    Ellis' Colonies IV

    Independent (AI)
    Hapsburgs (AI)
    French (Ingvar)
    Spanish (McMonkey)
    Swedes (Cupcoffee)
    English (Cobra)
    Dutch (Karlheinz)



    I know I'll be heading out for a few days, but I thought I could give you all the chance to try this classic scenario again, it tends to take a few days to get these things started anyway.
    It's complex and not all nations are equal here so I'd recommend you take a good look at it before joining.

    As for house rules, I'm open to suggestions, as well as tweaks.
    For example, one thing that caught my eye was that the artillery and revetted forts are designated as trade units, which means anybody could potentially build an infinite amount of them for any city, so we might want to take a look at fixing that, either through limitations or perhaps giving them the role of settlers to make the upkeep.

    Also, I picked Sweden for obvious reasons, but I'm willing to pick someone else if it will get the game started.

    Any ideas on house rules other than the regular ones?
    Any thoughts on how we deal with fortresses?

    I think the furs and trade goods units should be the exceptions to the re-homing rule for trade units. The furs because they all start out as NONE anyway, and the trade goods as the Spanish and Dutch only have a limited amount, and can't make use of the furs to generate trade.
    Company traders should not be re-homed, however.

    Concerning cities, you shouldn't be allowed to build new cities in Europe or Africa, only rebuild razed ones, and since city space is limited, you shouldn't intentionally starve your European cities so that you can build a new city in the New World. Make sure to always build the non-combatant improv first as well if it gets destroyed during a conquests.
    Only colonists and Farmers can be used to found a city.

    I don't really know this scenario very well so I can't really suggest anything. I'm happy to go with the flow.

    I've uploaded the rules so that castles/forts/fortresses are no longer counted as diplomatic or trade units.
    Still I'd suggest we should at have some kind of limit to how many you can have in one city. How does a maximum of three sound?

    I´m sorry, but I don't think I can handle this scenario.

    Hello.

    I'm relatively new to this forum (I've been reading up on these games on and off for a few months), but I've been on the English Civfanatics site in the Civ 2 forums for many years.

    I'm experienced at single player, but I've never played multiplayer (play by email or otherwise). I'd like to join this game if you have room.

    I've had a look at this scenario and played as the Dutch until about West India Company and Flintlocks. I've also revealed the entire map at the start of the scenario to look around (if that bothers you). I don't mind playing Hapsburgs or Independent; in some sense I'd prefer to use one of them (a little less pressure to do well on my first game). If you need someone for one of the main powers, I'm willing to play any of them (although it might be best not to make it a power that is likely to affect game balance).
