  1. SCORE!! I found a Dune Civ2 mod!! I friggin knew there was one out there but just couldn't find it anywhere until now! Anyway big update as I widened my search to get help from more communities out there and had some AWESOME responses from people so many thanks to everyone who's contacted me publicly and privately! I'm also starting to look more at newer Civilization games (4-6) and finding some good stuff. Someone pointed out that I should include a The Elder Scrolls (Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim etc) section and gave me several Civ scenarios for it I'd never heard of! I'm a huge TES fan
  2. If people are interested in more info I've finally just written a belated steam review with a big list of the game's pros and cons (IMO). https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198058803521/recommended/984680 Also just released some videos covering my thoughts too: Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpqP2s6ypys Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGdmW-swlZo
  3. Hey guys I’m on the Hunt for big Civilization game series total conversion mods & scenarios with a particular focus on Civ2 & Civ3 (but am now expanding to Civ4, 5, 6 & spinoffs) relating to a whole bunch of my favourite fantasy & scifi movie/TV/gaming franchises (including Dune and C&C!). Been posting in a few different Civ forums and getting great feedback, plus whenever someone has told me about an awesome scenario that’s disappeared over the years I’ve managed to track it down and bring it back from the dead to CivFinatics or ModDB hosting, so helping me has helped
  4. Yup, exciting stuff!!! I'm worried too though.. I've never wanted something to not suck so bad in my life bahahaha .

    Cyberpunk 2077

    Anyone else excited about Cyberpunk 2077s release? Being a retro gamer I don't even have a PC good enough to run the thing haha but nevertheless I've been drooling over all the videos CD Projekt Red have been releasing on youtube lately. Eg just look at the amazing views of the huge city in this one! Over the last few months they’ve been doing a really good behind the scenes series called ‘Night City Wire’ with heaps of amazing new gameplay footage. .
  6. Hey MrFlibbe! Been a while, in fact I think it was a Doom forum the last time we ran into each other lol! No worries mate, I'm always on the hunt for similar games to MOO. Someone recently joined the Master of Magic discord channel I run who said he's working on a project to reserve engineer all classic Simtex games which of course includes MOO. Will be interesting to see how that goes... just pulling apart one of their games is half impossible so I'm not sure how he's going to go doing it with all of them lol! But I'll post updates here if he gets anywhere... EDIT: Oh unless you mea
  7. No I hadn't! Thanks for that! Remind's me of the Sega Genesis/Megadrive version of Dune 2 from back in the day. I'll add it to the list for the next update whenever that'll be haha. Speaking of new discoveries I saw someone posting today in a C&C facebook group about a Dune 2000 remake in the Unreal 4 engine.. it looked pretty freaky.. annoyingly the guy didn't post any links to a project page or community and ignored all requests for them so all I can do is link to the facebook post if people want to check it out: https://www.facebook.com/groups/commandandconquer/permalink/35417
  8. Hey guys, Back in the 90s I used to muck around with Doom 2 and Civilization 2 modding but never finished any of my projects, but in recent years I've been getting back into it (call it can early midlife crisis lol) and released a GZDoom enhanced version of my old Star Trek Doom level and also a new Quest for Glory IV - 3D Hexen mod too. Much to my surprise both got a lot of media attention with the QFG4-3D one in particular getting coverage on Rock Paper Shotgun and in PC Gamer Magazine which was awesome. The great response inspired me to also get back into my old Civilization 2 editing
  9. I thought Discovery season 1 was okay but there were many things that annoyed me. Season 2 was a huge improvement for me however that was mainly due to the additional cast members playing Pike, Spock and Number One on the enterprise, there was still some silly stuff (lazy writing plot hole things as usual) that annoyed me though. Season 3 loses those great additions so I fear it'll disappoint me again lol. My love of the Disco season 2 Enterprise content of course also leaves me super excited for Star Trek Strange New Worlds (aka the Star Trek Pike show fans demanded heh) as they've said it wi
  10. Well.. time was running out on the steam sale and the general response I'm getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However I watched this dudes let's play series below and that sold it for me.. so I’ve hit the button lol! As expected it’s graphics aren’t exactly revolutionary lol but damn is it addictive and fun to play. Last few days I've barely eaten, slept, worked.. it’s all gone to hell haha!! There's room for improvement though so I've been posting lots of feedback on the steam forum as the devs actually read your c
  11. Well it got funded in the end so I was glad to be wrong lol! Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried Interstellar Space Genesis? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of only 2 people haha! It looks pretty awesome so am thinking about trying it out now that it's finally on sale (it's normally pretty pricey lol). https://store.steampowered.com/app/984680/Interstellar_Space_Genesis/
  12. WOAH!!! The good news keeps coming for MoM fans. After years Implode has returned from his self imposed exile (think kungfu movie where the bad guy bests the good guy so the good guy climbs up a mountain and learns better kungfu with some old guy with a grey beard who never speaks and then the good guy comes back and kicks the bad guys ass lol) and released a new version of his HD Multiplayer remake of Master of Magic with for the first time FUNCTIONING AI!! This is the moment many like me have been waiting/hoping for.. hopefully people try it and give him some feedback! Announcement: htt
  13. I think these are the same pics that were in Vanify fair but on Imgur.. god it looks cool.. please be good please be good please be good https://imgur.com/gallery/oJLKbrg
  14. hahaha I was literally just watching one of their videos on Picard when I arrived here to post my Final Episode 10 rant..
  15. Probably noticed I haven't posted here since I blew up a bit over Ep5 haha. I have kept watching the show though but was less invested in it to continue posting my episode round ups. I said after ep 5 that they'd really need some good eps to undo the damage that did, so... Here's my thoughts on eps 6-9..
