    Have read most of the threads on this board by now, and wondering something, but have not found it here yet: what's the highest score other players have gotten?

    I know that the numerical value of civscore depends on the difficulty level, type of win, and number of rival civs, but suspect that the "Rating %" you receive should be translatable (and comparable) between games with otherwise different parameters. No?

    Almost done testing to thoroughly understand the Pollution Bug, and decided to run one of those tests to the end of the game, both to try out some tricks i learned here, and do a proof-of-concept test for a superb exploit i recently discovered. Just finished a test-bed game (Prince, 7 civs) with 4,545 civscore points without any cheats, which is a 272% rating.

    So i'm wondering... how does 272% stack up against other players' Civ1 games?

    Back before I learned a few exploits (aka cheats), my high scores (prince and king level) were comparable to yours.
    I've since fallen victim to the siren call of seeing how far I can push the score.

    Agreed. Nobody has a pet oyster. If the world's your oyster, you eat it, you don't pet it.
