    Epic speed will take forever.

    I'm not keen on advanced starts either we had problems with some players not getting the correct number of points in Scienidez's Oasis game.

    Good luck though.

    This will be my first PBEM so bear with me.

    Tokugawa

    GMT -4, Florida

    Tech Trading and Tech Brokering on.

    Advanced Start: I would prefer not to use it but if so as few points as possible.

    This game might take a decade but I don't want to go to Normal speed.

    I know you may be joking about a decade but your suggested changes need a bit of explanation.

    I was joking. :) ParadigmShifter said that Epic would take forever and I kinda agreed but I'm cool with it because I hate Normal speed. I usually play Marathon but that just isn't possible for PBEM, at least I don't think it is.

    What do you mean about my suggested changes need explanation?

    From OP:
    I was suggesting that we go for a low number of points because I don't really like advanced start (I never use it for single player so I don't really know how best to use it, cities vs. techs vs. workers vs. anything else). I guess that would be 600 on the OP's scale. It isn't a huge deal tho.

    and yes this game will take a LOOOONG TIME. i hoping it last until Civ5 1st expansion pack. by then you should be able to pick up Civ5 for $20. the fair game price.

    Wow that is crazy. I actually grew up in Clay county but now I live on Baymeadows.

    I think we should wait for at least a few more people. Otherwise the game will just turn into a question of who can slaughter the most AI's the quickest and get a huge lead on everyone else. If we are going to play a really long game I would prefer we stay as equal as possible for awhile. That's why I think tech brokering should be on, when it is off it allows the tech leader to trade techs for gold which helps extend his tech lead but no one else can trade techs. There's a reason it isn't allowed in HOF.

    as i understand it it in tech trading you must have researched the tech in order to trade it. in tech brokering you can trade any tech you acquire.

    I think it is the opposite. Tech trading allows techs to be traded freely and No Tech Brokering means you can't trade a tech unless you researched it yourself. If you do No Tech Brokering it means only the tech leader will be able to trade techs which gives him a huge advantage.

    and as i reread the custom game setup i see i was wrong in saying you were correct. i was originally correct. tech trading is just the ability to trade tech you have researched. while tech brokering give you the ability to trade tech that you have not researched.
