    Hi fellow Readers!

    I originally posted a Replay #10 Thread in which everybody could have seen a Game from me in which I terribly get dominated by my own rustyness. As an explanation, I have made a break from Civilization IV for almost 6 years. I wish I could write in German, because my English is rusty aswell, but I' ll do my best and simply post Replay #10.2 .

    I seriously suspect God, Jesus from Nazareth, The Holy Ghost, Maria, Christophorus and Philippus to be willing that I spoil how an Espionage Victory works, so here is the 13th thread that shall guide you towards playing your own Espionage victories! :)

    I need to get back into Civilization IV, that' s why I post while playing this time, Typing will help me have a better focus in my own game.

    End of Introduction Part I .

    Following: Introduction Part II :

    I need to give further introduction. This is the Hall of Fame Slot I play for:





    I need your help with the Settings, because this is the First time, that I play a Quattromasters game. What I still know from former Players is, that I need to play Huge maps, because those give the most points, but how was @kovacsflo able to achieve 29 points in Settler Games when I thought, 22 Points are the Most that is possible?

    @Emeritus , @Denniz , @Ozbenno , @lymond , @Noble Zarkon , @kovacsflo Please help with the Sainted Setup.

    I searched the Hall of Fame, @kovacsflo' s game is even played with an Elite Quattromasters Leader, and his game is not seeable on the Main Page.

    @Emeritus , @Denniz , @Ozbenno, @lymond , @Noble Zarkon : Please thoroughly consider creating a Hall of Fame Mainpage Quattromasters Tabulator like already existing for the further advanced Elite Quattromasters.

    This is what the Hall of Fame Ad-Hoq-Querry gives for Conquest:



    I Priori:

    This is what the Hall of Fame shows for the Quattromasters "Inferno" , The Category in which I want to make the most points to stay #1 ranking Quattromaster for a long time:













    I' m searching for the most difficult Game:

    The First listed Category in the Hall of Fame is Conquest, best ranking Marathon Professional is @babaBrian , who' s #33 in Quattromasters. He' s also the #1 ranking Settler Conquest Professional in Marathon and Epic.
    Conquest Normal Speed is lead by @Quibblesome . She' s still further away from Quattromasters, so Either Conquest Marathon or Epic.
    Whom Civilization IV Quattromasters Normal Speed does have to offer further down is though: @Walter_Wolf , #23 in Quattromasters, @cabert , #21 in Quattromasters and @The-Hawk , #16 in Quattromasters.
    So, I could excell One Computer-Professional on Marathon, One on Epic but I could excell Three Computer-Professionals on Normal Speed :joke: .

    More important: The Computer-Professionals on Normal Speed more rank on top, so I decide "If Conquest, then Normal Speed" and notice #16 . :lol:

    Writing this post took a lot of Pictures and is very exhausting, so, Break In Further Introduction!

    With Kind Regards, Philip Christopher Plöger.

    I need to dig into the scoring a bit, not something I have touched. On what basis do you understand 22 points is the maximum possible?

    I thought 10 points for a Huge map game without Raging Barbs and 11 Points for a Huge game with Raging Barbs.

    I need explanation how to score the most points please.

    Raging barbs add 10 points, not 1.
    QScore = BaseQScore * (DifficultyAdjustor + BarbAdjustor) * MapSizeAdjustor
    So, on Settler maximum is 100*(0.1+0.1)*1=20 for a number one game on Huge with raging barbarians.

    Gott just helped Me to Re-G-Find @vincentz Great Terrain Modpack, while Downloading I' m posting until @Emeritus , @Denniz , @Ozbenno , @lymond has explained to Me how to score higher in Quattromasters Inferno than @kovacsflo, so until I got help with the Settings.

    Moderator Action: Please don't harass staff to answer you when we are already engaged in your thread --NZ

    A Good Day to All Readers again!

    Culture looks quite, I could play against @kovacsflo , #12 ranking non-Quattromaster . Marathon.
    Culture Epic speed has @WastinTime , #1 ranking Quattromaster. I still need explanation on how to maximise my Quattromasters score. Epic speed also has @Firmlife , #19 ranking non-Quattromaster. And Two Games from @kovacsflo :bounce: . AND @ShannonCT , who ...

    :help: I looked at Deity, old habits again. I' m correcting Settler Conquest Epic:
    @Drool #58 .
    @Hindi #48 .
    @XEON #88 .

    Settler Conquest Normal Speed I' d play with / against :
    @Quibblesome , not ranking on First Page.
    @Dasphios #94 .
    @Stubby (not ranking, I always refer to the First Page) .

    Settler Conquest Quick Speed I' d play with / against :
    @EGJ (not ranking, reminder, not on First Page) .
    @erikthecelt #29 .
    Again @cabert .
    Again @The-Hawk .
    @WilliamOfOrange #52 .
    @FiveRings (not ranking) .
    @Moscow (not ranking) .
    @McArine (not ranking) .

    I take note, the best Computer-Professional I could replace in the Conquest Category is @erikthecelt .

    Also, I mean how to get the Highest score in this:



    The Civilization IV Programmers should recognize this Screenshot and explain which Choices are rewarded in the Civilization IV Quattromasters Category.

    Kind Regards, Philip Christopher Plöger . :grouphug:

    A good day to All Readers again!

    The Civilization IV Culture Category has @Misotu , ranking One Hundred Eleven Comma Three Points , Gott reminders Me that I made it difficult for myself in the Beginning, I stick with my choice and notice Culture.

    Writing of Epic.

    Culture Normal Speed, a Game from @neilmeister , ranking One Hundred Twenty Five Comma Three Points but lacking One Game for Quattromasters! :bounce:

    Gott reminders Me, that I want as many Options in Civilization IV as possible, so Dear Readers, I should have written the title:

    "Replay #10: My Attempt At A Civilization IV Quattromasters Twenty Points Conquest Victory! "

    I' ll make My Game Setup now!

    Respectfully,

    Seraiel. :please:

    Spoiler Englisch101 :
    Friendly advice from the angels :D:

    “To Remind” is the verb. Third person singular is “reminds”, such as he/she/it reminds me. All other cases use “remind”, such as I/you/we/they remind me.

    “Reminder” is a noun meaning something that reminds one of something. Such as placing a reminder on your calendar for Mom’s birthday.

    Spoiler Englisch101 :
    Seeing as we are doing this lol - Emeritus is a title of a respect for Denniz not a separate staff member! It means someone having retired but allowed to retain their title as an honour.

    A Good Day to All Readers!

    The Game Setup:




    Quite self-explanatory. I have almost no experience on Settler, I hope that the AIs will research Archery and that I' ll not even face Chariots. We have to keep in mind, that I need to finish in prior to 2920 BC, the AIs will probably have Warriors and maybe single Archers, therefor Cyrus.

    I' ll continue with generating Maps now.

    With Friendly Regards,

    Seraiel.

    Most of the AIs don't start with Hunting so unlikely they get to Archery before you kill them! Do you have "No City Razing" ticked? It can be really frustrating waiting for a Settler AI city to grow to size 2!!

    I would recommend to upload your images directly in the post and use the "Full Image" link instead of using small linked images to a third party host. It makes it much easier for readers to see what is going on, and it removes the risk of images being removed from the post at some point in the future. I've tried to re-read some of the previous replays, but it's difficult without any images :(

    Good luck with the game. Will be interesting to follow the progress.

    ^This. Those strategy articles you wrote back in the day on city placement, those were excellent resources. Now without the images they're practically useless.
