    So, we've done Killing Floor-a-thons, we've done Terrariathon, so why not do a massive Civilization V: Brave New World ... athon.

    But, but, but, how will this work!? Well, there is an awesome program called Giant Multiplayer Robot, which allows us to set up a hot-seat match for basically anyone. You will be able to make your turn, then be done with it. Save the game, click the confirmation and that is it. You will get a notification when you are able to make your move again.

    What you'll need to do to participate:
    Download Super Multiplayer Robot
    Post on the thread here saying: name and what Civ you will be playing as.

    I will notify everyone as to when the game is starting. If you are unable to make a move for a few days (or a week) please say so in this thread.

    You will need ALL DLC'S (That includes the civ packs!)

    Game Mechanics:
    Quick Combat, Movement, Pace.
    Pangea (So that way everyone can find everyone and no one is left on a small island themselves)
    All victory types
    Starting Bias ON
    Prince Level
    Size will be determined by the number of registered users. There will be no AI.

    Participants:
    Fr0z3n - The Celts (Religion, hooooooo)
    Schwa - France
    Erich - Brazil
    (write in) Pyris Omni - Venice
    Tarry - Shoshone
    Lemmines - Japan
    Aly - Korea

    So... yea, as of now I can't get Giant Multiplayer Robot to work... apparently save file data structure is different and so GMR doesn't recognize it.

    I'll be looking for a work-around.

    Doesn't Brave New World have built in Pitboss support? What do you need GMR for?

    Someone has to always have the game running to have it be continuous,24/7. They will be releasing servers for pitboss soon though, if i recall correctly.

    Everyone has been invited, the game has been set.

    The game as began...

    There is an 18 HOUR TURN TIMER. You will get 18 hours after the start of your turn to make your move. If you do not, you will be skipped. You can be skipped 10 times (like a week or 2 of inactivity).

    If you go on vacation, there is an "I'm on vacation" mode, where the AI will take over for you while you are away. You can disable that by clicking it again when you return.

    If you do go on vacation, say so in this chat.

    I'm just gonna revive this thread because i'm curious as to how it went. I'm looking into using GNR to play a game with some friends, but i feel like it'd be impossible to complete without getting steam notifications when when it's your turn (which, from my understanding, GNR doesn't support).

    So how did it work out for you fellas?

    It was fine when people remembered to play.

    However, it was reaaaaaally slow. We ended maybe doing it for a few weeks before it fizzled out.

    Civilization Beyond Earth Launches on Friday.

    I'm going to throw myself more into debt and despair by purchasing it. Anyone else?

    Already purchased it, and probably will end up playing the heck of it in the first few weeks.
