    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if I lost something... will there be an equivalent to Civpedia in this game?

    I won't be lying - I probably read every single entry in Civ V and IV! It makes me feel a lot more immersed in the game.

    It will also allow us to know more about home earth if every faction has an entry. Besides, I remember my first time playing the original Mass Effect - I'd read everything related to those technologies. Especially since Bioware did a great job with the original game in trying to make it feel "hard sci-fi". I'd expect the same from Firaxis.

    So, does anyone know?

    I would assume so; information on all the wonder, resources, improvements, factions etc has to go somewhere. The only question is whether we'll get some nice fiction to read about all that stuff.

    If they do not have one, then they need that giant book that came out With Railroad Tycoon or Civilization!!!


    I still have both of those books by the way, back then, they WERE books!!

    But relax, they will have one. Can you imagine the backlash if they were to leave it out?

    It's still "Civ" BE. They don't call the one for Civ 5 the "5pedia."

    I don't suppose they can get away with calling it Datalinks, can they? :p

    Considering it's mostly plain text and there would be rioting if it were left out I'd say yes :lol:

    Bleh that sounds like the name of a wiki about Xenogears\Xenosaga\Xenoblade ....

    Actually apparently it's about Alien VS Predator :lol:

    Even AC had it under the name DATALINKS!
    I don't think they can get away without that especially when you consider that the technologies will be something completely inintelligible by the lay man.

    Personally I hope they will chose DATALINKS as the name.
