    Do you Ever Move Your First Settler?

    An interesting article at The Escapist about Civilization and some of the goings-on behind the scenes at Firaxis:

    http://www.escapistmagazine.com/arti...s-Civ-V-Studio I have a lot of problems with the methods Firaxis tested this with.

  • Civilization 5 gets into the Steam Workshop

    Civilization 5 gets into the Steam Workshop

    The Steam Workshop comes to Civilization 5. The Steam Workshop replaces the Civ5 in-game mod selection feature for everybody whether you have installed Gods and Kings or not. The Steam Workshop does not only allow you to browse the available mods in-game but also when you are not running the game from the Steam Workshop Website. There you can find a mod you really like and check out what the author else made, and follow the author to see what else the author will release in the future.
