    And so the debate begins... :mischief: That's why we are going to start out with a BTS Beta. It will give us time to upgrade the HOF Site for BTS and settle what should be legal or not. ;)

    i say we should be able to do it because it doesnt make much of a difference and many players are tired of seeing hinduism and budhism, the dominant religions. this will give it more flavour and make games more interesting.

    I say allow random events :D

    None of the events I've gotten so far are anywhere near gamebreaking...misclicking during an invasion has made more of a difference in one of my games than any quests ever did.

    The only big option you shouldnt allow because its gamebreaking is the unrestricted leader option.

    Will the beta period for BTS begin at the same time the HOF mod for BTS is released or will there be a period where BTS games can be submitted for beta before the HOF mod is released?

    The two should go hand in hand. No since in releasing one without the other.

    I have started a thread to discuss BTS Game Options. Please make any comments you care to over there.

    Well, it might take us a day or so to update the HOF for BTS submissions even after the mod is released.

    Sorry if this looks like hijacking of the thread, but I have some semi-noob questions.

    Can someone please list the details of how to use the MapFinder?

    Also, this one is causing folks to restart multiple times? How are you restarting without going back to the main screen and reselecting all the options including opponents, speed, map type, your civ, etc. Do you create a start file somehow?

    Thanks

    I'd suggest looking at the first post in the Questions/Answers thread.

    If you regenerate the map prior to settling and during the 4000 BC turn, it'll regenerate a new map with the exact settings you used from the Custom Game option.

    :confused: why prior to settling - it regenerates just fine after settling as well... All it needs to be is 4000BC (actually the start turn). Unless of course it has become illegal for the HOF recently :rolleyes:

    Yes - the only annoying thing is that if you do that the replay will tell you that you founded your capital in 4000BC and then again in 4000BC and then again...:crazyeye:

    ... and before starting map-finder you should create one permanent save, so each time map finder cannot regenerate, you load the permanent save and start map finder again ;)

    Is the 3.02 HOF mod still legal for submissions? I'm reading above about the 3.03 patch/mod but I'm in the middle of a 3.02 game.

    Yes, it is. We generally continue to accept previous versions of the HOF mod until a full month has passed since the newest version was released. In other words, we'll continue to accept 3.02.001 until around the middle of September.

    I think mainly they fixed some of the install/patch problems that have been driving us all crazy. Plus the Gyathaar fixed several crash bugs for the 3.03.001 HOF Mod that goes with it.

    I am not trying activly to get on the Hof, but I would be intrested in watching some sort of replay of what other people have played. I downloaded some of these files(?) but it said "The file you have selected is protected to ensure that the assest in your mod folder have not been changed"
