For example, my last game ended at about 1955 AD. What about you?
Early 20th Century. I find that most of my games end around that time. Domination victories usually tend to be earlier.
Wait, what? I thought that you meant what tech age my game was in when it ended--i.e. did I have GDRs running rampant. Not what date the game gave it. Is that what you meant?
I mean, at what time did you get your victory (or defeat). Not what was your tecnological status.
Oops, sorry. I have no Idea what the date was--never pay any attention to it.
No problem, man.
Oops - I voted 1400s, was actually T134 475AD
Atypical though, usually 1500s to 1700s.
yeah between 1901 and 1999. I've rarely had a game go beyond that
I have this pathological urge to wrap up my games as soon as I can, even though I know you dont get any more HOF points for it. I'm too used to Civ IV, and I get impatient with modern fighting anyway
Why? Modern warfare is so much fun with all the options you have. Tanks, planes, ships, nukes, and various combinations of them.
Anyway, I captured the last German city with a Giant Death Robot at around 1954 AD. I already won with a Spaceship a dozen turns back though.
Why is 1501-1749 called Modern Era?
Well, I looked from the wikipedia that this period is called ''Modern Era'' in English. The Contemporary Era begins at 1790 and lasts until today.
In Civ5 I find a little confusing that they call ''Modern Era'' to the supposed 1900-2000 period. It shouldn't be ''Post-industrial Era'' or ''Contemporary Era'' (but that's confusing as well) or something?
Modern can refer to many different things, in civ it refers to the time (roughly) after the industrial revolution, however I have seen the "Modern Era" reference 1500 - present and even one from ~1400 - present (It was a book on the evolution of military weapons and held that the modern era was the start of widespread use of gunpowder, I believe starting with the Islamic gunpowder empires (Ottos, Mughals and one other that I don't remember the name of)
There's just a few too many options for me... I prefer the rock-paper-scissors style of the earlier eras.
Plus, a lot of the Modern options aren't well balanced. Naval combat heavily weighs in your favor against the AI. Air combat requires suffering through long animations and huge stacks. I do like the basics of Rocket Artillery, Mechs, and Modern Armor though.
