    Still playing, but have question.


    Continuing 1924
    AD: Total Culture: 352912. Total Culture per turn: 4867 from 264 cities.

    I am not going waiting 3 years for settlers from the Foothold continent to get back to our land mass. Therefore, cities named HUD1 to HUD11 are founded. Some are building wealth since it is my intention to replace them with cities on our continent.

    MPP with Britain has 11 turns to run before it can be canceled.

    Greece, Canada, Scandinavia and, Turkey refuse to talk to us.

    Make peace with Arabia and Germany.

    IBT:
    Britain declares War on Greece. Lowlands declares war on Greece.
    Germany declares war on Canada.
    Lowlands declares war of Scandinavia.

    1925 AD:
    Total Culture: 358233. Total Culture per turn: 5321. Max 27 turns till victory by just hitting enter.

    IBT:

    Greece bombs us with a few Zepplins. No real damage.

    1926 AD:
    Total Culture: 363755. Total Culture per turn: 5522 from 289 cities. Max 25 turns till victory by just hitting enter.

    eCavalry kills 3 Greek troops and capture Troy (Helen was not there :mischief: ).

    Lawyers kill 2 Aussies.

    We reached the maximum number of cities limit. We cannot settle new cities.

    1927 AD:
    Total Culture: 369493. Total Culture per turn: 5738 from 295 cities. Max 23 turns till victory by just hitting enter.

    If no one objects in the next 48 hours I will finish the game. The plan I will use is: fortify all our units, put all cities building anything other than culture on building wealth, cash rush culture builds each turn and hit enter.

    I have no objection to ASAP ending it.

    1 turn troop cities probably help via disband troops more then wealth. You can check the math to confirm.

    Building and disbanding Troops is better with 1 exception.
    I am looking to end each turn as quickly as possible. The Domestic Advisor shows up on a Troop build and not on a Wealth build. Plus no Troop builds or conscripts means I do not have to move those units and disband them.

    Sign me up. After that marathon session, Please put me last.

    Civinator,
    500000 total culture was a little excessive.
    The 2 Victory Status Screens below show how close we were to a Domination Victory. I believe we could have won a Domination Victory on or about 1924 AD.

    350000 Total Culture seems about the right target. Even 400000 Total Culture would be a more reasonable target.

    Congratulations to all participants of that succession game and a big thank you very much for all your great reports and screenshots in this game! :clap:

    Jersey Joe thank you very much for your input about the victory settings for a civ-wide cultural victory in the next version of the CCM2.50 biq. :):thumbsup:
    22 x 7000 = 154.000 culture points less => the new victory setting could be 346.000 rounded up to 350.000 culture points. So your suggestion of a victory limit of 350.000 culture points makes a lot of sense. :goodjob:

    And another thank you very much for your screenshots showing the city views of some of your Japanese cities. I like them a lot, as they show another additional feature of CCM2, that was a lot of work. :)

    If we had played deity then 500k culture would have taken a bit less time. We were closer to domination because of the emperor setting.
    However, 350k is fine too, given the end game was sitting around waiting for the turns to pass at Emperor level.

    I lost internet for over a week and just got it back.

    I am willing to play AWM Pangea.
