  • Civilization IV: Civilization Reference
    Martin Gühmann

    If you've been looking for a comprehensive, interactive reference tool for Civilization IV and its Warlods and Beyond the Sword expansion packs your wait is over. Apolyton Civilization Site staff member Robert "CyberShy" Plomp has exhaustively put together such a resource that comes in a general and unit-speicifc variety.

    Through an array of drop-down menus, mix and match combinations of particulars from the basics such as civilization and civics to particular buildings and bonuses on the 'General' sheet, and type through required technology with the 'Unit' document. Information is displayed in data-rich but easy-to-follow table format with colourful icons and pleasant shading.

    Should you any updates needed in future that have not been applied (e.g. as a result of one or more patches), contact Plomp directly.

    If you wanna comment on this please to so in the related forum thread Civ4 Interactive Series Reference Sheets.

  • Civ 4 the List: List of Threadmasters
    DarkCloud
    The List for Civ IV was a project that could not have been accomplished without the hard work and dedication of the many Threadmasters and ideas-finders on the forums. While idea-suggestors are likewise important, I have compiled here a list of the volunteers who went above and beyond the call of duty to take on the task of threadmastering a thread for the List. And here they are, alphabetically: Asmodean- Former Administrator of the List Azazel- Government and Social Engineering DarkCloud- Administrator; Civilizations, General, Scenario/Map Editor; List Formatter Fosse- The Polls Ixnay- Space Lajzar- Units MattH- Cheats Nikolai- AI, Resources, Terrain Octavian X- Wonders Platypus Rex- Regional and City Menus TechWins- Diplomacy Trifna- Movement/Supply, User Friendliness ...

  • Civ 4 the List: The Polls
    Fosse
    Introduction Realizing that some polls about hot topics have already left the top page, and that newcomers to the discussion seldom dig through the back pages in order to find out what's been discussed before, I've decided to compile a list of the Civ 4 List related polls. I've abandoned keeping a running talley of votes, as it's a great deal of work that is immediatley outdated, and if you really were interested in the results you would visit the poll and read the comments. Now... the polls: Stacked vs. Single Unit Combat: The Battle ContinuesShould units be stacked into "armies" that fight and operate as a single unit, or does moving them one at a time provide a boost to strategic considerations? Resources: How to HandleIs a system with stores and limits on resources a better simulation and more fun, or tedious micromangement? From Civ 3 to Civ 4More of the same, or a bold new direction for Civ 4? Squares, Hexes, Octagons... Pick your poison, the traditional Civ Map, traditional War Games map, or something else entirely. Eras in Civ 4?Is the new era system a great addition, or a stifling hindrance? Espionage & Assymetrical WarfareDoes Bond get his own unit? To 2000 AD or Beyond?Civ, From the Ancients to the Stars; or Civ, The Whole of Human History. {The List} United NationsA resolution for change... do you Veto? {The List} What Should Happen to Civ Traits?Should Civ 4 have homogenous Civs or even more differences? Terrain Improvements"Give me Workers, or Give me Death" vs "Micromagement Gives me Death." Nomads and ChiefdomsShould Civ 4 let us wander the great wide open? Civ 4 ideas - straights and canalsDo you want straigts? Or canals? Civ 4 idea: Armies instead of unitsOnce again, armies or single units? Health in Civ 4?Should we have sick Civs? Emphasis on AgeWhich historical era, if any, should get a boost in Civ 4? Civ 4 resistanceDo you want partisans from Civ 2? Resistors from Civ 3? Or something new for Civ 4? Fire and MovementHow should firepower and movement rates affect combat in Civ 4? Stacking Limits Y/NAssuming we have stacks, what sorts of stack limits should there be? Improved Poll: When should Civilization IV end?What is a good time for the game to end? Future Techs in Civ 4Which future era techs would you like in Civ 4? What ARE wonders, anyway?Well? What are they? Pollution Managers:Would you like Pollution Managment added to city screen? Tech Transmission Here is some food for thought from Civfanatics. -Respectfully Compiled by Fosse...
