    How to Play Our Turn
    Spoiler :
    Note: This is the personal method of the current President, but no one is forcing you to follow every detail.


    0. In My Documents\My Games\Civ4\CivilizationIV.ini, edit this line:
    Code:
    ; Allow Camera Flying
    AllowFlying = 1
    
    This allows you to use Ctrl+Alt+F to take really cool screenshots.

    1. Log into Gmail
    Username: team.epsilon
    Password: The5thLetter

    2. Click the subject line of the new save to view it.

    3. Apply the Saves label.


    4. Download the save.

    5. Open the save with Civ4.

    6. Enter the password again.
    Password: The5thLetter

    7. Create a notepad file called Turn 23 (matching the turn you recieved).

    8. Read through the Instruction Thread for any orders that apply this turn.

    9. Perform the appropriate orders, using your judgement for anything that isn't specified. Write down each move you make in notepad.

    10. Hit the PrintScreen key to take screenshots of anything interesting. I usually take a shot of the city screen and combat results.

    11. Take a screenshot of the map.
    a. Zoom out until you can see the entire map.
    b. Hit Ctrl+Alt+F to remove the clouds.
    c. Hit Ctrl+I to remove the bottom bar.
    d. Hit PrintScreen.
    e. Hit Ctrl+Alt+F to return to normal view.

    12. Hit end turn, and exit to desktop.

    13. In Gmail, archive the old save email.

    14. Compose a new message in Gmail.
    To: Next Team
    Subject: Turn 24 (we are the last team, so the first team gets turn+1)
    Attach a file: My Documents\My Games\Civ4\Saves\pbem\CFC Civ4 MTDG\CFC_Civ4_MTDG_BC-3000_to_King_Kong.Civ4SavedGame
    Message: 3000 BC (same date as the attached save)

    15. Upload your screenshots to ImageShack. The screenshots are stored in My Documents\My Games\Civ4\ScreenShots\

    16. Copy each Thumbnail for forums (1) link to notepad.

    17. Post your notepad file in the State of The Empire thread.
