    Hey people,

    Excellent website. I've been looking for something like this since '98. First class site for a first class collection of games (except Alpha Centauri, which I don't like much at all).

    Is it anyone else or am I the only one who prefers the original graphics for Civ 2? Not too keen on the animated people, and it all seems a bit dark.

    Anyway - see you on here in the future, I'm off to whip the bottoms of the French. Always good for a laugh!

    Hi Valdy.com,

    I think Civ2's units are very nice too. They can be easily distinguished on the map. if you have Test of Time, there are a few patches in the downloads collection that will lighten the graphics.

    Thanks for your compliments.

    Sure Thunderfall,
    but I'd prefer the (prehistoric) 2d graphics of Civ1. I don't really like Civ2 units design. Perhaps because I don't like "3D looking" units...
    I don't share your opinion. But please don't kick me out

    And indeed, that's an excellent forum. I totally agree with Valdy.com.
    Since I discovered it, I couldn't stop going on it. Sorry but you'll have to bear me for long, Thunderfall

    I must say I agree with Valdy.com too. The french need to be wipped.
    But yes, I like the colorfulness and the distinguishness (is that a word?) of the different units in the Civ1 better.

    It seems like they're gona have the same oblique perspective in civ 3 too. Isn't there an other way?

    In the future, it would be cool if they had a version with a real globe for the map, or what do you all think?

    Hey, what do you all have against French?
    If you're a man, I'm waiting for you for a dipo-war. I'll buy all your cities . Yes, I'm a gentleman, no nukes nor tanks. I'm very subtle

    Just kidding about the french GenghisK.. I sense that somebody usually plays them(?)

    Me man enough? I play against you all the time. I try to establish embassies with your cities all the time. I'm the barbarians, but your subtle armed forces always kills me for gold.

    Yeah I read that.. I don't want to think about how odd that would be.

    Wrong. I usually play... try to guess it... Genghis Khan. Give you only one guess

    I'd gladly throw in $6000 I sense I've got on the nerves of somebody. Neelax? Still here?

    Hey how did you guess it?
    BTW I've just figured out that I was promoted Phalanx. I didn't notice it, it was R who told me. Wanna drink something? It's for me today

    Probably yes but I think it'd be a bit off-topic

    It's hard to get of the topic at this thread - "Hi everyone!"

    Genghis Khan... hmmm. Then, might it be you're the leader of the Mongoloids...? <IMG SRC="http://forums.civfanatics.com/ubb/yeah.gif" border=0>

    Party on, man, one day I'll be a nuclear unit.

    Hey, you're really to seek war against the Mongols aren't you? Genghis the Great doesn't fear going on a raid over Sweden
    BTW and FYI, I repeat, it's Genghis Khan. Not Kahn, the Borland/Inprise boss. Nor (citizen) Kane Well, off-topic, sorry.

    Currently, they're caught in a virtual nuke war againsta Russian and... Germans. I didn't start it, they did. Now they'll feel my wrath
