    I tried for a speed conquest record using the same settings and strategy and I only got 900 AD. I guess I have a long way to go.

    I am not paying attention to free techs at all.
    In this game i started with Bronze Working.

    You are indeed a smart fart SmartFart!
    Congratulations!

    If I understand correctly, you only build 1 city yourself, and you wander around collecting huts before you build it?

    The most remarkable thing about Civ is that there seems to be an almost infinite number of ways of winning. So many games there are so few correct "formulas".

    Smart Fart - what starting techs are your personal wet dream? Our research would suggest that the Sioux (or maybe the Persians) have the best probability of warlike techs albeit based largely on 'large map' experience - have you tried playing as Sioux?

    Not really.
    I build 2 cities on 3750 bc. I haven't kept a log for other four.

    Oldman - I'm a programmer with the glorious title of Webmaster - normal sort of thing - lots of responsibility no authority. These days I dabble in Systems Theory & Cybernetics - but Civ is more fun!

    No reason at all. I played as Aztec from old Amiga500 days.
    Nothing more than habit.

    SmartFart - did you pick the Aztecs for any reason - or was this a random choice. I ask this because the nature of the starting techs of the individual civs are quite different.

    Yeah, have fun with all that work Scouse!!!! Don't go marking them too hard, now will you?!?!

    So what kind of IS do you specialise in? is it programming, webstuff, general stuff?? I once had to program the timing sequence for some traffic lights using a 8085 (maybe) processor and assembly language - muchos funos!!!!

    I forgot to say small map!!! so what 40x50, that's the small one on the map editor isn't it? is that one ok? And no restarting civs, and the scenario!!!! ok, i'll sort it out!!

    Don't forget small (or very small) world and no restart of eliminated civs. If you saved as a scenario people could play at whatever level they were happy with.

    Have fun there Scouse!!!! Oh, the joys of teaching/lecturing?!?!?! Is it at least interesting stuff you're marking? or is it 1st year maths homework?!?! ha ha, first year maths, happy memories!!!!

    Unless Paul wants to start this one up too, like the occ i could give it a go if no one else does!!!! i've got a little web space available at uni, access is limited but i can give it a go?!?!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for the map, or do we just go for random, diety, raging, 7civs?

    I'll start a new thread next week, unless someone else does?!?!

    Sounds good - I'm in (with the reservation that I have just entered the 'buried under two weeks marking' stage of the year)

    Scouse: just a thought on something you mentioned earlier, about a occ bloodlust game in the off weeks!!
    Well thinking about it an occ in bloodulust wouldn't work cause as soon as you conquer anyone it stops being occ!?!? But we could do a bc bloodlust challenge, using a standard map for comparison times? Does this idea grab anyone?
