    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know of a place online where there's a scanned copy of the Civ2 Test of Time technical poster that has the tech trees and unit lists for the fantasy, scifi and extended scenarios?

    Someone has asked me to show it's unit list to them and I can't find one anywhere on google. CFC has the ToT Terrain booklet and all the MGE Civ2 posters but not the ToT poster.

    I recently acquired a physical copy of it off ebay that's in excellent condition so if no one comes forward with a copy online perhaps I can scan it and fix the problem myself! But I'm not going to waste my time if it's already here somewhere!

    It would be an interesting contribution to the community to upload to the forum.

    Since no one has done this, I'll order another copy, slice it an scan it. I did a quick scan from my copy but the poster is two large to copy conveniently on an A4 scanner.

    Nah don't worry about butchering a nice one mate. After I didn't hear anything here I took my poster into work as there's a big A3 scanner there and like you I realised very quickly that this was not going to happen in my little A4 scanner at home as the poster is massive and double sided. Plus the work one is better at stopping light bleed-in, is sharper regardless of DPI settings and seems to pick up colours better than home scanners.

    I figured each side equaled 4 lots of A3 pages so 8 scans and I'd be done. However it turns out it was even bigger forcing me to do 3x3 instead of 2x2 per side meaning I had to delicately shove this giant f*ing poster (bent in different ways) into the scanner 18 friggin times lol. Good thing I waited until everyone left the office as I looked ridiculous with this thing, as sometimes I'd have half the poster in the scanner and other half draped over my head so I could see the touchscreen lol!!!

    So of course now I've got 18 big 35MB picture files I've gotta flip, rotate and stitch together which is not going to be fun lol. I don't think I'm going to get to it this weekend as my focus is on finishing the very last of the preservation project MGE uploads as I really wanna hit that milestone this weekend. So I'll probably sort this ToT poster stuff out next weekend!
