There is a TCP/IP mode, yes.
However, as a Turn Based Strategy game, you don't need it.

There is no reason why players need to be online at the same time, other than the fact that you get through more turns if your schedules match.

When playing via Email/FTP or PBW, you take your turns whenever you like.
You can even play while the other people are sleeping or at work/school.

Indeed, all serious multiplayer is simultaneous mode, no matter what the file transfer method.

the old game civnet (civilization network) supported simultaneous mode over tcp/ip. the gameplay in multiplayer mode was perfect. i hope in se5 is that similarly too.

Default Re: multiplayer

Simultaneous here means that everyone enters their orders at the same time, and then all of the action is simulated all at once simultaneously, so that movement proceeds more or less fluidly, battles occur in the sequence that makes sense based on speeds of fleets and so on.
