Missing Dune Civilization 2 Scenarios

Postby Blake00 » 14 Jun 2021 07:54

Hey guys,

Some of you may have seen over in my Civilization scenario search & rescue thread here that I'm on the hunt for Dune scenarios for Civilization games. I've managed to discover the existence of a handful of Dune scenarios for Civilization 2 and sadly some appear to be possibly lost forever.

Originally I only knew of David Emery's The Battle for Arrakis scenario which is on most Civ sites and on the Fed2k Dune forum site too.

However I was recently informed about David Greenfield's CivDune scenario over at Fed2k too and have added to the collection and spread it around the Civ communities too.

And I saw Dick Knisely's Islands in the Sand scenario at Fed2k too and will try it out soon although I can see in it's readme it's not set in the Dune universe but is inspired by it.

I have also discovered proof of the existence of three more Dune scenarios for Civ2 on a webarchive backup of an old Civ2 scenario site called the Zadanian League. Sadly the downloads are not backed up and all that remains is some basic info and some simple mini-map screenshots. Failed to find copies on any other Civ site either. If any dune gaming fans here have these scenarios please let me know so I can rescue them and make them publicly available to ensure they're not lost forever!

Finding these 20 year old Dune Civ2 scenarios is a long shot I know but I gotta try. Sooner or later someone with a copy will hopefully come along.

Still no luck finding these missing Civilization 2 Dune scenarios sadly. Tried everywhere I can! :(

On the bright side I have found something else rather rare and not commonly known about. A fellow named Autumn Leaf made a Dune Arrakis scenario for Civilization 1! Until recently I didn't even think that Civ1 even had scenarios let alone a Dune one made for it haha. I tried it out and it was really fun!
