    Spoiler :
    Please note: If you wish to make a video of your game, please do not post any links to it until after the game submission date has passed. This is because of the potential spoilers that are created by posting before the end date. Thank you for your cooperation.
    Announcement thread
    Spoiler :
    (this one): This thread is used to announce the game and clarify the settings and rules (don’t be afraid to ask questions). It’s also used to discuss the game before you start, and post problems with opening the save. Once you have opened the save, DO NOT POST in the Announcement thread, even non game-related information. Instead use the next thread.
    Opening Actions thread: This thread is used to discuss the game's opening decisions and strategies through the first 100 or so turns. Here you can post questions related to the game and share your achievements/anger/frustration/victories while you play. We encourage players to use the spoiler tags for screenshot. During the time the game is active, please do not post any information concerning the game outside of the spoiler threads including screen shots, videos, or recorded/live-cast Let's Plays on other websites.
    After Actions thread
    : In this thread you can post the results of your game. Please state your victory/loss date and final score (preferably in the post title) and describe your path to glory in this post! Players are encouraged to provide feedback on the game. Some players like to replay the game, and although we will not record the results from a replay, you can still post your new experiences. The game will not be closed as such, but after one month, the results will be compiled, and will not necessarily be updated with reports coming in after the finish date.
    Results and Congratulations thread: We will create a separate thread with the results at the end of the one month submission period (sorted by date and score). We will issue medals to the top 3 winners (based on earliest date finished). There are no long-term records kept for these results, they are just given out to top finishers to reward their efforts.

    File Upload System
    In development.

    This game runs for a month and ends 7 January 2021.[/B]

    What was wrong with the other GotM100 Menelik game? Can we submit for both of them? There is no explanation in neither of the threads of what is happening here :confused:

    the first save was a world builder map. for reasons I dont understand the area to the west of the spawn would not flood. that makes it difficult to get the needed faith to make the OCC viable. you may play both and submit both

    Far as I know, few people had trouble winning the game as it was. So if you are making a game to enable ONE SPECIFIC STRATEGY to be more viable, it would be educational for you to outline the specifics of that strategy. Not to mention fairness.

    What is it? Flood the rivers repeatedly using soothsayers in order to amplify their yields? Please elucidate how that is converted to faith. Thanks.

    @kcd_swede I think we were just being circumspect in the other Announcement thread to not spoil the game or make everyone's starting identical. Something I learned from, IIRC Tabarnak, in the past was that moving your Settler in OCC to find an optimal spot is worth the turns.

    The tactic is build the Great Bath so that flood damage is abated but the Faith bonus accrues. With Soothsayers you get floods at your discretion, which creates tiles that produce more Faith, which buys more Soothsayers, lather, rinse, repeat. You can easily end up with tiles that produce 3 Food and 40 Faith. Or more.

    New here. Are there different difficulty levels? I only see one for Prince, but was told there were higher levels too.

    6otM games rotate between lower difficultly being released on the 1st of month (prince-emperor) and higher difficulty (emperor-deity) on the 15th of month. This month is unique due to reaching 6otM100 in that multiple games were released on the 1st. If you go to the Game 100 announcement (this is 100A replacement announcement) you will see two games, 100B is at Deity level. Look for 6otM101 to be released on 15 Dec that is also at a higher difficulty level (or could go back to look at 6otM99 or other previous odd number ones).

    Think I'll try this one. Trying to decide if I should move onto the flood plains to settle in order to reduce population loss from volcano. After Great Bath there wouldn't be any population loss from flooding, but permanently lose the science/culture boost from Council of Ministers. Hmm. Ohh, Primordial map type.

    Thanks for setting up a replacement game for the original broken one!

    Regarding this game, plenty of floodplains, hills, and some camp resources to possibly squeeze in ToA. Mountains for some additional adjacent bonus for HS/Campus. Now just need some forest/jungle in the 3rd ring after I move the settler.

    Actually, i won the SV on the first map but it was a true grind and my spaceship left at the same turn the first comet struck the map. Quite fitting. I didn't submit the save thought as i'm more of lurker than anything else on those boards now :hide:
    I'll see if i can find that save. I was indeed very disappointed that the flood plain where i built the Great Bath never flooded, especially since i planned on having Vampire castles around for even more faith.

    Not a lot of resources on the new map for an OCC :groucho:
