    Hi Everyone! A little break from the drama...I have finally got Civ 3 back up and running on my restored PC. I will get my turn done tonight and forwarded to Bow.

    I find it encouraging that the players will stay with this game to its conclusion. And it's good to see that. I hope we can all confine our hostilities to the HOF Battlefield!

    And I do appreciate everyone's patience with my PC disaster. It really has been a nightmare but I'm working through it. Thanks!

    Indeed. Are you going to make me eat crow on that one? Hey, we can make it a contest over who falls first: China or Italy ;)

    Perhaps Bow BUT...I took out 3 of your units, sold off all the improvements so its use to you is less than it was! That was WORTH a Marine Division dying with honors! Cheers! :king:

    Ouch. I delayed rebasing those two planes by a month because there was a sandstorm next to the field after I captured it :(

    Guess I should have diverted a Para division or two there to tend the fighters.

    Also, where is Dutch Har?

    VDB near Peking probably hit a mine or irrigation.

    Or a duck.

    muz, is the airfield hidden by fog-of-war? If so, it might be destroyed, just not visible as such until you scout that tile again.

    So I have a new machine and in loading the scenario I'm getting this error


    Anyone remember what this is about? The file looks to be there.
