Hexagonal tiles?

Hexagonal tiles!!!

I'm sold, even though I never have the patience anyway.

Civ series were never for people with an interest spine of a goldfish. I started with civ2, skipped civ3 as I don't recognize it as a part of civ, loved 4th edition and will probably check out the numero cinque.

Some news regarding CIV5

"This is the year of Civ" - Sid Meier
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/this-is-the-year-of-civilization-says-meier

Quote
"But looking further out, there's so much energy and dynamism in this industry... Every day there's something new, and that's a big part of being excited about being in games," he added.

Quote
According to Meier, new platforms such as Facebook and Xbox Live have opened up new gaps in the market. "It's a really cool time to be a game designer. We've certainly seen the indie games movement put a lot of new energy into gaming," he said. "The whole big budget thing has gone away and that's opened up a whole lot of new opportunities."

What do you guys think of the new non-stacked units feature? I think (unless they've changed it) that you can now only have 1 unit per hex so you have to lay out your battle lines properly with missile troops being able to shoot over the front hex/rank. Intriguing but I don't think the Civ terrain is big enough to try and simulate battles like this.

They're going in the right direction I must say but I'm as well quite uncertain how it will work with the CIV layout

Anyhow, can't believe how good CIV5 looks from the screenshots

I'd be sold if they had put in some sort of Total War battle system. As for now, Civ games have always bored me. Same with games like Anno1404, great game at the start, but without some proper action it will eventually get bored and I couldn't possibly end a game.
I'll check it out, but it'll take a lot to get me into it.  :-X

Yeah, well. Civilization is a drug.

Once you get hooked you are fucked :D

Remember the Civaholics video they released before the release of Civilization IV?

Check this out!

Ive played civilization since civ1 on amiga 500, 20 years ago...
Ditto...ah, the good old Amiga days, back when you had to wait for the intro movie to play through while the world was generating... :)

I'm looking forward to Civ V, it'll be interesting to see how the hex-tiles and new combat system affect gameplay.


...Though the game i would really really like to be remade is...

ALPHA CENTAURI


Well they gave Colonization a graphical spit 'n polish and re-released it, so why not?

Civ 4 is fun, I still remember playing as Romans and pwn people with my Unique Unit. They just don't believe their eyes when they have only like 2 archers defending their towns against my horde.

Apart from that serious balance issue with Romans, I don't particularly hated the Civ 4 combat system, you just need to bring some catapults/trebuchets to win. It is more a trouble fighting an AI, sometimes.


I am not very optimistic on hexagonal tiles, I think squares fits better in human brains. (it is impossible to construct a stuff with simple shape with merely hexagons.
