    I've added two pages of links to the GOTM Reference thread. The link to information, instructions, add-on files, start files, discussion and spoiler threads for games 17 to 27 inclusive.

    Please let me know if you think there should be additional links, or if you find a broken one. I also plan to add the thread links to the game pages on gotm.civfanatics.net in due course to ease two-way navigation between the sites.

    Apologies for cross-posting if you've already seen this announcement in a couple of other threads, but I figured it was a bit hidden, and might be missed.

    Alan, thanks for all those links :goodjob:. It looks like a lot of work went in to that! Anyway, I've got a couple of corrections/suggestions :

    1) The "As GOTM 21" for GOTM 24 should be "As GOTM 23". Similarly "As GOTM 21" for GOTM 23 should be "As GOTM 22" (I think, correct me if I'm wrong).

    2) GOTM 17 speculation link points to GOTM 18 speculation. I don't think there is a speculation thread for GOTM 17 (at least I couldn't find it).

    3) GOTM 24 1.29 Open start file link points to GOTM 23 start file.

    4) GOTM 21 had a pregame discussion : http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=56867

    5) The following speculation threads are missing :

    Wow! You've been busy, thanks for checking it out so comprehensively.

    I ran the add-on installers for gotm23 and 24 and they require you to confirm that you have played gotm21 OK. So I take it that they contain everything needed to bring 21 up to the levels for those games. I'm also pretty sure I've seen clarifications in the SG23 and MB04 succession game threads for 23 and 24 confirming this.

    Give the man a coconut :thumbsup:

    Another coconut!

    All added. Many thanks for finding them all. :goodjob:
    I've included the predator naval movement thread, although it's already referenced in civ-steve's first list.

    Is there any way to get GOTM files prior to GOTM #17?

    Edit: Nevermind, found it

    I'm hoping for a Caribbean island to go with my coconuts this time :).

    Alan, I've finished checking the file links and found that the following are bad :

    GOTM 18's PTW start file
    GOTM 19's PTW start file
    GOTM 19's MAC start file
    GOTM 21's 1.29 and MAC start files
    GOTM 22's 1.29 and MAC start files
    GOTM 26's 1.29 and MAC start files
    GOTM 27's 1.29 and MAC Conquest/Predator start files.

    Great Job, AlanH and Dianthus :goodjob: It will be a lot easier to keep adding new links for each month's threads, than it has been to find the old threads and reference them!

    @Dianthus: Hmmm! I really screwed up there, didn't I. It just goes to show how badly copy/paste can let you down! You get a small palm tree on a rock, but lots of sunshine :D

    Thanks for your help Ainwood. I assume you fixed my links rather than moving the files? This is becoming a great team exercise.

    The second Files and Threads reference post is now updated to include gotm28 and gotm29. I've also consolidated references for Mac and PC 1.29 in the last few games, as they are identical.
