    Here's a rather distasteful and funnier than hell article on CIV. The author is definately well familiar with the series.

    Something Aweful

    Also contains an introduction by Sid himself!

    Been a reader/forumite of SA for a few years myself. It's pretty good most of the time.

    Hurricanes: If you live on a coastline, the chances of getting hit with a hurricane are increased. This will cause massive damage to the city and a long period of anarchy. If you have a competent emergency director this will only last 1 turn. If the director only has experience with Arabian horses, recovery will take 10 turns, but you will get a +1 to taming Arabian horses.
    :D

    I think I should have put as the thread title "New Article blah blah" so everyone read it. Will they put a link on the front, or not, since it's a spoof?

    But then I would've been fooled to that site, which would've ruined my day. You wouldn't want to do that, now would you?

    "This version won't teleport some players into the game, causing them to be immersed in an electronic universe and then killed by conscript barbarian warriors after walking into a cluster of huts. If this still happens, update your display drivers."

    Shame. All that talk about Civ IV being immersive was mere puffery.

    I remember a poll on a Civ fansite (Apolyton?) where users got to vote on which civs should be included on the next Civ. The winning option at the time I checked it was the Poles. This should teach them. :D

    SA rocks.
