So I guess there's an upside for all those archaeology enthusiasts out there.
Wow, I go to bed early, have a busy morning, check steamdb (nothing of note), pop over here, and find over 100 new posts in this thread? Nice job, CivFanatics!
I'd happily receive it as a gift from my husband . But if it's released on Valentine's day, I'll likely have preordered it long before he gets around to figuring out a Valentine's gift....
(I would caution against giving it as a gift to a significant other who has less than several hundred hours in the game already.)
I hope 2k doesn't have enough demographic data on us to assess how many of us will be lonely on Valentine's.
And I really hope that if they do, that wasn't the reason for deciding to launch sales of the game then!
See, I covered that off with my careful wording of "if you're wondering …". If your significant other already has that much time in, you should know this is a good Valentine's gift.
But, uh, even then, don't make it the whole gift.
If that would be the case, it would be a useless district since it looks like a very late game thing.
The dome could be a building though.
Maybe, but my wife wants to call her Morgane. I dread the day she will ask for a little brother...
Name him Pompeii!
And when they'll want to have a puppy/cat/pony/whatever, they can call it Herculaneum
Hours played might give them an idea...
Meanwhile, in real life, the compat branch just updated for the first time since late September.
What is this compat branch? Just curious, since I'm not exactly familiar with this update terminology.
Looking back at how "BoomGoesTheDynamite" was a name for a depot recently, and we thought the unusual name could have been aimed at us, I wonder will we see more unusually named depots now that the secret of the second expansion is supposedly out.
Here's a link to the Wiki page for Hongi Hika.
Looking at the depictions of him on the page, it seems like this is the most similar to the leaked Polynesian leader concept art. The pendant on the necklace, the skirt, and the fur on his shoulders. No facial tattoos, but perhaps Firaxis thought they were too hard to animate, or would offend Maori people. Or they could be adding them later.
He also looks a bit like the New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison, who is of Maori descent.
No idea, really. It has the same depots as the 2kqa branches (including the mysterious DepotTest); it's not weird like ltest. Would guess it's to provide a preview/test version to a different group of people than the usual testers.
I got confused. Are the Steam DB updates speculated to solely be the expansion, or is a patch speculated too?
I wonder if the Maori guy might be Kupe? Firaxis have done semi-mythological historical figures before.
I mean, I could imagine a "pre-patch" similar to the pre-R&F religion revamp-patch.
I would expect one as well. For what it's worth, that final update before R&F dropped on Oct. 19.
If they have a historical leader for the Civ that fits, I expect they'll go that route instead. So if they go Maori, I expect a real person. If they go Easter Island though …
I prefer the puppy/cat/pony/whatever in this case as Herculaneum is much better the Pompeii; more well preserved. However the one thing you can't deny about Pompeii is the shear scale of the ruins...
Separate names with a comma.
