There is ONE thing in my mind that prevents CIV III from being the GREATEST Strategy Game of All Time.....how the workers deal with pollution. I'm frustrated and distraght that I have to spend 20-25% of my time in the end game dealing with pollution. This is a bunch of garbage (no pun intended). I'm not saying let's do away with pollution, because it's a great aspect of the end game. However, the method of cleaning it up is TEDIOUS!!! What I have asked for in the past at CIV III and am now asking all of you is for a grass roots effort to have them put in a toggle for the Automate Workers Feature. I'd like the option of turning off certain capabilities when in Automated Mode. i.e. workers can build roads, irrigate, build forts, deforest, dejungle, plant forest, mine, etc. In the end game I'd like to be able to leave say 30 or so workers in Automated mode, with the restriction that they ONLY clean up pollution. If there is no pollution then they JUST SLEEP. When pollution pops up, then they wake up, clean up the pollution and then go back to sleep. The problem is now if you automate the workers, then when there is no pollution then they go around screwing up the terrain by chopping down forests you want to keep, irrigating mine fields you want to keep or mining farm land you want to keep. In other words the automated workers SUCK in their current state by not being able to toggle on and off the features you'd like them to do when automated. Please, I would like to know if there are others out there that share this opinion and if there is ANY WAY we can get Civ III to add this as a patch to either the original or PTW? Like I said this is THE CHANGE I would like to see in making CIV III become the PERFECT PC Strategy Game.
