Wow, this is a phenomenal Steam deal.

CoH is one of the best RTS games I've ever played.

So, if I launch BtS I don't get the Warlord pack when I play? I'm so confused how to get the entire experience. :cry:

You'll only miss out on a few lame Warlords-specific scenarios. All Warlords improvements and gameplay changes are carried over to Beyond the Sword, in addition to the new BTS stuff.

If that's true, then does that mean I don't need all four games on my hard drive? If I just have Civ IV Beyond The Sword installed, does that include all of the content?

Colonization is a separate game. But if you want the complete Civ IV experience (minus a few Warlords-specific campaigns), just download and install Civ IV: Beyond the Sword and forget about the other two Civ IV games. I only have BTS installed right now and it works fine, but the other Civ IV games are attached to my STEAM account.

If you buy Civ4 Complete from Steam, does it install each part separately (like many of the 'bundles') or does it install the Civ4 Complete game as it would be off retail-- I'm asking since Civ4 apparently contains SecuROM but Civ4 complete has no DRM-- I assume Steam version needs Steam running, but I'm hoping Civ 4 Complete wouldn't include anything else...

I have Civ IV complete and just download and run Civ IV: Beyond the Sword from Steam. It features the base game and all the BTS content. In the games menu, there is an icon for each of the Civ games.

You also don't need to run Steam to play the game: simply copy/paste the data from your Steam folder into wherever and apply a crack.

Blah, I can't wait until the solly and demo craze dies down. The game is totally unplayable for me right now; spam is just off the charts.

I really like unlocks like the Kritz and Buff Banner that promote teamwork. Stuff like the Sandman, Eyelander, Equalizer, etc. I find completely retarded and contrary to the spirit of the original TF2. The updates are neutral, then, because Valve saves themselves from ruining their own masterpiece thanks to a few decent unlocks but most importantly new maps and Saxton Hale comics.
