    As you've all seen, Civilization III is nearing its 10th birthday and sadly I still see poor souls lamenting about how they don't have the Conquests expansion. Since this here forum is all about modding and you can't do a lot of modding without Conquests, that makes things a bit unwieldy.

    Well it turns out that Steam, Direct2Drive, and Impulse all have digital downloads of Civ3 Complete (PC) for under $5 USD. That's cheap enough that it should be an instant purchase for anyone, but times are hard and some people just don't have the money, or in the case of you young'uns, don't have the plastic.

    Edit 09/2014: I'm limiting this offer to Steam only, because the other stores have migrated and I always keep a couple of extra copies in my Steam inventory anyway. It routinely goes on sale for as low as $1.24!

    In honor of Civ3's anniversary and to help bolster the future of this little commune I've decided to help out.

    So then, if you:

    • don't have Complete and/or Conquests
    • honestly don't have (access to) the funds to buy it
    • haven't tried to pirate the game
    • have a Steam account (free)
    • and are a participating member of CFC
    PM me and I'll gift a copy to your Steam account via email address of friend request, no further questions asked. All I expect in return is that you continue to contribute to the forum in some way, and pay it forward if you get a chance.

    Spoiler :
    I'll have to take your word for most of the above points, so please don't try to take advantage of me and ruin it for everyone else. Of course I reserve the right to modify or rescind the offer at any time for any reason without notice yadda yadda IANAL.

    That is extremely thoughtful of you WildWeasel. The conquests expansion is definitely worth the $5 cost for someone to dish out during the decade anniversary if they can. The changes are big enough and excellent enough that the person will never miss their $5 spent. ;)

    :hatsoff: such an offer should be put in the front page! Very nice of you really!
    About the 5th point, maybe someone "really willing to become a participating member of Civ3 C&C forum" should be welcome too ? With Conquest they will discover all kinds of new possibilities with Civ3 and would be able to participate more than they do now.

    erm... I'd be afraid that might exceed my budget ;) In fact I'd appreciate it if word of this doesn't spread beyond C&C. Which is why I made the final point:
    I'm not expecting someone to have published a mod, just that they've been here and posted in the forum, showing some interest in what we do, and are not just a brand new member who we've never seen before.

    I'm pretty sure "participating member of C&C" and "don't have Conquest" doesn't make a lot of people, and it won't harm your budget to spread the word, but I might be wrong.
    Let's wait and see ;)

    What a fantastic offer and awesome way to keep this community alive and thriving!

    For those not sure if it worth $5, there are no other games that I've ever hung onto for a decade. Nothing compares to Civ3, and to be fair to my "Real Life" I hope nothing else ever does :)

    10 people praising me and not a single taker... I may have stumbled upon the secret to public goodwill.

    So... maybe wait a little bit more and then enlarge your offer to more potential people ?

    This is a Very Thoughtful gesture indeed WildWeazel.
    I do think it wise to limit the offer rather than extend it to the general population obviously.

    ...hey, if you do not get any takers, I can always use a little extra cash...:D JK :lol:
