    The Hebrews would be an awesome Civ for so many reasons!

    1. They were warriors. Not afraid to stomp other civs and obliterate them... and, you feel good doing it!

    2. They were religious.

    3. There are endless great leaders.

    4. They were builders: Solomon's temple, city of David, Jerusalem, so on.

    5. They have the strange ability to assimilate into other cultures, then reappear as an independant nation.

    6. They were gifted at trading resourses.

    7. They were, are and always will be hated by all their neighbors. Which is the situation I always find myself in; so if the Hebrews were a civ, I could at least feel good about everyone being mad at me.

    8. They were good at the spy game: From Joshua to modern Isreal spying on the U.S.

    Ever since Civ 2 let me edit the game, my friends and I have been building Hebrew Civ's.:king:

    It would be nice to see Vietnam in the expansion since, i think, they played a more important roll than they seem in mordern history. Btw, VC might be weaker than normal Marine, but they should be cheap and can be mass-produced so Vietnam Civ could build a huge army to scare anyone who dares to invade them (and also to invade their neighbors sometime:lol: )

    Hi, Ive been reading the forums for years but this is my first post. I finally broke down! I'd like to see the Vikings and Celts/Irish back simply because they're fun. I think Israel should be in for the same reasons other posters have given. There also really should be more American, Sub- Saharan African and E. Asian/ Polynesian civs. I also think that each civ shuld have 2 leaders and they should add more religions. I understand that these are just flavor changes and that players could just mod most of these changes themselves. However there are a lot of players like myself who don't know how to do this. On a side note, I hope they don't release two expansion packs like they did last time; that wasn't cool...

    I'd like to see the Vikings. Their contribution to the formation of many of today's nations is frequently over-looked and is much more significant than many of the civilizations proposed in this thread.

    Except for a special Opera House wonder, but it can only be build using a Danish Great Engineer.

    I'd vote for the Scandanavians, Celts, Ottomans, and Byzantines (an often overlooked major historical power, especially during the Crusades). I also think that the Dutch and at least one other civ from each of North America, South America (i.e. one Native civ from each), Asia and Africa are in order. The Babylonians (or just Babys for short :) ) would also be good, although not my personal favourites. Having Israel/Jewish civ would make sense. And, because we're the True North Strong and Free, Canada.

    DUTCH
    VIKINGS
    TURKS
    AUSTRIA (The mighty Holy Roman Hapsburg empire)
    POLAND (The great kingdom of Poland which defeated the Teutonic Knights and broke the Siege of Vienna under King Jan Sobieski III)
    KOREA (The hermit kingdom)
    THAI (The kingdoms of Ayutthaya and Siam)
    MALAYS (The Sri Vijaya Empire)
    MAYANS (The great American empire)
    ZULU (The mighty Shaka Zulu's warriors)
    ETHIOPIA (The ancient kingdom of Ethiopia)
    BORNO (The great Kanem-Borno empire)
    PORTUGAL (The Portugese colonial empire)
    HUNGARY (The kingdom of Hungary)
    HEBREWS (The ancient nation recorded in the Bible)
    BERBERS (The famous veiled Tuareg people and their counterparts who inhabited the coasts of North Africa, forming great kingdoms at Fez and Marrakech)

    Briefly back on the Canada as an Official Civ topic. As far as justification, how about having a very large economy on the world stage as far as population and population density is considered.

    As for techs, things related to natural resources, such as hunting, etc?

    Just a thought . . .

    Expansion packs should include much more than simply new civs.
    I miss the multiple maps intorduced in Civ 2 Test of Time. The aliens were stupid, easy to beat, but the concept was interesting. Also, as time progresses, I wish we could build cities underwater (some civ --CTP?-- did that. It was about the only cool thing it allowed).

    Yes! Another good point that I forgot to mention. The VC SHOULD be cheaper and a little weaker! :D Thanks for pointing that out, mate :p

    I want te game to last a bit into the future maybe, so we can have technology similar to the start of Alpha Centauri, building ocean cities and such.

    please no fractured Roman byzantine civ- just a knock off of the roman empire- held out for awhile then faded to the superior middle eastern civs. They bribed most of thier enemies, and offered up nothing other than trying to hold onto faded glory like a falling apart southern plantation house.
    Might as well have the Confederate states.
    Much more interesting Civs out there. How about one that they haven't had before? This clamoring for "favorites" stops other possiblities. zzzz.
