    As far as I am aware there are no changes from Buffy 3 with events or Global Warming.

    I'm not aware of these, are they documented somewhere?

    Just checked and the Global Warming Mod is still active like Buffy 003, I do have a Marathon / Time game on the go to check though.

    Would be good to get others testing as well though!

    OMG! I'm doing the BUFFY Beta gauntlet with Willem. I just got dogpiled by Shaka, Victoria, and Zara and I have no hope of pulling out of it.

    What a shining example of sub-optimal play. :lol:

    These issues are present in 003 but it would be great if we could resolve in 005.

    Hmm before i start, what are some recommended settings for the most useful testing needed?
    With events & barbs for example? Any map scripts, size or other settings?

    Thanks!

    Events and Barbs would be useful. I've done a fair bit of testing on Tiny and Small maps with Pangaea and Big & Small so anything other than those would be great.

    I found no new bugs, played around a bit on random deity games (could not get motivated much for Monarch, sorry :)).
    Seems all stable and good from what i can tell.

    I haven't found any glaring issues. In fact none at all. I'm trying to fix the bug where the sea sentry icon and function doesn't show up. I'll let you know.

    I was the only person to submit for the Gauntlet and we really need more people to test it out so please have a go at the new one:-

    Settings:
    • Victory Condition: Space Colony (though all victory conditions must be enabled)
    • Difficulty: Any
    • Starting Era: Ancient
    • Map Size: Standard
    • Speed: Normal
    • Map Type: Continents
    • Must Not Be Checked: No Barbarians, Random Personalities, No Tribal Villages, No Random Events
    • Civ: Any
    • Opponents: Must include Ethiopia (Zara Yaqob), Mali (Mansa Musa), Mongolia (Genghis Khan), Netherlands (Willem Van Oranje), Russia (Stalin), Zulu (Shaka)
    • Version: 3.19.005 Beta
    • Date: 10th January to 9th February 2018
    Must not play as Inca.
    The earliest finish date wins, with score as a tiebreaker.
