CIVILIZATION:CTP PREVIEW
IMPRESSIONS: MARKG'S DAYS FOUR

More playing, more notes...


The initial Diplomacy screen. I guess you can understand what is what.

The Attitude tab of the Intelligence screen. You can see which are the attitudes of each civ towards the others...

  • On each square you can have up to 9 units. This means a lot: a) Stacks can have up to 9 units. You can built a "super stack" with 20 units and take over the world with it. b) Each city can have up to 9 units in it. This means that if you have many units inside and outside a town and you're facing a big attack, you should be carefull on what you have inside and what outisde. c) You can move a unit to a square with 9 units. Sometimes, you'll have to build a couple extra roads to avoide "traffic jams" :)
  • While you're on battle view(it is really nice to sit back and watch the battle) the units appear as usual but with a small shadow too
  • There is no "Go To" command since practically all movement orders with the mouse are what the go to command was in civ2. You just click on the map and the units goes there. I still miss a "go to city X" command
  • There are lots of keyboard shortcuts and you can re-assign them all the time, but so far I find myself using the mouse all the time
  • You probably know that all units have walk animations. What is nice about it, is that while a unit moves, you can do something else at the same time(see another part of the map, see one of the screens, change the production of a city, etc)
