    The first time I wanted to do this it was a fail, well now I would love a game of multiplayer for a couple of turns!
    Any mod I welcome except BUG. There is always the original Civ 4 BTS option.
    Anyway comment below if you are available tomorrow at any time. I can only do this tomorrow or also Monday but after 18:00.

    Here is a list of the people that will be joining until now:
    -Louis the XIV

    I'm not sure but I think the max number of player is 4.

    I'd be interested in playing, any particular reason for those mods and not something like BUG?

    Never played MP before!

    Well, I thought RFC would be a good option since the mod is really good and I always wondered how it would be to play it online.
    And RevDCM has a lot of other cool stuff. Though I never played BUG or BAT mod I wonder, is it something more like RevDCM?

    Ok, so RevDCM is practically BUG with some changes?

    It seems to include a whole load of other Mods including BUG.

    Ok. Well anyway do you want to play RFC or RevDCM or BUG multiplayer? Hopefully some other people will reply to this thread and play as well.
    By the way, in RFC the max nr of players online is 4.

    RevDCM sounds like it is a combination of the Revolutions mod and Dales Combat Mod (DCM). I play Legends of Revolution almost exclusively now, and it's from the same family of mods that are based on DCM and Revolutions (Wolfshanze mod, etc)

    Anyhoo, there are some pretty significant changes in Revolutions (the revolutions thing, obviously) and DCM makes changes to the combat engine too. I'm not sure what other mods (e.g. Spy mod, ranged combat, advanced aerial combat) might be part of RevDCM (those are all in LoR). If you haven't played it... you will need to figure that out.

    You might get more takers for a game based on BUG or the regular unmodded BtS.

    RevDCM also has super spies and ranged combat and everything else you said.
    Anyway I think RevDCM is a really good mod since it combines BUG and many other mods.
    So if you want to play online on BUG or BTS and others also then sure.(I think I might create a poll)

    I just got an idea! Why not create this multiplayer game on Earth Evolution 2 map? All civs start in correct positions. (BTS)

    I cant find the original thread but I zipped it below.
    By the way the Ethiopians, Mongols, Mayans, Incans, Vikings, Babylonians, and Native Americans don't start in correct positions, to change the coordinates you can open the python file and search for CIVILIZATION and there is a list of all the civs and their starting places.

    I couldn't get this map to work in any of my Mods but I did have a play with RevDCM and it looks cool so I would be up for a game in that.

    I don't know why it didn't work, for me it works really well. But anyway I found a thread that has it for download, maybe I did some modifications to it and don't remember.
    Earth Evolution 2.
    What mod would be better, BUG or RevDCM?

    The key point was in post 2:-

    I've got BUG/BULL working with it now but not RevDCM.

    Ok, well what happens when you choose the Earth Evolution 2 map in RevDCM? Does the game crash?

    Oh, when that happens to me I press Win (the windows button) and then wait a little and reopen the minimized window of Civilization.
    But I think I know why that happens. How many civs did you choose to be in a game? Cause if it's over 18 then that's the problem.
