    If the computer doesn't find enough "good" sites for 7 civs. Try starting a game with 7 civs on a v small world eg. 30 x 40.
    Sometimes there are only 5 civs even though you ask for 7.

    I did not realize how "small" this map was till I made my own for comparison - things are REALLY tight! And the Y=20 part means you basically have one wide continent and a little water. Once I tried this a few times in MapEditor I decided this would dominate my strategies. 40x40 would have given same number of tiles but more options for randomization of terrain.

    Do I still have time to finish GotM #21? Also I simply forgot to save at 1 AD but I did remember 1000 AD will 240 AD be alright? How do I send it in when I am finished anyway I did not see anything on how to send in a finished game but I will look again. Any help with this would be appreciated! Btw I have never played on such a long map this was very weird...lots of bottlenecks, phooey! Sasebo :)

    When is the closing date for this game of the month cos it'll be five days before i'll ever see civ 2 again.



    BTW do people often get NEGATIVE percentage scores?
    It happened to me once on deity level. I got -253% (i think)
