C:CTP Release Party; March 30th, 1999


[PrecursoR] so...for all the programmers...where did you learn to code games?
[Bilbo] What's the deal with multiplayer, is it going to be a battlenet type setup? How many players can play at once?
[Necro] xenisis, I can't tell you.
[WesternFederation] calm down guys
[tweaker] no great and yes
[Wagmister] Is the AI good? I mean really good? Better than DEITY mode on Civ 2?
[haelyn] what about the nukes will their be radiation instead of just cleanable pollution?
[STING] People, pls wait for previous questions to be answered
[Necro] Wagmister, AI is really good. Designers have a hard time on Deity level!
[LTJohn] Bilbo- multiplayer has a free matchmaking service like Bnet. 4 players at once, with up to 4 AI opponents as well
