    Sure, lad, as I said above, me with my friends, we'll definitely try out this new version, so you can just join us for some hardcore hotseat gaming marathon on some weekend.
    I'm living on the same continent, so just hop on a plane or start to hitchhike, it's only like four countries east-north from your place and give me a call once you're here at our capital (check PM for phone number).

    And no, I'm not going to play it online, hotseat's much more fun, when you can see all the pain of defeat in your competitor's eyes and laugh straight in his face :mischief: Beating a Frenchman would be even more fun, haven't heard French swearing for a while :p

    Oh, and take some French baguettes with you, it's a cheap food and quite fancy melee weapon :lol:

    Lol.

    Ok. I will try to find an online game. And not in marathon, too slow at my taste, but quick speed surely.

    What about PBEMs? It is a little slower than marathon but we still can chose quick speed :)

    P.S. Interesting: atomic gamer server is slower than the one in Germany...

    So V is currently just in Beta form? Would singleplayer (and even multiplayer) be more recommended in IV? (unless your absolutely bored with IV I suppose)

    One thing about V I like is that u have a Punic Wars scenario? Seems like there will be more scenarios in V than IV, which is always interesting ... I really enjoyed IV's Diadochi wars scenario.

    Hi Tasunke... glad you made it over here :cool: PAE V is official now, no beta anymore. So SP or MP, PAE V is ok with both of them. One of the very new scenarios is the Limes Germanicus (iirc) and it even is occ kompatibel. The scenarios are so much fun!!! Why don't you make one? You have so much experience in modding, no? You could make one with a mystical background... Minotaurus, Zyklops, the Argonauts... I will get stoned in the german forum for bringing this up :eek:

    Hey, seems like a great mod. I'd like to play multiplayer as well but I live in the middle east. How do people play multiplayer with this mod?

    I think for playing we just need to install the mod and connect us on direct IP with or without hamachi program. All of this is easy to done.

    If you want to play with me send me a PM I'll send you my Skype. :)

    So ya this is a great update...hunting was MUCH easier....
    With bombard on my hunters, taking out the first elephant was easy enough, but after that the group became unstoppable. They rampaged the countryside gathering promotion after promotion. A 6/1 defending=beastmode.:trouble::popcorn:
    Spoiler :

    Here is that same group..a little bit later..

    Apparently Ptolemy IV Philopator used them in the Battle of Gaza..
    Spoiler :



    After all though it is a game..I also don't think that said elephants would get promotions..especially +80% to escape a lost battle:lol:, :rolleyes: regardless of who 'Trained' them.

    Defeated War Elephant damaging his own people is a very cool idea! Was it present in Beta? Also do you happen to know why Sails of Persian ships do not have their "greenish" color?

    Unpromoted hunters have strange undocumented 50%+50% combat advantage against animals, so :strength: 2 Hunter kills :strength: 4 Lion half of the times. Is this intentional?

    Also what happened to combat logs? They appear abbreviated with no detailed hit points story...

    Finally are there any naked Amazons in civ 4 units collections? Those in game are not very sexy :lol: and do not even make female sounds :)

    Narrator rocks! I almost flinched when I discovered plow! How did you recruit him?

    :cringe:
    Those animals are no animals, they are melee. that's why it looks strange. yes, I could remove the animal bonus for the hunters to avoid misunderstanding.

    Combat logs: ok, will check that.

    naked amazons? not only amazones fought naked :D

    Narrator: Yes, I asked kindly and he suprised me with a yes. :thumbsup:

    Please avoid playing maps with starting Barbarian cities. They have a bad turn time! till 2-5 mins.
    reason: all horses seek a city without stables all the time. I will try to solve that with a patch version. I saw some minor things, which I will also change. And: French and Italian translation will also be new imported then! So keep on translating!

    New Hellenic scenario: I have an invisible ship, blocking trade but can't be seen by my own ships. I think I hit every tile looking for it.

    OK, thanks :)

    Speaking of which, when burnt forest has been removed, when can normal forest grow back? Only when a plot has no improvements? Or road, or never?
