KAC Dyplo 3 - the greatest Civilization 4 game ever played
« on: December 09, 2008, 12:10:32 PM »

I want to present to you KAC Dyplo3 - a game which as far as I know is the greatest Civilization 4 game ever played. It was a game played by 32 players of KAC club http://www.civilization.org.pl/ It took 284 days during which 225 turns were made by 32 players. Game was played using Pit-Boss with turn timer set to 24 hours. Each player had to login once a day and execute his turn. During game many players were eliminated - only 14 players survived to the end. Game was ended by launching nukes on greatest cities of West - all players agreed that Bombel's Empire (Hatschepsut of Egypt) won that game.

During game a Chronicle was written, players had possibility to sign official pacts / alliances and at the same time we have created a system for unofficial - secret pacts that were revealed after game was finished.

Game was played using Sid Meier's Civilization 4: Beyond The Sword 3.13. Especially for this game a mod was created (to let 32 players to take part in game and add bigger map size and new resources) and a special map script. We worked on rules for many weeks to keep the game as fair as possible. See links at bottom to get full list of people who contributed.

Game was set up on a server bought by our club, one of players provided a place and network connection. It was third game of that kind (fourth game was begun some time ago). It was really great fun - probably the best of all Civ4 disciples as game involved many players, it lasted for months and most of the fun is secret diplomacy (hence the name - Dyplo from Polish "dyplomacja" = eng. diplomacy).

Some data:

Game time frame: 4000 BC - 1575 AD
Real time frame: 2008.02.12 - 2008.11.22 (9 months 10 days = 284 days)

Thanks :) we really like those games, it's the main subject of our talks when we meet in Warsaw (usually every three months - here are descriptions and photos from those meetings: http://forum.civilization.org.pl/viewforum.php?f=188 ) :)

KAC Dyplo 4 has already started... 52 turns were played:
http://www.civstats.com/viewgame.php?gameid=1111

One of our players - Beny - created a dedicated system that reads data from civstats and presents those data in more sophisticated way:

http://kac.site90.net/

(this system will be moved to our server civilization.org.pl soon)

This system shows:
Strona glówna (Main page) - actual state of turn (who finished turn, leader, points)
Gracz (player) - log of chosen player - all the events that concern chosen player. It shows full history (unlike civstats which offers only few days of history)
Statystyki (statistics) - it shows (from left to right): ID, player, leader, executed turns, how many times player entered a game, total time in game, points, missed turns, time per turn, how many times player entered a game per one turn, most common time of entering a game, contact (PM and email via our forum)
Log - shows game log (full history) with few predefined filters: full log, only entering a game, only finishing of turn, only changes of name, only new turns
Wybrana tura (chosen turn) - shows log for chosen turn
Kto jest online (who is online)
Wykresy (charts) - very interesting functionality. It shows charts made using historical data. available charts are:
Wykres liniowy - linear chart of points
Wykres liniowy HD - linear chart of point in HD (high definition) - for example if your PC is connected to HD tv via HDMI :)
Wykres kolowy - circle chart of points
Wykres slupkowy - bar chart of points
Wykres liczby wejsc - count of entering a game chart
Wykres czasu w grze - time spent in game chart
Czasy trwania tur - turn duration chart

Each chart might be filtered by choosing leaders to visualize below the chart and clicking "Filtruj"

Other historical KAC Dyplo games on civstats:

KAC Dyplo 1: http://www.civstats.com/viewgame.php?gameid=246
KAC Dyplo 2: http://www.civstats.com/viewgame.php?gameid=521
KAC Dyplo 3: http://www.civstats.com/viewgame.php?gameid=821
KAC Dyplo 4: http://www.civstats.com/viewgame.php?gameid=1111


So, if you would loike to play with us - it's really feasible, server is up all the time, your only duty is to login once a day and execute your turn. So it doesn't matter in which time zone you reside. The only problem is that Dyplo 4 has started almost two months ago. But we will surely start Dyplo 5 in some time. I'll keep it in mind to contact you before we start :)
