There should be laws against using names ending with .exe, always rings a malware alarm in my cerebrum if I see your name below threads =).
Played Settlers 1 to no end on the Amiga, random map gen FTW! Does any other Settlers have this feature? Can`t remember any apart from the first part and the (great) S2 remake certainly has none.
Also played S3 alot (1-2 online games aswell, I got hammered brutally so I never tried again), but the series lost it for me with the 4th part.
