I had my annual settlers II:gold craving just now, and do you think I could play it under vista.. NOOooooOOOOOOoo. *sigh*. And do you think I can find any other game similar? NOOOOoooOOOOOooo. Any recommendations? If anyone can think of anything that can fool my settler craving, I'm willing to listen, er.. read.


[edit]NM. I discovered that it works perfectly under dosbox.

Also, I think I've figured out that the reason I like games like S2G, trade empires, and transport tycoon is the logistics involved. For some reason, I find spending time er.. making logistics lines more efficient, very.. satisfying. It feels good to have a perfectly oiled machine, and the more complicated and time consuming it becomes, the more satisfying it is when you get it running perfectly. I guess that's why Settlers is so addictive for me.. Because it is basically impossible to get it perfect, due to the game design. I can't help but try however, and I'm always irritated when a geologist in the game discovers a whole lot of some resource in a clump and I can only build mines on some of it, wasting the rest. Maybe logistics games bring out my inner perfectionist.
