24.Nov MapUtility in Downloads
22.Nov 13th poll
ANYDAY NOW...
(December 3) Good news for would-be Mac CTPer's out there! Westlake Interactive is reporting that their port of Civilization: Call To Power is now in the "final candidate stage, and that its estimated ship date is, quote, "anyday now". Our thanks to StantonMac for the note. We will pass along more information as it becomes available.

MAP UTILITY!
(November 24) As there are few CTP maps, MapUtility comes to save the day. Simply said, it can load and save a map in the following formats: CivII, Alpha Centauri, RRT II and C:CTP. It can also load greyscale or green/yellow/brown bitmap in .pcx format. The ctp conversion part is not the most easy to be(like in the CivII or SMAC cases), but the important thing is that it works! A definite download for all creators!

BETTER IMPRESSIONS
(November 22) Our 12th poll on patch 1.2 is finally over(it was about time we close it, dont you think? :)). The results are better than the ones about the first patch. Here's a comparison
First PatchSecond Patch
Awesome - The game is perfect now 33 / 3% 81 / 7%
Great - But there is still room for improvement 385 / 39% 555 / 52%
Good - But they didn't fix what I wanted fixed 292 / 30% 233 / 21%
Ok - But I could live without it 66 / 6% 52 / 4%
Disappointed - It is worse now than before 102 / 10% 61 / 5%
None - I have a localized/linux version 85 / 8% 80 / 7%
In our new poll, we ask you what you would like to see most in an improved ctp, whether that is through a patch, an expansion pack or a future version. You can give your comments about the poll in the forums. Thanks to Monkey for the idea.
