    No matter who wins I REALLY hope somebody turned off time victory because I find it really lame. Does anyone remember the settings?

    I think Ronald Reagan edited the save-game file and turned it back on. Goes to show what he know... knew. :mischief:

    United Nations has had Nuclear weapons in space banned since the 60s or 70s. forget when, but the use of them beyond the planet is banned in some form or another.

    Edit: from the UN website

    "PREVENTION OF OUTER SPACE ARMS RACE, RATIFICATION OF NUCLEAR-TEST-BAN TREATY"

    Ya, I guess if the world really was like Civ then nobody could defy a UN resolution. So that settles that.

    I think China tested a missile that they shot from the ground at a satellite. Anyone know where the missile was fired from? Land or space?

    yeah, I think it was our unprecedented trade of open borders for +1 citizen specialist in every city.

    Culture is a tough one to call. Some people said America can't claim cultural victory because it's too intertwined with Britain, which I agreed with at first. But if that's the case, then Roman Empire can claim victory because more people speak Romance languages than English (though just barely). I think if you're gonna call cultural victory, it has to be culture achieved during the actual Empire and by the actual Empire. In any case, I''m gonna say Vikings FTW. They're coming back and you know it.

    Well...I think, that definitely NO nation would win a cultural victory...ANY town in the world has been conquered at least once in the last 2k years...Remember the cultural penalty when a town is taken over? :(

    So, space for US, India, China or EU.
    Or domination for US. (If they get Iraq vassaled in the next 2 or 3 turns, they can continue with Afghanisten or Israel...Or whutever.)
    Maybe Bush is even intelligent engough to make a revolution before his election period ends and the US will become a Police State with Vassalage and Theocracy. (Pentagon, West Point, Agressive-Trait (He should go back in time and produce musketeers... :D) - Then his units will have a nifty bonus exp (remember his SEALS?)


    But...If I look around a bit here in Germany, I think it won't take long until some stupid austrian can come back again here, scream some parols and all those stupid fascist (and other stupidoes) will follow him blind on his way to save the game and trying another domination win. (YES, I'm pis*** off the recent developments here in Germany...)

    So, everything is open, I think...I just don't think, that Vatikan or Luxemburg could do it...Monacco tried to cultural, but that stupidos forgot to build up 2 settlers so they can have three Legendary cities. :D

    With a cultural victory enabled Europe would have won since a lot of time.
    We have at least 4 legendary cities: 2 historical (Rome,Athens), 2 for their contemporary importance (London,Paris).
    USA would have a legendary city (NYC), and perhaps could have won if cultural victory means spreading cultural influence.They would have already won for domination if it is meant a bit differently than in CIV4.
