    i was just wondering what victory conditions people play with, i leave conquest and domination on. this drags the game on longer which i like and stops someone winning just coz the built the UN and things like that.

    I leave all of them on. Since the AI is programmed to only aim for Space Race victory deactivating this cripples them badly. I don't really consider a win valid unless the game had a full set of victory conditions enabled, since disabling them helps the human player. Also, while I leave time victory enabled, I don't consider winning by it valid. Hitting 2050 without winning by a different method I consider a loss on time.

    I second this, and I wish that victory point allocations more strongly emphasized what year you finished the game as time, or "default" victories will always produce the highest score.

    Oops, forgot to add to the topic,
    I leave them all on. I kinda prefer cultural victories. Dom/Diplo/Conquest have almost identical approaches and Space race is not far from it. Cultural requires a wholly different strat from, pretty much, the start.

    Me too pretty much. I keep it on as a sort of curtain call to let me know the game is over.

    I know the AI is programmed to only aim for Space Race... but I just tried my 1st emporer game and I would swear the AI was trying for a Conquest victory... and doing a pretty good job of it too.:cry:

    Oh, and I leave all the conditions on.

    Space Race 60%! What on earth! That seems to me to be the coolest VC there is.

    i leave all on for the previously mentioned reasons. i choose my desired victory type when i start and anything else is a loss on the challenge.

    I leave them all on, although I do consider winning a time victory to be a failure.

    I prefer cultural and I hate space race for the simple fact that AI mostly(I already saw AI aiming for diplomacy as well) only aim for that -.- They really had to make AI aiming for other victories..

    Domination Conquest Cultural and Space Race. I don't like winning by voting or just running out of time. Space Race is good when it gets to the last piece and Cultural can often be close as well.

    I usually enable everything except Time and Domination as these victory conditions don't seem to me to be trully victorious results.

    Default rules here. Everything is ticked. Never bother trying domination or conquest though. Only diplo, space or culture. I`m a peaceful builder.
