    1- is it possible to see all the achievements I've unlocked, sorted by unlock date (from the most recent)?

    2- I'm playing Hiawatha, and trying to unlock the "Longhouse people". I've built the longhouse in a city with 4 forests in its radius; well, the border actually included three of them, then expanded to include a fourth.
    Is it normal that the achievement wasn't unlocked?

    Maybe you weren't connected to Steam when you did it. Happens all the time to me. Or maybe it's just a bug.

    Well, you have to build the longhouse in a city with four forests in the border. As yours just had three, the achievment isn´t going to be unlocked.
    But you can sell the longhouse easily and build it another time now.

    You're correct; the forest has to be within the city's border to get the achievement.

    Sometimes the achievements do seem bugged though. I finished a game yesterday and after closing Civ I found that I'd earned the "He Threw a Car at My Head" achievement for having a city ransomed by Barbs. The only problem was that I've never had a a city ransomed by barbs. Oh well. Now if it would just get it to automatically give me the achievement for a Deity win. :mischief:

    The one that I got automatically was Suleiman's special achievement, the berber corsairs thing. I was playing as France and had at most sunk 3 barbarian ships :confused:

    Whew, glad to hear that this has happened to someone else. I was afraid that I play so badly they were giving me mercy achievements. :lol:

    This is a bug which should have been removed a long time ago. (There was once a sentence in the patch notes) You also got/get the achievements for actions the AI did.
    I got the Suleyman achievement so, too. :D

    I have not received the (3 wonders built in a city) and both me and the AI have done this. Is this related to DLC? If so which? Thanks.

    The Ancient Wonders DLC adds 3 wonders.

    I got Suleiman's achievement for nothing too.
    Also there is a bug in my Civ that does not allow me to unlock achievement "find New Zealand", I found it several times (games), even setteled it, but achivement does not unlock (all other achivements on the Pacific map were unlocked).
    I also got Germans achievement (10 barbs camps) while playing for Manchguria in Korea Scenario.

    The find New Zealand, Hawaii, and Australia maps have to do with the Polynesian scenario. When you load up the scenario, you can select the premade map or a random map. The premade map has Australia on it. I think the random maps have the large island to spam the UI for the win in different places and count "Hawaii" and "New Zealand" based on where it spawns. I not positive on the mechanic, but I know for certain that it has to do with playing the scenario and not a standard game on the Pacific map.

    You have to play on the random map. - I got these achievements about a week ago, so it certainly can be done. :)

    Not true... I got the New Zealand on the random map, and the Australia on the (scenario) Pacific map. So I assume it's possible on both, but I have reason to believe that both are not spawned every time.

    However, I've won with Tonga 3 times now, and have not got the achievement (despite getting the Australia one during one of the plays, so I was definitely connected to steam)!

    Probably you loaded the scenario with the mod menu. You have to do it from the single player menu.
    Edit: O, I haven´t read the thing with the Australia achievement. So that´s odd...

    On the other hand, I just painlessly garnered the achievements for winning on Large and Huge maps. I say "painlessly" because when I first tried these maps I became allergic to the words "Please Wait," so I tried an experiment. I chose my leader then I went into the advanced game setup and deleted all but one opposing civ. Turn times were manageable and I soon had both achievements. One thing; the vast empty spaces allowed dozens of Barb camps to proliferate. There were more barbarians then you'd see at a heavy metal concert. That made for a very interesting game. I enjoy playing Duel, Tiny, or Small on any map type, but Large and Huge with the regular setup just tried my patience way too much.

    There are definitely bugs in the achievements. When I first got the wonders of the world DLC it almost automatically gave me the achievement for sacrificing great people... Other times a month or more will go by before it realizes I've done something. I know from reading the release notes that there have been bugs in counting and awarding achievements.

    A lot of achievements are related to scenarios, which I used to never play. The Mongolian one has one for each level and so do a few others. I've been meaning to try all the scenarios but I just don't have much time to play...

    I wish the Domesday, Wonders of the Ancient World and Korean scenario achievements were set up like the Mongol scenario. Beating the scenario on Deity should grant you the achievements for the easier difficulty levels. The Wonders scenario is the worst, where you have to individually beat 5 difficulty levels (at least there are 5 civs, so you can overlap the two sets of achievements).

    Has anyone unlocked the Khaaan! achievement for the Mongol scenario? I played through the scenario, purposely not winning by turn 100. I got a Time VC (perhaps for the highest score) and the Khaaan! achievement was not unlocked.

    Well, steam achievement says that New zealand should be on the Pacific map (as well as Australia), and Hawaii and Easter Island should be on a random map... (at least so is stated in Russian, if there was no error in translation)

    Please read my message again, if I got other "Polynesia" achievements, than I should have played the scenario, isn't it obvious?))

    There is the problem. You mustn´t win the game - even not with the time victory. ;)
