    • Civilization 2: Info
      by Martin Gühmann
      This is where you will find lots of information on the Civilization II series, for the beginner, amateur and pro. To begin with, for those of you who are interested in submitting something of yours that you believe would be useful to CivII gamers such as yourself, please comment here. Introduction Civilization II is the sequel to the classic game Civilization. In Civilization and its sequel, in the beginning you rule over a tiny, nomadic tribe. It is your task to bring this puny settler away from its primitive past to control an empire that spans the globe, hopefully sometimes launching a space craft to reach and colonize a nearby star. Of course, in the process you have to found cities, control diplomatic relation with other civilizations, research technology, create, train, and command a hopefully elite army, build wonders of the world, pave roads, plant farms, mine mines, lay fortresses, and plan your cities to become glittering marvels recongnized for millenia. We hope you will find this page useful in your journey to building the ultimate civilization. You may ask, how is CivII different from the original? Well, Civ2 makes a great game better. Civ2 keeps all the aspects of the original, modernizes them, adds video and better graphics, and puts in some more technologies and aspects to the game. There are more diplomacy options, new wonders of the world such as Leonardo's Workshop, new units like Stealth Bomber and Paratrooper, and new city improvements like Coastal Fortress. If you liked Civ, you'll find this one just as addicting as the original. Below are some information packages we have gathered from various resources, all together in one convienient place. With a click- and-easy download, you'll learn all the tools of the trade from all angles. Units & Wonders of the World You are now able to read about and view (Courtesy of The Civilization II For The Macintosh Page) the various units and Wonders of The World found in CivII. Below we have a table which will link you to the various page resources we now have online. Hope you will find them useful, for the newbie and accompished CivII'er in all of us. Civilization 2: Units Civilization 2: Wonders of the Ancient World Civilization 2: Wonders of the Renaissance Civilization 2: Wonders of the Industrial Age Civilization 2: Wonders of the Modern World Screen Shots See the index below if you would like to check out the Apolyton's collection of Screenshots of Civilization II, just in case you haven't had a chance before to see what the game looks like, or you're just curious. We are accepting screen shots from our Site visitors, so if you have one (or two), please send it our way. If you know what the original Civilization looked like, you just might surprise yourself with the improvements in the game display! Civilization 2 Screenshots Civ2: Fantastic Worlds Screenshots Civ2: Multiplayer Gold Edition(preview) Screenshots Civ2: Test of Time(preview) Screenshots "Conflicts in Civilization" Scenario CD MicroProse recently released the "Conflicts in Civilization" Scenario CD, with 20 scenarios in all -- 12 new scenarios created by the MPS Staff (will not be available for download off the Internet for a long time, if ever, [at least, not legally]) plus 8 scenarios comprising the "Best of The Net", to give the CivII gamers what they're missing on the Internet in the way of custom creations for Civilization II. The UCIVII Site will soon have an in-depth review of the 12 new scenarios from MPS, as well as some of the changes it makes to the game as a whole (it updates your copy of CivII to version "civ262" patch). 12 *new* scenarios that come with the CD are not available on the Internet and they were created by MPS' talented staff. They are: After the Apocalyspe Age of Discovery The Age of Napoleon Alexander the Great Alien Invasion American Civil War The Crusades The Great War Jihad: The Rise of Islam The Mongol Horde The War for Independence World War: 1979 "Civ2: Fantastic Worlds" Scenario CD Fantastics Worlds was released on November 1997. It has 19 scenarios with lots of new graphics and some new units. Probably the best scenarios are Atlantis, Mars and Midgard. But the most important new feature are the editors. There are eleven editors for cities, effects, events, icons, improvements, sounds, advances, terrains, tribes and for units! See Microprose's page for FW....
