    I just thought of this...

    You know how Catherine the Great hits on you? What if you played as a woman? Wouldn't that be cool.

    Now Boudica and Catherine... that would be awesome. :drool:

    MadmanOfALeader,

    Many people have speculated that Catherine wasn't nearly as promiscuous as she was made out to be in history (and CivIV). They think that people (mostly her enemies) spread false rumours in an attempt to discredit her any way possible.

    I realize that, but still...

    ...it's nice to know you can make her a lesbian.

    You know you play too much civ4 when.............you start fantasising about lesbian AI's instead of exploring the 'ahem' internet.

    Sorry, but Cathy was designed to appeal to 12 year old boys. Cathy hitting on me is amusing, but it hardly keeps me up at night.
    The two of them hitting on you? I guess it might be flattering. (But they're still just a collection of pixels controlled by a computer program. You know that, right? ;))

    If you meant the two of them together, (Lemon rolls her eyes - Yup. Just don't get it.), you've been reading far too much Hustler and need a more constructive hobby. :p

    Catherine was notable less because of her promiscuity than for her aptitude for combining sex and statecraft. She usually remained on excellent terms with her ex-lovers after the romance was over, and often elevated them into positions in which they remained useful allies.

    I'm fine with this being played for cheap laughs... civ4 is consistently cheesy when it comes to diplomacy text.

    I'm not sure whether Catherine had a thing for women, but she wouldn't be the only leader with homosexual tendencies in the game. Julius Caesar, Alexander and Frederick come to mind, although scholars aren't 100% sure in the latter case and he was so reserved when it came to his love life that any come-ons in the game would feel a little off anyway.

    When I learned something about mankind, then the fact that in every man there is a bit of a 12-year old boy :lol:

    Being the Princes of cheap laughs, I am inclined to agree. :lol:
    Goodness. The fact that I mocked the OP doesn't discourage this sort of thing? :rolleyes:

    You guys really need to get lives. :lol:

    you know, Catherine is Civ 4 was not as good looking as Catherine in Civ Rev. But she still is an improvement over Civ 3 Catherine. But come one, if you're really fantasizing about Catherine and Boudica, you might as well look up porn. It's the same thing with people who do those nude mods in Oblivion (bastards).

    We are guys so its impossible. I don't care if the sexiest woman or ugliest woman is walking down the street, the 1st thing you always think of is T & A - it's absolutely unavoidable.

    So keep that in mind the next time you see any guy over the age of 12 - even if he's your best friend because he is doing that every single time he sees you =D.

    Matter of fact, here is my GFs current favorite web site which tells the difference between boys and girls!:

    Please, speak for yourself. Most guys over the age of 20 would laugh at that statement.

    I'm speaking words of truth, not random words or ingenuine sincerity. I was born in 1972 and will be 37 this year and am speaking from life experience, not just my own random thoughts. If you don't fall into the category you are the minority. Of course, most people wanna seem politically correct and could care less about being "real" so I'd guess more people might piggy back your comment.

    That's the real issue in many things huh? Sorting out the Liars.

    Edit:

    Did you even check out my GFs favorite link!? It might look like a joke but its actually 100% accurate.
