    I actually started working on this easter eggs page for quiet a while but didn't get to finish it until now.

    The page lists all the known easter eggs in Civ3. Some have screenshots.

    Take a look:

    http://www.civfanatics.com/civ3/easter_eggs.php

    if you know some easter eggs not listed, you can post there and I'll add them.

    I still say the cityscape behind modern Alexander looks suspiciously like downtown Tucson.

    Found it in the editor help for conquest (might be for others) there is a subject called Notyoueither and when you open it up all it says is "the beer was great thanks"

    It's quite, not quiet! :mad: ;)

    Great list Thunderfall! Although the "lol" easter egg didn't come out in Civ III, it came out in PTW, because Carthage was not introduced until PTW. :mischief:

    :lol: notyoueither is an Apolyton poster!

    About Lol, in fact Iol, i've found this on the web, It was a trade place in Phrygia (Turkey) founded by the Carthaginians :
    "Archaeology Wordsmith - [ Traduire cette page ]
    DEFINITION: An ancient city of Phrygia near the Orontes River and modern Yalvaç
    in Turkey. ... Iol was originally founded as a Carthaginian trading station, ...

    The last English city (The Mumbles) was the home of Catherine Zeta Jones. Don't know if this is an Easter egg as such, but The Mumbles certainly isn't a major English city (Its not even English)

    Just an FYI: NYE was a beta tester for Conquests - and enjoyed a good relationship with the developers - hence the Easter Egg. ;)

    I still see quiet on the front page. :mischief:

    (I can't believe we're actually getting away with policing the admin's spelling. :lol: )

    oops! I didn't notice that part. What I did was change that easter egg from Civ3 to PTW.

    I should thank RegentMan the spelling police for pointing it out. :D That was probably not the first time I made that "quiet" mistake. :blush:

    I'm just surprised that I can still post here! ;)

    I hope my post didn't come off as rude, because that was not my intent.

    Carrots is a reference to Real Genius where Professor Hathaway tells young Mitch that 'Compared to you, most people have the IQ of a carrot.'

    I emailed Firaxis to see if there are some easter eggs not on the list and Mike Breitkreutz replied back with lots of interesting info. :)

    The civ3 easter eggs page is now updated with this info.
    http://www.civfanatics.com/civ3/easter_eggs.php

    Thanks to MikeB for those great info! :goodjob:

    I'm pretty sure the carrot remark was made to Mitch. Not that it matters. Good movie....

    Hmmm...need to go put one of the lines in that movie into my sig now....
