    Is Civ6 for me?

    The Let's Play by AbsoluteZero was quite revealing. Thank you for suggestions. I will stay away for a while, until it's fixed.

    Is Civ6 for me?

    Hi there, I am a long time Civ 4 player, usually playing at Immortal, sometimes trying deity. I tried Civ5 several times, but it just didn't cut it. I think it's just stupid (my personal opinion). Is there a chance I will have fun with Civ6 or is it just another Civ5?

    'You traded with our worst enemy'

    range() isn't a standard function. It is a firaxis function. My guess is it limits a value to a range, in this case 0..4, because it's the only thing which makes sense.

    'You traded with our worst enemy'

    In your interpretation of the range() function. You are reading it as python, but it is C++.

    Will Beyond Earth be a dumbed down Alpha Centauri?

    I was watching several Videos and I fear for the worst. Keeping in mind that Civilization 5 was - in my opinion - a very uninspired game without depth (but good looking) but after all a great financial success for Firaxis. Will they do the same with AC? A stupid game for the masses, easy...

    OCC Club Mk 3 II: Huyana Capac

    2nd try. Raging Barbarians, Aggressive AI and Random Events on. I build 4 (four) warriors after my initial worker to do some minimal fogbusting and minimize pillaging. That worked better. 2160 BC - The Great Wall 2040 BC - Founded Judaism. It still wasn't taken, and the 25% production...

    OCC Club Mk 3 II: Huyana Capac

    Played Emperor, Raging Barbs, Aggressive AI. Lost in 2880 BC because of Raging Barbarians. Well deserved.

    Change game length from 500 to 750 turns

    I want to play a normal speed save without mods in epic speed and with BAT Mod 3.0. To achieve this, I load the normal save game, enter worldbuilder and save it again as worldbuilder save. It appears then under custom scenarios and I can change the settings to my liking. But the game ends...

    BST - How to not install as mod?

    Looking closer, I now see it actually installs in "My Games/Beyond The Sword/Mods", so this behaviour is probably intended. So there is no way to play with BAT without using is as a mod?

    BST - How to not install as mod?

    I have used BAT 3.0.1 with BTS 3.19 as a mod successfully. It's a great mod, but my saves need the BAT Mod to play, obviously. Not I try to reinstall it in user folders, but no matter what, it always goes into the MODS folder. I have completly uninstalled it, reinstalled with admin...

    Interesting Immortal Start

    It would still be easy even if it was normal speed :-) But there a things on a random map which have even more influence on the difficulty than the speed of the game, the existence of a mad techer on a distant religious lovefest continent for example.

    Interesting Immortal Start

    Really, try this map, I think its easy for immortal and the start is really awesome. But I would like to how better players may even squeeze more out of it than I got. After all I think it paid off.

    Interesting Immortal Start

    I did chose a random leader at Immortal, Epic, Fractal, High Sea level, No Huts and got this beautiful start with a small twist. It's Hammurabi/Babylon, not a leader that I prefer, but interesting nevertheless. The saves are with BAT Mod , I do have a world builder save available which runs...
