If you guys are waking up every morning anxiously ticking off your calendar until the release on the 15th of November for THE game you might want to check-out this web for the next 120 days ... it's a completely overhauled CTP2 mod called Ages of Man by Stancarp which is more like an expansion pack with new gameplay features you've only dreamed of in a civ game:


Pdf read me: http://www.theagesofman.net/readme_final.pdf

If CTP2 was a medicore game (5/10) compared to Civ II (8/10) or Civ III (9/10), this MOD raises the yardstick to an impressive 8/10 for CTP2. Guaranteed to stop you drooling for the next three months.

Highly recommended and it's free.

You can download it free from Apolyton (albeit you need the original CTP2 game to play it):

Well the game's graphics are below Civ III, but CTP2 was released before, in 2000.


But it's the gameplay that really counts in TBS games. And the mod of Stan Karp is just great (and free !). It introduces many features we've yearned for in Civilization III and IV such as:

- civil wars
- empire surrender
- civilization traits
- goods
- great heroes
- historical events such as Mongol Hoard and Black Plague
- Great King units with successions and historical heroes and generals.
- New wonders and wonder movies
- New techs
- New units
- and lots more. It improves CTP2 vastly, completely overhauling it making it almost a new game with improved AI. It adds a whole lot of depth to CTP2.
