Discussion in 'Civ3 - Creation & Customization' started by Kyriakos, Sep 13, 2014.
Thank Heavens indeed! Although, I'd probably be angrier about the 3 AM phone calls myself ...
Indeed. Stay safe, Steph
Since I've lost the stuff I've taken with me to work on my NTW mod, maybe I'll use the week end time to write down some ideas for "indie civ".
I'm not sure I'll have that much time since I need to redo some of the stuff for work I lost at the same time. But if I'm too bored with work, I'll change my mind with the game.
TO everyone interested by the project:
Create an account. Then give me your account ID and I will add you to the project.
We can have a forum, a wiki, file repository and task management.
you can add me
user id: GeneralJCL
Didn't know there was a hosted redmine provider.
you can add me

PiotrG, I found two.
Piotr Gawlik and Piotr Gryc. Which is the correct one?
For future, please give also the first name/last name, that's what I see when adding members, it's better to see this and the ID
Piotr Gryc is correct
Just noting that i will sign up these days (have to be looking for a new place to rent currently ).
I encourage you to sign up and speak on https://www.hostedredmine.com/
Reminder: signing in is not sufficient, give your ID then so I can add you as members of the group
So, almost one month later. Only two registered, and only one contribute actively.
What should we conclude?
Obvious: nobody really want it...
The idea crossed my mind too
For the site itself, I have some privacy questions, particularly whether it's easy to hide your e-mail and first/last name after signing up. Taking a look at some random projects and their members, it looks like the e-mails are publicly displayed, and that's something undesirable to me currently as I'd like to keep a fairly low profile and not make it too easy for someone searching my e-mail to link it with my recreational online life, including CFC. Over the holidays I may upgrade my e-mail so I have an alias e-mail to sign up with, but that's what stopped me from submitting the sign-up form when I went to do so in November.
But it's true that that's only a temporary roadblock, and if I'd been really gung-ho (and likely the same for others), I'd have worked around that upfront or the next day. I suspect the fact that all the leading candidates to be involved have professed "interested, but not available for at least a few months" is a contributing factor, and I include myself in this as I know any contribution I could make would be minor in the near future.
And general-jcl's at least somewhat correct, too, I'm afraid. For all of us still at C&C who were here five years ago, at least one other has left, and the average time played for those remaining is probably lower than in 2009. Civ3's still my most-played game of all time, but it's definitely not in the top 5 for 2014, and might not be in the top 10, either. We discussed earlier how a clone wasn't very interesting; between the lines in that is that a near-clone isn't a whole lot more interesting, and we're still kind of at the near-clone point. At this point, I'm more interested in something like Jon Shafer's At the Gates, which clearly shares some elements but looks to have some very distinct mechanics as well, than something "like Civ3", no matter who's behind it. The concept is good, it's just something I've already played... a lot.
Actually, if you register and see the first discussions, you can see that we are not really at the "near-clone" point
Well don't ruin the atmosphere
I had no web connection all this time (only got it again today). I am of the view we should rather have a sub-forum here, though, cause people tend to click on different parts of the same site more often/regularly than different sites
