I tried C2C out few years ago, and it was terribly buggy and crashing all the time, and extremely slow. But I was really impressed with all the content that had been added to the game. So, two days I ago I by happenstance managed to stumble over here and noticed that C2C had received multiple updates since then. Downloaded, started C2CWorld game on biggest map size and slowest game speed. I just hit Antiquity few hours ago and it has been a blast! Big thank you to all the people working hard on this mega-mod over the years. Just Pre-History alone has been an amazing experience with all the new espionage and combat rules/options. Best thing - not a single crash or error has popped up. Few times unit graphics took some time to load, you know where the guy/animal runs from off-screen to the right spot, but other than that, it's been flawless. Well, except for the message spam about volcanoes. I seem to get a message about a volcano going active, or dormant, or passive, or something else every 10-20 turns. Oh and my Exile hiding inside an enemy city has twice gotten lost in the swamp that the city is built on, which was quite amusing. One question: it still seems to me that tech advancement, both for me and the AI, is a bit too fast. I admit I am going pretty heavy on technology, but even on the slowest game speed possible, it did feel like I progressed pretty fast. Which makes me worried that the tech advancement speed will only get faster - but hopefully the opposite will happen. Can't wait to see what surprises await me in the following eras, so kudos and thanks again!
