    Starting location is decent for OCC. I have not had a chance to do map analysis yet.

    Welcome to CFC Comrade Oleg.

    The game was created in classic. You can play in classic or Multiplayer Gold or any other Civ2 version that can open the starting save.

    Multiplayer gold has super aggressive AI which reduces the diplomacy aspect of the game significantly. You are welcome to use the patch (available on Civfanatics) to restore diplomacy to the classic.

    By the way, GOTMs 171 and 172 are still quite active too. In case you want to join.

    The visible forest maybe 4-special, but it has no visible (I have not done black clicking yet) ocean access which is often crucial for OCC.

    I'm trying to play this GOTM, and trying to apply the attitude.exe patch from CFC, but it doesn't seem to be working... I try to patch, and then when I launch civ2.exe it gives me a "dummy" process that doesn't actually start the game and that can't be closed from Task Manager (have to restart the PC) Seems like it's not compatible or something, maybe with the 64bit patch? Can anyone give me the steps to follow in case I mucked it up?

    Asking here since I'm more likely to get an answer in due time. Not going OCC, so it's not super bad, but still.

    Sorry all,
    I've mistimed real-life on this one! Please could I have a few days extension? I'm nearly at my chosen ending.

    Thanks! I need to play on for five more turns to finish. Not sure how much time I will have tomorrow.
    ;) Yeah, sometimes it feels like work to me, playing a really focused game! But playing sloppily would be even less fun...
