I recently discovered my civ3 discs and reinstalled them onto my w7 laptop. I missed Civ3 more than I thought. So i decided to try to get back into civ3 before i get back to the US and get a copy of civ5 (as an aside i didn't like civ4 so i'm a little hesitant about civ5--anyone got an opinion?) Going to start this series simply before moving on to other variants/options. Decided to start at monarch to give lower players a chance to join in. anyway........going to start a little series of open succession games, to improve my overall game play and to have a little fun. Open succession means anyone to takes it plays its. First player gets 20 turns, everyone else 10 turns. Since my openings still need a little work, I'm leaving the opening to someone else. BB-01 is fast space race..... MAP STATS all random CIV STATS level: Monarch all else random All victory conditions are enabled, but we are going to the stars!!! I want to learn how to push a tech pace, and really learn how to prebuild to get there as fast as possible. save, opening screen shot, and roster/interested players in the next post.
