Project Of The Month: "Civ III" On Deity

1 Nov

Civilization IV was released about a week ago and since I can’t play it right now (old PC), I thought this is the right time to do something new: start a Civ III game on Deity difficulty. In the original Civilization III, this was the highest difficulty level; in the add-on Conquests one higher level was added. I won two games on Emperor, but I was always chicken to try Deity. Before I start, I’ll have to look up the advantages the AI gets on this level.

I decided now is the perfect time for trying a Deity game, with all the enthusiastic reviews coming in about Civilization IV. I need something to occupy me, otherwise I would just spend my whole time drooling and reading about Civilization IV.

Well, actually, I did just that the last couple of hours. There are some interesting reads out there:

During the next days I will read some succession games played on Deity difficulty in Civilization III again and check some other useful articles to feel better prepared to finally do Deity. The goal is to survive as long as possible in the game so that one fine day and after a couple of tries, I’ll be lucky enough (able?) to win on this difficulty setting.
