Damn.. apologies for the necro but sadly the download for this doesn't work anymore and @Matrix
has been away from CFC for a while now (EDIT: I PM'd him and he's come back and is going to look for it! Woot!). Anyone still have a copy of it somewhere? I have large file upload access to CFC and have been rescuing lots of old long lost mods
around the place so will do the same with this one if it resurfaces.
Sadly even Matrix's picture links above don't work anymore.. only surviving visual evidence of his terrain is over in @computerdude113
thread where they experimented with some units and cities
and you can see his retro grassland in the background.
Found another thread where @Sims2789
managed to make a whole Civ1 unit set for Civ3
(thankfully the download for that still works) which was the thing missing from Matrix's pack. So if Matrix's work is rescued it could be combined with Sims2789's units and Chieftess's city and we'd have the combined mod they all dreamed of all those years ago! The only thing missing would be rules and gameplay Civ1 feel but that matters less to me as I just like playing with all the visual stuff for fun. Although I can see that @Ville
made a Civ1 rulset for Civ3
years ago too which could be thrown in the combined stew pot too but sadly his download link is now missing for some reason. Can also see that @pdescobar
wanted to resurrect the Civ1 mod idea
way back then too but didn't get far.
Why would I try to find Matrix's terrain mod? Well a lot of the old mod rescues I'm doing are also for a Civ video series I'm making and I also recently worked on a Civ1 graphics mod for Civ2
. I will be doing a video on that and had the thought that I should look to see if there were Civ1 mods for later Civ games I could mention and sure enough there are! Problem is they're all missing now days lol.
