Sid Meier's Civ III: Complete

I just got CivIII: Complete version, and want to update it to get the most recent version. What do I use to do this? The Civ III patch or the Civ III: Play the World Patch or the Civ III: Conquests patch?

    I don't have an answer, but when I bought Civ 3 Gold (Pre-conquests), I couldn't patch it. Any version of the patch would muck up my install, so I just left it unpatched.

    How would it mess up your install?

    According to the Civfanatics FAQ on Civ III: Complete, the install is fully up to date. No patches are necessary.

    Because the only two patches at the time were for either Civ III or the Play the World Expansion, which Civ III included, but was different from. So if I used the Civ III patch, I lost the Play the World Expansion. If I used the Play the World patch, I lost the extras for having Civ III gold.
