    Excellent, hopefully I can finish the Pacal game in time and we get a sustained posting interest with this one. Maybe they aren't challenging enough to provoke discussion?

    Trust me, this map will be challenging,;p. I might actually leave putting the game up untill tommrow morning, due to the upload problem's the NC has been having, hopefully it'll be fixed by tommrow.

    It would be good if you started marking the saves as LHC XX* or some kind of numbering system like the 1st LHC series

    Noted, will do.

    Sorry for the delay, haven't been able to play civ for 2 weeks. Hopefully the next game, with Willem (unless there are objections), will be up Mon/Tues.

    Just a quick announcement, for the month's of April/May i will be unable to host any games of the LHC, the reasons for this are my end of year, college exams. April is a study month. In may my exams start on the 3rd and end on the 23rd. I do apologize for the inconvience and the pressure that will be put on hrun, however for me it's education first civ seccond. Perhaps the LHC can be hosted every two or three weeks in that time.... If i have the time, i will do my best to update the bullpen.

    Heya folks, im back for a few days, just taking a break from study untill my final exam on Monday, so i'll fire up the next LHC, i know Zara is next on the list but i was wondering if anyone wanted to see Augustus first for some wonderhoaring and fun isolation gameplay, also suggestions on map types other than fractal will be welcome. I'll try and put the next game up over the next three days.

    Edit: Oh and im thinking of expanding the series to our deity players, if anyone wishes to play deity in isolation of course! So i will provide a save if sombody tells me the deity bonus's, (two month's of study has left me rusty at civ im afraid!):)

    For Nobles' Club someone recently showed me a chart with all the bonuses:
    • Monarch: add Archery
    • Emperor: add Hunting
    • Immortal: add Agriculure
    • Deity: add The Wheel
    If you like I can look up the whole chart he posted.

    I'd prefer Zara as I'm currently playing as Rome in the Monarch Student game.

    Junuxx posted the full chart of difficulty-level differences back in 2010; Habitus pointed me to it recently. Bear in mind that there is no way to give the barbarians the right tech bonuses in a WB save; you have to add them manually in a save file (instructions are in the NC boilerplate as of a couple of weeks ago).

    Would you mind putting the non-standard map info and details of your map changes in spoilers? Not counting the ones to make a map isolated, but things like gHills with gold. In the latest game, I'd caught one of them but not the other until long after I had settled the city.

    If it's a lot of trouble don't worry yourself over it, though.

    Is there still any interest in this? I wouldn't mind hosting a couple games to find out. Looks like Augustus is next. IIRC there is a guide around here about making the world builder saves for all of the levels. I'll take a look at that.

    I've been having a break lately, but have in part been waiting for another one of these. I thought dalamb mentioned in the nobles club thread about hosting some of these?
    Whatever the case its got my vote :D

    ecuwins: I think you mean TMIT's guide, which is here. In the NC bullpen, stevoh said
    , so presumably you can. Don't just take my word for it though, this is a free series.
