I'm back after an 8 year break :)
Instead of using the CD's i've decided to get the steam version and use that.
I have installed Buffy but when I loaded the mod it told me
Also, how do I get it to automatically load the mod when I start the game?
Have given up on Civ 5 after playing for 16 hours straight - hated it.
The reason is simple - only one unit is allowed on one tile, this led to frustration with the game and led to some interesting army maneuvers.
The game was hard enough without having to move units around for others to get...
I give it an F, there are too many things in it that totally destroy playability.
Using steam is a total pain when you don't have a permanent Internet connection and not allowing more than one unit on a tile leads to some very frustrating army maneuvers.
2 cases -
I was playing a game on high level when I created an army of 6 swordsman and 2 axeman - to which I went to invade a city on a hill with 2 archers.
End result = my army wiped out and the two archers had 0.1 and 0.2 hit points left :(
Another game I played was a competition so no...
I have just had a Baby (well, my wife has) and I really dont' have enough time to play as much as I like, but when I do play I like to have them qualify.
So, having Standard maps or bigger means a minimum playing time of about 4-6 hours, with a small map I can finish a game in about 1-2 hours...
Had a try with Romans; restarted about 15 times until I got Iron within 3 squares. Then I pretorian rushed (was pumping them out every 3rd turn) and managed to wipe out 3 opponents - but couldn't finish off the last :(
Ironically now the last opponent could settler spam and won a domination...
Found this while going through the morning news - the last sentence is the one that makes me laugh
"Apparently there are 290,798 children called Civilisation in China."
MONTY: This game, it irks me. The human player makes me suffer from Deja Pu with his constant reloading.
GHANDI : 'Deja Pu'? Don't u mean 'Deja Vu'?
MONTY : Nah - 'Deja Pu', same . .. .. .. . different reload
GHANDI : LOL
