Control the full cycle of your civilization's evolution, from the initial planning and building of its infrastructure, to the full-blooded conflict of race against race in the quest to expand your power and domination. Before you start conquering your neighbors, however, you'll first need to create a sustainable economy from the interdependent activities of agriculture, industry and trading.
