Too bad the only space game is a OCC... :p Tried a game but unfortunately Justinian grew too big, vassaled half the AIs and won diplo, when my ship was half way done. Maybe better to play this with vassals off.

Sorry :)

Feel free to propose a an appropriate gauntlet!
Didn’t mean it negatively… :) I like the occasional OCC, though I like regular space more. In any case, I’m happy with any game hof and gotm staff still throws at us after all these years! :)

Vassals or no vassals, I am having a hard time getting a good game out of the gate... :sad:

Guess I should prioritize starts that are on the edge of the map. Or roll a bunch of NO BARB maps :lol:

Well, the panther was mostly harmless :lol: The land was pretty good indeed, unfortunately capital was located in the middle of the map.

With no close neighbors and so much land I around cannot see how you can survive this barb onslaught. They enter borders at turn 26.

To the HOF staff:

Hi, I submitted a game a few weeks ago (this one, game 5), but it does not appear in the score list.

I checked my game on settings and cannot find any accidental deviation.
Settings displayed:
Spoiler :

(NB: in the rivals list on the top is Bismarck, you can see Exp/Ind traits, Below Churchill is Hammurabi extra added, but that should be oke)

I'm pretty sure I submitted the correct files.
Could this be a space race / space colony thingy?
Or do you see any deviation?
The game status in my submission list is ''published''. Does that mean it's accepted or can it also be rejected? Do I get a notification when it's rejected?

If of any relevance the file names start with ''Powerfaker Challenge 23-5''.
One states 4000BC, the other space vic + date

By the way, both start + end phase with these settings are pretty nervous.
I failed to squeeze out the GW properly at a few attempts. Good thing was that the AI initial progress suffers a lot from raging barbs. Still, in the end phase you need a bit of luck with balance among the AI. That is not something you can totally control with one city.

That was it, sorry.

Need to see if I can remove that from the admin panel without impacting historic games.

I should have answered these as well - the status meanings can be found here (although we only update once a month now), but it's basically submitted -> approved -> published, if we do have to reject a game you will get an email or a private message explaining why.

Thanks for clarifying, for me and maybe for others. Saves me the trouble to dig in when I don't see submissions being listed right away.
