Okkun - If anyone's interested in startegygames, and would like to get something "deeper" than what Civ5 offers, I would recommend:

Europa Universalis 3
Victoria 2
Crusader Kings 2






and if you are really brave, Hearts of Iron 3

Crusader kings 2 is probably one of the best games I have ever played.

Civ 5 isn't as good as 4 in my opinion because the mods in 4 are so much better then 5 that it isn't even funny.

Would agree but I would switch Heart of Iron 3 for Victoria 2. Hearts of Iron 3 isn't that bad to learn. Victoria 2 is nutty with the amount of stuff you have to follow.

God And Kings seems like it'd be good if you don't always wanna play aggressive.

If anyone knows any good mods (non G&K) post 'em here!

I play like a huge pussy in Civilisation and generally get Space Race victory.

I found HoI was a lot more complicated, while Victoria kind of managed itself.

there's no incentive for a military campaign in any of the recent CIV games, the wars cost production points and give nothing in return.

It's always worth building a decent army to discourage other Civs from attacking you.

If you ending up capturing cities, just raze the one that you don't want.

Ok so ever since last night my game has been running like shit & most hosts boot me right when I enter the lobby. Just ran speedtest and everything seems fine.

Anybody have any suggestions? I tried lowering the settings to medium and didn't help.

Do you play in divx 10/11? If so, try turning it down to 9... Or turning off vsync in the video options, if you have it ticked.

yeah I just wish it was possible to get gold and steal tech from captured cities like the first CIV games. In the more recent games there's no reward for conquering cities, you lose a ton of units in the process and it's a pain in the butt to keep them running with all the unhappiness etc.

I very rarely lose units when fighting other Civs, unless it's retardedly one-sided odds.

One thing I find helps is having workers build a road with your advance so you can rapidly move siege into position and rotate frontline units.

Does anyone know how to play over LAN with mods?
I got an awesome mod that changes the game, but I really only play over LAN, and when you play through the mods section the only option is single player.

If someone can link me to a guide or explain how I'll be grateful!

Last couple of Civs have really been about specialisation of cities rather than Civ I or II style city spamming or Civ 3's shitty approach of trying to limit Civ expansion with corruption and stuff.

So there's plenty of scenarios where cities building military units instead of irrelevant improvements is preferred.
