Anybody still playing this game around here ? Just got this in the mail...

Announcing the new expansion pack too :rolleyes:




Great news! Firaxis Games has just released a new update for Sid Meier’s Civilization III that’s loaded with additions to the game editor, cool new game functions and some tweaks to gameplay that further enhance the already great game you've been enjoying for months. Here’s a sampling of what you’ll find in the update:

Ability to place units and cities on the map in the Editor
Ability to create new technology advances, units, city improvements/wonders and civilizations in the Editor
Minimap and Zoom in the Editor
Ability to selectively import elements from one scenario into another.
Addition of the Accelerated Production rule which doubles research, population and production growth
Addition of the Fortify All and Wake All options

The Civ III development team is so excited about the editor enhancements that they’ll be scanning fansites looking for cool player created content to include in the Civilization III:Play The World expansion due to release this Fall. So, create your dream Civ III scenario and you could be a part of history!

Here’s the link to download the update: http://www.firaxis.com/downloads_detail.cfm?file_id=58

We’re working hard to continue to make your civ experience the best it can be. Have fun with it.

Happy Civing!

The Team at Firaxis Games

I was wondering if the patch improved the game, or just the editor... Gamespot had announced the patch was coming, and ran a bit of a countdown to it.

20-07-2002, 08:01:12
Actually there's been 3 patches before that update if I counted them right (1.16, 1.17 and 1.21)

20-07-2002, 09:02:37
3? I remember 1.17 and 1.21. Was 1.16 the Production release? Or the Patch that had to be patched?

At least it's not and enchantment. :D

20-07-2002, 09:32:02
As long as there is no multiplayer I won't bother to reinstall it.

20-07-2002, 09:39:55
The MP is a pay for patch, Fist. You know that.

20-07-2002, 09:48:35
I know. And I'll even consider buying it if it's good.
As it is though SP is boring and no patch can change that.

You posted this at ACOL, didn't you!!!!

Sadly, I was there and replied :D

26-07-2002, 16:03:01
I'm gonna go over there and read it. Just to make sure.

26-07-2002, 20:08:10
OK, but be careful.

Scanning fansites to release an expansion pack that you have to pay for. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

No fucking wonder they are excited. Here is there job iternerary everyday:

Get to work around 11 or 12, eat lunch, down a few cold ones while doing the "research" After about an hour or so of research, or when lunch is over, play favorite online game or whack of to porn on some ultrafast connection depending on mood. After a few hours, take shit, fudge time sheet and head home to drink more beer.

Another installment of the Firaxians is clearly in order :).

(BTW, I did submit a mod to them, and I friggin' hope they'll include it :D)

My brother's visited quite a few game companies, as a guest...Tripp, you have no idea how close you are to the truth...

Well I can see coming into work at noon after the hangover wears off a bit and surfing the net for mods to include (since they obviously can't figure out how to use their secnario builder (or C plus code for that matter :) )), then play games or dl mp3's the rest of the day, fudge the timesheet and go home and get drunk. Repeat daily as needed until totally inept addon is released.

21-08-2002, 10:10:37
Sounds like a perfect work schedule. Where do we apply? I can write really crappy code, if I try hard. :D

21-08-2002, 15:57:42
Yes, but could you sleep at night knowing you had deliberately delivered crap to the consumer :)

If he was drunk enough.

22-08-2002, 00:51:07
He, if the requirements is, crappy code to confuse the customer, I can deal with that. So long as my salary is big enough. And look at the benefits!

If my conscious bothers me, I'd just go join some Freeware development project. :D

The benefits being you don't have to work, just supervise the monkeys at the computers. Correct? :)

28-08-2002, 05:52:52
Monkeys at computers? No way. We use anteaters. Lower maintainance costs...
