  • Comprehensive Feature List in Conquests

    Well, since much information is scattered here and there, I thought it was good to compile it all in one place. This is a comprehensive review of all new features in C3C that we know of.

        Here.

        I thought about bumping it, but I understood that the two not-yet-included leaderheads are still nameless. We still don't know who'll be the Mayan leader, and who'll be the Incan Leader

            There are 2 more confirmed Scenarios. The first is the “Age of Sail.”

            “the Age of Sail, in which you'll play either as an explorer from an Old World country intent on conquering the New World, or as an indigenous nation who must repel the European invaders. The conquests feature a huge variety of new technological advances and bonuses that are unique to each one, such as sacrificial altars that benefit the Native Americans in the Age of Sail.”

            Here’s the link.

            http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/...w_6073788.html

            The second is a Roman Era scenario. There is no writing about it, but you can clearly see it in the screenshots.

                PLATO... thanks for the PM asking to have this thread topped. I agree with you on that.

                However, in the future, when you are asking about or want something done to a thread... Please provide a link to make it easier

                  It would almost be worth your time to make a Ming graphic with that phrase.

                  Almost.

                  Does this thead cover the stuff in the MZO thread too? I wasn't sure if you and PanzerXXXII were coordinating efforts...........

                    Actually, absolutely not. I got the idea after reading LouLong's thread at CivFanatics (this is not a copy of his thread), but I wasn't aware there was such a thing at MZO too.

                    I'll see about it (and probably will contact PanzerXXXII) tomorrow. Now it is really time for bed )

                      The new small boat is a curragh, not a corragh. The Gamespot review had a spelling error there.

                          Thanks everyone for the heads up. I've upgraded the first post, and I have begun working on a table with all the new improvements.

                          I remember having seen an article featuring many Sengoku buildings. Does anybody know the link to it ? Thanks

                          And btw Kaos, did you see that in the new article, Communication Trading and Map Trading has been finally pushed back ? That's great ! I play with these rules for ages, and it really makes the ancient and early medieval eras more interesting

                            Random World sizes should be changed to "visible random world sizes"

                            Try clicking right below "huge" and you'll see what i mean

                              Sweet, this will make the world exploration, more like it was in Civ2. And more challenging.

                              Also, check out the 'GS' impressions. It looks like 4 new City Improvements, the only one I can recognize is the old-style Windmill.

                              Then there is the cool looking priest/ monk unit, reading from the book. Hmm.....is this guy, just another soldier? I don't think so, there must be some new ability for this guy. Of course, this is all speculation.

                              But I'm still waiting for UNIT TRADING!!!
