It's too bad they didn't include 3 of their major DLCs After Dark, Parklife, and Sunset Harbor. Sunset Harbor is understandable since it's their newest DLC, but weird for After Dark since it was their first and oldest DLC. I'm not normally a fan of their model, their regular $230 price for the full package is a bit ridiculous.

This though is a good deal, I'm in.

humble bundle is a well-known site and yes, they let you name your own price and decide how you'd like to distribute your payment.
Too much recoil from that initial comment... *ba-dum-tsssssss*

I got charged USD


Then 2 posts down someone said they always charge USD...

$1.5 CAD is higher than $1 USD, even with conversion fees. So in fact, we are losing out
Yeah, but I suspect on Humble's end, transaction fees take a bigger chunk out of smaller payments, percentage-wise—especially foreign ones. Also, an extra 8¢ per bundle isn't that big a deal.

Conversions on higher tiers are generally decent. For example, this one is $18 USD / $25 CAD. That's not far from a straight conversion, and probably cheaper after typical conversion fees.

$25 tier is a no brainer at this price... I spent so many hours on the vanilla game. Tried to get into the PS4 version but it wasn't the same without a mouse. Thanks OP!

Yep they all do. You'll get keys that you can redeem through a browser or Steam itself

I bought the base game and every DLC as soon as they came out. $25 is a no brainer.

I'm just worried if my system can handle all the add ons. I'm at 110k population with the traffic mods and it's a little slow. I've got a i5-8250 with 8GB ram.

I had stopped playing the game a couple of years ago, and restarted in lockdown.

Is the vanilla any good without the DLCs? Huge fan of Civ5 and if someone was planning on getting vanilla Civ5 I'd tell them either buy with the DLCs (minimum get Brave New World) or I wouldn't really bother. Can the same be said for this game or is the vanilla plenty of fun on its own?

It's definitely not "easy", as it's very open and you'll eventually run into challenges and wonder why.

Go watch Biffa Plays Indie Games on youtube.

i'm also fascinated how people don't just pay $0.01 or the minimum $1.50 to get the steam copy and run. like with toilet paper and RFD hoarding, you would think the majority of people are ******* that look out for just themselves.

part of why i'm asking so many questions is i want to understand and support a sustainable platform before i commit money to it. that and i saw alipay logo so just wondering if i'm supporting a CCP enterprise.
"Humble Tip" is Humble's cut. The default sliders seem to vary nowadays, and I'm not sure what's typical anymore. For Cities, it's 20%. For this music licence bundle, it's 45%. (That's the highest I've seen by far.) Most people probably won't touch the sliders. They currently have 10 bundles running, which isn't out of the ordinary.

Humble Bundle isn't only the 2-week bundles like this one. They have a traditional store, where their cut is 15%, I believe. They have a Humble Widget option for people to sell their digital content on their own website, where Humble's cut is 5%. They have a monthly subscription bundle called Humble Choice. In recent years, they've started publishing games--notable ones include Slay the Spire, A Hat in Time, Void Bastards, Temtem.

For early bundles, there was no minimum at all. Along the way, they've added $1 USD minimums for Steam keys, and now most low tiers set that floor to get any content. If they weren't OK with it, they'd increase the minimum. (And probably lose some impulse sales, granted.)

Humble Bundle is owned by IGN, which is owned by Ziff-Davis, which is owned by J2 Global, which is a public company HQ in Hollywood. (No idea about individual ownership beyond that.)
