CivCalc is a handy little tool to help Civilization players manage game cards. CivCalc keeps track of the cards you own, shows you the discount you’re entitled to for each card you do not own and adds up the values / prices of cards. Simply select the card(s) you want to buy, and CivCalc tells you the total value and price (with discounts).
CivCalc handles both Civilisation and Civilisation Advanced card sets.
Simply install civ.prc If you have a previous version that you registered, then you’ll have to enter the registration code again. Sorry…
Starting a new game
When you start playing Civilisation, choose new game from the game pulldown menu. Select the apropriate game type (regular Civilisation or Advanced Civilisation).
During the game
After starting a new game you’ll see the following screen:
At the bottom of the screen you can select which cards you want to see: the cards you own (Owned) 1, cards you can buy (Available) 2, or the cards you have selected to buy (Selected) 3. The cards are shown with the color group they belong in 4, the value 5 and the price 6. The price is equal to the value minus the discounts you receive on account of the cards you already own. The sum of the value / price of all cards in the current view and the selected cards is shown 7.
To buy cards during a game round, select the desired cards in the “Available” view. The value and price of your selection are calculated and shown at the bottom of the screen. When you have decided to actually purchase your selection, press the Buy button 8. This will move the selected cards to the “Owned” view.
The “Owned” view shows the total value of the cards you own. If you change your mind about a particular card after you hit the Buy button, select that card in this view and press the Sell button 9. The selected card will be removed from the set of cards owned by you, and moved back to the available card set.
If, during the game, others would like to use CivCalc, choose add player from the game menu. At the top of the screen, a row of numbered buttons will appear. Use these buttons to switch back and forth between the different players. The Owned, Available and Selected cards shown are always those of the current player, indicated by the highlighted player button. CivCalc can be used by up to 8 people.
To make it easier to remember which CivCalc player belongs to whom, players have the option of entering their initials. These initials (3 characters) will be shown on the corresponding player selection buttons. To enter initials, select your player, change the number in the text field (in the upper right corner) to your initials, and immediately select another player. Your player button should now display your initials.
CivCalc is shareware. The unregistered version lets you play three games; after that you’ll have to delete it from your Palm and reinstall it. Otherwise it is fully functional.
You can register for $10 at www.palmgear.com, where you’ll receive the registration code. Choose register from the options pulldown menu, enter the code.
There is no reason why CivCalc should not work on any Palm model, however I have only tested this software on my Palm Pro / III. Contact me at the below address if you experience any problems.
Please email me at [email protected] if you find any bug, and I’ll fix it asap.
