          DL!

          BTW, Cossacks is (indeed great but) REALTIME, not TURNBASED - you know this apples&oranges thingy?

            HOWEVER

            can't remember with civ2 but SMAC did have RTS. civ2 may have if you knew where to alter files. in any case, i don't think this is an apples and oranage comparison but a green apple-red apple comparison. close enough in my book.

              Yeah, you're right. I actually tried Red Alert as turn based. It was great! Didn't work with RA2 though...

                You can make Red Alert 1 turn-based?! Please, tell me how! Sounds awesome!

                    All you could have in Civ2 with some tricks was simultaneous unit movement during MP games, never in SP games with AI opponents so please donīt tell me that is nearly the same as RTS...

                      Cossacks is great, but Cossacks is RTS and Civilization 3 is TBS, so you shouldn't be comparing them, you should just buy them both. Don't know what American Conquest is, but it sounds crap, and clearly isn't based on any real events. Of course, I may have got the wrong end of the stick, if its a game about conquering, looting and pillaging America then it'll be great.

                        American Conquest?

                        Isnīt there a sequel or an expansion for Cossacks planned which plays in America? Not sure about that...

                            Huh? SMAC as an RTS? Did I miss something over the past few years or are you a dumb as you sound. Probably just stupid.

                              Civ as a RTS? Civ has always been, and always will be TBS,
                              no matter what sort of hacks or wrinkles you can put in the
                              engine; that's simply the basic structure of civ.

                              What is 'American Conquest' anyway? Historical RTS based on
                              US colonial expansion?
