    that would be the best april fools day joke ever.

    release real info on the first, have everyone say it's not true due to releasing it on the first, then a week later say 'that was actually real'.

    :goodjob:

    Some of the features look great. But it's still not as good as the "Extreme diplomacy" mod and Sid Meier's Evolution. I still can't believe that SME was a joke:(

    considering that the collider would be a modern/future wonder, 2 scientists wouldn't be that big of a deal. i doubt we'd see something like that without an expanded future era, though.

    I wouldn't put the alleged "details" past 2k, there have been crazier games (arguably).

    I knew this was fake from the beginning, when I woke up this morning I said to myself to check civfanatics to see if their is an April Fools on it. It appears I was correct

    The Mech Godzilla is the only proof I need to know it's an April's fool joke... I mean, not even Shafer's heirs are able to create such a nonsense for real...

    That was a good one. Enough of it was plausible to get you to believe it:)

    The only thing for certain is that it is a joke. Thus every component is a joke. No Zulu for you!

    It is a CivFanatics joke and not a 2K Games joke.

    I was crying fowl at the sight of the Mecca Godzilla picture before I even read the article. so no egg on may face (some one should add an "egg on your face" smillie). Still good April Fools Thread. .

    The two units per tile and true globe sound like interesting Ideas though not very likely. the LHC and WDW sound believable so nice detraction their.

    i'd play a true start map almost exclusively if there were an official one available, but the millions of wrappings would only make sense with a bermuda triangle natural wonder.



    wait a minute...
