    It needs to have a single-user mode. I will not play multi-user. I won't torment my friends with Civ-related updates.
    "Your friend Sid needs your help to Build The Leaning Tower of Pisa."
    "Your friend Sid needs your help to Cancel Trade Agreements with Soren(Vikings)."

    And, this better be really, really cool. Not much in Facebook gaming is really appealing now. You can't shoot yourself in the foot and expect to drive paying customers to Civ5.

    Don't be a stranger. Toss us a bone with a message or two on the boards.

    Besides, that this anouncement is also advertisement, i think, that this is also good community work :goodjob:.

    One of the best posts in this thread .



    I think, this project will be somehow interesting...but no idea, if the result will be good. If anybody can create a complex game on a social networking plattform, thant it's sure Firaxis. The only question is, if it's really playable and fun.
    I hope, that it will be, but i don't expect it.

    I love Civ 4: BTS, and hope Civilization 5 comes out for the PC, and if not, at least the PS3, cause I may never own an Xbox 360.

    Awh what?!

    Facebook seriously sucks though - Bebo is far superior! Dammit! Now I have to get a freaking face book account!

    Sid + Facebook = Face book gets some more members and Sid gets more money... Sigh*

    Bebo's horrible! I saw it once, because my friend saw that he could do one story line in a Facebook app, but he wanted two, saw it was on Bebo, and got a Bebo. The next day he deleted it because it sucked!

    I think Sidy boy chose Facebook because on average,

    The membership in Facebook is much older than the membership on bebo. However, one thing Sidy didn't take into account is that bebo has a lot (I mean a ton) of gaming teens who would eat up this new proposal like it was Mama's Sunday fried Chicken!! :)!

    ^He didn't post on the welcome forum yet :( Yes, I know that doesn't mean anything, but it's a tradition! Although my "Hey y'all :band:" post will have to be a lot bigger if/when he posts on that forum

    I don't really have that much faith anymore after the train-wreck that was Civilization IV: Colonization. I was all looking forward to this and then found out how bad it actually was. Please after Civilization V, revisit Colonization and this time do a proper sequel please Mr Sid Meiers. I hate to sound ungrateful but what was released was not Colonization. It was just a cheap rip-off which annoyed a lot of people who had played the original. I reckon a proper sequel would be able to sell a lot of copies. Civilization IV: Colonization was just a scenario being sold as a standalone game.

    It is true that Colonization should have been Colonization II, not Civ IV Colonization, but I think it was more of a mod than a scenario. It has too much stuff. What I want to see is the squeal to Sid Meier's Pirates! :thumbsup:

    Have you tried those games? They suck. I'm not saying a civ facebook game will suck but... well what's the objective going to be? To just always be more advance than your opponents? How would you do that, seeing as eventually the whole tech tree will be researched right? It sounds like just a waste of time on facebook imo, which is fine if you're into that I guess. I'll wait for civ5.
