1. Is there any DLC that is worth it? What should I/we avoid? Are all the wonder packs only good for single player?
2. What multiplayer DLC is there? Do both people need the DLC, or does the host only need it? I'm specifically looking into the terrestrial map pack since it has Earth maps
I still play this game and one of the few games I got the 1,000 point achievements. Incredibly addictive game sooo loved it.
The DLC is well worth it. Especially the wonders and artifacts. The new artifacts you find in the world soooo help the game and now having so many new ones you can discover while exploring really helps. They are most definitely worth it. I believe the wonder packs work in multi-player too if both people have them.
I believe both people need the maps downloaded for it to work. I actually found most of the maps to be a dissapointment. The best part was the new scenerios (i.e. everyone gets more techs, more barbarians in the world, etc. etc.) the new scenerios really helped add another dimmension to the game from the standard game play. But the actual maps were a little boring and I found the default random map generator to be way better for exploring.
