WOTM 45: Egypt
Ramesses..... in random land
Civilization: Egypt (Leader: Ramesses; Traits: Industrial and Spiritual)
Rivals: 6 Random AIs
Sea Level: Random
Starting Era: Ancient
Options: No Tribal Villages
Victory Conditions: all enabled.
Ramesses is good at building wonders and smashing AI with powerful War Chariots. He gets a fairly lame UB, from memory. Seriously, you should look them up.
The map is completely random, it is literally the very first roll.
This is the start of the game (click for a bigger image):
Contender Class ONLY
To Enter the Competition:
This competition will open on 1 August 2012. From that date, you'll be able to get the starting saves -->Here<--.
Submit the save after your victory (or defeat) here, by 14 September 2012.
This game MUST be played in Warlords (NOT Beyond the Sword or Vanilla Civ), patched to version 2.13, as modified by BtS version 3.13, and with the correct HOF mod version installed.
You can download version HOF-2.13.004 of the HOF mod here. Note that this is the new version of the HOF mod, first used for WOTM 25. For game security reasons this HOF mod version requires you to be logged in with an account that has admin privileges when you are playing for your game to be a valid entry to the GOTM competition. You'll see a warning dialog if you attempt to start a session without appropriate privileges.
If you have not installed BtS, you will need to update the relevant DLL files in order to match the Locked Assets checks. These are available here
Mac players will also require the 2.13 patch, with HoF Mod version HOF-Mac-2.13.001.
Remember - for your entry to be accepted, it MUST be your first attempt to play this game, and you MUST NOT replay any turns. If you make a mistake while playing, you have to live with it, learn from it, and carry on the game without replaying.
We will open 'spoiler' threads during the month for players to discuss what happens in their games. Do not discuss any details of the game outside those threads while it is in progress.
Please post in this thread or send me a Private Message for any technical queries, eg. if you have trouble opening the game. Do NOT post in this thread once you have successfully opened the starting save.
