    Looking for PBEM(s)

    I see a lot of PBEM action here, and I'd like to be taking part in it. So, if anybody needs a constant and dedicated player (kind of a newb though) for a game please let me know here or by PM or at jaguarda //at// vtr //dot// net.

    Well, the more the better.
    But I understand that more players means a slower game and it increases the chances of drops or pauses do to rl issues. 7 is a nice number, but there can also be some AI's (I'd prefer aggresive)
    I'd leave those decisions to the more experienced PBEMers.

    You might want to send out some PM's. There are not too many people you jusr peruse this forum. It's mostly just for tracking.....

    Which gets me thinkning that we should have a sub forum for setting up PBEM's.

    That makes 3 of us interested in a new game...
    we could do a 3 human + 3 AI game
    Im open as to formats, map types etc. I do prefer raging barbs just to keep us on our toes, I'm PMing a guy who sent me a PM to play pbems, maybe that'll make us four...

    It appears I'm that guy, aah Paddy and Grandpa Troll, a few old faces. I've only got one other PBEM going so I'd be keen to try a different one out.

    Posted in the Multiplaying thread, about a medieval Europe (1092 AD) mod which I think would be great also as a PBEM:

    Originally posted by OzzyKP
    I found a great mod/scenario over at CivFanatics that I've been playing today. Custom made for Europe in the middle ages.
    ...
    [There are l]ots of new techs, wonders, units, and civics and new civs (Papal States, Byzantium, Scottish, etc…Its a big map with the full 18 civs and additional barbarian cities too.
    ...

    The Scenario:
    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=163000

    The Mod:
    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=144971

    The Map:

    First idea is we pick all/some (could be more than one per player its just 4 of us) of the small states (Bohemia, Papal States, Prussia, Lithuania, etc) jack up the difficulty level and work together to bring down the AI.

    Or we pick the big powers (France, Russia, Hungary, Turkey, Holy Roman Empire, etc) and battle it out for supremacy of Europe.

    I'm going to see if I can set it up as a PBEM game when I get home from work (8 hours from now, dam it! ) or some of you more experienced fellows, who get home earlier too, could try it

    If that mod can work as a PBEM, it'd be great. We'll see.

    I tried a few mods last night - one in particular Europa Europa (civfanatics) looks great, and it needs to be installed to run this.

    I also tried to set one up as a PBEM and it worked fine.

    I think we try the one Nicoda has recommended above. If everybody agrees the first step would be to download the mod and check they can get it working in SP.

    Once that's done choose a CIV (I'd be keen to try bringing down the big powers) and away we go!
