.
"Model of a Modern Major-General"Lancers and lancer replacement UU don't seem to register on the log
All for All Super Brawl Have every Civ declare war on you at the same time.
"Can't We All Just Get Along?"I've done a few games with no wars and never unlocked.
Inconceivable! Lose a Game to someone not on your friend's list.
Six Degrees to Sid
"Diplomat" Ditto
"Knowledge Is Good" haven't tried reports of broken.
"The Elephant Battle" Tried this against different UU never seems to work.
"Tomb Raider" Many times taking over the Egyptians never seems to work.
"War Canoe Attack" Not sure if I've tried this yet or not myself but have read many have and no joy.
"The Paul Murphy Award for Excellence and Attractiveness" log doesn't seem to keep track of civolopedia entries read.
"Panzer "Shafernator" General Spawn over 100 Great Generals, build an army of over 100 standing units, and beat the game 100 times.

The 13 starting with qoutes are all confired as broken. The three others I have no idea what is needed for them, but they are probably broken as well as no one has claimed to have done them.

The other 104 all work.

Aeson
Nov 09, 2010, 03:21 AM
He was not a coding when Civ3 came out as we played together in some Poly games. I think he did work on PTW and for sure Civ4.

The notice was the article he wrote "everything you want to know about corruption" for C3C.

Alexman was employed at Firaxis during Civ4 development, and may have even been one of the leads on BtS, I'm not sure. That achievement seems very weird to say the least. He deserves better than Warlord.

Nov 09, 2010, 06:34 AM
Good to see you post Aeson. I still remember your invasion getting lava dropped on it all those years ago, even more than the so very cold game. Yeah I knew he was involved in IV, but he said he had access to the C3C code for the article on corruption. I guess that could have been after the release.

I just remember some of those old Poly AU games, well not real good on the remembering any more. Do you recall the PTW demo game, what an super invasion that was with the whole thing hinged on a transport sinking a battleship to clear the way.

Some fine work by you and Deepo in that game. It took nearly 2 years to play.

This is probably a silly question but.. how do I unlock and access these achievements? This is like PS3 trophies I guess, right? I have certainly done some of them but never seen any pop up or anything of the sort in my games to indicate I did.

Nov 11, 2010, 10:10 PM
You have to be connected to Steam for them to record. If you play offline, they are not marked as achieved.

Alan McG
Nov 12, 2010, 12:03 AM
Ok, thanks. I think I have possibly played online several times but never noticed anything. I assume you are ‘online’ if you have an internet connection, right?

What happens when you are online and fulfill one of the conditions? Is there a pop up or something to signal it?

What if you start offline and then go online?

I realise these must be quite basic questions, apologies.

MouseyPounds
Nov 12, 2010, 12:13 AM
Online does mean an active internet connection and being logged in to the Steam client. If you are online and get an achievement, there's a small popup that shows briefly at the lower-left of the screen. You can also see the most recent achievement earned on the Steam overlay screen that you can activate via Shift-Tab.

I have no idea on starting offline and then going online but I assume that it wouldn't matter for some achievements (e.g. winning with a certain leader you probably only need to be connected on the turn you win) but probably does matter for those that are counter-based (e.g. the 1000 roads.)

Nice find! Here are the descriptions for those which have them (taken from the xml version of my own stats (http://steamcommunity.com/id/mouseypounds/stats/CivV?xml=1)):

By the Waters of Babylon - Beat the game on any difficultly setting as Nebuchadnezzar II.
The Golden Horde - Beat the game on any difficultly setting as Genghis Khan.
Khan - Beat the Mongol scenario on any difficulty.
Great Khan - Beat the Mongol scenario on the King or harder difficulty level.
Supreme Khan - Beat the Mongol scenario on the Emperor or harder difficulty level.
Kublai Khan - Beat the Mongol scenario on the Immortal or harder difficulty level.
Genghis Khan - Beat the Mongol scenario on the Deity difficulty level.
Khaaan! - Run out of time to beat the Mongol scenario.

The ones with placeholder names unsurprisingly also have placeholder descriptions. :p

EDIT: But I noticed that on the global page 2 of the placeholders do have actual icons which look like the other "win with leader X" icons. Perhaps these will be for the next 2 DLC civs? If so it looks like a female European leader (Spain?) and male Native American are on the way....

Vanilla 18 probably, as the description distinctly states "base leaders", IIRC...



A bit sad to see Firaxis add new achievements without fixing the bugged ones. I guess they have their schedule of releases to follow and don't care about fixing the previous releases.... :(
