I'm strange like that.
No, **** that. Civ V is so radically different that it's pointless to learn the old systems.

Maybe you should start with THIS instead to get the full scope of growth.

I started a new game because my last one turned into a cluster****....I had way too many units compared to everyone else...

Anyways, I chose random leader and got China, and that god damn Algonquin Indian kept asking me to side with him then he'd build cities right off my border. I finally had enough and wiped out all but 2 of his cities. I took over 3 of them and burned 2 of them. I already got his original Capitol. When I get back on tonight I'm going to eliminate him. I'm wanting to get to the Industrial Era or whatever, I really want railroads (and planes).

I wonder how they are going to do the planes. In Civ Rev, you have 2 moves to do shit then get back to your base or else you run out of gas and crash.

My favorite way to play Civ: maximum civilizations.

It's a hell of a ride when you've got 19 civilizations battling it out.

That worked fine in older Civ versions, but even with a 3.3GHz Quad core proc, 8 civs and various city states was unplayable by turn 600.

Okay that made me laugh.

Dude the funny thing is I did start with that. I'm 44 years old and can clearly remember playing pong on the kitchen TV. If we were feeling crazy we played squash which, IIRC, was pong with two paddles instead of one.

After a few months of that shit there was pong on that TV whether the Atari was plugged in or not.

Haha, yeah, I have similar memories.

I've played for about 60 hours total, and now all the sudden today I started crashing to desktop when I ended turn on the same save game, so I rebooted, and now I am crashing to desktop as soon as the old man movie at the beginning ends.

Anyone else have problems like that?

That's never happened to me...

So last night I decided to start up a 1 on 1 game and moved the clock to the fastest mode and started in the Renaissance Era. I played for like 5 hours and I'm barely in the 1900s. This game is super long, no matter what.

Looks like the crash on starting the game up was if I had background processes running that were taking up much memory, and updating my drivers seemed to help with it as well, but that saved game is still crashing right after I get a message that Bismark reached the industrial era, so I gave up on that game and started another and hope it doesn't happen again.


What is the process the rest of you follow for trying to deal with unhappiness? At first I was pretty much ignoring it other than trying to build some building for it as it was plausible, but then when I went to war at first and was annexing cities I was quickly stuck with like -20 happiness for a ton of turns and it killed my productivity through that stretch. So I started making puppets instead of annexing, and that helped some, but not enough, and now I'm starting to try to limit growth since so much of it was coming from population....but even with that my new game dipped down to -1 or so already. I'm not sure if I am just trying to expand too fast with settlers early on, or what. The settlers also royally piss off my neighbors and they typically declare war on me, but as long as one of my scouts got lucky and hit on some weapons upgrades to be archers I can kick their asses all over the place and just end up wiping out their cities with an archer and warrior.


Starting my first day back at work since getting it (and being off for 5 days), so now I will actually read the manual over for the first time.

Build lots of happy buildings, trade for luxuries, adopt policies that increase happiness.

For the happy buildings, sometimes I end up - in happiness before those types of buildings are even an option yet. Trading for luxuries seems to be a bit of an issue at times since there are so many times that just when I need it the most (in war) I end up losing them because the people that are my competitors are the ones that I would have been trading with, and the computer AI is so hard headed on wanting something like 4 of my luxiries for one of theirs, so I tell them to F off.

Do you just let your population go up on the default setting for the tiles to be worked?

What the hell? I have never even fallen under 9 happiness, and I am usually always above 20. You must be building like 5 cities from the get go...
