    All victory conditions enabled, unfortunately... though I suppose Conquest would be possible in theory.

    Some great tricks in there - I'll certainly try out the AP declaration in one of my own games.

    OOOOOOOHHHHH, evil Willem. First declaring peace and then using that cheap trick. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Woot, in your face. Hehe, the war is going nice but a conquest will still be tough and very time consuming. But if you can pull it off, GREAT. Keep the story coming. Nobody close to a cultural victory btw?

    It's a F****** great story, just read up on it, although I would imagine it being even better with pictures after the fourth page.

    Thanks.

    The pictures will reset in about 24 or 48 hours... try again Jan. 12 or 13.

    And fine, I will get off my butt and make another photobucket account or something so we don't have to keep waiting 3 weeks for each update. :) It seems like every time I update, my entire bandwidth gets eaten up within a week, necessitating a long break!

    I'm in a really crappy mood due to woman troubles. Trouble being, I no longer have a woman. Sorry. I'll try to update later.

    ugh I find that when I have other things on my mind I tend to screw up my game completely. Just take your time axident. Just have a nice evening with some friends and some music, some beer... and everything will be allright :D

    Thanks. Ironically a woman of Dutch/Swedish extraction kinda tore out my heart recently. But the Dutch shall prevail in this game nonetheless! I am writing the endgame story, but I'm trying to skip the boring parts.

    “Battle report, Tromp?” Willem asks as the Dutch leaders gather in the war room at Amsterdam palace.

    “We’ve stormed the two islands west of the Sumerian homelands, sir!”

    “Good. Declare peace with Suleiman.”

    “But sir, we’re kicking his sorry army’s butt!”

    “Yes but he’s gotten some lucky ship strikes against our navy. Plus he’s not the threat, Ragnar is. We want to keep him strong enough to war with Ragnar without dying too quickly. He’s already losing his border cities.”

    Maarten Tromp sighs. “Yes sir.”

    *RING RING*

    “Willem speaking.”

    “Willem, old buddy old pal, how would you like to declare peace with us?” Gilgamesh says sweetly.

    “Okay, and you can have Girsu back. That’s one craptastic city!”

    “We agree. In fact, it’s so bad that we won’t let you gift that city back to us.”

    “What?!”

    “Enjoy the city maintenance costs!”

    “&#%)!”

    ******************************************

    Spoiler :




    We don’t want Gilgamesh capitulating to anyone other than us, so we spare him the misery of the AP holy war. (1337)





    We capture the entire Sumerian island south of the former Sumerian home cities. (1344, 46)



    Amsterdam spawns a Great Scientist, who goes to sleep. (1347)





    More amphibious attacks. Ships and bombers blow away the culture and injures defenders, mobile artillery redlines defenders, and tanks mop up. (1350, 52)



    We sue for peace with Suleiman; we don’t care for any more of his lucky ships to win fights against our navy, plus Ragnar is our target, not Suleiman. Suleiman is just a useful idiot who is taking some of Ragnar’s punches for us. (1353)





    Girsu is a terrible city, but whatever, we take it with the idea that we’ll gift it back to him to get +diplo points. Gilgamesh capitulates. We open borders and gift him spare non-military resources, plus oil so he can field a navy to beat back Ragnar’s navy when we DoW on Ragnar. (1354, 58)



    Wow, Girsu is such a bad city that Gilgamesh doesn’t even want it back! Huayna Capac isn’t stupid enough to accept it, either. (1359)









    We’re getting very close to Domination victory. (1360, 62-64)



    Ragnar pillaged the hell out of Korea’s seafood, but it looks like Korea has rebuilt its fishing fleets and thus does not need our clams anymore. (1367)



    The Viking death machine marches ever closer to Suleiman’s capital. (1369)



    Due to our rush in capturing Sumerian cities, we lost a few tanks when they went in without sufficient air and artillery support, but we still have 63 tank divisions, 41 mobile artillery divisions available. (1376)



    Wang Konstipated is about to have an Operation Bowel Movement to flush him out of Colossia forever. (1389)



    We de-weight Inca and Suleiman, as Inca is not a spy threat anymore, and Suleiman is unlikely to sabotage us when he’s an ocean away, especially with as many war enemies as he has right now. (1392)



    This is the endgame. Might as well go Theocracy. (1394)

    Just read your update. I definitely like operation bowel movement lol. and i'm not sure if this would work, but when i want to give cities back, I usually do it through the city manager tab (i forget it's actual name) that has info on what cities are churning out. you might be able to make another colony out of it if you really dont want it.

    ps: i really shouldnt post when im drunk lol. I have a friend who loves civ but never played beyond the sword and i told him about the dutch and he flipped and even knew who the leader would be so i had to show him your thread lol

    If you take Wangs cities and keep them it should put you over the threshold right? Good luck and incredible game.
