I have Civilization III. Enjoy playing it but let's be honest... after
3 or so years of playing the game in one fashion or another it's
gotten a tad stale. Still enjoyable but kinda stale.

I looked at the umpteen different offerings on the store shelves and
they all look about the same as the version I have. The one I have is
the Additions v1.29f.

Can anybody give me any comparrisons of the different titles and what
upgrading to them might give me in enhanced play?

Thanks in advance.

1.29f is called Vanilla Civ3 because it is the plain, basic game.

Play the World adds much nicer interface improvements, 8 more civs, many bug
fixes... PTW 1.27f

Conquests adds 8 more new civs, 2 more civ traits, comes with premade
scenarios called 'conquests' and a reworked corruption system (after
patching). They stopped supporting it before they got all the bugs out and a
few of them are mildly irritating... C3C 1.22 (no 'f')

They are about to come out with Civ3: Complete witch includes all 3 titles
in one package.

You can get all the patches at www.civfanatics.com just look on the left
side of the main page. There should be a Patches link in the Civ3
section...

Does Conquests have the interface improvements from PtW?

Thanks. I got the full download for Conquests (which I bought today).
Don't know that I would have noticed much of a difference but it's
good to know that I got whatever was wrong fixed.

However, Conquests does not have all the extra goodies that came with PTW.
I understand that Snoopy's terrain and some other stuff were included on the
PTW cd. But none of that is available on the Conquests cd only the PTW
executable and additional standard epic game files.

Therefore, if you only have Civ3 with Conquests (like me) you have to
download all the extra graphic files that you want from www.civfanatics.com.
I guess there is something to be said for buying the PTW cd if you want to
use the extra cool graphics and only have a 56k dial-up.

www.civ3.com has the extras available for download. I'm not sure if it
includes *everything* or not.
