    This is a poll on which size of world we will use. This poll will close when the game is created. Discussion is here: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=30125


    The 4 catagories are:

    Large map
    Huge map
    Large map w/16 civs
    Abstain

    (This is my first poll, if I didn't do it right please don't shoot me! :goodjob: )

    It looks very good, croxis. One thing you missed was registering it in the poll registry. You'll greatly increase poll participation by registering it.

    I did this for you here.

    huge map gives more space to expand o build a bigger empire which means more jobs for people in mayorship roles and governer roles

    One other thing. The game setup options already specify 16 civs so the 2 large options are the same.

    The "large map w/16 civs" choice was removed as it was a duplicate of "large map".

    To recap previous arguments (as best I recall)

    Pro-huge:
    More cities
    Longer game
    More potential options for participation

    Anti-huge:
    DP needs a powerful machine, possibly limiting candidates
    Turns could take a long time to process, particularly late in the game, meaning long TCs

    Did I miss anything? Btw, I'm voting for huge.

    It is possible that some think this is a con. One advantage of the smaller game I find is the leadership races we're having now are much more fun than the uncontested ones.

    Keep it smaller! Not all of us have Pentium 4 machines. Even for just viewing the last game on the large map, it took me a good few minutes to load the game.

    I'm in the same boat as you, Octavian, and all I play is huge maps.
