The third in a series of games that has gradualy evolved as Civilizations themselves do, Civilization III draws on the history of Civilization I & II to create a new evolution for the franchise. Many minor adjustments and fixes have been made, along with bigger tweaks that hail from Firaxis' Alpha Centauri, such as unique factions.

In Civilization one guides a civilization through war and peace over hundreds of years, from its birth to the Modern age. The turn based gameplay is singleplayer only, and is moddable with custom scenarios.

The World of Legends unoffical expansion pack to Beyond the Sword has slowed down. The Head Cybrxkhan is dealing with Real Life issues this week and Dutchking has left the team.

 

We are in need of anyone who can program XML, Python or SDK, but any help with art, graphics or sound would also be welcomed.

and gloryn, it is a culture game, not a military game, I have beaten the game before. The secret s to bulk units when attacking and defending, the tank shouldn't have lost if it was fortified, I have had my bad experiences when my persain marines landed on a beach in germany and all 5 of them were kill by pikemen. But hey, its a fun game and isnt as hard as you are saying.

(P.s download the mods for it if you find the normal game stupid)

Civ 3 is another achieving installment to its series and you'd think after Civ 2 and then the Test of Time Flop release; that you wouldnt want much else. Civ 3 is actually rather worth it for you TBS Civ gamers who love to warm their chairs for winter after sitting at a game for 16 frigging hrs to beat one scenario. There are quite a few new things in Civ 3 that change the scope of the game alil. First is that units have range now. If u have a Howitzer Division, u can actually bombard a city from several grids away. Same with the Battle Ship. Another lil' add on is Cities are virtualy limitless in size almost. instead of just growing up, the begin to sprawl out aswell within their radius. Adds to the game play mixture when ever you have several squares that our City instead of just one. Thoes are just a few triats the Mr. Sid added.
HOWEVER, much like Civ 1 and 2... and yeah even Test of Time counts... I wish Sid would watch a few War movies to learn how things works militarly. I simply do not See how Industrial Age RifleMen will get killed by Archers of the Classical Age type. Gets Worse when i had a SINGLE KNIGHT unit Besige ONE of my cities which was equiped and fortified with 2 TANKS, 3 Artillery pieces and 7 Riflemen. . . and yes ppl, the damn Knight Won! THAT was the last time i ended up playing them game. Even under Easiest the game has got the Stupidest F'ing stats to ever try and RESEMBLE Realism and so in my opinion; this game is better as a Sim City Empire Builder than a friggin military stratagy game. Its still agood Civ game, dont get me wrong; but u'll find urself cussing more than gloating.
