    THis might be better, why not play a game thats set to 915 turns or so. Of course the amount of techs are doubled, vast erray of resources 600+ units you know what mean a nice long mod perfected over time to become edited into flawless territory.

    IM talking Rise n Rule. Now you can enjoy a game and play as long as you want win or lose, and its all new the whole way through. Did I mention its got a complete pedia. YA.

    I have seen a few post questions and they were in 6xxx AD. Not sure what you do at that point, but even if you are the only one left you can play on.

    That sounds really boring to me. :confused: After I win a game, I can't wait to start up a new one.

    ha usually after i win a game (like through cultural victory) i stop caring about rep and basically i stop caring about losing the game and let loose my units and flatten the other civs to pancakes.

    i like to win peacefully and then turn into a nasty leader after the win. not sure why...

    I was under the impression that there was a 1000 turn limit...

    yeah I can't even keep playing after victory is assured. When I have about 20 turns left to get 100k culture, or I am just mopping up pathetic level 5-7 towns of a broken civ to hit the dom limit. Or have a total tech lock on the game and building parts for the SS. I just end turn, end turn... and start over.

    Are you people sure about this ?
    I think there's a limit. I remember being exited swiftly (10-25 turns) after the "Let me play a couple more turns."

    Yeah, you can go on ad infinitum after any victory condition is met. HBDragon88 used to post here way back when and he had a lot of games into the 3000AD range.

    I don't remember. I did a search to see what he said, guess I didn't put the right terms in.

    I'm pretty sure he played on Chieftain, so the games lasted a while, even up to 2050 you're not that far advanced.
