    GAME IS FULL!!

    I've tested Pitboss On one of my computers and I got it running fine with a successful connection. I would love to run one of my own, as some of the games I've tried to join fizzled out apparently.

    Theme: I've never played multiplayer before, and I hope to find other players who haven't had too much MP experience or are looking to improve their game in a easier-going atmosphere, especially for this first game. I'm also testing out my server with other players and in a real game, so I'm keeping it fairly small. Standard world with 4 Humans, 3 AI (after some consideration, I might do five humans, so I can include four humans that ain't me). It's supposed to be an easier-going game to challenge each other and ourselves, like I said, so I'm using a randomized map w-o worrying too much about absolutely equal playing fields. It's in part for fun!

    Settings:

    IP: 76.81.106.144

    Timer: 20 hours
    Difficulty: Noble
    Map Type: Fractal
    Size: Standard
    Climate: Temperate
    Era: Ancient
    Speed: Standard (I usually play epic, but I think this is good to start and meet players)
    Game Options: Default
    Victories: All, why not.

    I'll be willing to experiment more in the future. I'm open to suggestions as long as they don't mess with the feel for what I'm trying to accomplish here. This is a vanilla game, although I have Warlords... I'm just keeping it simple, and I'm even newer to the expansion.

    Players:
    Me: One of the Indian leaders.
    (1) Maydrock: Tokugawa of Japan.
    (2) Elvis1985: Random -> Genghis Kahn, Mongolia
    (3) Kalven: Catherine of Russia.
    (4) Might Dwaarf: Inca

    Reserves/Backups: Possibly Forrester SOF and this other guy (not verified)

    About Me: I was never a super expert in Civilization, but I was pretty accomplished with Civ II. I got Civilization IV only recently, and am still learning the ropes.

    Sign Up: Send me a PM with your email, and what nation you'd like to play. (vanilla)

    Additional Rules:

    Sign up only if you plan to play to the end. The rule is if you haven't told me about an absence, I have the right to kick you out. I probably won't on the first offense, but I have the right to decide when it's become a problem. This is supposed to be easy going--you don't have to be non-agressive, just don't be a jerk... if your the winner or the loser. That's all.

    *edited: Number of human players, added timer setting, included difficulty setting*

    The IP is 76.81.106.144. If one of you didn't get a password, please let me know.

    The Incan guy is AI until five or six days, where he's certainly welcome to play the Incan leader (I thought i was easier than playing with the save file).

    If anyone has problems, let me know.

    I appears I was last to finish play for the turn. I figured when I hit enter the turn would finish and the timer would start over, but it didn't.

    Yes. I can.

    I had an unexpected distraction last night, so I'm sorry I wasn't more helpful. I thought I had contacted everybody. I'm glad it's fixed now, though.

    hmm i don't know what was going on, but when i posted the previous message it still said 'waiting for other players' after pressing 'end turn'.
    the civstats log shows as if i finished my turn twice?
    in any case, hope it goes smoothly from here on...

    I thought there was a problem too, but I logged in and did a turn, and it seems to have advanced time...

    that's what i don't get.
    you just finished your turn, which means all turns for this round are done.
    now why did it start counting 20 hours again?
    i still get 'waiting for players' when i log in, shouldn't i be able to play the next turn?

    There's something funky going on. See post # 7. I thought I was the last to play that turn as everyone else had stars by their name. But, when I hit enter, it gave me the "waiting on other players..." message.
