    I wouldn't want to use a mod. Standard Civ all the way.

    I agree - standard Civ. Better to use the settings that most everybody understands.

    PTW has a couple of problems besides the cost. First, it corrupts operating systems; I'm pretty sure it wasn't the only one having to re-boot between and during Turn Chats. Second, it contains a number of freak units (sipahis, berserkers) that we can do do well enough without.

    By whom? Aircraft could use it, definitely, but definitely not artillery. Warps the game system to the breaking point. Guns can hurt any unit, but they can't destroy them in general combat. That's the historical situation, and one of the notable improvements in Civ III over Civ II.

    Very true. At the time I joined the game, just before the Indian Treachery, many of the players seemed worried about the future of Fanatika. However, if I had pulled up one of my old games with that map, I would have judged it already decided. From a Builder's standpoint, switching to Republic and doubling the work force would have provided a reasonably certain path to a UN or Starship victory.
