    I'm thinking about buying Civilization. But I've read that "real" Civ ended on IV part. Which one should I buy?

    I'd say go with 5, people moan about it for no apparent reason IMO, its a good game. The combat is much better. And the new gods and kings stuff adds religion if you like that sort of thing.

    I wouldn't say 'for no apparent reason'; I've explained my personal issues with it. I'd say it rather depends on how you play the game if certain things about it are going to bug you.

    It bugs me but there are enough good things about it that I still feel the urge to play it.

    Jon Shafer looks back at Civ V,and the decisions he made:


    Quite interesting. The more I've been playing I've started to come to similar conclusions. Makes his new game At The Gates sound like it should be keeping an eye out for.

    I really dont like the way you cant stack units on Civ 5 and the lack of religion etc without the expansion. I think Civ 4 is better although Civ 1 is the greatest of them all.

    5 is the best place to start though as the tutorials are much better than any other version

    From the front page.

    2K has announced the second expansion for Civilization 5.

    It's called Brave New World, is developed by Firaxis Games and is due out on the PC and Mac this summer.

    Brave New World introduces nine new civilizations, each with new unique units and builders. There are new leaders, too, including Casimir III of Poland.

    A new Culture Victory condition has been added. To this end you can use Great Artists, Writers and Musicians to create masterpieces. To win a Culture Victory you need to become the first civilization with a majority influence in all other civilizations.

    Also new is World Congress, which votes on issues such as trade sanctions against rogue nations. Firaxis said you'll be able to influence "game-changing resolutions". "A new lead into the Diplomatic Victory ensures that the end of the game will be more dynamic than ever before."

    Elsewhere, there's new International Trade Routes, eight new wonders, including the Parthenon, Broadway and the Uffizi, and two new scenarios: War Between the States (fight the American Civil War from either the Union or Confederate side), and Scramble for Africa.

    "After adding a number of great new features to Civilization 5 with the Gods & Kings expansion, the team continued to search for ways to create even more exciting gameplay through new systems and features," said Civilization creator Sid Meier.

    "We're happy to bring our fans another ambitious expansion that will provide hours and hours of new Civilization experiences."

    Sounds tasty. If this can do for the mid-late game what God and Kings did for the early-mid then I'm going to be a happy camper.

    I've had Civ V installed on my Mac ever since I replaced my ancient one a couple of years ago. I've been playing games since long before the first Civ was released, and have owned a couple of Civ games (1 and I think 3, on top of trying FreeCiv countless times) without ever managing to click with them. The only one I've really got into was Revolution, so I'd arrived at the conclusion that the main series was too complex for me to be bothered with, but I left it installed anyway just in case.

    I loaded it today because I felt guilty that Steam was telling me I'd only "played" it for four minutes, so I figured I'd have time to bash through the tutorials before settling in to drink beer and watch the football, then the boxing.

    It's nearly 2 a.m. here in Prague now. I didn't see the football or boxing, and the beer's still in the fridge.

    yeah...I dont like how much time i use on it, but once i start it there is no way back
    Civ V is simple but yet so compelling

    I've always had a soft spot for what used to be called "god games" (a genre that back then was considered to include everything from Sim City to Syndicate), but I haven't lost track of time like that since the original Settlers on the Amiga. I can see from this thread that some of the purists don't like it, but I'm hooked. Maybe I'll go back and re-try some of the older games in the series once I've properly got to grips with this one, it's always been a regret that I never got on with the original as much as I expected to.

    I'm a Civ IV diehard, but the idea of no stacks is so tempting in its own right...
  • Deleted user 28 May 2013 14:24:46
    I'm loving the scenarios. I must have only played one or two full games of Civ5, because I spend almost all my time on the scenarios. The fall or Rome is a fucker.

    What's a good resource for learning different playstyles? I keep finding myself dropping into a 'build everything' mode and covering all options, but I'd like to try specialising properly. Particularly with religion.

    Can't wait for the new DLC. I admit Civ IV did some of the things better than it's successor, but I just can't go back to unit stacks. I low how units are moved/placed through out the map in CIV V it really adds new depth to units and combat (although AI suc*s in it).

    Playing Brave New World last night and ran head first into a really major problem with the Venetians, they've been pissing me off for ages but the only time they got too lairy I gave them a thorough kicking, however it's got to the stage of the World Congress where having city state allies gives you a delegate per CS.

    I currently have 3 votes, most Civilisations have 2, Venice has 15. I don't think anything Venice doesn't agree with is going to get through some how...

    I bought BNW a few days ago to give Civ5 another chance, but I'm still finding it impossible to get into. I think playing loads of CK2 and Vicky2 have permanently disabled my ability to enjoy Civ :-(

    How come this city isn't producing Silver for me? What am I missing?

    It is producing silver but 1 citizen is working the sheep's and 1 is in the silver mine, you don't need to work a tile to produce silver so long as the square is within your cultural boundaries and you've got the required upgrade on the tile it will automatically be added to your available resources.

    Are you referring to the tile yield or to a missing silver resource?

    If the former: it looks like you have had mining for a while (considering you have coal) and the place looks mined.
    I'd guess the mine either isn't fully finished yet or it's just ye ole resource yield display bug causing tiles to appear to yield less than they actually do. Hover over the hex when out of city view to see actual yield.

    If the latter: you're probably trading silver away you tool ;P
