We now have ALL the Civ2 MGE scenarios!

By | May 28, 2022

Our user blake00 has finished his heroic effort to collect all the Civ2 MGE scenarios. As you can imagine, this was no easy task. He searched the internet for endless hours, to provide the civfanatics with all the playing material out there. But now he has finished it! He has uploaded the grand amount of 378 scenarios plus another 7 bigger collections to our database. There now seem to be only 7 scenarios missing, which might be forever lost.

If you want to delve into this treasure of Civ2 material, then check out his thread here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/civ2-mge-tot-scenario-mod-preservation-project-log-378-processed-7-super-collections.671035/

The picture here displays 4 of the last scenarios to be uploaded:

The example here is random, and obviously non-exhaustive, given that we have 378 scenarios and cannot cover all. But if you have the time, you should check out the link above and see if there is something which is to your taste :).

And at last: Thanks blake00 for your work, this is great to have all these gems here.

Kotaku: Old World Is The Best New 4X Game In Years

By | May 26, 2022

The video game website Kotaku has just released a news article, which describes in its headline Old World as “The Best New 4X Game In Years”. An excerpt from the article below:

I said simply calling this “Civilization x Crusader Kings” was unfair not because it’s technically wrong—five minutes with this game will show you that’s the case—but because it sells the final product short. Old World is so much more than just bolting one game’s popular system into another genre and hoping for the best.

Old World actually feels pretty closer to those older, near-perfect Civ spin-offs like Colonization and Alpha Centauri. Games that took the basic 4X formula and repackaged it into a shorter, more focused setting which swapped out the passing of ages for some more interesting mechanics. In Colonization that meant turning tobacco into cigars and sending them back to Europe. In Old World it’s managing an ancient empire through not just roads and farms, but family ties as well.

You can read the full article here and discuss with us in our forum here.

Old World is available on the big distribution platforms, you can find the relevant links below:
