Ouch. I guess Leonardo earns his money. Well, for game 2 I kicked itup a notch to Emperor ... and I had by far the best non-scenario game of Civ IV ever. This game's surprise was Armegeddon. And this time the surprise was on me, as many of my best units vanished when the Queens of the Sea were armegeddoned out from underneath them. Fortunately, no war was happening at the time. Great mod, and of course I am going to try v2. On a side note, the Fractal map generator has twice now generated very interesting maps for FfH games. But on the bad news front, the game has crashed CTD twice on me on the same turn, a turn or two after Armegeddon was built. I don't know if that's coincidencde or not. I've never had a FfH crash before. Well, just had to say thanks once again.
