    i never noticed this till now *you all probly already know this being civ fanatics :_)

    but the soudns of the sword fighting *would be worriros, archers*lol you would think they would have arrow nosies* legions, pikemen, phalax.. i think that's all..

    anyway the sword fighting sounds come from monty pythons the search for the holy grail.. the scene where the black knight is fighting the guy

    Actually, I think it is the other way around. I was told that they took the sounds from Civ and used them for the film....but, I could be mistaken. That movie is a riot!

    Cool! Now it comes down to who's cheaper, Sid or Monty Python. I have faith in Sid.

    I've experienced a lot of this. In the game "Axis and Allies", in the movie where it shows the buy in the bomber, it has the same sound has "3d Movie Maker" and a lot of other games.

    There is also "universal" animations.
    Eg: http://www.maxpages.com/ponytafire8
    Check the flame on the cursor.
    They used this in practically every game I have! It's been either edited or rendered, but it's always the same flame!

    He's got you there Cimfindriel

    Speaking about Monty Python...

    I think the settler should actually have been a little lumberjack.

    By the way,

    Can you also figure out who did the defeat music?
    At first, I thought the little sad song played when you lose was composed by the Microprose team but several days ago I heard on the radio that music. It was the 3rd symphony of somebody, the speaker said. But who?

    I admit defeat

    Dearly departed,

    We are gathered here today to celebrate the passing of a great leader. Though we have only know Cimfindriel for a week and a half his presence will remain within our hearts. To some he was a friend, but to most he was an aspiration; a constant reminder of how we could all become better people, and more importantly, better Civ players. We will miss Cimfindriel dearly...may his soul find everlasting peace and eternal rest.

    I will claim ignorance as a defense in this case. I didn't know when it came out, just told by a friend that the sound from the movie was from the game. Chances are...I just heard the wrong thing. So, guess I talked before I thought

    *Insert foot in mouth* Yummy..toe jam

    This is a silly thread.

    And that was a silly reference to Monty Python.

    What a complete waste of time.

    Hahah. How ironic I found this thread? We were filming a video this PM for class and my friend wanted me to do the MP scene where the guy comes running towards the camera from the same spot like four times over, then appears right beside the thing! We have that in our film! I come flyin up the street in a big white cape over and over and over!

    Right. Stop that. It's silly. I warn you not to get silly again, or I'll have to stop this thread.
