      • Check the civ4 forum then. The Democracy game thread is almost on the bottom of the forum list.

        • Seems that Snoop is finalizing the teams, etc, so we need to formally annoint ourselves.

          I suggest that the Centaurian's team be (alpha list):

          Archaic
          binTravkin
          Blake
          Chaos Theory
          dmm1285
          ForesterSOF
          GeoModder
          Googlie
          Hercules
          Impaler[WrG]
          Jamski
          Kataphraktoi
          Lacero
          Maniac
          paramir
          PJayTycy
          Skanky Burns
          Vev
          Zufrix

          And that our leaders/mods be binTravkin and Googlie (although if anyone else want's to step to the plate they are welcome - I really am not playing Civ4 much now - for me, all the same disatisfactions as 3, ToT, CtP, RoN, etc gave, It's hard to top SMAC/X in my opinion - or even Civ2)

          But I'm happy enough to participate, roleplay, be gatekeeper if necessary, etc (and maybe I'll learn to love the game)

            • The forums will be set up in two days. That is enough time to confirm the list.

                    • It just doesn't have that "I must play just one more turn" feel that Civ 2 did, and that AC has to a certain extent.

                      I dislike how you are forced into war from the early game (too many civs for the map size, whatever map size one uses) - so much so that the infrequent times I do play I use the custom set-up to reduce the # civs - but even then the game setup just places them together, leaving great swathes of land unoccupied (and unreachable until later in the game)

                      I dislike the minutiae of the early units - the game for me doesn't really take off until riflemen, so that now when I do play I use the "Modern era" start choice.

                      I guess for some there is a thrill in the chariots versus catapults, but I just find that boring - If I wanted that I could play Age of Empires

                      And nothing (not even Smac) beats the thrill of Civ-2's full-bore drive to complete a finished spaceship and launching a few turns after the skeleton AI spaceships, to overtake them in the race for Alpha Centauri

                      Sure, it has some good features - a more robust AI (and some combinations of civs and their units working together are jaw-dropping). The eye-candy is nice, too. I like the inviolability of the borders, and the elimination of the Infinite City Sleaze.

                      But the test for me is if I hold off hitting "save game" regardless of the time, and Civ4 doesn't have that "pull" on me that a couple of others have. I have no desire to pull an "all-nighter" that I (still) have with Civ2 (and in all fairness, never have with smac or smax either)

                        Ah yes, I have similar memories.

                        Due to the sucky naval aspect I guess?

                        Anyway, from what I know about Civ4 I tend to agree with you. The game could have potential, but only after extensive modding.

                        • For a new SPACDG, may I suggest to use SMAniaC for the novelty value?
