    ceasar wasn't really 3D...
    but if you don't actually have unit control, i suppose it's possible, low res, 16bit color

    Caesar and similar games were on the market before the Pentium was even heard of so it really depends on what level of graphical quality and speed you are going to need. The game mentions that the user does thier work setting up the strategic and tactical conditions for the battle and the unit movements are not under their control. That hands off approach, along with no need to show lots of flash explosions and other effects may well mean it can achieve some startling results especially if they have some boffins capable of crunching low level code.

    I'm reassured by the fact that they're signed up by Paradox. If the guys that made Europa Universalis reckon this game has potential then that is good news imo. I was a little too late to get in on the Beta but hopefully that will keep the game fresh for me. Overexposure to Civ 3 pre-release certainly didn't improve my enjoyment of the game.

    looks nice.. but this is hard to believe if they want to have 3D battles
    Our current target is a Pentium I with 32MB RAM, which is significantly lower than the competition!
    almost every other game with 3D has it at at least PII 466 64mb, and even then it doesn't run smooth...

    New empire-building game: LEGION

    check it out at http://www.slitherine.co.uk/Legion/Legion.htm

    It is a TBS game very similar to civ but entirely based on the period of the Roman empire. It looks very cool. It has nice graphics, including 3D battles but it also has a lot of very civ like strategy.
Working...
