    First post to a forum ever.

    Willing to take any and all CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

    I enjoy playing Civ against my human friend. I enjoy chatting during cooperative turn play as I maliciously plan his/her pending demise.

    What I don't enjoy is waiting for their turn to be over after war is declared.

    It would be really nice if their was an option to switch over to a play-by-email format at this point. Any thoughts?

    You're saying you want to play Simultaneous Turns ("cooperative turn"?), then when you would otherwise hybrid into turn-based, switch the save format to a hotseat mode you can trade by e-mail.

    It can't be done. It's technically impossible.
    Next question.

    The mechanism would be like playing a MP game on sequential. Also, it would be too dependent on trust.

    I don't understand why this is "impossible".

    You automatically switch to turn-based when you declare war on another human player. Isn't PBE just another form of a turned base game?

    As for trust. It's a game. Why would you want to cheat, it kind of defeats the purpose of playing.
