    I want to join this team as well
    I'll be ever so well behaved unless instructed.

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

    Ah yes, I have similar memories.

    leaving great swathes of land unoccupied (and unreachable until later in the game)
    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.

    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)

    I don't play Civ4, but I'd join the DG.

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

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

    Aye and I have to drop out due to the fact I'll lose access to computer that can run Civ4.
