I downloaded the game from Amazon for 1,79 and can play it in a Dosbox in Windows. However, I want to play it on my Linux laptops, too. I can play the Windows version over WINE which then starts Dosbox, but that's taking up too much ressources from my old acer D270. Therefore, I need a working DOS-Version of the game. Does anyone have one?

Another great game I also own. To bad the download button is gone. And I had made a better cheat some years ago for this game. Sneaky sneaky.
God Bless all!

it's glorious to see how people rate the game good and find that the download disappeared.
well, if you rate it too good then they start selling it, it's pretty simple, do not rate it good even if it is the best game in the world, that way you will always have it free for download

Not surprising to find GoG buying up the rights to abandonware then packaging it with Dosbox and selling it. If they didn't do that folks would be able to dowload games like this for nothing along with the free Dosbox and play them. What is slighly surprising is that GoG are a subsidiary of CD Projeckt Red, fucking shame on you guys, we expect better ethical standards from you.

This is a real shame... I own the GoG version, but it's shit and won't play so basically copyright is probably stopping me having a working version of the game. Fuck you GoG!

Figures that some jerkwads would "Buy" the rights to this game and sell it to keep it out of the hands of people who actually bought it when it was new. I wonder if they do actually buy the rights to old games or do they just charge for pirating software.

Sid was cranking out so many "sims" in those days everyone was expecting "Sid Meier's Trash Collecting Sim" or "Sid Meier's Bum On The Streets Sim" any day.

Thank you very much for this. :D
Playing this game again is like meeting an old friend.

Better than the remake done a few years ago as a standalone on the Civ Iv engine to me other than Alpah Centaury this is still the most fund Sid Meier game to replay.
