Hello forum members, and welcome back to Monarch Student Prime! I have decided to come back to Civ 4 after being gone for some time and being rather disappointed with Civ 5. So here I am again, to resume my hosting duties in Monarch Student Prime. I appreciate CivilizedTiger's attempt to restore this series about half a year ago in his Freddy game, but now its time for MS Prime to come back swinging! But enough about that! Let's turn to our fearless leader, the best diplomat in all of Civ! Oh yes. Everyone's favorite featherhat is here to lay down the smack on these AIs! I always like spiritual, being a good all-around trait to abuse diplo and to quickly change civics when needed. Aggressive is aggressive. Easier spawnbusting early on and a more powerful military base. His UU is the Jaguar: A resource-less swordsman that is cheaper as well and starts with woodsman I, but has 5 strength rather than 6. I quite like it, especially the it being cheaper. If used with siege support, the strength doesn't really matter a whole lot, and that extra hammers you save means that you can pump out more military. His UB is the Sacrificial Altar: Absolutely awesome. Quite often cited as the best UB in the GAME, this courthouse replacement is cheaper, but cuts whip anger in half. This is simply amazing to the point where whipping has a more amazing return than before. Whip til ya bleed with this UB! The Start: A nice plains hill to start on as well as corn, although it will not be irrigated pre-CS. The wines are alright, providing decent early commerce if cottaged early and average commerce when Wined. Not a bad start, I've seen worse. I will try to vary the maps more from now on, this is fractal though, as it is my first host in a while, but I will try to put out some different map types. Huts and Events are OFF, add events in the custom scenario if you wish. (just make sure to cover the top part with your hand so you don't see the AIs ) And a cut-and-paste from Meatbuster's Monarch Student games: Save the file and place it in your Documents/BTS/Saves/WorldBuilder folder. Then unzip it into your Documents/BTS/Saves/WorldBuilder folder. Then use Playing a scenario to play your desired level. Or use custom scenario if you want to remove huts and/or events. Recommended Checkpoints: *1000BC or 1AD *500AD *1000AD or Liberalism *Victory! Please remember to put the journals of your adventures inside spoiler tags. For Monarch+ players please try to add archery back to the barbs in WB. If you don't, AIs will capture cities with archers very early in the game, which is no fun. If you prefer easymode barbs, that's fine too, just don't go wondering why an AI captured a barb city in the very early BCs! Thanks go to TMIT for making an excellent map creation guide and to mjg5591 for getting this series back on track! And finally, the save!
