    In June this year at the 'Foundations of Digital Games' conference in California, Rhye, creator of the Civ4 mod Rhye's and Fall of Civilization, will present a paper entitled "Procedurally Generated History: building a game ecosystem through autoplay", which he has co-authored with Civ4 Lead Designer Soren Johnson. The abstract of the paper is as follows:
    The conference runs from 22 June to 25 June in Pacific Grove, CA, and you can register for the event here. The 'Foundations of Digital Games' website notes that the conference "seeks to promote the exchange of information concerning the scientific foundations of digital games, technology used to develop digital games, and the study of digital games and their design, broadly construed."

    It's interesting that Rhye was on the forums today but hasn't posted anything.

    It is not yet publicly available - I believe it may become available after it is presented.

    I hope the paper makes a splash. I thought that RFC was one of the most unique mods I've come across any game, and that other developers could learn a lot from it.

    Such as Firaxis.
