    I will edit these posts to keep them up to date and add content. Would it be possible for the moderator here to make the post a stick and if possible edit the post title so that it is all in capital letters. For some reason despite typing it in capitals it seems to convert it into lower case.

    I will keep this post as a spare in case we have any other ideas.

    @ McMonkey:

    I made it a sticky. I did however removed one link in your post. You know which one. I tried to change the title in capitals but could only do it with the first word. Don't know why the other words change back to lower case.

    :blush: Sorry. I forgot to remove that link.

    I hope this information will be useful to members here and will help to increase traffic in all the Civ2 sites.

    It appears unfortunately that Patient English's old website is now offline. Does anyone know of a location where I could find some of John's scenarios? Specifically Colonies IV?

    Some of @McMonkey 's links are dead now as the sites are gone however fortunately in most cases there's a working backup of each website at web archive and even in some cases the downloads are backed up too which is good. I don't know what site was deleted by Magic_Gorter but I'm guessing it might have been the erm.. 'F Gov' mod site I keep coming across so I'll leave that out. If I accidentally relist some other Civ2 site considered culturally inappropriate by the community let me know and I'll get it out of here!

    While doing my scenario search & rescue project and Civ video series prep work I've located quite a few old Civ2 scenario repositories! Using similar research and hunting techniques I've used over the years when tributing long lost libraries of fan games/mods for my retro gaming website Blake's Sanctum I've used link lists on surviving sites to collect old addresses to paste into webarchive, each time I found a backup of a long lost site I'd then visit it's own links section to find even more long lost site links to paste into the archive search. It takes days but leads to huge results! The larger sites (in particular any Apolyton hosted ones) seem to have good backups with working downloads still, presumably due to someone manually backing them up to webarchive. Whereas the smaller sites often don't have working downloads due to the bot crawler only backing up small stuff. However the smaller sites are still useful as they often contain useful info, strategy guides and custom Civ2 graphic files that were more likely to get backed up than the scenarios due to their smaller file size. This was actually quite fun to make as visiting these sites is like stepping into a time machine to the late 90s! :)

    NOTE: This search is still in progress so this list will get bigger and bigger until I take this note off!

    Large repositories:
    Small repositories (often a modders homepage):
    Forums containing scenario files & links:
    These are all the repositories/sources I know of that I've been using for rescue efforts and video tribute work (please let me know if there's any other good dead or alive Civ2 scenario site/sources missing). Obviously there's quite a bit of crossover and duplication between them but many tend to have something the others don't.

    Other Civilization 2 sites (no scenarios):
    If you know of a great of Civ2 related page missing from here let me know! :)

    Cheers mate, have stuck it in the list! :) Which reminds me, I still have a PC Gamer UK magazine Demo disc I got in 1997 which had a huge collection of scenarios and maps on it. I'll have to upload them to CFC in the near future!

    I've also been contacted privately by several people who have done their own big Civ2 scenario and website links collecting over the years and have given me their lists, plus I'm not even near finished with my own searches yet so there's still a lot more to come to the above list! :)
