Poll Update
Posted by kach on July 31, AD 2008 @ 12:17 AM
Our last poll asked: Do you use a spreadsheet to plan your cities?
Always (23)
Often (10)
Sometimes (13)
Rarely (16)
Never (177)
For the majority who don't use a spreadsheet, if you would like to try one, look in the downloads; there is one from ledhead and one from NorWiking.

The new poll question is about city building style. What sort of city builder are you? Do you find you concentrate on a particular aspect of the game when building you cities?
