As such, I'm very good at RTS, and I vastly prefer them to Civ 3. If I really felt the need for a turn based strategy, I tend to play Heros of Might and Magic and Age of wonders. PS, my fav strategy for Civ 3 - go to war with the first Civ you met. repeat. hehehehehehehehe happyness level at around 20, science as high as it can go, at least 2 troops in every city.
