    Hey, guys, in this thread, we are organizing a MP of Col4 with the TAC mod, which is the best thing about Col4 so far. The mod can be found here

    This game is intended as a multi-session online lobby game. We will play, then save and resume the next time we are together online.

    So far we are 4 players interested and here we will discuss the settings and details for the game.

    I would like to play multi player. However I strongly suggest using mod, "Religion and Revolution" that is superior to TAC in every way (its based on TAC and heavily extending it).

    I suggest using a kind of "ladder style" where your score for several games determine to best players.

    I will host some a multi player game with this mod on Saturdays a 3 pm. CET (Paris time) the coming weeks to get things started. Hope to see you and that you will drop a reply.

    multiplayer but you will have to explain me how to start that kind of game.

    We may play TAC or RaR MOD.

    TAC Definitely (RaR for whatever reason doesn't work on my machine)

    But as I ment previously I cannot play a multiplayer game but I'm available for a pbem game, these games are long, 2+ years with 3 players but managing your empire without a turn timer well makes up for it and at some point the depth of the game unfolds with the human interactions, a great example is when an AI contacts you either initially or in the game this is largely disregarded grasping only whether it is peaceful or hostile but if a human negotiates a trade of fine cloth for a peasant girl (worker) or whatever can be imagined, this is far more entertaining than single player and even multiplayer dialogue.

    If we are in agreement that we would play a pbem game, I have a few suggestions:

    1. We play with at least 3 players or at most 4

    2. We use the TAC mod

    3. We find a 3rd party map maker from the TAC community to make this map (look over a generated map)

    4. We decide if each human player has his own shared landmass (with AIs) or we are all on the same continent

    5. We start with a starter city for each in the New World and we have a Horse Scout located at each human player's city for instant communication, on turn one we can establish each of our characters, peaceful, merchant, aggressive etc.

    Yes I would be willing to do this 4 player game would be ideal.

    Great let's lock down 2 more players, meanwhile I'll approach the TAC community for a map maker as soon as I can.
