    Since we start with only one settler, obvious size-one trick is obvious. Maybe twice? We are in Emperor after all.

    Dunno if I'll be able to play, because college started+my CD is home and I have patch/hexedit issues. I tried to edit my Civ2 file using the strings provided here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=6297&page=2 but they don't match up at the offset 0000163A30. Maybe it's because I'm using Mastermind's patch for 64bit machines? I don't have access to 32bit...

    Ressource seed is 2, 18 or 50 (by my estimation). There is nothing hidden under the grass we can see.

    Dear Ali, and all,

    I ask for a deadline extension to the end of the month please.

    Things got very very busy for me a couple of weeks ago and will continue that way for another two weeks. I had played a long way in this game before then. But with having no more time before the 17th deadline, even playing quickly, I know I will not be able to finish.

    Apologies for starting the spoiler and then going quiet; I will get back to it eventually!

    My first GOTM submitted! I went for mid-conquest (I am not yet skilled enough to try a real early conquest).

    Good job I only just looked back at this forum after putting in a lot of time yesterday to finish by the 8th. The whole week could have been taken up with it otherwise! Hope to catch up with the spoiler later today.

    I expect everyone knows, but just to be sure the reason the % column for Jokemaster is blank is that the "game-end" file supplied is saved AFTER the last city is taken, which means the game end sequence does not run when the file is reloaded. If you have the English messages, the Foreign Minister says "We have not yet made contact with other civilizations."

    Thanks for the explanation. I too was wondering about that.

    Reminder: save before taking the last rival city or killing the last respawned settler (with respawns this sometimes means several consecutive saves). For space ship players save at the end of the turn before your space ship lands.
