This is a feature that the Civ team has experience with, and purposely left out. First, the units are supposed to be historical so completely custom units makes no sense whatsoever. Second, many people (not including myself) didn't like the necessity of designing custom units in Alpha Centauri. You'd never know this by reading forums, but the forum grognards are what, 0.05% of the customer base? Volume of complaints doesn't equal volume of sales
I love the unit designing in Alpha Centauri, and i think Alpha centauri is actually a better game than galciv, but that dousn't mean galciv is not a wonderful game!
Civ 4 is garbage.
Jesus I almost had a heart attack when I read this heresy.
Acually, i have to say i was a bit dissapointed with civ4 at the very moment when i first tried to bombard an enemy naval unit off my coast with my newly constructed artillery unit! ahem, my artillery seems to be broken?? yea, and so is the game!!
So if you don't like the game, why don't you just shut ya mouth and leave? Cut your losses and get lost? Don't like it, don't have to play it. Why sit here complaining about something when it's not going to happen? Last time i checked, you weren't god's gift to game designers, and you're word was no where in any bible... Soooo... What ARE you doing here?
You wan't to sensor this forum to recieve just positive posts?? Everyone who buys the game is entitled to come here and post an opinion, good or bad. Besides, I'm sure Stardock appreciate that people take the time to give feedback on their products, good or bad, customer feedback is a valuable tool.
