That the drums that play on the menu of the Infinity games is one of the emissary sound effects from Civilization II?

Yes, I did. But given Anthony gives a thumbs-up emote every time I mention my love of Civ2, and that it was my first computer strategy game on a computer I actually owned, and it's usage of bitmaps and text files to edit scenarios and it's TBS format released in an age where RTS was dominant, I think he's been very inspired by Sid Meier's classic. :)

I just picked it up. It's a lot of fun!

I take it you're a member at the Civilization Fanatics Center?

👊 I have an original boxed Civilization sitting on my bookshelf - I and II were masterworks of turn-based games, IMO.

The 3 main influences on the precursor to the Infinity games were probably Civ, MOO, and Nobunaga's Ambition II (1990s game, not more recent remake).

Yeah, all the Infinity sounds are from Civ 2! Why, it even has the same score rating screen! ...is that even legal?
