    Hi everyone,
    Looked for this question in past threads, but I can’t seem to find it.
    I was wondering if anyone knew if you are able to play Civ 6 on a MacBook Air 2017?

    Any experience playing civ 6 on this computer is appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I do.

    I only play small size maps, quick or standard speed. I also turn off leader animations and some of the other more intensive graphic features like day/night cycling and shadows.

    I find it quite playable. I think the speed of the ssd drive helps make up for the lack of discrete graphics. The computer does get hot fast.

    I played most of a game on a 2015 MacBook. It was pretty slow, but playable. So it's probably better on an Air.

    Yes, I currently play on a MBA i7 2013. As well as the top end 27" 2011 iMac.
    As you have 8GB ram, that is sufficient.
    If you have an i7, it will run turns faster.

    I currently use the Enormous map mod, and production queue, along with a couple of others.
    Currently wondering when the Mac App Store version will get Rise and Fall.
