    gps China notes the gradual build up of US military forces in the area of North Korea. But assumes it is all part of a western powers war game manoeuvre. N Korea might not have a big nuclear button but it has friends who have..So lets all unwind.

    I think we need to have a formal vote on this.

    My vote is that the situation is unique enough that we should resolve it via "ingame" UN mandate to assign a new "original" owner to any given former Arab city.

    UN votes take 18 turns, which mean 1 year of real time with current pace. When the civ dies it is very logical to apply -- next of kin principle. In liu of original owner -- the very next owner is the new original owner. And things can be returned to him by the 3rd and/or current owner.

    Perhaps I didn't make myself clear: I am not actually talking about ingame UN resolutions, but out of game (as in this thread) negotiations between the players, all representing their respective civs.

    I do not think sneaky backstabbing opportunists should be rewarded like this, they already got the spoils of war, now you want everyone to pretend that these spoils rightfully were theirs all along?

    The American people will not stand for this injustice! Why, we would be filled with fire and fury like the world has not seen before!

    I really cannot support your argument. If you cannot abide the ruling of the game's originator then leave. But I guess you are just venting of satirical steam.

    Ruling? What ruling? Right now we are supposed to be having a democratic discourse, not that you would know anything about that, you dirty commie! :p

    Does this only mean between the belligerents or does it also include third parties? Let's say civ A is at war with civ B, during which civ A captures cities 5 and 6 of civ B. During the peace negotiation, can civ A hand city 5 over to civ C and/or demand that civ B hands over city 7 to civ C? Is it different or the same if civ A and C are the same or different players/teams?

    Just some purely hypothetical theoretical legalese considerations the world's policeman, who is most certainly not currently conducting some backdoor politics in secret, is thinking about as a thought experiment. :mischief:

    Also, could we perhaps amend the rules to also include threats of war? Is gunboat diplomacy really so unrealistic, especially when all I demand hypothetical civ A demands of China hypothetical civ B is giving up cities they only recently conquered? Do I Does civ A have to declare war on them?

    He emailed me with yes. Now the hard part comes -- get the mod running on his machine and explain him all the 7 house rules on top of the mod rules. :crazyeye:

    Welcome aboard! :grouphug:I have updated opening post with the install instructions and links to download.

    No need for hack, send it to him directly, kiwitt posted his password online. I will advise our Romanian friend. I guess you need his password. But first he needs to install the mod and make it open your file.

    Good to hear that you are taking over Europe/Canada empire. I think the save is still with Imp K as he awaited news of your success at downloading and installing the mod. So if he has your email address that should be reasonably soon.
    For background email or ask in game I would suggest.
