    Hi. I was just wondering where we send the game when we finished? Thanks for your help.

    Everything seems "normal" to me. The game is behaving exactly like it usually does after you have searched the entire map or exchanged maps with others. Isn't this how the system operates? :confused:

    Yes, I went Bronze Working -> Alphabet -> Mapmaking.
    I wanted to have a 20 shield unit for rush buying 2 settlers before the trireme, so I didn't need Map Making that early.
    I often rush buy, say 8 -> 10 shields, then 16 -> 20 shields when I get more gold early in the game. Establishing 2nd, 3rd, 4th cities a few turns earlier makes a huge difference later in the game.

    But you already HAVE two settlers, and cramming two cities on the North Island means very little land area for production, so getting the first ship in the water sooner gets you to that nice 4-special spot on the South Island much quicker...

    Of course, this is a Bloodlust game, so maybe you just want to get to Polytheism first...

    Is there a required game version for GOTM? Currently running MGE.

    Nope, no version requirements.

    If you can load it, you can play it. ;)

    I can't load 'New_GOTM_25.sav', there is 'GOTM_26.SAV' only...

    It looks like the file is gone. I'm not sure where it went since the rest of them are still there.

    Does anyone have the starting save for this month?

    What is bad on 'GOTM_26.SAV'? I can live with no techs from conquest...

    GOTM26.sav is for this GOTM.

    Just to make sure, you know that the deadline to submit these has passed, right?

    That save was for MPG only, so it was redone as the file that is missing for 2.42. The starting civs are different and start in different spots.

    Otherwise, it is the same map and settings as what everyone else played.
