    A new PBEM game with the following settings:

    • BtS v3.17 with permanent golden age mod (will post details later)
    • inland sea
    • always war
    • unrestricted leaders
    • everyone starts with settler, warrior, archer, worker, scout
    • huts on
    • events off
    • barbs off
    • speed: Epic
    • Map: 1 size larger than required (so we have some room)
    • Map: Edited by me to ensure everyone has access to strategic resources

    Anyone interested?

    Edit: This game will need to be played under a mod to get the permanent GA going.

    Roster:
    Ruff as Churchill of Korea [GMT-5]
    Dreylin as Isabella the Viking [GMT-6?]
    mc-red as liz. of india [GMT 0]
    mlindert as Kublai Khan of ? [GMT +1]
    -- open --

    ok - we have 3, 5 would be better because ...

    3 would mean 2 joining teams and crushing 1
    4 would mean 2 v 2
    5 leaves room for backstabbing and the like
    6 is too many for a PBEM

    So, we need 2 more - any other takers in this blood bath?

    and yes - email is the way to go.

    Hey Ruff, are you still looking for a fifth for this game?

    If so, Isabella the Viking for me.

    Righto! We are almost ready to go. I am missing the following:

    • smoked salmon email address
    • some final input on people's leaders and civs (see first post)
    • people's GMTs for turn order

    I will start a dummy game just to test that we have all d/l the mod and everything works this afternoon.

    Looking forward to this. Really like the golden age angle.
    I am guessing I have to wait till I am emailed the dummy game in correct sequence to test if it works.
    EDIT: i registered at the PBEM tracker site
    I cannot open the emailed file.

    Why? What message did you get? Have you installed the GoldenAge mod under the 'my progs' BtS mod directory?

    I won't be at my civ computer for an hour will PM you the message I get.
    I basically unzipped the mod in the directory where BAT and my other mods reside.
    Probably some minor thing going on.

    edit:
    I think it may have something todo with the OOS patch thing I messed with.
    I may just have to reinstall everything

    If you have the OOS patch, then you will need to revert to the v3.17 DLL when playing this PBEM. Did you keep a copy of the dll when you applied the unofficial patch?

    I'm just going to reinstall and patch to BTS 3.17.
    I'll put the .dll for OOS in a new mod folder so it doesn't pollute anything.

    mc-red is having trouble opening the turn. We are still investigating. It sounds like Dreylin is ok (and the answer is NO). Any feedback from the other 2?

    latest news - map is ready.
    Everyone starts with: settler, worker, warrior, longbow and 2 x explorer
    No stone, marble or uranium
    Everyone has ivory in their BFC
    Balanced resources are ON so you should have strategic resources close by
    Based on Inland Sea - map looks interesting from a strategic point of view
