    yeah but knowing you, 100 turns is more than enough to play and win a full game ;)

    Hooray GoTM! Maybe I"ll actually get around to finishing some of these in 6.

    I know I've been too hesitant to chop things early, but I tend to look for early production and even more so as I know Rome wants to get cities out and trample people with the UU. I'm moving the warrior NE and debating between the Settler following NE or going SE. Have to check the save to see if anything in view is a hill.

    Hi,

    This seems like a great idea, I'm going to give it a go. I'm not the greatest Civ player (even though I've played every one since II), so this seems like a great way to improve. I haven't even won a game in 6 yet, still figuring things out and restarting, and that's just on Prince, so I assume this will be a challenge for me. Looking forward to it everyone!

    When you download the save, you need to save it to the Civ6 Save folder. On my computer, it is:
    D:\Documents\my games\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Saves\Single

    The game will not find the file unless it is in that folder, as far as I know.

    edit - Browd is correct, changed the location above to reflect his information. Apologies.

    The save file needs to be in the saves\single subfolder for Load Game to see it.

    Sadly I can't continue playing (I got to turn 100) because Steam got corrupted on my laptop. Since some files remained I can't re-install it, as the installation demands an empty folder. My library of games that I own is gone as well.

    You should be able to delete all the steam files except the .exe and the folder(s) where your games are installed, then run the steam.exe and it should correct the problem.

    Cool!
    I started lurking this forum before the release of CIV VI and saw these threads for V and thought it looked fun, so I am gonna try joining from the start now with VI.

    My very first VI game was actually a science victory with Trajan on King (huge Pangea map with all the leaders). Thus I feel fairly certain that I will be able to win this game, but my personal goal for the game will be to try to unlock the achievements "Flight Slingulator" and "Missed That Day In History Class"

    I should be able to delete them, since I am supposed to have administrator rights, but I can't.

    Yes, took me some time to find how to enter it in Windows 10. In safe mode I was indeed able to delete the files. So I'm playing again :)

    Is it possible for future gotm, we exclude the use of stealing settlers early (AI exploiting)? It might be fixed in the patch, but just curious. It really ruins the game outcome, by the overwhelming power of stealing settlers early. It feels roughly like automatically getting 100% settlers from goody huts on exploitation level.

    I found out how to disable the Aztec dlc without manually removing it.
    This line
    Code:
    <ShowInBrowser>AlwaysHidden</ShowInBrowser>
    in the aztec dlc is responsible for making it hidden. If you comment it out, it will show in additional content as any user mod and you can then just uncheck it when you want to create a game without it, then check it back when you want to use it.
