    HUSch seems to still be having problems. I paused it to keep the turn from rolling, and will now shut it down to save computer resources.

    Glad you're back, we've missed you!

    I'm going out after work tonight so the game won't be restarted until late my time tonight, tomorrow morning in Europe.

    Friday night was a very late night and then was out with the family on Saturday.
    The pitboss has been started now.

    Game seems to be down.

    At least Hummel and me could not connect...

    Hi Dave,

    yesterday I tried to connect to the game at 4 absolutely different times. Each time I tried to connect twice and every single time the connection timed out.

    According to Hummel and HUSch they suffered the same problem.

    This morning and noon I retried twice each time and got the timed out mesage again.

    According to civstats you were the only one to be able to connect.
    I guess that's due to you entering the game from an internal network and not from outside.

    Now I suffer an (important) lost turn and a double turn of yours in wartimes (not so unimportant as you are massively drafting and probably stomping my army now as it's positions were chosen by your possibilities within 1 turn and not 2...) without my own fault (to my knowledge).


    So, I request a reload at the beginning of this turn.


    (Further, HUSch asked to pause the game until Sunday. I would be fine with it, but I would be available all the weekend.)

    Don't know what might have been happening. A reload and pause until Sunday is fine with me. I'll save now and then we can restore whichever is the right save.

    I had planned to start this back up yesterday but had a full day with my family. It should be started tonight.

    Which turn? I could just use the first one from civstats that had nobody else but me login, but wanted to ask if that's the right approach.

    Game/Save looks fine to me.

    Thanks for reloading, Dave. :)


    Btw, HUSch, anything we might need to know? You didn't end your last about a dozen turns...

    Seeing ~7 hours on the clock I logged in and played without looking to see if others had played.
    Turns out nobody has played... is there another connection problem? I preserved the state at the beginning of my moves (the autosave covers that) and at the end, so it can be restored if needed.
