Civilization III Updated to 1.17g
7:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

MacSoft has released a new patch for Civilization III, bringing the blockbuster strategy game by Sid Meier to version 1.17g. The first update, version 1.17f, fixed a large list of issues, but some of the updated code from the PC version also caused a new crashing bug not found in the original version.

Westlake Interactive's Brad Oliver went back and corrected the crashing bug, as well as some other less-critical problems. Here's a partial list:

  • Fixed issue where the game soundtrack would not fade down properly when playing the space-race movie.
  • Fixed issue where the Mac port would crash when loading some types of custom games created on the PC. As a result, some save games created on the
    Mac in 1.17f and earlier may no longer work, but odds are that they were pretty unstable to begin with.
  • PC bug: fixed random crashing during turn upkeep.
  • PC bug: fixed crash when disposing of certain types of units, mainly transports.

Civilization III fans should head over to MacGameFiles and download the version 1.17g update. For more information, be sure to read IMG's review at the link below.
