Well, I should probably vote for them too, since I don't realize what about the game is broken without them, so I would lose out on using those exploits! So....balance mod. All I need is the link to the appropriate thread and download.

I also suggest that even if we start out at 1 turn/24 hours, consider the fact that many games tend to go 3 turns per week. If we fall into something more like that, we should let it run that way. Also, when DomIII comes out, if we are only playing 3 times a week, you might find that you actually have the time to play this game to completion and still get your DomIII fix :-). Otherwise, allow someone else to host, and if you want to drop out when DomIII comes out, it doesn't have to stop the game.

Certainly, if folks really, really wanna keep playing even after Dom III is out, then we can keep playing. No big deal.

I recognize that shovah would like to play, but he also has posted that his web will be down until Monday. I'd like this game to get going by this weekend if possible. So, I might make an executive decision and give him the "boot" this time. He's in many games anyway.

Let's plan to start at 1 turn / day until turn 10. Then we can decide whether make it 3 turns per week.

boot me unless you dont start for some reason. Unmodded exploits are things like extremely good lifedrain weapons and false horror spam.

Thanks, shovah. Nothing personal... I'd just like to get the game going.

Hmm - CB 5.4b somebody said. I do have 5.4, but not b - so I would also welcome somebody posting a link.

If we're not able to get more players, we could have a small game (4 - 5 players). That can be a lot of fun. The trick is choosing a properly small map.

Aaahhhh!! Productivity halved? Forge of the Ancients lv 9?! Agh man, they are trying to slaughter my Ulm strategies with Conceptual Balance. This will be kinda sucky for me, but I'm still in. Without the mod, I'd still get wacked by people who exploit the stuff that actually needed balancing in the Vanilla game.
