    I wished they were more of these buildings like the prisons or something else.

    In the "traditional" stability system, Jails also give +1 Stability, as well as Security Bureaus and Intelligence Agencies (only if your stability is already below a limit). And it is possible to code more buildings give stability.

    Not trying to convert you to RFC, though, it's a very specific kind of experience. I do find that it has more randomness then the Earth map.

    I would consider myself 'most recent' rather than 'last'...and I think more time would be needed to prove otherwise since I haven't been here that long.

    This is a thread in HOF forum, yes? I don't think HOF forum activity is a clear indicator of forum life overall. For example I'm clearly no lurker and I think I've looked at the HOF forum maybe three times, and never commented there. Nothing against it, it just hasn't caught my interest.


    This thread seems to be doing okay, as do quite a few others in this section. If there weren't as much activity in this section as there is I might put some time in other sections, but for now this consumes my limit.


    I didn't realize respect was systematic...and it wasn't you who I thought was trollish in comments about Seraiel.

    :hmm:

    I thought Nick Carpathia was just playing.

    I thought Tachywaxon was too...

    I cannot feel bad that Tachywaxon got punished anyhow as she's canadian and deserves it, but there is really nothing that can be done against her speaking funnily :x .

    ;D

    Haha, it's no fun unless you can instigate fights with others. Okay okay, you're probably better at SP Civ than I, but nothing will stop me from calling you out for cooking your starts!

    People assumes I'm female. They can wander anywhere with imagination. People can't deal with people avowing neutral gender.

    NOW, let's get back to the subject please.


    About depressive facts that the civ4 forums is agonizing. :yumyum:

    Who the hell is Drew?

    Drew was a friend of mine in middle school. He stole one of my cookies during lunch. I told him if he didn't make adequate compensation of a comparative cookie that drewisfat would be my account name for everything, forever. He never got me another cookie.

    Been over a decade now. I never forget!

    You dedicated yourself to his memory online for all eternity AND he got the cookie? Drew is the clear winner there; that's what the ladies want.
    : P

    As for those Canadian comments, you all don't know what you're talking aboot, eh.

    As the bear said 'c'mon, it's an entire country that's north of Buffalo'. I think that's punishment enough.

    Meanwhile we have a thread where a lurker asked a fairly simple question and the immediate response amounted to 'shut up and search like a good little lurker'...:rolleyes:

    :goodjob: to Seraiel who came along and provided a good, friendly answer...hopefully that will be the impression that lasts.

    Serial lurker? Guilty.
    There is cake available?
    Hmmm..

    I have learned alot about CIV by lurking. I guess I lurk because, although I am interested in learning new tidbits about the game, I suppose I just can't stomach the off topic conversation.

    When the off topic conversation turns to cake it is much easier to stomach.
