ok, a few hours in Civ5 so far. Bought on steam so no manual. Trying to attack a city state, I have 4 catapults and 5 swords but it does not let me pack them on same tile (red dot). When I try to attack individually (from multiple squares) it keeps saying me sieges can succeed only if several units attack simultaneously.

But this is what I trying to do, lol, wtf going crazy.

Civ 5 developers eliminated unit stacking to increase strategic feeling of play. I think this is a good idea. So you do have to surround the city with your units - keep in mind ranged units can usually attack from two spaces away unless there's a hill in the way or something.

I'm not sure what you mean by the attacking simultaneously bit, though. You just attack, and if you reduce the city to zero hp, you take it over. The city will regain some health at the end of the turn.

I watched a few videos to get what's new. In fact, you have to bring lot of shooters + 1 melee, as only melee can take it, when is down to 1HP.

Not bad idea to prohibit stacking-ok, but maneuvering full armies when they can't pass through same square, and while the enemy snipes you to death is crispy. It pushes to cheat: declare war only when in position, otherwise is very tedious.

Nice, they're upgrading and releasing Brytenwalda as a new game. Hell, the mod itself is a new game, the ****tons of new features from hunting to sailing (proper controlled sailing, and fleet battles, love boarding with my viking ships <3), also you can have kids too, which you can then sell.... >.>  I guess the release will be more polished and upgraded meshes and textures will be included. One of the great successes of mount and blade is the modding community, it's so simple to mod (though a ton of coding even for newbies), weapons and armours take time to export and import into other games (I copied some stuff from napoleonic and from fire ans sword into warband).

The normal stuff that I use universally in every mod though is upgraded face meshes, tricky to do depending on the faces currently in the game and the fact that both female and male faces come separately but all use the same folder, so you can't override, and unlike female faces the male ones retain the same textures, so you have to edit the skin file to avoid making them look like mutants. I also edit the conversation file to enable my wife to become a companion, especially nice in Brytenwalda, but I use it in every mod, though in PoP it's annoying at times, since it's got sound files for female warriors and when you have 50 of them they just scream...and scream...

And omg, forgot about the new siege system in brytenwalda, you get battering rams and breakable gates!!! Once the gate is smashed you do get a hail of javelins in your face, but you know. Bows are much less OP in Brytenwalda, but not useless, if you have archers firing into the tight formations of the enemy they do good dmg, but do not massacre entire armies like in PoP or Floris.

Anyway, finished modding a mod yesterday, and today ima finally play it (playtested it to make sure it works mind you), it's a game of thrones mod "A world of Ice and Fire", it's built on the brytenwalda system so I'm looking forward to being a Greyjoy raider. <3

Floris if you have a decent pc as it upgrades the game graphically as well as new features, it is still Claradia tho.

Brytenwalda is very nice if you're in the mood for infantry combat, bows are nerfed significantly but still good, horses are expensive as hell, has hunting and sailing/ship battles and unique castle sieges so yay for that. (mind about the ship combat, they inserted automatic boarding which means if you get close to an enemy ship you board automatically, problem is the speed of it causes all your men to fly this way and that and drown , not sure if fixed yet)

Prophesy of Pendor, very neat campaign and they've made massive improvements recently, I loved it to bits.

A Clash of Kings if you want a decent game of thrones mod.

Think it was the original that was free,  most mods are for the Warband expansion.

Think the original has some exclusives as well though.. that one LOTR mod for example me thinks.

Yeah funny that it's assets still work for warband, so all I had to do is export the resources and textures and then look through em for some decent stuff. :3

Back when I was in a LOTR mood. Actually I realised that I did find something useful, mesh folder titled jack_lotrweapons, it has: Gandalf's, Aragorn's, Boromir's, faramir's and frodo's swords, high detail mesh, just needed to update the specular and the shader so that it ain't so dark and voila, shiny steel-like blades.

Just about to start a one city challenge, always war, ragging barbarians, Emperor level, CIV 5/Ramses. Sending warriors to choke points, will be fun.

I've also downloaded CIV 5 and took peak.  In the beginning not much happens and you constantly have to go next turn though, right or did I miss something? Note that I havent played any CIV game before.

I wonder on which "continent" this map was based

When I play Civ, I have a tendency to make my maps/civs as historically and geographically accurate as possible. I know that one of the biggest twists of Civilization series is that you can, for instance, make Japan, a part of Europe, fight Ethiopia. When I create my games though, I always seem to make them "realistic" (to some extent of course). To show an example: when I pick a North America based map I choose all possible American nations (Natives included), eventually colonists from Europe.

I wonder how you guys play your game...

No continent based, this is "four corners" template, suitable for one city challenge, since opponents must surround you and not fight each other.

5 mods installed:

* longer eras (research beakers are multiplied)
* unlimited experience from barbs (with ragging this is going to be fun)
* gold rush (wealth is enabled early)
* more food in cities (2 medieval buildings improve growth)
* better culture (price for expanding is 1/3), again, necessary for OCC.

had to restart, took same color as barbs so it was hard to see who is who.
