I want to buy this so bad and have come so close to buying it on Steam so many times now... but I know if I buy it my life is pretty much over and I will just dwell in my room playing Civ 5 :(.

one strange thing is that it only appears to allow dx9 right now, and all the 2-8MSAA options are greyed out. the menu says dx10-11 is available with some sort of SP2?! very odd. many others are reporting this problem on the steam forums.

gameplay wise, the biggest difference is the hexagonal "squares" on the map. menus and production are much more streamlined and intuitive. animations are improved.

Never played a Civ game. I love Simcity, etc. but this isn't really that, correct? I'll see how I like it.

lol

found a fix for the dx10-11 issue: game was running in vista compatibility mode. :headexplode:

cranked up the setting in dx10, holy crap this game is a RAM hog.

weirdest gameplay feature so far is only getting to use one unit per game space... no more stacks of doom. :cool:

Mr. Hunt
09-21-10, 06:06 PM
Yeah, I definitely miss stacking units :(.

yeah, i keep trying to make my warriors share hexes but getting denied. :lol:

you may be able to stack artillery, though i have not tried yet. the combat system is much different, obviously, particularly with city defense.

you can read the manual online if you look for it.
