Quick question on the game. I just checked it out on wikipedia, with special attention to the new units. My understanding was they put in futuristic mech-like infantry, which you can see on the box art. However, these units are not found in the "New Unit" list. I saw a scenario in which they are used, and the article says the scenario can be played independently, or tacked on to an Epic game.
Essentially, my question is, if I play an epic game of Beyond the Sword, am I going to have ultra futuristic armies automatically, or is it something that can be switched on and off.
Alright, so I bought it today. The first thing I noticed is that it seems to sometimes have problems starting up, and crashes. But it is generally when I am trying to start it up while finishing looking at a website or something, so it isn't a huge issue.
The problem is something I encountered in the original Civ IV with the leaderheads. On several, Mehmed and now Justinian being the worse, the skin shading is off. They both have patches of lighter skin all over their face and parts of their bodies. Now, I saw a patch that is supposed to fix this problem in Civ IV, but nothing for Beyond the Sword. Any help?
