Number of Players

Postby Eusebio Ptolomeu » Sat Oct 14, 2017 4:50 pm

When the game says that the maximum number of players is 64 for example, is this the maximum number of players at a given time, or troughout the entire game? Like, in turn 50 we have 64 players, but in turn 51 one of these players died. So, can another player be added to the game at this point?

Player slot remains reserved even when the player dies. This is necessary for keeping some historical data about him/her valid, for example for Fog of War of other players.

Is there a way to change this limit of AIs? Editing some file, perharps, where we can allow more AIs per game?

Original Civ1 does something like this. Any time a player (there, an AI) is defeated before 1 AD, a new one is created.
