My Brother and I have always loved the Civ games, Now I am on the west coast and he is in Atlanta,
Can Civ III for Mac, play over a Internet Connection (DSL to DSL),
Also can we play against just each other or do you have to play through the web in those big multiplayer games.
Thanks in Advance,
I tweaked your thread title a bit - titles are supposed to be "descriptive". ;) --Padma

Thanks, I saw an article in a magazine about a bar in chicago that has a weds night all you can eat bacon (yes baskets of bacon) and pabst blue ribbon, it's sound like it'd be fun to do once...
if it ever comes out on mac will I need the Civ III and the expansion, of just the expansion,
Can you play the expansion as one person or is it exclusively multiplayer..

You need both civ 3 and PTW installed too play. You can play the expansion single player as well.
(you wouldn't find me anywere near that bar :D)

Any word when they might put out the mac version?
Do you need 2 sets of each program or can you just install it on each machine?

considering the new conquest expansion will have all that PTW has, likely never.
You need to have the disk on each machine when you play multi player.

so is there mac way to play it multiplayer, what is the conquest expansion?
Jul 26, 2003, 02:14 PM
Conquests expansion is the newest expansion. It will be out on PC in October, and a Mac version hasn't even been announced.
Until either Conquests or PTW comes out for Mac, there is no way to play multiplayer on a mac.

snape, you can play Succession Games (SGs) and Open Succession Games (OSGs) w/ PC'ers if you upgrade to the mac beta 1.29_2 patch.
