    Welcome citizens of this beautiful democracy.
    Tomorrow we will see the creation of the game. I will play at 15.00 GMT (1000 EST, 0700 PST). I hope to see you in the chatroom (#turnchat)

    Please post all instructions and requests to the Designated Player (me) here.
    If you're posting as an official (or a deputy), start your post with your position. If you're posting the result of an initiative as a citizen, please add a link to the relevant poll(s). Instructions posted during the chat are not considered valid, and may be ignored.

    I will post here when I enter the chatroom so everyone knows the chat is starting.

    At the end I will upload the save and some screenshots (please request which screenshot you want so I can make them).

    -Dutchfire, Designated Player

    How many signifantly different screenshots can one make after 1 turn? I understand why you write it but as long as our culture rate didn't increase or until someone found us (before we have scouts) I don't think there's much excitement to be screenshot.

    I'll try and be there tomorrow at 15:00 GMT, should be easy for us Dutchies ;).

    demographics, zoomed in, with tile yields, without, resource bubbles on, of.

    By the way, don't pin me down on 1500, it might be a few minutes later.

    Stop play as soon upon creation. DO NOT PRESS ENTER!

    If you can, take screenshots and post them here. Thanks.

    Demographics won't be interesting because nothing has been done yet.

    I'd be happy with yields, grid, and resources on, don't really need any of the other combinations.

    It's traditional to take a screenshot of the game startup options. The time I didn't do that was the one that we ended up on the wrong size, or wrong difficulty. or something... :blush:

    Ohhh, a Breakfast Chat! :D Too bad I'll be at work.

    Stop the play before even moving or founding a city so I can assess the land.

    Just a tip, you might want to type 10:00am EST, not 1000 EST - same for 3:00pm EST instead of 1500 EST. Most of us Americans wouldn't understand 1500. :p

    How do you check what time the game is created in a time zone?

    Edit: Oh never mind

    hmmm... That's three or four in the morning my time... I think I'll make do with the screenshots... I will second the request for a screenshot of the setup screen, just to keep anyone from kicking up a preventable fuss.

    I'm not clear on what kind of fuss a screenshot would avoid. One could check the save to see what was chosen, no? A screenshot could be from another game.:confused:

    <DS_logging> any blue circles? if not could be a bad sign
    <Hyronymus> does Khan come with a scout or warrior

    Congratulations on the first step. A small step for civ addicts but a big step for this demogame :). Let's hope we will have a good time on this map.

    Why is our landmass small???

    (Nice starting position, though. I just hope this isn't a case of Daveshack Disease with the wrong mapsize. :p)

    If you check the settings from the save it says standard size.

    Just a minor nitpick, the naming convention should be:

    C4DG2_BC4000_...

    not

    C4DG2 BC-4000....

    :) (note the lack of spaces and dashes)
