  • Spanish Mod solves infamous "Double Move" problem in civ4

    Editorial by Robert Plomp: Astrologix of the Apolyton Spanish Forum responded to the "1UPT / Simultaneaus" debate in our forum with the following valuable post about the infamous "Double Move" issue that haunts Pitboss games for Civ4!

    At the Apolyton spanish forum, we play simultaneous Civ4BtS pitboss games with a mod created by one of our members, Manolo. This mod does solve entirely the double move problem, because when a war is declared the turn time is doubled. If the time turn is 24 hours, then it becomes 24 (attacker) and 24 (defender). And the mod establishes a schedule. Of course, these are max times. If the players play quickly, the game runs quickly.


    When other players come into that war, they must be careful on their first turn into that war, to play into the right half of the turn, then the mod places them on the right side and so on. So, complicated wars with many players involved are possible. When a player tries to enter the game in the "wrong" half of the turn, the mod don't allow them to enter. They must wait until the last player of the other camp has played, in which case the mod sends an email to the next players. Other peaceful players, can enter the game when they want.

    We are very happy with this mod and play a whole championship, the so called APT, since two years from now. The mod not only manage the turns, it does more things, for exemple to help the admin to manage saves and restart games easily and accurately if problems occurs.

    You can read about here:

    And download the mod here (we have a second mod for Next War games) :

    • Civilization IV: Civilization Reference
      Martin Gühmann

      If you've been looking for a comprehensive, interactive reference tool for Civilization IV and its Warlods and Beyond the Sword expansion packs your wait is over. Apolyton Civilization Site staff member Robert "CyberShy" Plomp has exhaustively put together such a resource that comes in a general and unit-speicifc variety.

      Through an array of drop-down menus, mix and match combinations of particulars from the basics such as civilization and civics to particular buildings and bonuses on the 'General' sheet, and type through required technology with the 'Unit' document. Information is displayed in data-rich but easy-to-follow table format with colourful icons and pleasant shading.

      Should you any updates needed in future that have not been applied (e.g. as a result of one or more patches), contact Plomp directly.

      If you wanna comment on this please to so in the related forum thread Civ4 Interactive Series Reference Sheets.

    • Civ 4 the List: List of Threadmasters
      DarkCloud
      The List for Civ IV was a project that could not have been accomplished without the hard work and dedication of the many Threadmasters and ideas-finders on the forums. While idea-suggestors are likewise important, I have compiled here a list of the volunteers who went above and beyond the call of duty to take on the task of threadmastering a thread for the List. And here they are, alphabetically: Asmodean- Former Administrator of the List Azazel- Government and Social Engineering DarkCloud- Administrator; Civilizations, General, Scenario/Map Editor; List Formatter Fosse- The Polls Ixnay- Space Lajzar- Units MattH- Cheats Nikolai- AI, Resources, Terrain Octavian X- Wonders Platypus Rex- Regional and City Menus TechWins- Diplomacy Trifna- Movement/Supply, User Friendliness ...

    • Civ 4 the List: The Polls
      Fosse
      Introduction Realizing that some polls about hot topics have already left the top page, and that newcomers to the discussion seldom dig through the back pages in order to find out what's been discussed before, I've decided to compile a list of the Civ 4 List related polls. I've abandoned keeping a running talley of votes, as it's a great deal of work that is immediatley outdated, and if you really were interested in the results you would visit the poll and read the comments. Now... the polls: Stacked vs. Single Unit Combat: The Battle ContinuesShould units be stacked into "armies" that fight and operate as a single unit, or does moving them one at a time provide a boost to strategic considerations? Resources: How to HandleIs a system with stores and limits on resources a better simulation and more fun, or tedious micromangement? From Civ 3 to Civ 4More of the same, or a bold new direction for Civ 4? Squares, Hexes, Octagons... Pick your poison, the traditional Civ Map, traditional War Games map, or something else entirely. Eras in Civ 4?Is the new era system a great addition, or a stifling hindrance? Espionage & Assymetrical WarfareDoes Bond get his own unit? To 2000 AD or Beyond?Civ, From the Ancients to the Stars; or Civ, The Whole of Human History. {The List} United NationsA resolution for change... do you Veto? {The List} What Should Happen to Civ Traits?Should Civ 4 have homogenous Civs or even more differences? Terrain Improvements"Give me Workers, or Give me Death" vs "Micromagement Gives me Death." Nomads and ChiefdomsShould Civ 4 let us wander the great wide open? Civ 4 ideas - straights and canalsDo you want straigts? Or canals? Civ 4 idea: Armies instead of unitsOnce again, armies or single units? Health in Civ 4?Should we have sick Civs? Emphasis on AgeWhich historical era, if any, should get a boost in Civ 4? Civ 4 resistanceDo you want partisans from Civ 2? Resistors from Civ 3? Or something new for Civ 4? Fire and MovementHow should firepower and movement rates affect combat in Civ 4? Stacking Limits Y/NAssuming we have stacks, what sorts of stack limits should there be? Improved Poll: When should Civilization IV end?What is a good time for the game to end? Future Techs in Civ 4Which future era techs would you like in Civ 4? What ARE wonders, anyway?Well? What are they? Pollution Managers:Would you like Pollution Managment added to city screen? Tech Transmission Here is some food for thought from Civfanatics. -Respectfully Compiled by Fosse...
