Civilization Globulation?

Post by Einarin » Mon Nov 06, 2006 12:36 am

Now, seeing as I've never seen any mention of this anywhere, I'm going to assume that this has gone unnoticed, but Globulation 2 is also an excellent civilization-building game. Next time you win a game on a difficult map to build on, click keep playing and see how big you can make your civ. Yes, it sounds boring, but considering it seems to have been entirely unintentional, its very good (I seem to remeber someone saying that nature was the other opponent in Glob2).

What if we take advantage of this, maybe make a civ-building mode? Have a goal of having the largest population on a given map, or play to see who can reach the prestige limit first? This is essentially implementable now using reach2infinity, any thoughts?

well, I don't know about a civ-building mode, but I have played games where we have decided to play for the first to win by prestigue and it is very interesting on some of the maps where the resources are limited. Having to properly manage how many units, etc. becomes quite a challenge to balance. It's fun to try :)

I think appleboy is right and if we were to do anything like that it would be best to simply tweak the prestige system.

yeah, the number of level 4 schools you need to win most games is way too high, its not a viable route to victory.

Probably be a good idea to configure prestige level when the game itself is set up . I think it's a good idea and it shouldn't be hard to implement, I'll post a features request in the bugtracker. If no one gets around to it before the term ends for me I may see about implementing the feature myself.
