    Is there going to be a sequel to BE or not? This game really took things in a great direction and I Think it would be an absolute shame for firaxis not to iterate on what they did with Civ 6 and make a planet colonizer civ game. The setting and writing were absolutely great, they just needed to drill this down deeper to make it a truly amazing game.

    It doesn't mention the great mistake. It uses it as a section label.

    It is a noteworthy mention. Let's hope they continue the franchise.

    The hard part is done. Introducing people to it, building the setting and taking the lumps associated with expectations. Now everyone knows what to expect and can hopefully appreciated it without making comparisons to other games.

    I am looking forward to it! :) :) Now, what would we want in it? I just posted an idea on the 4th affinity, and another on the BE is broken thread. I think both would be good, but what would you want?

    You mean like a second expansion? That'd be really nice, but unfortunately its probably not going to happen.

    Anyways, getting back towards onto the topic of whether there will be a sequel or not, how about whether there would be an offshoot sequel similar to what Spaceships was to BE? From my perspective taking a slightly different approach here, if they were to take the XCOM approach of squads "doing things" and put it into the BE universe (i.e. a variety of missions on a variety of planets as represented in BE) I think that would be pretty cool, and draw a good crowd from both the BE fans as well as the XCOM crowd (read: taking advantage of already established fan bases to build upon). They've already got both game engines available and experienced staff working in both these environs, and a lot of the graphics from both games could just be re-used in this environment as well. And of course this would be a good way to introduce aliens into the BE Universe.

    Civ BE with Civ VI mechanics would be ideal for a sequel.

    What would be great, would be if when you won the space race victory that your save would be used for BE. Your AI competitors would be the other surviving civs. The BE sponsors would be used to fill in for sponsors eliminated in the Civ VI before liftoff.

    You would get a message that the internet tech had been stolen (if it wasn't already) upon liftoff. A message that the other civs are coming would follow moments later.

    Follow up.

    Civ IV BTS had a Future War mod that started after the breakup of a one world government. It had the space race techs but disabled that VC. If you wanted to skip the Civ VI part, it would start in something like that.

    How do you get "Caveman2Cosmos"? Steam does not carry it.

    I know that C2C is a mod of Civ IV. I have played Civ IV for years, and still play it; usually the Future War Epic mod of Civ IV BTS. The FWE tags the Future War tech tree onto the BTS tree which means that modern armor comes early enough to use. I have been trying to get a hold of C2C for probably 10 years. Any help GREATLY appreciated!

    I'm playing a heavily modded BERT game right now and I see so many ways they could make a kick ass sequel for BE... they said this was going to be its own franchise, let's hope they didn't change the plan. Despite all flaws, the game is good [when modded, true] and deserves more chances.
