DDPM - Don't DogPile Me...
TAPAM - They are plotting against me..
I couldn't help noticing that CDZ is wrongly accredited as Civ Dual Zone. It should read Civ Duel Zone [/nitpick]
ITAAS-I Think Acronyms Are Stupid
No such thing as a free lunch, a useful lesson in Civ. Work those food tiles! Don't let them sit there!
Actually, that many decades old acronym is TANSTAAFL "There ain't no such thing as a free lunch". (Nit picking mode)
A mash unit is a super medic, usually a (weak) unit that gets a GG attached so it can take Medic3.
I see FIDL used in a lot of reports (founded in a distant land)
Why isn't this stickied?
You missed a Great unit...
GA (Great Artist). So GA should read: GA: Golden Age OR Great Artist.
It makes it slightly annoying, when you read something along the lines of "I don't use many GP to start a GA, but I often use GA to start a GA." (<--- Real comment on this forum, but I dunno where it is...)
[Edit]Hang on... you missed all the Great People
GA = Great Artist
GS = Great Scientist OR Great Spy
GM = Great Merchant
GP = Great Prophet
GE = Great Engineer[/Edit]
Great Spy = GSpy
And I rarely have trouble distinguishing GA as an Artist or Age... You just gotta think while reading
SMAC: Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, SMG!:Sid Meier's Gettysburg! SMR: Sid Meier's Railroads!
Someone needs to come up with something short for food/hammers production for workers/settlers.
I'm very surprised one of the prettiest abbreviations isn't named yet:
WHEOOHRN : We have enough on our hands right now
As in "he's gone WHEOOHRN" : Better watch out as that AI is going to attack someone/me
And you spent the time and effort to point that out because...?
I've seen several others not mentioned prior
PARCS = (Representation, Caste System, Pacificism)
PSE = Pure Specialist Economy
GL/GLH = Great Lighthouse
WC = War Chariot
ESB, which meaning just insiders can grasp.
