    i liked that song.

    "San Andreas Fault line - a massive earthquake has rocked the area, a large portion of land that was once connected to the mainland (i.e. a Pangaea map) has split away from the continent, diverging your population."

    "There's something strange in the neighborhood - the local populace of (city name) are being frightened by something within the city. they demand that the government do something about it!"
    • Give them money to stfu (-500 :gold: from treasury. 50% chance it may continue)
    • increase military presence in the city (2 military units from the edges of your empire can do nothing for 5 turns. 50% chance it may continue)
    • Do nothing. (+1 :mad: in all cities. +1 :yuck: in affected city)
    • Appease the gods, surely we must have disrupted some sort of indian burial grounds. (+2 :mad: in your cities. -2 population in affected city. 50% chance the affected city is destroyed)
    • Who you gonna call? the ghost busters arrive in your city and solve the problem. (+1 :) in all cities. +1 :culture: and :commerce: in affected city. -5000 :gold: from treasury)

    while two civs are at war, a machine from the future, a robot, is sent to kill the leader of the winning nation. the winning nation produces a unit, from the jungles, that is the only one able to stop the robot.
    the two units would fight to the death.

    i call it... "RAMBO vs TERMINATOR"


    also, Chuck Norris vs MacGyver vs Knight Rider vs Rocky... lol
    anyone wanna add anything?

    When you start an invasion of an opposing civ you get this message.

    Activist students from your newly constructed university protest your war and your system of government. They demand a change to Environmentalism and Pacifism. One of the leaders of the student group is blocking the passage of your tanks from leaving the city.

    Do you:
    1. Run him over and hunt down the dissidents -4 population in capitol, -2 in all other cities.
    2. Grant the request. Immediate peace negotiated with opposing civ, +4 permanent happiness points in all cities. Civics changed.
    3....

    How about instead of killing the populations of cities (which are in millions) you run over the student and just stop the protest with force. This causes unhappiness in all cities and also decreases relations with other civs

    Religious Schism: requires Theology, Philosophy, Theocracy and State Religion; obsolete with Electricity.
    Effect: you retain your capital, all your cities where state religion is not present and half your cities where the state religion is present; the other half change to the new sect and form a new civ which is furious with you, will not sign Open Borders with you, and makes peace with anybody with whom you are at war.

    Fundamentalism: requires Schism to have occurred anywhere.
    Effect: New unit appears, Suicide Bomber, characteristics as for spy: can be detonated in any city where your religion or sect is not present, causing loss of 1 population point there. (Try sending a group of them into a rival capital !)

    Al Gore didn't invent the Internet, even if he was born, you don't get a free Internet.

    Dalek Invasion:
    Daleks land and start exterminating everyone.

    New Units:
    Bastic Infantry- 50% bonus against Daleks, but they only have 20% odds of beating a Dalek in combat (including bonus) because the Bastic Bullets might not work. But they're cheap to build

    The Doctor- Has a 100% bonus against the Daleks, come with Sonic Screwdriver and TARDIS promotion. He is also quite strong and can beat Daleks 100% of the time, but he costs a heck of a lot of hammers to build and only 1 can be built ever.

    Creative Accounting: requires a Corporation.
    Effect: For 2 turns, corporation produces 100% extra gold, but on the third turn it goes bankrupt and disappears.

    Wall Street Crash: requires Wall Street, obviously.
    Effect: -50% gold production over entire civilization for 10 turns; lose 50% of treasury.

    Smog: requires Combustion and Coal .
    Effect: City gets +2 unhealthiness (+4 if also with Oil) - permanently.

    Like a previous posters idea, but expanded.

    Time Machine event:

    As a Great Scientist is popped, you can use him to 'bulb' the Time Machine Wonder, which sends the Great Scientist and X amount (5 or 10?) of units back to a previous save, with 3 options of 20, 50, or 150 turns ago.

    Meaning that 20, 50 or 150 turns earlier in the game you would receive a Great Scientist (who could be used to 'bulb' techs or be settled in a city as normal) and X amount of possibly futuristsic units who could be used as the spearhead of a new war!

    Think this is a feasible event. One less feasible . . .

    Xenomorph barbarians go on the rampage, reducing population in cities as they are used to spawn Alien hordes! With an Alien :queen: and the odd Predator killing the Aliens as well as a Marine or two! :scan:
