IMHO, Civ 3, as released, is a kinda sucky game. But I've worked on modifying it, to where it's a great game. But I have my own perspective, so I'm wondering what changes others have made that they're happy with. Here's what I've done. 1. Corruption is just too bad. I made courthouses cost 60 shields, and added 2 wonders, Colonial Capital and Strategic Alliance, available with Physics and Radio. They function exactly like FPs. (Physics doesn't really relate, but I originally put it with a different advance, which I forget now, but it didn't come at the right time in the game.) 2. Ships...sea travel needs to be alot better, partly for realism, partly for gameplay, and partly because you want to have a reasonable game if there's alot of water. So I made caravels travel 6 and carry 3, and transports travel 10. One or two other minor things. And that's the "scenario" I play every time.
