    I can export the save to worldbuilder if anyone wants to play this joke of a start.

    Yes, well.

    I found out that Huge Archipelago maps are tedious.

    Huge anything maps are usually tedious, and near the end the game crashes far too often from the memory overflow errors that have remained unfixed for years.

    Though I would like to play them, I find that anything bigger than Large maps is just too much of a drag after about 1000 AD.

    Civilization IV has never crashed for me.

    Maybe I should have said "more tedious than normal". :p

    I would, but I realized I rolled this with lock modified assets on, meaning I can't export it to worldbuilder.

    However! This start is very easy to recreate, simply start an Archipelago map. Chances are you'll start with a lot of ocean and little land, meaning the start position algorithm puts a ton of seafood on.

    Better than garbage & small.

    When I get tossed crapmap micro intense situations, I usually cough up one of those sub 2 hour (sometimes sub 1 hour) culture wins and move on.

    Maybe you are like me and got excited to play this map, only to find out that it was not available for download.

    Well, are you interested in playing a map similar to this one, with a lot of seafood Resources but with less of an immediate land connection?

    Maybe you don't want to play it, but you have a strategy that might work well that you'd like to share with others?

    If either of those cases apply to you, go and check out the Pre-game Discussion for Civ4 GOTM (Game of the Month) 53, which has even more seafood Resources to whet your lips! It's played in Civ4 Vanilla, though, not Beyond the Sword, so no Sid's Sushi.

    Here are a couple of related GOTM links to the rules and such, in case you have never played a GOTM before:

    This one isn't quite 6 seafood, though the starting position is probably stronger overall.

    Pericles/Pangea/Marathon/Large/Monarch



    Having played through to the Renaissance Era so far, I can say that getting Sid's Sushi on this map will be insane.
