I’ve played all the games in the Civilization series – Civ, Civ2, Civ3, Civ4, Civ5 – most of the spin-offs (Colonization 1+2, Alpha Centauri), and many of the mods (especially the Civ3 and Civ4 mods).
I was disappointed by Civ5, and found myself yearning for something that combined the best bits of Civ4 (UX + core game), Civ4 mods (deep gameplay), and Civ5 (beautiful graphics, high performance).
I’m building it myself. This website charts progress, design-decisions, wins and fails. My goal is a fun, innovative, enjoyable new game at the end of it.
The modding community has had two interrelated problems:
The only way to get around this long-term was to build my own complete game using no code, no assets, no resources from Civ games. I can sell it (or give it away free), and I can open it up to modders to not only mode but also to charge money for their mods.
There is a 50/50 chance that 2k Games will eventually choose to do something similar; but the way the series has developed after Civ4 has been disappointing: gameplay has suffered enormously. So we want to build from the best of Civ4 and Civ5, and Civ6 is definitely not doing that!
No worries; I’ll build it myself, and stay independent from 2k. I look forward to playing Firaxis’s future Civ games, but I’ve already diverged…
