I am game, and I'd like to call Ulm as my nation of choice. I'm not a hurry, but I don't really care how many players play, either. Let me know if there is a map I should download for this game.

Oh yeah, what are the settings going to be? I'm used to playing stock SP with stock settings, except with Indies set to 5. Do I need to download that balance mod? If so, I'll need to take a look at some things, because I bet it will affect my strategy.

I'll take C'Tis.

I have not thought much about settings. I'd suggest that we keep it simple. No mods. That way, we won't need to worry about the right versions, etc. We can pick the map once we know how many people are interested.

I suggest the following settings:

PBEM: 1 turn every 24 hours (or faster if players play fast) with extensions granted liberally upon request.
Map: TBA
# of Players: Based on interest
Starting provinces: 1
Indie Strength: 7
Resources: standard default setting
Mods: None
Research: Standard default setting
Graphs: On
Game ends when I have Dom III in my paws, and I have preordered.
Victory condition: Player with greatest number of provinces wins. Ties are possible.

How does that sound?

Pasha

I heavily advise 5.4b balance mods, IMO it just balances the game way better =\. Also I'd like to suggest ruling out death themes.

I am happy excluding death themes, and I am happy using the balance mods, if that is what players prefer.

I'm voting on balance mods simply because the game is too broken without it.
