    Anyone have a save file for:
    With The Army You Have
    Win War Machine without training any units

    It's the only achievement i have left. I found some tips for it but still having trouble. Perhaps i should try playing on Settler. I'm not fun of scenarios and just want to get this over with.

    playing on settler isn't necessary, since it is a multiplayer scenario, you can play as both sides. A little more time consuming, but not very. Just set it up as a hot seat multiplayer game.

    Set up a hot seat game. I deleted all the German military units and quickly rolled over the German cities as France. Did not get the achievement as it considered me to be Germany instead of France as i thought it would. Will have to try again.

    I’ll check to see if I have a save file later, but it’s one of the easier achievements. I did it on Settler and took some German cities early on. Position and protect your artillary units and you will have no trouble knocking out each wave. They get weaker as the scenario progresses. GL!

    Thanks to everyone contributing some very nice save files!

    This far I'm only missing two achievements. Of course, one is Seahenge. I'm gonna go for this on my own as the save files depended on lots of rng. Just set up a game in which it could be possible.
    What are your recommendations for the best map setup to do this?
    I started as Kupe with settler diff in classic era on a duell pangäa map, intensity 4, no city states, high sea level, cold, wet and young earth age on fast game speed. But dunno if this is a good setup.

    The other one I'm missing is the Kupe Volcano. There are two save files, one is useless for me as it was played with a mod. The other file just has a different volcano name. Also reloading didn't help as the different name is always the same.
    Now I discovered something very odd.
    I played and saved my Seahenge approach after I founded the first city. After some exploring I found the right volcano on that map. So I loaded the save with the founded city, beelined for Toa and sent him to the volcano to find a different name on that one??!!??
    How are those names determined?? Is it rng on every load? Is it rng on every exploration? How does this exactly work?
    The save from this thread has always the same different name on the volcano, but no turns to go and my approach had a different name within the same game but with like 20 turns to go. I'm confused, can somebody help me with this?

    First to discover it names it, you were too lazy the second time around... just look for volcanoes and you will eventually find it

    Both these achievements are optimally resolved within Archipelago maps (Luckily .. my own save of Kupe's Volcano proves it, btw), AFAIC.

    And yes.. the volcanoes assignment scramble is a bit tricky -- sometimes they may remain as is while a few scripted events can wreck the Front-End hooks. We just can't enforce conditions during the Re-Load phases without static Seeding values which is nearly impossible in fact.

    I think I will set up a hot seat game with two Kupe on a duell map starting in medieval era, so I can instantly build Toa.

    For seahenge I will see if I'm gonna be lucky tonight on my already started game. Odds are good, with lots of ice to melt and lots of forests to chop and Stonehenge on a to be sunken tile.

    Ok, so this is the only save file I have for that game, but it's a good starting point for the achievement. I've already taken Metz and have it well fortified. The artillery is mostly in position and the initial German force is wiped out. It will take about 45 minutes to an hour to finish defending, but remember; for the Germans to win, they have to take Paris, so if you can defend Metz for the next 25 turns, that will be impossible and it shouldn't be a problem. I didn't save from this point because it was obviously won, but if you use this save file, just save every 10 turns or so and you can correct any errors you make. The key is protecting your artillery with the secondary goal of losing very few units in the process. Again, GL mang!

    I uploaded a Seahenge achievement on the previous page, so if you get tired of trying, that one works as it wasn't a mod and I did it last month after the patch.

    For the Kupe volcano achievement, I did that back in May, so I don't have a save file for it. I can tell you that you shouldn't reveal the whole map (if you do that and I usually do) because then the names aren't applied, so you can't get the achievement. Just build Toas, then send them in the direction of all the volcanos. It is time consuming as I remember, but there are a limited number of volcanos and knowing where they are is key. Use the East Asia map. Maybe start a game, reveal the whole map, make a note of where all the volcanos are, then start another game and set about discovering them. In my case, it was the last volcano I could find, maybe you will have better luck. Knowledge is power, GL!

    Thanks! Dunno why I didn't try your save before actually

    I will also try your strategy for the volcano.

    Edit:
    Made a game on eastasia map. Checked in the beginning and it said there are 11 volcanos on the map. In a hot seat game with only 2 human Kupes it took like 20 mins. First volcano I discovered was the one. This map setup will guarantee the volcano as the Maori only have 9 volcano names.

    I've continued on from your save file. The hard part here isn't winning. I never lost a unit. What's hard is NOT producing any units.
    Here's a save file for:
    With The Army You Have
    Win War Machine without training any units
    You should only have to end the turn to get the Achievement.

    I saw that it has been awhile since anyone posted a 100th Anniversary Achievement file so I wanted to post mine. I do have quite a few mods going (sorry), but this is ready to go. Just activate the naturalist on Crater Lake.

    got them all 5 by doing hotseats yesterday. Finding a nuke was the hardest one, I don't think they drop in duel maps.
    Cultists have a nuke here, just drop it on someone and you getb both chievs (don't forget to put it in your hotseat folder)

    You guys know that doing achievements are supposed to be fun and not a chore? You know that you don't need all of them?

    Deleting your civilian will trigger the achievement.

    Different strokes for different folks, my friend. For some, having them all complete by whatever means is the most satisfying. Others like to go after the only ones they find fun. Some ignore them. Etc.

    I'll just pretend you didn't say that.

    I actually only have all the achievements for games I really really like. That being Civ6 and Fallout: New Vegas. I believe those are the only 2 games I have all the achievements for. Though I'm close on several others like Wasteland 2. I did have all the Skyrim achievements on the base game, but since they released DLC/expansions, I no longer do. I never bothered with expansions for that game since I grew bored of it pretty quickly.
