lurker's comment: Seeing as the last turn was Jul 01, 2006, 06:25 PM I will officially say goodbye to ThERat series. I know I can barely find the motivation to be play solo games with the RB Epics. My last one was an incomplete, and that isn't the most recent. Still can't decide exactly what it is, but Civ4 doesn't have the addiction factor of Civ3. Between upgrading to 1 gig of memory, and the patches the issue isn't response time. While the late game a much better challenge, it is to much of a time suck.
