Default Civ. 1 rules!

I'm so glad this game was posted, I've been looking for it for years. I use to play this game on my dad's computer when I was little for hours. I remember this game owned a good percentage of my year as a fifth grader. This game is so simple yet so amazingly addictive. The only thing I ever disliked about this game, is that for a while I really just wanted to build up my cities, and not be bothered by other countries. Oh well, thanks for renewing the old memories.

If you want to focus on city-building just play as the Aztecs on the real world map, you should be able to kill the Americans within the first few turns, after that you have all of north and south America to yourself, the other players don't seem to go to America so you can attack when you are ready.

P.S. Wooo! 200 posts!

Mhuahaha, nice to know I'm not the only one who played that tactic. It has just one weakness: Tenochtitlan was destroyed by barbarians several times and due to that I lost the game

Does anyone know where I can buy this game, the computer I had this on broke, and we're having trouble recovering the disk.

i like the review in the end (when you finish) and how the game makes a txt file where it puts all important achievements form the review.

oh and i recently installed latest patch on Civ3 and there too the weak units of oldancient times can win over a tank (even over modern armour). you need to put them in a city though and probably if they have some other bonues. sucks IMO.

Well, Spearmen have a defense rating of 2. The first tank you can build have an offensive capability of 16 (from memory).

The Spearman get a bonus of 50% from being fortified. Another bonus from being fortified in a city. Another 100% bonus if there is a city defense inside. Another 2 defense bonus if there is a radio tower in range... Another bonus if you try to attack a unit which is sitting on the other side of a river (etc)... And, from experience, Spearmen also have a defensive bonus against fast units.

So, if you add all this together... Your defense 2 unit end up with a huge defensive number. And, again from experience, in Civ III when you attack with anything less than at least twice the number the defensive unit have then every battle is a jeopardy...

What really plagued all Civ games up to now is the incredibly dumb RNDs. There is nothing more frustrating than to see a tank fight a musketman, get the defensive unit down to one health and then lose all its HP in one go. That's why I love armies: they simply can't lose.

Also, with any game that uses %'s to calculate results - there's always a slim chance, as there always is 0% being uncalculable by divisions, that the attackers will lose totally.
These miniscule opportunities seem to be taken quite a lot by computers, I've noticed...

You can't go wrong with nukes, though.
Just make sure you trash the world *after* you've gotten your people to Alpha Centurai!

There is no MAIN.EXE and no INSTALL.EXE, but a CIV.EXE.
