    Just one question (don't even know if it's related): What are the 'Epics' that everyone's talking about? Thanks.

    The "Epics" are games (*similar* to our "Game of the Month") that are on the Realms Beyond Civilization site. The Realms Beyond players come here for Succession Games, so it is not surprising that their discussions sometimes involve references to the Epics. BTW, I believe anyone can play the Epics, as long as they follow the strict "no spoilers" rule over at RBC. Check with Sirian. He'll know. ;)

    You can delete previous attachments via the user CP, there should be a tab manage attachments.
    To post a link, you click the post hyperlink button when you're replying to a topic (with the small earth icon), then you'll get asked for a text (the part in blue with a line underneath) and afterwards you have to enter the link to the webpage (incl http://).

    The easiest way is going to the thread you want to link to, selecting and copying everything in the address bar and paste it when asked for the link.

    PS: hope this helps

    If I had a idea for a SG-theme, but do not want to be the leader in my first SG ever (not to mention that I have modded my conquests.biq and woulnd`t be suitet well to generate the start save anyway) - what would be the odds to find somebody who would "host" my game?

    Zorn: To tell the truth, pretty low unless the idea is really outstanding...
    Also, it's a question of the level. You will find more participants for a Deity variant than for a Monarch game.
    The SG community is mostly a shrinking pool of veteran players today.

    I was thinking about something like "viking rage"

    Archipel, 80% ocean
    level emperor or higher, rest standard settings

    Special rules:


    Every coastal city must be captured amphibiously (if possible, this rule starts after invention if we don`t use a mod).
    Every city must be destroyed. We want to burn the world, not conquer it. The only examples are cities with lighthouse or magellan.
    If we would play this with the RAR biq, we could also try to ship the workers from the destroyed cities back home and go for a 25k victory with lots of sacrificing instead.

    Do not be too alarmed Doc, there are a few of us 'lesser' folk who are beginning to flock to SG's. In truth, if it wasn't for Brother Bede's invitation to his training game I possibly would have never strayed to this side of the board. Thanks Bede!

    In hopes of learning from the vets!

    Just found out about these training games... I'd love to participate in one, but I can't seem to find one. Here is my status:

    Civ3 Mac
    I usually play monarch/regent (win almost every time on monarch)

    I'm also currently in a DemoGame, and I'm already learning a lot there.

    I've been told they are not compatible, but I haven't tried myself. Send me a save if you like, and I'll let you know what happens.

    @Peter: They are compatible, meaning you could take your mac save and I could play in with my windows os. Granted you can only play off of saves from a windows os if they are vanilla civ.

    If you have any more questions about Mac civ I suggest you PM AlanH. He has always been helpful to other Mac players in the past. You'll also notice his sig even mentions Mac.

    Civ3 doesn't, however, appear to be "Cmd+Tab" friendly. Is there an easy way to switch between Civ and another program on the Mac? Should I post this in the Mac forum?
