With a little bit of irony, I present to you the June Civ4 GOTM.

This is for Beyond the Sword expansion version 3.17.
The map is Tiny and the map is Highlands Special.
Difficulty Level = Prince
Speed = Normal

Only Militaristic Victory Conditions (Domination and Conquest) are Enabled.

Your leader is:



Your starting location:

A Friendly Village Nearby

Game Conditions:



Highest Normalized Score with any allowed victory condition will be declared BTS GOTM Champion for June

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]Jun09BTS.CivBeyondSwordSave

Submissions will be accepted until June 31st!

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 and Enjoy!!

Hey everyone, long time no see. Been away from Civ IV for a while, but might give this a shot. Dutch being one of my favorite Civs, although it is indeed pretty ironic to be playing them on a Highlands map with military victories only.

Starting location looks workable, if far from optimal.

Tiny comment on first post: saves should still be named with Feb09 or should this be Jun09?

Welcome back Maynerd

And thanks for the correction.

I just copy and paste the information so I don't always catch everything that needs to be changed.

..hmmm...gave it a shot, but failed....started out alright, killed one of the two opponents, but apparently the wrong one. Went to war against the other but failed miserably, he killed off my stacks like it was nothing. Even though I had a comforting tech lead, I couldn't produce anywhere near the amount of units he was pumping out.

Anyway, I gave up around 1450AD, my last stack (including my Great General healer) was annihilated, I was half his size in the powergraph and had half the amount of cities he had. Did not see this ending in Domination or Conquest for me. (which isn't too surprising, since I've never been good at those two). Was fun while it lasted though...don't think I've ever played a Tiny Highlands game before and mostly don't play Normal either.

By the way, did you custom create this map LC? It's downright nasty.

I tried to get that bloody .sav four times but it's not working. Could you email it to sircows hotmail, so I can defend my birth nation's honor?

Much obliged.

Did you end up getting the .sav, Zig?

I think you have to rename it. When I downloaded it, it came across as "Willem" and nothing afterwards. No .zip or .save or .anything. Weird, huh?

I'm most of the way through this game. In the 1600s or 1700s maybe.

*edit* Trying to attach a renamed savegame to see if this one works better.

Hmm. Its still doing it. After downloading that... it's still called just "Willem" with nothing afterwards. Perhaps the spaces are throwing it off? Too many characters? I don't remember seeing this problem before.

I can't DL the game either. I blame the "new" server - obviously a Charles Babbage castoff!

Trying to add it via .ZIP.

Any better?

*EDIT* I still get it as "Willem" with no .whatever attachment in the name.
