  1. Im doing great, Lord still loves me, as do my family! Still working 60 plus years young. Still Civin, still playing favorite three PC Games, Call To Power, Ages of Empire II The Conquerors and CIV IV: BTS (all with modifications for my enjoyment. Take care and hope everyone is doing well here!!!
  2. Thanks for your work Solver!
  3. Ok, been playing BTS as my second favorite CIV game behind Call To Power...something I have never really used because I dont know what exactly the use is or how to properly use...Hit Singles/Musicals. I know the Civilopedia says they produce Happinness..but does it automatically extoll happiness or do I have to activate or how does it do this? Thanks Gramps
  4. We were in northeast quadrant, worse place to be as the storm was so slow around 2-4 mph for a long duration. Rain Rain and MORE Rain...shew...glad we are finally drying out
  5. Its been rough as schools are flooded and damaged, 5 weeks and counting but we shall survive
  6. I am just getting back online I live in Onslow County, Jacksonville North Carolina...we were three days in the right quadrant of Florence (North East of eyewall is most times the worse due to circulation) Hurricane Florence went over us...three days with Tropical Storm Force winds and over 36 hours with Hurricane Force Windfield gusts...many over 100 MPH Gusts...sustained over 90 MPH during this time....we lost power for almost 6 full days.....worse one I have been through...makes 7 Hurricanes that have come over the top of us plus another half dozen Tropical named graphics show we had over 30 inches of rain....
  7. Great Nikolai! Good to hear from you too! Saw your name in the credits, congrats!!!! Gramps
  8. Doing great my friend! Been busy at work and of course 6 grandchildren keep me blessed! I was soooo disappointed in CIV V (more than I was disappointed at Sid Meier's Railroad) that I never got the expansion packs and felt used as a long time fan, however it was business and I kept playing and modding - by - Gramps on BTS.....making maps and setups having a blast!!!! I started monitoring and told wife I was going to give it one more shot and am sure glad I did! I couldnt get a strategy guide so I downloaded the PDF at 2K and made my own gameguide...then can add to it when I find some interesting tricks and tips as people post them. Have you heard when the addons such as Map Maker and Modbuddy (thinks thats the name I heard was what they called it????) which are supposed to appear on Steam IIRC?? Take care buddy, Im around more now, played about 7 hours today on CIV VI in between watching NFL all day. Regards Gramps
