Civilization V Multiplayer

Post by Disco » 01 Nov 2016, 13:25

Just checking for any interest in a play-by-email game of Civ V, with several time zones and very different lives it can be hard to get a group of people together for one very long session of Civ but it would be cool to kick start a regular game by email for anyone who wants to join in.

At this point I think it's pretty much Mini and I, but if anyone else is keen just post below and we'll make it happen :thumbup:

Confirmed Players
Disco
Mini

Awesome Kharis! That's 3 confirmed players now, I have no idea how many are normally in a match but it will be brutal if it's all Player Attack members :lol:

Looks as though there is a program called Giant Multiplayer Robot that manages it, but I'll check into that after work.

They could host it and we join it. But I guess there will be a chance of randoms joining that way... Can't hurt to ask

You want to look into Pit Boss mode. It seemed a lot of trouble, but the name might help you find what you're looking for.

What would the expectations in terms of play time be for the game?

In what regard, overall game time or how long would each turn be? Because I don't know the answer to either yet :P

Yeah I'm not sure what the options are for settings, but I'd say the turn time limit should be no more than 24hr - and if what I'm reading is correct then if you miss your turn the AI steps in.. or amybe I'm just hoping :lol: I didn't get a chance to research it as much as I wanted to last night.

Also on the other side of the coin, if anyone is based in the Eastern states (sorry Doug) and would like a normal multiplayer game, we can also tee that up as well as long as we could all commit a few hours to a single game? Likely would aim to start on a Friday afternoon, or Sat/Sun.

I'm happy to try a game this Sunday afternoon if you want Disco...
I can set aside a few hours, and we can put it on the quickest game possible and go nuts...

A couple of AI...

Also I'm going to see if I can set up one of my spare computers as a server, and see if it will work for hosting a Pitboss game of this.

I too could be in on these shenanigans, but I don't have Brave New World, if that makes things harder. (Dang, can't believe it's still $50 :wtf:)

That shouldn't matter.
It just means that when starting the MP game that all DLC is turned off
