    Map Analysis reveals a resource seed of 4. There is a 4 whale-type-special site 3 tiles away from the starting position. Black clicking reveals that the above location is on land. Black clicking also reveals that we are on a continent. By the way, the world is 60x80; Normal map is 50x80.

    Interestingly, although the Land Mass and Land Form are set to create one very large continent, our start is on #2 so we may not be on the main one. I won't comment on the black-clicking issues while the poll is underway, but I do confirm that the map is 60 wide rather than 50. The last GOTM was a bit larger than Normal size, but the Normal multiplier for delivery payments and tech advance costs was still in force. No way to tell if that is still true besides playing for a while.

    Without black-clicking, any OCC players will have to confirm that the 4-Special site has access to the Ocean for off-continent caravan deliveries, or find some other way of getting a ship. I tried posting Diplomats on the shore and frequent map exchanges to look for passing AI ships once before and swore never to rely on that again...

    Untill it's actually disallowed, black clicking is still allowed. Whatever the decision is it won't take effect until GOTM 45.

    Oh, I did tweak the size a little, I forgot to note that.

    Hi

    Only for information, it's not so important for the game, but guys, Maria Theresa was the Empress of AUSTRIA. The Empress of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
    I wish you much fun!

    Bye

    No, I don't think the saves work with ToT.

    That's the normal default name given to the Germans for a female player from the game. :)

    DoM - Just wonderng when the results will be posted? Also, this is my first GOTM, so I am not too sure I submitted correctly. For example, when you ask for our "score", what does that refer to ? I think I gave you my (non-bonus) score and also computed my GOTM score. Even tho it seems more likely that you will do that for everybody (?).

    The results depend mainly on a couple of things:

    How quickly people get their results in
    How quickly people respond to queries
    How long it takes us (the GOTM staff) to review the games
    Time available to put it all together

    Yes, I double check all the scores for the games.
