  • Can you edit/mod the rate of Strategic Resource generation in Civilization III? Lokathor

    When playing Civ 3 (The "complete" edition on Steam), I often find that the Strategic Resources don't appear nearly frequently enough for my liking. In an area that could fit 10 or 11 cities without any overlap, there was a single patch of Iron. When you add in that a resource can be depleted, this makes the ability to play out the map fairly unpredictable (since you can't see resources for techs you don't have).

    Is there some way to edit the map generator's strategic resource frequency? Or a mod or patch or something that does this? I'd like them to appear more often without having to use a custom map to do it.

  • I see a view on the web where in Civilization 5 you can see the resources on the map by default. How do I enable that?

  • There is a nice strategic map popping up when hitting NUM0 that displays all available units of your own as well as points of strategic relevance and discovered enemy troops. This is already nice from a tactical point of view, but I heard it is also possible to use this map to gain an advantage by making macro easier. How?

Only subscribed to one on Steam "Dovahkiin Hideout" for the big house, more...I began a new character with patch 1.4.21.4 I completed the Thieves Guild story line, where Mallus Maccius pledges to me to be a fence for my services. I moved on and became the Guild Master. Now

  • When you first research a technology that reveals a new resource on the map (eg. Electricity reveals Aluminum), you can click the tip that comes up to center the map on deposits of that resource that are near your cities. Is there a way to easily find those Strategic Resources again on later turns? So far I haven't found any method other than hovering my mouse over all of the tiles near where I thought it was to try to locate it.
