First off yes I am aware of the Civ Fanatics site.
So when Civilization IV went on sale about a month ago I believe, I bought it, never played the series and heard good things and well... I never been into strategy games either but it was cheap enough so yeah... and I can say that it is addicting.
I make this journal out of frustration somewhat. I have played about 50 hours and all and understand the basics and how things work but I am still at such a lost on making a plan... just no idea what I should be working on next, you know what to research next. No strategy or anything I just tend to go for the things that take less turns and usually in recommended and I dunno.
It just feels like I may never wrap my brain around on looking ahead and what I know I should be doing. I enjoy the start of the game most as that is where the fun begins, finding where your next Settler should go based on resources and finding villages and seeing what they give you. My recent game I got 3 Settlers in a row from those villages... that is a first. Yes I am playing on Chieftain difficulty and I am aware I get bonuses over the AI in that one... still.
Anyway I dunno... even with that Civ Fansite and all my mind still boggles and I am doubting even though I make this journal to see if anyone can clear things up more, that I'd be able to understand it since it is text and I have to see how it happens and falls together. But ah well, might be nice to know of others out there who play it.
