This is the full original CD image, minus the audio tracks (due to size). So the game still has sounds, and most simple in-game music, but the top quality background music (that those who have the game either love or hate) is gone.
It's a toast image (Disk Copy 6.3.3 just wouldn't touch the disc) that has been Zipped in OSX (right click "Create Archive"). Use the BOMArchiveHelper (right click) on the Zip to uncompress. I've also included the latest v1.11 update for Mac, in the Zip - so if you unzip on PC you'll hose it, but it's still available here:
Unfortunately, I can only find the PC version of the manual, not that I ever needed to read the Mac (hardcopy) one anyway.
Below is a link to a bin-cue image. Just burn with Toast to make a CD that includes both game and audio partition.
The third download at the top right is the updater to version 1.11.
Sid Meier's Civilization II is an empire-building turn-based strategy game. The game starts at the Old Stone Age in 4000 BC. Your tribe begins with a Settlers unit and has no knowledge about the surrounding area. As you found new cities and explore the surroundings, you may find hostile barbarians, villages, and other competing cultures. Once you have discovered another culture, you can adopt a policy of co-existence by signing a permanent peace treaty with that culture; you can even form a military alliance. But for those who like to conquer, you will find great satisfaction in deploying more than 50 different military units and crush your enemies. However, military is not the only aspect of this game. You will also need to concentrate on trade, science development, and make your people happy in order to avoid civil disorders.
Throughout the game, you need to research technological advances, one after another, closely following the development of human civilization. To stay ahead in the science race is one thing that could lead to success. In your long reign, you can set your cities to build Wonders of the World, which are huge projects that require tremendous amount of labor and resources. Owners of these Wonders enjoy everlasting glories and benefits.
You can choose from six different types of government: Despotism, Monarchy, Fundamentalism, Republic, Communism and Democracy. Each of these government type has its distinct advantages and disadvantages. They represent how your empire will operate and have profound influence on your empire.Compatibility
Mac OS 7.5.3
CD-ROM drive (for the audio tracks)
For me, runs ok in Classic Mode under OS X 10.3, so unfortunately, all emulators are untried. Please update this with your results.
CIV GOLD II (German Version)
Runs very nice under OS X 10.4.11 (Classic Mode)
