Civilization Revolution: Great People
By Thunderfall at 2008-07-20 22:17

School of ConfuciusCivilization Revolution has six different types of Great People that provide special abilities upon their appearance. The six types are Great Artist/Thinker, Great Builder, Great Humanitarian, Great Explorer/Industrialist, Great Leader, and Great Scientist.

Every type of great people can do two things. The first is a one-time immediate bonus, which will consume the great person. Some examples of one time bonuses are instant completion of a wonder and increase population of all your cities. The second use is settlement bonus, which provides the host city benefits such as reduced building cost, experience for newly created units, and culture/science bonus. Note that only the great people settled in cities count toward cultural victory.

Civilization Revolution: Reviews
By jwhutchi at 2008-07-15 22:50
Since the release of Civilization Revolution, numerous reviews have appeared on the web. In this reviews section, we have compiled all the major reviews for the game. Many reviews praised CivRev for its intuitive controls, colorful graphics, and also for being the most accessible version of Civilization yet. Some negative points raised include highly aggressive AI, few player customization options, and not as deep as the PC versions. But overall, most reviews are favorable and consider the game to be one of the best strategy games for the consoles. The average rating is in the mid 80s.

The reviews are ordered by rating in descending order.

How to Win on Deity Builder-Style, step-by-step.
By Drakan at 2008-07-02 13:04

This article is thought for C3C v 1.22

This article is devised to help deity Noobs or deity wannabes to win confidently on this level as builders. I take for granted you already know basic concepts such as settler-factories, REXing, Prebuilds, trading reputation, AI attitude, Golden Age etc … if you don’t, look them up in the strategy articles section or in the War Academy at CFC.

On Deity the AI has a series of “play balancing” bonuses from the start, such as:

- They start with an extra settler (their biggest advantage IMHO)
- with 8 defensive units

Civilization Revolution: Technologies
By GGrayson at 2008-06-30 18:09

This page organizes all the researchable technologies in Civilization Revolution into a table that highlights their cost in beakers, their various effects and what they enable, as well as the bonus they provide to the first civilization to research them. These bonuses can often be quite powerful, usually in the form of a free unit, building, or extra per turn output in a city. Keep in mind that under the Makes Available header, items are listed in the following order: resources, wonders, units, buildings, governments. While some technologies, like currency and navigation, enable multiple things, others, like Printing Press, are less substantial. Together, however, they form the technology tree in Civilization Revolution.

Air Combat in BtS Explained

Air combat explained
This is my attempt to clarify how air units works. Please point out any erros and I'll try to remedy them. I don't even mind you spelling out any errors in my english (pun intended), in fact I appreciate it, but I do have one request: please do NOT clutter this thread with "air combat in Civ4/BtS sucks, it should work this way", not even if you have a valid argument based on realism, gameplay or common sense. Those discussions belong in another thread, this one is about the mechanics that are in place, and how you use those efficiently! Just to be efficient, I've started another thread for this very purpose where I outline some complaints I have.

The article is split into two parts, first I go through the mechanics of air combat without too many conclusions. I will also include a couple of examples to illustrate.

Civilization Revolution: Units
By Ginger_Ale at 2008-06-12 16:36

Civilization Revolution contains a wide variety of units, including land, sea, and air ones. Unlike Civilization 4, CivRev returns to the convention of assigning each unit a specific attack and defense value; however, it also keeps Civ4's system of promotions and combat modifiers, blending the features from previous Civilization games. Units in this game have been made stronger and more powerful as individual fighting forces and are certainly integral to a successful game, not just those that end in a domination victory. For more, be sure to read this page which overviews units and their role in the game.

Civilization Revolution: Relics
By Thunderfall at 2008-05-11 12:10

Civilization Revolution introduces a new class of wonder-like structures called "relics" that are scattered randomly throughout the map for players to find. There are six relics in the game and each of them offers unique bonus to its discover. They should make exploration more rewarding.

Bushido - The Use of Samurai
By Diamondeye at 2008-05-08 11:47
Disclaimer: I, in no way, claim to be a player capable of Emperor+ games. This article is meant mostly to the players playing Monarch and below.

Spoiler for Authors note - Bushido and Samurai:
"Bushido" is japanese and means "The Way of the Warrior". It was a codex that all samurai followed in order to have their honor intact.

"Samurai" is the name of the medieval Japanese warrior caste, and is deprived from the japanese verb, "to serve".

The impression most of us have of Tokugawa of Japanese is, to be honest, a ridiculous AI leading a rather mediocre nation. The reason to this is that the Japanese civilization has absolutely no economic traits or uniques (unless counting the rather late-game Shale Plant, which is underpowered, imo).

The Great Wall of Suleiman: a Warmonger’s Guide to Espionage

Before I begin, I would like to thank madscientist for his wonderful article “The Power of Great Spies,” which served as the initial inspiration for me to develop this strategy. I highly recommend anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with my strategy read it first (the link is below), as it served as my foundation. Secondly, I would like to admit that this is both my first article AND my first post on these forums, although I’ve been a long time lurker and have read most of the articles in this sub-forum.

Chatroom Client and Rules
By Ginger_Ale at 2008-04-29 21:30
Please allow the java chat applet to load when the pop up window appears.

By Ginger_Ale at 2008-04-27 20:59

The CivFanatics Chat Room can be accessed using the Java chat room, or you can use an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client, such as mIRC or Trillian, to view it. We strongly encourage you to use an IRC client because it's much faster and convenient to use than the Java applet.
