    New PBEM anyone? 3-9-2007

    I would be interested in a couple new PBEM's of Conquests if anyone else is.

    I would prefer a minimal (probably not a problem) human number as to keep turns flowing.

    PM or email me and will look forward to it

    well we could for instance, take one of the scenarios and add some unit creation to it...

    ie: with granary - it would p[roduce a worker every 4 turns
    barracks would produce a military unit every 5 etc

    Ok

    I would also like to discuss further the options you mentioned above

    Maybe we can break up each so we can refer to them individually?

    Up to you

    Like say a post with Granary, makes a free worker or whatever

    then people can say quote that post if any questions

    Might be too much though

    Let me know

    easy mate...

    Granary... should it produce a worker every 3, 4 or 5 turns, or never?

    I think every 5 turns a worker would suffice

    I bet it would be hard to do, but if we could make it so "X" wokers cost -0- upkeep , like maybe you are allowed 8 workers before you have to pay for them and then only a small charge on each

    hehe, I can try to tweak it to do that, but I am unsure that the editor allows such manipulation

    so the next question would be in unit production...

    which buildings shall we have that produce military units?

    It will probably be ok if we could simply not have a severe penalty for excess worker



    so the next question would be in unit production...

    which buildings shall we have that produce military units?
    Barracks should produce a defender of sorts, can this be done to provide the latest or greatest defender unit available?

    I would think maybe every 8 turns a unit is produced, what do you think on the cost?

    I am a little fuzzy on all the buildings CIV III Conquests has:

    Let me try to remember:

    Courthouse How about a unit with not only experience but extra strength? Kind of a leader for the troops to be able to follow?


    Temple A Mounted Unit to move about

    University An attacking Unit

    Harbor A Naval unit

    ColosseumA ranged like trebuchet

    Just some thoughts

    Can we make it where you can rush buy with gold?

    I would like to see the grounds around make a little more forimprovements as well as Marketplaces and then Banks increase gold revenue?

    The idea od having buildings put out units is very interesting. One thing we have to remember, though, is that we need a scenario that actually allows for some building (i.e. a long one or one with cheap buildings), or we won't be able to play with this ability.

    If you take a one unit per 5 turns approach, building something that takes 20 turns to complete, only to get a few units out of it before the scenario ends, would make little sense.

    And just adding those abilities to buildings in an existing scenario would probably change things a lot in favor of the better developed civs (i.e. the differences between civs would become even bigger than originally intended).

    In short: The cleaner the scenario start (less pre-built stuff), and the longer the scenario, the more interesting this modification would be.

    Sounds good

    Look, I loved that game we played Paddy where you had this massive airport supply staging area, so we are closely resembling what it would be like.

    I am very open to suggestions as this will no doubt be Epic

    Gonna be awesome
