For reference, I have been a lurker since Caesar3 but usually stay a few years behind the curve in gaming. So I just got Empire in the box for Christmas. But this initial download from Steam is ridiculous. 16G update? whats up!? It is like I am downloading the whole game!
Yes you have heard it before but this is another voice in the wilderness where there is limited download capacity. It is going to take me 6 months to download at this rate. Is there no work around? I definitely have an investment in time ahead to play this game. I just hope it actually runs well after. Guess I should have paid more attention to the forums. Thanks for letting me rant. If there are any suggestions beyond patience, they would be appreciated?

Okay so I finally figured out Steam is trying to download the whole game and not installing from the disk. I found some suggestions on other forums and followed Steam guides for installation but nothing has worked so far after multiple reinstalls. Basically somewhere in the process the disks are not installing the game. Any suggestions to why this is happening?

12.28 Edit: After much searching of forums I have succeeded. What worked for me, uninstall all programs(empire and steam), clear all remnants of steam from registry and common files. Start disk without downloading steam client from web. Install from disk successful.
But now downloading remaining updates from steam at 6.2kbs.
This still may take six months.
Good luck to all and happy new year.
