Tip on When the AI switches to "Final" Cultural Mode

By ZPV in G-minor 74: Post 84:

http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpo...1&postcount=84

The AI will switch to Cultural Mode when they have three cities with either 100 Cpt or Influential Culture (5000C at Normal Speed).

By ZPV in G-minor 74: Post 91:

http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpo...6&postcount=91

Average # of Religions per city >= 3 is the third independent condition that causes an AI to go into Final Culture Mode.

What a nice cast of Opponents.

Those with the Spiritual trait might make the best PA partner, from among this motley group.

None of them have more than one of the Culturally desirable Traits.

Good luck with this Nightmare of a Gauntlet!

This will be hard. Why not make it really hard (impossible?) by throwing in the 'Aggressive AI' game option? This option doesn't just make the AI want to war. It has a direct effect on their willingness to attempt cultural victory.

First HOF OCC Cultural Victory?

WastinTime put forth this very early OCC Cultural Victory, back when most folks thought it was impossible:

A Good Analysis on How to Encourage (Discourage) an AI to Pursue a Cultural Victory

The discussion begins with the following Post by WastinTime:

http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpo...8&postcount=27

The above post is from a thread of a OCC Space Colony Gauntlet where one wants your PA partner to avoid Cultural Mode, but the knowledge contained within can easily be used to increase the chances of an AI going into Cultural Mode. So, have at it!

Here's the formula for determining whether an AI will go into Cultural Mode:

Enjoy!
