    How often has anyone been nuked, or been saved by SDIs in CivIV? and what difficulty were you on? ive never seen any AI in civIV use a nuke.

    Yes Thebes did it before him. And Sparta before that, and Athens before that.

    Macedon was a GREEK KINGDOM. End of story.

    I live for ICBM's. As you can tell by my nickname. I always stockpile a whole heap and wait untill someone really annoys me and then I launch a massive strike with ICBM's and follow it up with constant air strikes.

    I wonder if Alex-boy is mentally disturbet in this game too, actually I think he is!
    I played a peaceful start which went well until the japanese came out of the jungles with millions of chariots - spearmen saved my day but it was close...Just when the immediate danger is over...Freddie the germ (Krueger, grr?) attacks me out of "cautious" reputation and takes two cites fast and my empire has a big area so relocating naturally took some time...If it where not for a strategical line reaching all the way along my French (me) - german border Id be bones and dust now...In the middle of all this...Alex-boy attacks. GRRR. I get so pissed of so I aim it all on him and takes one of his major cities fast and soon I manage to negotiate a peace with him and immediately he's "cautious" and soon "friendly". Wierdo. Guess he respects strength or something.

    I think Alexander does admire power, he was constantly opening negotiations with me as I was grinding the dirty Germans to dust. Trading became even easier once I turned my war machine onto the Persians. He didn't like me knocking out his cities however, I wonder why? :D Back to the subject of this thread, I don't use nukes generally; but it was fun in CivII to plant a nuke in an enemy city, get caught and watch wave after wave of opposing civs come after you because of it, ah, the memories.

    This afternoon I nuked the Spanish 22 times, the Aztecs 6 times and the Russians 16 time. Spain was Nuked so hard that there wasn't an inch of unpolluted territory left! End up razing ALL Spanish cities for good measure.

    This thread makes me smile. :D

    One time I went the evil dictator route and declared war on everyone. I was winning for a while, then started to lose big time. As my borders were depleting I started to stockpile nuclear missiles in one city. As they were nearing it I unleashed my nukes, destroying at least two of my enemy nations before they finally got me. The environment was properly ruined - I doubt the earth would ever recover. :cool:

    Left of the next battle.
    Last night I was out to relieve a bit of stress, played a peaceful game... Right up until Russia randomly declares war on my 2 cities russing cossacks into Hamburg to take my wonders from me.

    I managed to stop them from taking berlin in the nick of time, with a large stack of Cossacks and Catapults ready to tear down my great walls. The peace was short lived however, as Peter believed he could return with a larger force and take me again. I was now fully irritated at him, decided it was time for the "IT" factor.

    ..."IT" being entering the world builder to put close to 100 ICBM's on Berlin. Yes, the blood would soak russian streets tonight. I had Alexander come with me to declare on Russia, I sent each and every ICGM after Russian cities, destroying all 23 of them that I saw enough for my anger to be fully quenched by fire.


    I must say, nukes are amazingly well done in that game, and having watched almost 100 of them at one country in the span of 10 minutes made me feel dangerously close to the king of everything. I tried to go to sleep at 2 in the morning and I couldn't stop laughing...and laughing... and laughing.

    My current project involves accumulating as much negative reaction from AI as possible. :mischief: One recent opponent said, after 1 turn of nuking:

    This reminds me of when I'd cheat in Civ2 when a game went south, just to unload the frustrations.

    "Oh, so you're going to make war with me in the first 20 turns and swamp me with chariots, eh? Well, let's see what your little horse whippers can do against a few Stealth Bombers, baby!"

    Alexander only truly became crazy after Bucephalus and Hephaestean died. Before that, he (usually) treated his subjects and those he conquered very well.
