Welll... it IS easier to win on the space race when you've eliminated the competition, is it not?

Still loathe epic speed
Its a good compromise though for those who prefer marathon speed (like me!)

Marathon? You might as well put everything on auto and lie down and die. I'm with Zig.

ps On this gotm (epic, so I was bored) I stupidly put a scout on auto-explore. Now I can't stop it. The scout decided to go back home and explore, well, my homeland, basically! No manner of clicking on it or keystrokes can stop the ***. It is still wandering around somewhere completely out of control and being utterly useless. Anyone know of a fix? Just like auto-workers, I have now learnt never to trust the AI!

Yes you don't need to trade with them if their researchers are now working for you!!! ...cut out the middle man.

Is it still a race if there's only one civ left in it??

And tones, its not really a fix, but you could always just kill it. Or is it an invincible headless chicken? The worst kind!

I rather think if you are the only civ left you will have won by the wrong means, and therefore lost.

Upon firing up the game again I managed to find my headless chicken somewhere in Siberia and regained control. 'Twas a bit strange for a while though.

A compromise would be a small map on epic speed or a standard map on normal speed. As Civ4 gets older I'm not sure too many people want to spend 12-16 hours on one game. 6-10, not so bad... Let's see how many finish this one though. I've been wrong before. (I remember it well. It was in the summer of 1988.)

The people have spoken, LC. Lets make the next 1 or 2 "normal" speed then.

It takes me a lot longer than 16 hours. However, sometimes you are rewarded for patience. Your rivals go to war with each other whilst you look on from a handy hill, and the denizens of a landlocked tribal village in the middle of freakin nowhere give you, completely for free, the technology of Astronomy!

Landlocked people like stars too.
