    I was wondering how everyone else configures settings for their games. Personally I do 12 civs, fractal, no ancient ruins and no bad events. I play on King, and sometimes on Emperor depending on how I feel.

    standard map size, standard speed, no events, no tech trading, ruins on, no other submods or changed map setting

    and i think this should be default setting and considered in balance civs/policies talks, anything you add changes everything massively and more stuff/options at hand are far more handicap to the player than the ai

    map and difficulty is slightly less important choice to compare stuff, i like deity with strong civs like Portugal or Denmark or alright ones like England and immortal with much weaker ones, sometimes I try deity with Shoshone or Germany but I'm still unable to do it, I enjoy any map that is mostly continents, like milae or communitas, as vp balance was made with continents in mind

    Huge maps (usually communitu79a or whatever is included), deity, marathon
    All things set to random that can be random regarding world creation (age, water, humidity, resources etc). The only option is that I sometimes like to starve the resources to the lowest possible.
    No tech trading or tech brokering, raging barbs, random victory condition.

    VP + Gedemon TSL giant map. 22 civ, 41 cs. Difficulty usually prince or king. Standard speed. Ancient era. All victory conditions on except time.

    Allow great general/admiral points from barb, allow human vassalage, allow social policy save, allow promotion save, chill barbarian, no tech broker, no tech trade, yes trade agreement, transparent diplomacy (sometimes I turn on random leader personality as well).

    Maps depend on who I am playing, but don't like maps with too much water, otherwise you have to concentrate on Navy to detriment of other things.
    Like Policy Saving on, Tranparent Diplomacy, Raging Barbs. Turn of Ruins (make game ridiclous with amazing starts), Tech Brokering/Trading.
    Only Mod I have except Infoaddict, is Citadels don't steal Land (bliss)
