    I propose a simple strategy; rush and fuck.

    You know us Americans, always up for violent expansion of our foreign interests, especially when robots are involved.

    So, change of plan.

    AS Brave New World would force me to use an unsuitably large map Dickbots 2 will just be running G&K and the DLC civs.

    Only real loss are the trade routes and new x com unit but it's worth it to avoid giving the AI space enough for the 3 cities it will start with.

    Both games are now live, good luck!

    Woo!

    I didn't notice the civ discussion beforehand, but went with China. Since I get Great Generals more frequently, I figured I could both cheese myself some new territory and hunker down in their fortresses if necessary.

    How does bnw increase the world size?

    Apparently the number of players/map size is dictated by an XML file buried somewhere in Civ's installation with a separate one for each expansion.

    All I can be sure of is that the first, G&K, game worked as intended but the second would only use the map size I want with BNR disabled.
    Bit of a moot point at the moment as the save won't even load for pirateninja, gonna revert and try a different config today.

    I've only taken my first turn, but I already enjoy the initial game setup tremendously. Great idea, Basil.

    Margaritaville has plenty to get drunk on, but is otherwise surrounded by ice and rocks. :/

    The Aztecs are situated nicely between two lakes so we should population boom nicely. We might not produce much, but we will be huge!!

    The proud SWEDES have set up on an impressive oil and iron deposit. Glorious industry is predicted in the future!

    My Aztec civilization ended up on a 1x4 block peninsula. Nothing to do but build a Seaport...

    Nearby oil and iron, lots of silk. China looks like it's in good shape.

    Started heading west to tango with the orange Japanese, and then purple ones outta nowhere. I'd better be careful.

    I feel like we possibly could have explored a bit more rather than stealing land from one another...
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    I still have yet to settle my only city. Nothing but desert to the south of the lakes, so I'm exploring a bit more before i plop down. No real resources to speak of.

    This thread is too confusing.
    Here, new strategy threads:

    Dickbots I

    Dickbots II
