I would really appreciate some help. I got CIV IV for Christmas and have gotten to the point where I can defeat the AI regularly on Noble, and sometimes the next difficulty, and I have won my last three MP games in a row. Since I figured I was OK at it, I decided to pick up CIV II since I have heard so many good things about it. After playing that a while, and getting comforatble woth it, I then picked up CIV I. Now, in CIV IV the typical strategy is chop down trees to get production, then take down the AI's through war. Now, since you cant chop trees in CIV I, I was wondering what are some easy ways to go about CIV I. Now I'm starting to realize that more cities in CIV II is good, and that incremental rush buying is good to. So, what's the scoop in the original? So, I guess I need some help. I'm so used to the strategies in CIV IV that CIV I seems kind of foreign to me. Again, I would appreciate some easy ways to go about a game, and some simple hints. I'm not expecting a full blown guide by any means, just something to get myself started. So far I have enjoyed the game, and I hope to help contribute to the CIV I forums, since I post a lot in the CIV IV forums, and I'm starting to get involved with CIV II. Thanks for any help in advance, and yes, I did copy and paste some of this from another post. Help appreciated.
