Singapore Skyline Featured On Civilization IV Website!

Thanks to Wandie for catching this in a previous comment. It's true! The homepage of the Civ IV website features local buildings! (Click below for bigger picture.) Walking along the paved Roman road, you'll reach the Leaning Tower of Pisa. The White House is beside it. The buildings above the WH are, from left to right, Singapore Land Tower, Maybank Tower, OUB Centre, UOB Plaza 1 and 2 (separated by the road), and OCBC Centre. The real life view is here. Way cool! :)

Is it in the game as well? Did Sid Meier visit Singapore? Got inspired?

I'm not sure whether it's in the game, probably it's just artwork to be used on the website.

Maybe the designer who drew the artwork searched Google Images, and found a suitable skyline that has a space to put in the road. But I'd be interested to know what the real story is too...:)

I think it'll be out next week, so saith the folks in the forums... but obviously, I won't be getting it!

DK said...

I'm also wondering if I should get it. Cause if i get it, I can expect myself to burn many hours in it....

it is too damn addictive...

Cannot lah... Judging from the amount of time I've wasted on Civ 1, 2 and 3, I think I shouldn't get Civ4. Will die....
