CDG 26 – Kamehameha Please see the CDG Series Discussion Thread to express yourself if you have remarks and ideas. Some maps use mods. This map uses the DLC map packs, so you will need “Explorers Map Pack”, “Scrambled Nations”, and “Scrambled Continents”. Please provide a screenshot of your victory turn. We also very much encourages pictures and stories related to the achievements and keys point in the game – because it’s fun to read for all of us! Restart or reload as you like, but in your write-up (which does not have to be long) please describe the challenges you faced. We welcome all comments and questions, but please use the SPOILER tag if you attach a picture, make a comment about which civs are in the game, about natural wonders, locations of ancient ruins, terrain features, luxes, resources, etc. In short, if it’s information you can only know by playing the game, don’t spoil it for others by divulging this information in the open. Thank you for your co-operation, and have fun! Before you download and play the map, please take a moment to speculate here in this thread on your initial thoughts and plans for the game. Will you settle in place? Will you try to found a religion? What are your plans for getting the most from the UA/UU/UI? What Victory Condition will you be aiming for? The suggested VC is Culture. Spoiler for opening screen shot : Spoiler for UA, UU, and UI : Wayfinding. Can embark and move over Ocean immediately. +1 Sight when embarked. +10% Combat Strength bonus if within two tiles of a Moai. You can train the Maori Warrior, which starts with the Haka War Dance promotion: “Enemy units receive -10% Combat Strength when adjacent to any unit with this promotion.” This unique promotion is retained when the unit is upgraded. Workers can build Moai on any coastal tile. Moai add +1 culture to the tile, plus an additional +1 culture for every adjacent Moai. (E.g., two Moai side-by-side each add +2 culture to the default tile yield. For three Moai in straight line, the middle tile gets +3.) Spoiler for map type and settings : Standard size, standard speed, standard number of civs and CS, etc. Map type is Small Continents Plus. Map was not altered but I used the Rotate Start Position mod and picked the best location. All VC are enabled. Spoiler if you are not familiar with Small Continents Plus : The in-game description reads: “Similar to Small Continents, but with extended scripting for chains of island and city-state placement.” Spoiler for hints about which AIs you might encounter : All opponents are hand selected for competitiveness and role-play. They all have a water-oriented UU or UA. Spoiler for difficulty : Easy. Only Brazil is better at CV (and they are not on this map). Your starting continent is sufficiently craggy for buffing the Moia.
