    Yes, this is a parellel to the thread in the Civ3 Section, and I think it's only fitting that there's one here. I'll start.


    1 - You wonder why cities aren't terraformed to have 2/3 hills and 1/3 grasslands

    2 - You bump your broken down car into your friend's (ally) car in hope that he will fix yours.

    When you read TF saying in Site Feedback that 'poly and CFC are "allies, not rivals" and then start to worry if you are adequately defended for when they sneak attack. Mind you, we have given one another quite a few units as gifts in the past. :)
