    It means that a civilization that is destroyed will be restarted as a new civilization with the same color. After a certain year this won't happen, I think.

    I have a version that runs on Win 7? Runs even better with Win XP compatibility mode on.

    Give me a shout at davestar7 at gmail.com if you want more info!

    Loving this save by the way, I will be having a bash at it!

    The third game I ever played on Civ2 was as Sioux on a small map with 5 other rivals and I started, just like this game, on the north pole. That was over a decade ago. I never ran into a similar situation again. Interestingly, I played that game and did not abandon it. I found a small 8-tile island off the north pole and put roots down. I played for conquest and despite being a novice (it was my third game after all and I was playing with a Civ1 mentality) managed to destroy 4 out of my 5 rivals before game time ran out (2020). If I had half a dozen more turns I could have won.

    Thinking of getting back in this... haven't played in ages... so this one is probably going to be a disgrace. :p

    Ufff... it was.. I survived until 2020 and even won a war or two, but with a GOTM Score of 16,371 you must forgive me for not submitting. :D

    It wasn't a normal Deity game. So I guess that the GOTM scores won't be very high this month. Great to see you've returned to civ2.

    I always submit no matter how poorly I do. Part of the appeal of the game in this forum is how many others are playing. In fact, if it was up to me I would change Hall of Fame calculations by adding a small bonus for turning in a game. We already have such a bonus for attempting OCC. Any time you attempt OCC you will get a small bonus (.15) regardless of how well or poorly you do. I believe there should be a similar small bonus (.05 perhaps) for turning in a game. After all, there is a difference between a player who played once and got a bronze medal and a player who has played 10 times but managed only one bronze medal.

    Just one submission? Wow. I already deleted my game though. And replaying is against the rules.

    I also beg for one week extension. I really like to submit this game. Normally it is unimaginable for me to loose a game. But seeing the starting position I was not sure.
