Hi i plan to have a hot seat game with three friends andni have a few questions. How many civs can a normal hotseat game play? If my friend is destroyed can he respawn as another civ? What map do you reccomend? I want one with a new world so when i discocer astronomy i can create a colony. I basicaly want a GEM style but not Earth, some random landmasses i can leave and explore a new world. If i create a colony on another continent can i quit playing as the civ i was and continue as the colony i created? Can i play as the english and ensure i create the American civ to play as? If not can i change some settings and do it manually? Has anyone completed a hot seat game to the galactic era? I ve been loking for a space map which one do you reccomend? I have a few more questions but i ant remember them.
