Having enjoyed Civ I way back in the PSX1 days, and very happy with CivIII (vanilla - I guess) I'm trying my first GOTM (#32). Copied an error message at the 37% load point; but happily found the mods necessary to get started: Many thanks to ainwood for the links. I've rarely ventured beyond Regent, so don't expect a lot, but perhaps I can learn more about improving my play. Already, I'm at the first turn - and very hesitant to do anything! (grin) Ah well, let the fun begin. Thanks again for those who take the time to put this site and info together.
