    Sorry for the delay, but here we go :)
    Skipping map picking this time, so we can start faster.

    We are on a fractal surprise bag,
    Immortal diff with standard settings (no huts & events).
    Next map can be deity, but let's start a bit easier. In return i picked a not so good leader.

    Your starting pic:
    Spoiler :
    I made only 1 edit, putting you on ph (was green before) for a little morale boost ;)
    Also helps speeding us up a bit.
    In return, some AIs also got ph caps.

    Rules
    * Play until turn 45 & save your game.
    * T45 can be completed, but not advanced to 46.
    * no reloading, please stick with gotm style
    * no spoilers until i post deadline for submitting saves reached, please :) Means yup we want your thoughts about how you played, but later.
    * Lurkers can play ofc but no save or info posting, map should stay a mystery until this cookbook finishes.

    First set deadline = 27.11. (Tuesday, 1 week time)

    I will talk more about voting and how we proceed then.
    Remember, keep your thoughts until the deadline..save only posted.
    If possible, re-name your save please (i.e. FippyT45 if i would play).
    Good luck & have fun ~~

    Cool :)
    Once you played & posted your save,
    you can ofc check other saves as they come in.
    Can bring some fun until the deadline, when all kinds of chatting and comparing will start.

    I decided to give this one a shot. This has been a pretty fun map so far, can't wait to see how everyone else played it.

    @Swordnboard How do you draw those cute green lines? And maybe more importantly, how to delete them? ;)

    Zoom out, click on the icon above minimap that says "shows the strategy layer". Then "new line" allows you to draw, and "delete" or "delete all lines" will let you get rid of them.

    Forgot to save and played on a bit more. The earliest autosave was t48:( Out of competition anyway - dreadful luck with barbs and rather sloppy micro. Thought I'd share though, in case anybody wants to have a look at it.

    Can't really look at it, since it's a few turns after the agreed stopping point. :)

    Would def recommend setting autosaves to each turn (=0),
    also needed in (s)gotm or the HoF for safety.

    Edit file: CivilizationIV.ini

    Change to this or something simmilar:
    ; The maximum number of autosaves kept in the directory before being deleted.
    MaxAutoSaves = 100
    ; Specify the number of turns between autoSaves. 0 means no autosave.
    AutoSaveInterval = 1
