I am in. I will be Carthage if that is okay!
Dec 31, 2002, 11:18 PM
I'll join. My Alliance game is drawing to a close anyway. :)
I'll take the Chinese. ;)
Dec 31, 2002, 11:22 PM
Proposed game options and victory options : -
Just leave the conquest victory on - the rest are kind of a distraction really, I find. :)
And no accelerated production I hope. Though it allows for faster play, but... sometimes things happen too fast. Like the AI keep snatching away Wonders fr us. :mad:
Difficulty at Emperor? Since there're three of us....
Add : Wildfire's preferences are almost complete opposite to mine. :lol:

Sweet, nice to have you KD!! Just hope we meet eachother all relativley quickly.
Lets have AP on (gotta for MP right?)
Victory Conditions: All except for Space. Too easy sometimes.
Regent or Monarch is fine by me.
Roaming barbs maybe? Get some quick 25 gold :p
Tell me if i forgot anything...
Jan 01, 2003, 01:51 PM

Jan 01, 2003, 02:48 PM
email@example.com is mine

I kno this sounds stupid so forgive me. I signed up for another game and just found out that i made the list so im gonna hole off on this game for later use. If u 2 r availible ull be the first to know when ill start the game again. Sorry for the inconvience.
Jan 01, 2003, 09:03 PM
Sure, no problem. Though I can't really see why you can't play more than 1 PBEM... :confused: This would be my 5th current PBEM game. :mischief:
Jan 02, 2003, 12:50 AM
U know what ur right, lets do this!! whats ur email and ill write to u both and tell u the turn sequence, but we need to iron out specific world and barbarian options and vic conditions. oh and plus - i have been hearing of a way to change the diffculty! Is there any merit to these claims?!
Jan 02, 2003, 06:16 AM
I've PMed you my email. ;)
Let's continue discussing the game issues here, in this thread, so that we can all see all the points at the same time. Plus, other interested posters may have something useful to input as well... ;)
I've no particular preferences, apart fr those stated in my posts above, since we're playing an 'allied' game. But let's not make it too easy for ourselves; remember it'd be like playing 3 civs in an SP game. ;)
Jan 02, 2003, 09:45 AM
I agree with KD's post about what we should have. I agree that all victory conditions off except for conquest. NO AP!
Barbarians on roaming. Tried them on restless yesterday, and they are somewhat of a pain. AND please regent level. Or monarch if you have to.
Jan 02, 2003, 10:02 AM
Monarch it is then. :)
Jan 02, 2003, 10:06 AM
Everything else if fine? If so, make sure it is good for you Sage, tell us the game order, and we'll be on our way!
Jan 02, 2003, 01:41 PM
ok i should be done at about 5 or sonner, ill post it all here
Jan 02, 2003, 07:44 PM
oh and screenshots r a must and speaking of (Noob question...) how do u send one?
Jan 02, 2003, 08:35 PM
Any world settings is fine by me; since we're playing an allied game. ;)
To post screenshots, first you need to take screenshots. You can do this by using the print-screen key and then copy and paste to some graphical program. I just use Paint, which comes with Windows. After cutting and sizing the pix, will save it as a .jpg file.
Then upload to CFC's uploads server. The link is the rightmost (in the chain of links below, below the ad banner) and called "Upload File". Once you've uploaded, just do an IMG tag to it.
I think this is also explained in the FAQ in the Gen Discussions forum. ;)
Also, pls don't post email add in the 1st post... At least mine; don't want it to be 'abused'. ;)
Jan 02, 2003, 08:57 PM
Please don't show my email either.
*WildFire444 looks at the game order and realizes he is last.
Thought i replied second :hmm:
Doesnt matter though!
Jan 03, 2003, 04:23 PM
sorry about the wiat i been really busy today, still am, ill send it asap.
Jan 03, 2003, 07:22 PM
What are the final rules?
Jan 04, 2003, 12:59 PM

Ok starting position nothing special
Jan 06, 2003, 01:45 AM
The Chinese - Turn 1
Moved settler SW. Nice starting position. :)
Our world location is somewhere in the almost exact middle.

Jan 06, 2003, 02:21 AM
You checked the Difficulty level? What is it, Chieftain or Monarch?

Jan 06, 2003, 09:58 AM
I haven't played it yet (school).
But wouldnt you have to wait to check the difficulty till the second turn when it shows how many points we have?
Jan 06, 2003, 11:21 AM
When you first load the game, there's a msg box, probably saying like "Chairman K-D of the Chinese blah-blah-blah" and the difficulty level as well. I know I saw it; but wasn't really paying attention to it, so didn't bother to keep note. ;)
Jan 06, 2003, 01:18 PM
To answer the above question (drumroll please :band: )
It is indeed Chieftan
But i did happen to get a nice starting position!
Jan 06, 2003, 07:57 PM
Darn! Let's restart....
Jan 06, 2003, 08:45 PM
Has any game worked in other than chieftan for hotseat and PBEM in the last like 3 weeks? Don't know if we are going to be able too...
Jan 06, 2003, 08:49 PM
I think it may have something to do with the 1.14f patch. :rolleyes:
I started my Alliance game with 1.07f patch and it turns out OK, even after we 'upgraded' to 1.14f.
Jan 08, 2003, 10:55 AM
Okay i wouldnt mind restarting it but is Sage even here anymore? Havent heard from him in awhile...
Jan 08, 2003, 06:49 PM
Let's wait awhile, until we hear from him... Might be busy or something. ;)
Jan 10, 2003, 04:46 AM
Just to inform you all...
I have heard (from the statistica thread) that Sage has been inna car crash and broke his leg :(
Explains his absence I think :p
PS. Do Gooder...
Jan 14, 2003, 01:26 PM
Hey guys, sorry for the absence but i was in a car crash so i sent the game, sorry about the difficulty, but i set it on maonarch but o well.
Jan 14, 2003, 01:29 PM
So, have you made a new game on the right level? Or are you going to not do this PBEM game anymore :(
Jan 14, 2003, 07:46 PM
Ill try to restart it but how do i change the level correctly?
Jan 14, 2003, 08:07 PM
Its right at the top of the page :p
