SGOTM 21 - Conquering the Hearts

Image

Sign up NOW for the next SGOTM, featuring another BSPollux map administered by Deckhand.
You will play as Pericles of Greece.

You are good friends with Willem of Oranje, the leader of the Dutch. You are in contact with him from the start and you will be on the same continent. For years he has made fun of you for being a bookworm and more interested in discussing arts and politics with old men than everything else. He himself is a total party animal and skirt chaser. Now the time has come to beat him in his own game:

Win the hearts of the most prominent women of the world, all three female leaders, before you reach a victory condition of your choice.

That's the plan. But how do you 'win the heart' of a leader? Willem knows about your plan, but he's a good sportsman and willing to help you master the arts of male/female interaction. On condition you pay all the bills, he will accompany you on a series of training parties during which you will discover different options to charm the three ladies.

Visit the Sign-up Thread to see the full game details and rules.

The theme of the game is shown on the right (click it if you prefer a boring old starting point image).

The Sign-up Thread is now open, and a Pre-game Discussion Thread is also available.

The SGOTM is on the starting blocks! Sign up HERE ... NOW !

ModCast Special: "Modding Beyond Earth"
By DanQ at 2014-12-20 18:18
Image Out there. ModCast regular co-hosts Rob "Rob (R8XFT)" Riley, Jett "TPangolin", Jan "Janboruta" Boruta and Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk discuss Civilization: Beyond Earth for the first time in the special "Modding Beyond Earth" now netcasting. It carries a runtime of 25m46s.

The summary of topics is as follows:

- 01m36s | Part 1
First thoughts, impressions and suggestions for Civilization: Beyond Earth from the panelists.
- 12m07s | Part 2
Overviewing the initial wave of BE mod releases including "Weaker Trade", "Beyond Balance", "EuropSpace" and "The Holy See".
- 19m20s | Part 3
Looking ahead to total conversion MODs using Civilization: Beyond Earth and the familiarity of Civilization V, the engine upon which it is based.

ModCast is the first spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast, and this is the first "Focus" special not under that heading. Fellow sibling RevCast focuses on Civilization: Revolution, SCivCast on Civ social gaming and TurnCast on Civ multiplay.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Hall of Fame Challenge Series XV
By lymond at 2014-12-20 09:15
ImageThe Hall of Fame Team would like to welcome new players, and welcome back old vets, to the Fifthteenth running of the Civfanatics Civ IV Hall of Fame Challenge Series.

HOF Challenge XIV was a successful and competitive installment of the series, won by Pollina. HOF Challenge XV is a collection of 10 games with a time limit of 6 months to complete them (from the 15th December 2014 to 15th May 2014). The games are designed to (hopefully) be more defined than the usual gauntlet games and challenging in a different way than a general Hall of Fame game, yet far from impossible to complete.

The winner will be the person who finishes the most games and collects the most points along the way (10 for 1st in each individual game, down to 1 for 10th). Progress results for all games can be found here. There are individual threads for each game in the Challenge Series forum so head on over and check it out.

For those unfamiliar with the CFC Hall of Fame (HOF), we encourage you to try the challenge as a way of introducing yourself to the HOF. The Challenge series is just one feature of the HOF. A Gauntlet series of games is run monthly. In addition you can simply submit any of your games to the HOF. All valid games are recorded to a database and ranked under various categories. The HOF enables you to compare your progress against other HOFers over all time or simply track your own progress. In other words, the HOF is as competitive as you want it to be.

In addition, the CFC HOF offers two ongoing challenge/achievements called the Quatromasters and Elite Quatromasters which can be found here. All valid game submissions to the HOF apply toward your progress of these long-term achievements. Are you up for the challenge!

All of the games need to be played using version 3 of the BUFFY mod (BUFFY-3.19.003), found here. Standard Hall of Fame Rules apply to all games.

TurnCast Special: "The Great Mistakes"
By DanQ at 2014-12-06 15:15
Image When wondering what could possibly go wrong, it will probably mean a lot. Regular players Daniel "DanQ" Quick, "Makahlua", Scott "AlphaShard" Dirk and "UberMarklar" are accompanied by fellow co-operative Civilization V multiplayer players in the first TurnCast (TC) special entitled "The Great Mistakes". With a runtime of 41m45s, it contains snippets of the weekly gaming group's first foray into Civilization: Beyond Earth just the day after its worldwide commercial release.

TurnCast is the third spin-off of the Civ strategy-centric PolyCast on which Quick and Makahlua serve as regular co-hosts; the modding-centric ModCast was the first, and the console-centric RevCast the second, such spin-off. The fourth spin-off, SCivCast, covers Civ on social media.
