Due to the holiday season we are a little late in getting this out. Thus we have downsized the scale of the map to create a small continent that you must conquer. You will have to contend with 3 opponents each taking up a quadrant of the map. This is basically a blitzkrieg type setting to see who can claim ownership of the island in the quickest amount of time. Can you rise to the occasion?

For Version 3.17

Era - Ancient

Game Speed - Epic

Map Size/Type - Small Pangaea

Difficulty Level - Noble

Climate - Temperate

Sea Level - Medium

Victory Types Accepted - Domination and Conquest

In this game there are 3 AI to contend with.

Special Conditions:

Agressive AI
New Random Seed on Reload (if you follow the rules there shouldn't be any reload!
Lock Modified Assets
No Vassal States

You are:



Game Conditions:



Starting Location:




Victory Conditions

Only the militaristic victory types of Domination and Conquest have been enabled and will be accepted.

Highest Normalized Score in any of the accepted Victory Conditions will be declared BTS GOTM Champion for January.

When you complete the game, take a screenshot of the Victory screen where it lists your leadership counterpart in history. You may post the screenshot in the GOTM thread and then Email your final save (hopefully one turn just before victory) to gotm@1bcciv.com. Saves should be named as follows: [username]May08BTS.CivBeyondSwordSave

GOTMs saves should be sent to gotm@1bcciv.com

Submissions will be accepted until the end of January.

Everyone please follow the instructions for submission: Post your score screenshot here in this thread and email to gotm@1bcciv.com. This makes it easier to determine how everyone stands and what the current standard is scorewise if we get held up in the verification of save files. Thanks.

Saves should be named as follows:[username]Dec08BTS.CivBeyondSwordSave


What are the rules?
The rules are fairly simple: Play fairly.

This means that you play within the spirit of the competition. As it is a friendly competition, we like to believe that there is no real incentive to cheat - but unfortunately, people do. Any persons found to be cheating will have their games removed, and there is a strong possibility that they will be banned from participating in the future.

Cheating includes (and is not limited to):

1. Playing the game multiple times and submitting the best effort (or even playing to get knowledge of the map, the replaying then starting the game again).
2. Using any sort of programs to edit the game or save files.
3. Altering the XML or using other mods that give you an unfair advantage.
4. Reloading an earlier save-file and replaying turns in a different way. The only time you may reload a save file is to start a new play session, and you must use the save file from the end of your previous session.

Also, if in doubt, ask. If you think you have found a new loop-hole or exploit, then we strongly suggest that you ask as to its legallity before you use it. The aim of the competition is not to see who can exploit the rules, and as such, we reserve the right to disqualify submissions based on exploits that are discovered later.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!

Don't know, Worset. This has happened in the past for saves I have tried to upload. Has anyone else had this problem?

What browser are you using, because Firefox has a history of being problematic for downloading saves off this website...

Actually, IE also completely fails to open it, at least on my machine. Paradoxically, when I attempt to download the file while running OS X Firefox has absolutely no problems whatsoever

So the save is accessible. I wonder why these folks are having problems them.

NC, if you still are able to, can you post a copy of the 4000 bc sav?

I seem to recall we did that last time and it worked for people who were having problems.

Sure.  If anyone is having troubles... try this attachment.  I don't know why it would work if I post it, but stranger things have worked.
