    The original Klyden strategy guide had a great way to gain a huge strategic advantage, but I don't think the newer ones do.

    Basically? Replace all irrigation with mines. Since food is easy to come by in AoI, your cities will all be large enough to work all tiles, making the excess citizenry useless as there's enough money in the game that any research/tax specialists are also unnecessary. Barring a defensive bonus, the extra citizens don't really have a benefit.

    The net result is even if you have a tiny position, you're going to be miles more productive than any of your peers on a per-city basis. Which means those production-enhancing improvements get built quicker, which means you're going to become a powerhouse extremely fast.

    I've taken Russian Manchuria and Vladivostok in my USA game and I'm on my way to Chita Oblast... I think I'll go into the saved game editor and make the difficulty higher. I am rapidly approaching the "roflstomp everyone" phase.

    Or heck, maybe I'll just declare war on everyone. That's bound to be entertaining.

    Hi kun5979. Thanks for reminding me :) the Fine Folks over at CivForum.de have agreed to host all of my files on their server. Our fellow cfc'er Civinator was instrumental in facilitating the switch from the Late Great StormOverCiv site . So thanks to Civinator :goodjob:

    Here is the link to a patched 4.1 version of AoI :

    AoI

    Again , special thanks to Civinator for it was he who uploaded this 'patched' version . It fixes the annoying sudwester military acad bug and a few other real slight text corrections . Iow , this is the latest version :)

    Lastly , me and Civinator are working on uploading a gfx update of new units made since v4.1 launch . So stay tuned :D

    haha i forgot that August 2 was AoI's 10th birthday [party] i can remember sitting on the beach that summer in 2004 with a certain book, First Great Triumph: How Five Americans Made the Country a World Power by Warren Zimmermann, and remembering how i thought it would make a neat civ scenario. this was before civ4 was even out :) the book is outstanding btw. it's not just some kind of rah!rah! book. it really delves into the nuances of the intl balances of the era and how the US was sort of forced to act. anyhow, happy birthday AoI! my! how you've grown!!

    in addition, i updated the front page here in the thread with the new DL link.

    Outstanding :) big thanks Old Buddy
    I am pleased to present a new set of links in connection with our Grand Birthday Celebration :)

    First link is the large folder dl. Get it here. It contains 130 new unit gfx folders, courtesy mostly of Delta_Strife and ole Ares :) soon i will post a word doc of placeholder 'replacements' . Of course :D Civinator is person responsible for assembling, compiling, and testing all the new files . In addition , The Artist Formerly Known As Blue Lion aka Civinator :cool: fixed a handful of busted civp links and the like . Gameplay remains the same .

    here is the dl for the 5.0 biq. Again, no gameplay changes. I hope everyone enjoys :D

    Good work :) See, I told you someone should check your unit folders for zombies and get some fresh meat in there. ;)
