  • Scenario's?

    Has anyone ideas for civ 3 scenarios?

  • #2
    -Prehistoric
    -Ancient
    -Medieval (china/japan/europe)
    -Renaissance
    -Age of Discovery
    -Voyage of Magellan (surefire hit!)
    -Age of Colonization
    -Modern Era
    -Futuristic

    Within each bullet there are innumbrable ideas for scenarios. With the exception of poor Magellan

      I hope that the create-your-own-units part is easy to learn

        I would hope there is in easy way to convert existing civ2 scenarios with minimal adjustments. Then the next step would be to go through those and find ones where the new features add the most to gameplay - think clearly it is in the scenario world where civ attributes can actually add benefits. Culture and trade could also be very interesting for some.

        If no easy way to convert than it will be a matter of creating new scenarios from scratch, using concepts (in some cases) from existing scenarios.

        Much depends on the nature of scenario tools, events and triggers,etc.

        I must say that at the moment the uncertainty has impacted my own scenario projects. I have never developed a scenario, and was about to start. At this point it doesnt seem to make sense to learn with the possibility of major changes. Instead i am writing a tech description file for an exisiting scen. that would be readily transferable to civ3, and the historic research skills are generalizeable.

          There's already an extensive thread on this subject at:
          http://apolyton.net/forums/showthrea...0&pagenumber=1

          We'd love input on any of the scenarios posted there including one proposed by a Fireaxian. Tell us what you think...

            I’ve made several personal scenarios in civ2, I intend to re-create them in civ3 and maybe release it for a wider public.
            The problem is that I won’t have a library of suitable art at hand in the beginning so I hope the more advanced graphics won’t deter many people from creating new art.

              Every some months the same question emerge from the dark, deep sea of our missing info about Civ III

              Then, just in case someone missed it and really need to know, repost an old classic of mine: The Mostly Pacific Scenario list.

              Once again, I post here my humble suggestion I already wrote on the CTP II forum about the same subject; I left some reference about CTP II proposal, just for history (new name of lazyness ).

              I see almost every proposed scenario focused on war. While I agree that fighting (in games) can be very fun, I think that limiting CIV III as a wargame is not making great use of its engine.

              I support ideas as Cold War, Napoleon, or after Nuclear exchange Fallout-like, still I would like to see some scenario where war is not the main backbone.

              Just to suggest some themes:

              1) run to the Moon (discover the needed tech on appropriate tech tree, with or without other countries help, and having enough production points for enough time).
              It could be a variant of the Build the starship to Alpha Centauri, but starting right in modern era (after WWII).

              2) italian renaissance (some little states deeply involved in trade, diplomatic move and limited fights, while arts and sciences grow to industrialization)

              3) age of explorations (some limited and dedicated exporer units must survey - and survive to native encounter - every square of the globe)

              4) save the earth (quickly solve a scenario where production is growth so high that pollution is almost out of control. Tune down production, improve eco-enhancement, clean up polluted area and save the world from global warming, trading and treating with less developed country to join your efforts). Added difficult: manage a (insert your opinion as adjective here) USA leader that don't care of world pollution as if he'll live on Mars ten years from today

              5) world peacekeeping (stop every war using diplomacy, money or - as a last resource - your U.N. peacekeeping forces - in a defined turn limit, with the limit to free back every city you conquer in a few turns - you can't conquer the world just to force the peace)

              May be my suggestion are a bit crazy and have some limits to be implemented in an interesting way, but I would like to suggest a different point of view about common (war) scenario approach.

                4 and 5 sound fairly good

                  Mostly Pacific Scenarios my ass. We all know what Civ is intended for. WAR! If the people want war, give them war, not some crappy "renaissance."

                  WAR!

                  WAR!

                  WAR!

                        Just because you do this doesn't make it a good call

                          of course your entitled to your own opinion, even if its the wrong one.

                            Aw come on Isaac, I'm sorry if I've insulted you... that was not my intention. I'm only human, and I couldn't resist ruffling your fur a bit - we're ALL on the same side here, hopeing that CIV3 will be one of the greatest of all time stategy games...but you ARE right though, we all (to a certain extent) have our own hopes and fears about the final product. Still friends? or at least fellow forum members?

                              Hey, It looks like homosexual anti-semitic slave-owning child molestors are quite welcome to their own opinion too.
