Hi, I'm Eran of Arcadia. You may remember me from such forums as Off Topic and . . . well, that's it. Believe it or not, I used to play this game. Civ 2 and 3, specifically. Also SMAC. Don't even remember why I stopped, I had some good times. But I'm way behind the curve. What are some major features that are likely to appear in the latest installment that weren't there in 3, and how do they work? I'm vaguely aware that they got rid of the "veteran" designation and replaced it with some sort of promotion system for military units, and that religion is involved . . . somehow? Is culture still a thing? Did they introduce any new victory conditions? What might I expect in 6?
