Not sure... Most everything in Civ3 aside from the game engine can be
modded.

What I would like to see is the ability to convert/import Civ3 units and
other graphics into Civ4 without too much work. I'd hate to have people who
have put mods together for Civ3 go back and redo alot of work just for a
Civ4 mod

The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that
English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words;
on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them
unconscious and riffle their pockets for new vocabulary. -- James D. Nicoll

It was certainly short, but I'm not sure it was "to the point".

I suppose it could be construed as implying that I don't want anything
retained from Civ 3, but in fact it was posted accidently. I was just
reading the article, that's all.

I don't know how to answer they question. It's easy to identify things I
don't like, and say that they should be changed. It's also easy to idenfify
features I like, but the problem is, I have no idea what other things will
have changed which may mean that the feature I like no longer works as well,
or even makes any sense at all.

I wasn't sure if you had made a mistake or were being clever. Figured
the latter, actually.

See, that's the thing; without knowing how the internal interactions work,
it's hard to know which cards we can remove, and which ones are holding the
rest of the house up.
