Steampunk Civ

Today I would like to talk about a mod thats been out for Civ for a while now but I never got into it. A couple of days ago I decided to give it a go and I loved it. The game ideas and mechanics are changed quite a lot but they make sense and are still amazing. I love all the customized units such as land icon lands are the air balloons. It makes the game feel so much more interesting.

Winning the game is a bit different than in a usual civ game, instead of winning a science victory by going to Alpha Centauri or winning a Domination Victory by conquering all the Capital cities in the world, here in the steampunk mod you win victories by owning the most units or generating the most gold in a period of time, its pretty nice in my opinion.

I recommend you to give it a try and I think you’ll like it.



What to do in a Modern Era War

In the modern era it is crucial to win wars, if you lose your production science money and culture go down and eventually you’ll enter in a position that you get destroyed or at the brink of losing the game. So in the modern battlefield of the civilization gameplay, what should you do.

First you have to choose the right social policies which give you military advantages second you need a handful of units. So what unit should it be. In my opinion it are tanks and artillery. Although these units are far not the best units in the game they are still quite powerful and cheap to make. So what you can do is build them in mass production and even though you don’t have the most powerful units tanks are agile and quick and artillery have a good range and  are powerful against cities.

So if you are in a modern war build these units in mass production and you are the offensive killer machine.

Civ 5 notifications updates

It used to be when a notification pop’t up like technology or of wonder buildings that this text or image would open up and you had to close it.

Now with the new update it is like a normal notification (city states national agreements etc)… Where you can exit your notifications by right clicking on the icon. It might not be a major update but it sure is nice because it is now much faster to complete you’r turns.

Here are some image examples of what you get with the new update.

Interesting civ5 update

A new update came to civilization 5 just a few days ago and I found a very nice update that can help you manage your civ easily especially if you are starting your game in the renaissance era because most of the time you start with more units than your empire can manage and if you don’t recognize that you might come in crises. So the way that civ fixes this is through the menu bar.

the warning

If you look closely you can see there is a red icon with a explanation mark on there. This icon informs you about if you’r civilization has over capacity of units. So you can quickly change you’r capacity of units and make sure you don’t go into crises. Hope this help’s you.


A tip for old fans

For the ones who still play civ 3 but don’t know any cheats or tips this post and few upcoming posts will help you beat your game easier.

Today I want to cover a handy tip which many people know as the block the island move. What you do is you surround your hole island shores (beaches) with any type of unit you want! Enemies or neutral civi scouts can’t get on your land… Until they got the marines but for a pretty big chunk of the game you are well deafened unless someone joined you on your island.
