Hi all! I have played Civ since the first edition was issued - so long ago it was simply called CIV! My copy came in a 2-disk box with "Worms". I never played that game in the 15 years since I got it - thank goodness I played CIV first! I skipped Civ 2 and played Civ 3 for a long time, till every tile on all the worlds had been built upon. I treated myself a few years ago to Civ IV Complete and, apart from a lull of a couple of years, have been a BTS addict since. All sorts of mods played, especially Rhye's Fall and Rise, but generally come back to the basic scenarios and maps. Have still huge amounts to learn and having been lurking round the forums for a long time, I know this is where to learn how to improve. I just wonder why it took me so long to find out how good Willem and his dikes are on watery maps! Haven't got CIV V yet as I know my PC couldn't take it, being powered by elastic bands as it is!
