I wonder if they've got any plans to cut down on the power of the ol' Stack of Doom. Although, tbh, I'm not sure how much I really want to see complicated war mongering in Civ. The series already has an awful lot going on.

You know, I've always thought that cultural domination is one of the most fun ways to play the game. I hope they provide new options for that!

Also, I kind of expected by now that they'd have the ability to expand large cities out of the one-square size.  Like, to throw out suburbs and such once you hit a certain tech and pop level.  It'd be an added challenge, because you'd have to weigh up the benefits of the extra population it could sustain with expanding over the top of services like farms and such.

That would be a decent feature. I'd also like to see the leveling up feature expanded a bit, possibly to include purchasing upgrades as well, or things that give a big bonus but some detriment.

And the hex grid looks beautiful, but it does mean that the number of surrounding tiles is cut by two.

And I want that view city feature that was in Civ III but not IV. I always went for culture and turtling over conflict, mostly because I blew at it, and that view that crammed all the buildings and wonders onto the screen was really pretty. IV's really close zoom in just didn't cut it for me after that.

Cut by two?  What do you mean?  I thought Civ had used square tiles up until this point, meaning that this would add two neighbouring squares.

edit: ah, it's a square, but you can move diagonally, right?  Hmm.

Among other things, the physical distance you can cover with a given amount of steps is more accurate.

This is because with hexagons, no matter which direction you pick, you will move the same distance.

With squares, if you move toward one of the corners you actually move sqrt(2s^2), which is a little farther than the s you move if moving horizontally or vertically.

With this hex map, a builder can enjoy more proactive defensive strategies, while a warmonger can completely divide an enemy state with a few well-placed infantry. I imagine, in play, this will result in some significant battles taking place outside of cities, which would be a major step forward IMO.

Yep. That's why a diagonal square counted as roughly 1.5 squares in 3.X D&D. With that said, it's not really a big deal in small scale games though, which is why they just said screw it and went 1 for 1 in 4th Edition. After all, that game isn't really about logistics and grand strategy-- any advantage the players can gain through using the faster diagonal movement is largely counteracted by monsters being able to do the same, and where you finish the fight rarely has a big impact on how you're going to play the rest of the campaign. But for a game like Civ, hexes are pretty welcome, since Civ often comes down to collecting interest on small advantages over a large number of turns.

Bumping this topic for a good ol' fashioned infodump.

First, there's this IGN article. The combat stuff is mostly already known, but there's some new info on how the interface and AI work that I found interesting. Also, the game will now automatically populate the map with neutral city-states that are more like mini-Civs than barbarians. They won't work towards any victory conditions, so they're mostly there to negotiate with/crush as you like. They also talk about the leaders and their backdrops, which makes me wonder whether I'll get to see Montezuma in a suit like in Civ 3.

There's also a Eurogamer interview here, but there's very little information about the game in it. Who knows why, maybe the interviewer was too interested in his own cleverness like Eurogamer tends to be. You get a chance to talk to the lead designer of the next Civilization game and you piss most of it away talking about fanfiction and whether the game is educational, what the fuck is wrong with you?

Finally, somebody in the SA thread for this game collected all the confirmed Civs and known leaders in a list.

Germany - Bismark
China - Wu Zetian
America - Washington
Japan - Nobunaga
Arabia - Harun al-Rashid
Mongolia - Genghis Khan
Rome - Julius Caesar
France - Napoleon
England - Elizabeth
India - Gandhi
Ottomans - Suleiman
Inca - Leader unknown (Probably Huayna Capac)
Aztec - Montezuma
Songhai - Askia
Russia - Catherine
Egypt - Ramesses II

There are 18 Civs in total, so we still don't know 2. It's pretty likely that the Greeks are one, considering they were one of the original 'untouchable' Civs, but the last one is anyone's guess. Some people are theorizing that they'll do another African Civ, probably the Zulu since putting both Mali and Songhai in would be kind of redundant. I'm a little disappointed that multiple leaders per Civ is gone, but since every leader has unique traits and a full model now maybe that would be more complicated. Oh well, I'm sure there will be inevitable expansions for that.

Cool. I particularly like the cap on units based on what resources you have available, since presumably they could make resource tiles a touch more common while still keeping a check on army sizes. The distance between your starting city and the nearest copper reserve was far too important in Civ IV, especially in the early patches. I'm as likely to try to go for a cultural, space or political victory as I am to war monger, so I'd definitely be willing to bear a unit cap provided I have better than even odds of acquiring crucial resources.

If Alpha Centauri is available for Mac, get that.

Otherwise Civ 4's okay. I stand by Civ 2, though. The music, and the civ advisors, has never been better. Every civ game (minus Alpha Centauri, I think) has had a weird, sort of annoying design flaw in its combat. Lately they've all made turtling super powerful.

Depends on what you're looking for. In terms of war, Europa Universalis 3 is super, super dense but very thorough and realistic. In terms of ease of use and accessibility, and to some degree flexibility in how you play, Civ is up there.

I really like and suggest the Total War series.  Buy Total War : Rome, it's like $5.  If you like that, explore your options.  There are also tons of mods for TW: Rome and it's successors that improve graphics, add campaigns, etc.  Some are actually better than the developer campaigns.

I am playing Empire TW at the moment and hardly ever playing the battles, turning it into a sort of 4X light.  Some battles I'll play though, like when I am defending a fortified city with two squads of home guard troops because people have come out of nowhere and caught me unawares.  Then I need them to intelligently man the cannons and all that shit, but mostly simming the battles turns out alright.

Age Of Empires 1 and 2 are fuccin great games. Unit control can be a hassle in big battles in 1, but slowing the game down during fights and up during gathering always works for me. Both have stories completely based on history or archaeology - real battles and real wars, where number 3 is about some knight from Sicily going to America after the fountain of Youth.

If you want to play the AoE games, don't go backwards. Either start with 1 or don't play it at all, because simple things like an idle worker search button and being able to queue production of different types of units, not to mention gates, are essential once you've spent more than an hour with them at your disposal.

They're all great though, even 3.

And if you want to play a large game with lots of macroing I recomend Dominions 1-3. Don't get discurege by the "crapy" graphics.

I always kinda saw that as a good thing, tbh. If you could just set a couple of priorities to "MAXIMUM RESOURCES!!!" and win consistently that'd be sorta lame. The difference between a mediocre civ player and a good one is the ability to know just how much you need to compromise the big picture victory condition to meet basic needs and to thrive in the short term. I mean, hell, I won a cultural victory last week in which I decimated or outright destroyed 3 other civs. Needed to steal me some wonders.

- Behind the Scenes at Firaxis with Civ V video feature
- Game Soundtrack

Also, not sure if it matters for anyone here, but Civilization IV complete is $10 right now.

Due to my eager pounce upon the pre-order, I accidentally ordered the normal version before realizing the DX even existed. Hopefully Steam is okay with me giving them $10 more and lets me correct it.

Fuck that; $80 US for the regular and $90 for the pre-order over here in Australia.

Nope, not buying that. Not from Steam anyway, I'll probably grab a boxed copy off of ebay or PlayAsia. Shit, I could probably get it for that price at JB Hifi in town.

I am pretty certain that you can make a US account for Steam actually and use all your normal information. I know it was a work around UK folks were using to not get screwed on prices for a while.
