  • the art of Civilization

    Hi fellow civ addicts! This is my first post. While I'm quite interested in gameplay and tips and the like (thanks to your posts I've already figured out how to do some things in Civ III which had baffled me) I'm also interested in other aspects of the game.
    I wanted to ask about your reactions to the design, graphics and at times sheer artistry of the games. Each has its own style - are their any particular games which you overall think beautiful, and why? Likewise, are there any individual aspects of any of the games which you think are especially visually appealling?

    I can think of a couple of examples: One, in the first game, the very simple graphic of waves lapping on the shore. Two, in Civ III the opening sequence where the geese fly over the river (I'm guessing that's done by a different company) and in the game proper the wooden ships, the frigates in particular.

    Welcome sir!

    I'm a big fan (as are many) of the opening music in Civ4...

    I like your SNOOPY POSTER! - While you Wait quote.

      I still think the opening intro movie to Civ4 vanilla is one of the greatest of all time.

        The game card consists of square tiles on a grid. Each city, land improvement, and the unit is located in a specific tile, and each tile can host an unlimited number of units. Terrain tiles can contain a transportation improvement (road or railroad) and terrain enhancement (farm or mine) or a city. Cities must be built at least one tile apart, that is, no city can touch each other. Each tile is made up of a particular type of terrain which determines, among other things, the amount of food, production, and trade it produces when it is "worked", according to what tile can only be worked if it is one of the twenty tiles surrounding a city. A tile can only be worked by one city at a time, and each city can only work a number of tiles equal to or less than its population.
