Default *Noobieworld* Fast game for noobs! (ended)

** THE GAME ENDED: Mictlan - P3D wins the game at turn 70 **

THE GAME Noobieworld

Setups:
EA Game
Server: Llamaserver
Vanilla game + BI v2.1 mod
- Mod: http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=39225
6 players + 6 AI

Turns: 15h + quickhost (turn will roll as soon as everyone sent them)
- this is a fast turn game, so I expect everyone can complete first 1-15 turns in no time!
- we will vote about this when time goes forward.

The game is for noobs only!

Ulm - Mordus
Sauromatia - Frozen Lama

T'ien Ch'i - AI
Tir na n'Og - AI

** Send your pretender to llamaserver **

Instructions for beginners:
Quote:
by llamabeast:
- Make sure you have the same mods enabled as the game you're playing in (Preferences->Mod Preferences) although only mods affecting pretender design, such as Conceptual Balance, actually matter
- Go to Game Tools -> Create a pretender god in Dominions. Don't set a password, since for PBEM games they're not helpful and occasionally annoying (e.g. if you need a sub)
- Go to the savedgames/newlords folder in the dominions directory, and find your pretender file (e.g. mid_pythium_0.2h)
- E-mail the file to: pretenders[ at ]llamaserver[ dot ]net
- Crucially, you must have the game name in the subject line of your e-mail
- Join up in CHAT, we can talk there

It makes AI to work better. It turns off some cheap indy units. For example AI nations wont recruit useless militia units anymore, instead they will recruit more likely nationbased units wich are always better. This happens simply by increasing cost of those useless units.

You are right, modified setups a bit to clear things out.

Don't you think Orania is rather big for a 4-8 players game?

It's good size map for noobs when there is 4-8 beginner players and 4-8 AI nations. It gives time and space for new players to advance and build up - atleast I think so

I'll try if we are playing 12h turns. I have only ever played with Late R'lyeh and only up to a sigle player turn 24. But I'd be willing to try something new.

P.S. My friend suggested I get this game and I really don't know what I'm doing.

Good, this is for you then. Don't worry, playing the game is the best way to learn. MP games are even better and most fun ones. You want to try Early R'lyeh?
