Hello all, I just got C3C in the mail, I had played CIV 3 awhile ago when it first came out and quickly lost interest as some of the bugs and what I termed unrealistic changes to the game. I am serving in Afghanistan and saw the advertisement for C3C on the internet and figured it would be a great diversion when I am not working here (which isnt much time). It seemed that alot of the problems I had with the original game seemed to be addressed or so it said. Well after playing quite a bit of the time there are still alot of issues I have with the game. One of the biggest is the corruption, this hasnt seemed to change at all from the original game and I know this is a computer game but it should make an attempt to come as close to reality as possible. I can understand corruption being modeled in the game but to make it as devestating as it is is just ridiculous and completely unrealistic. It is really frustrating at having a great city placed as far as resources and seeing it is going to take you 60+ turns to build a granary. Also I dont know if this is a glitch or what but I am currently playing the earth scenario on a huge map, it is around the late 1880's I have a pretty modern naval fleet built up, there still are about 12 other civs including myself ( I am the Germans). Well it is pretty frustrating to see my Russian computer opponent with about 5 destroyers just annihilate my fleet. These super destroyers beat anything they have fought, they have destroyed three battleships, 2 carriers and the only battle I have won is when they have taken on another destoyer. When the battles took place each ship was undamaged each had the same experience level and yet every time I sortie a battleship out there, one destroyer will come along and knock it off, or for that matter any capital ship. This is ridiculous and I am hoping this is some sort of glitch. Anyone else have this sort of experience in this game?
