I'd probably be interested but I've never played and would probable lose pretty quickly. Link the site for the download and I'll check it out.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeciv/

Pros:
It's free, legally
It's available on Mac, win, Linux, without those crazy win95 comp issues
We can have way more players and generally customize stuff better


Cons
The graphics aren't as nice (but they are customizable)
No music/wonder videos

[link edited in above]

Also I'm going to hunt for the music, because after we (me and my bros) lost our CD, we just played a downloaded version, which didn't have the music, nor the "I concur, your excellency" which was missed... :( :D

Also, my brother suggested we start from a scenario, that way we don't have to worry about, at the beginning when you're just clicking space 20 times :P
Any Ideas?

(I got back into it, and played an old save game of Rise of Rome campaign for 20 minutes last night)

The scenarios are generally unfair. Can you imagine playing Rise of Rome as the Celts?

I should just note that I do actually love the scenarios (it's the only reason I still sometimes play Civ2 instead of just Freeciv) and I would be up for some such game.

Until quite recently, spider silk had the highest tensile strength of any substance known to man, and the name Silksteel pays homage to the arachnid for good reason.

Peacekeepers suck. It's all about the Hive or the Gaians for me. Sometimes the University.

Playing as Gaia is a form of Game Abuse.

It does make it super easy...but it's so fun to overrun your neighbors with captured mindworms.

With this in mind, is it possible to play Civ IV as PBEM? Because at least Civ 4 has the Advance Start option so that we could start out a little better and could skip the beginning part when there is nothing to do. I guess the con to this would be that the only way to get Civ4 without buying it is with torrents, and not everybody is comfortable using those.
