Description

From a forum thread:

cazfi:

[Ignatus:]

I have played a game in Experimental (2.6 beta2) which was won by culture earlier then my explorer landed from my first caravel to another shore, just because I have built libraries and other players haven't; that was, like, too fast.

Sounds like victory_min_points is WAY too low... and checking the experimental ruleset it really is only 1000. For comparison, variant2 uses 1000000.

(civ2civ3 has victory_min_points = 10000; dunno if we want to revise that upward too. bard already said that culture victory has not been balanced yet.)

One should not put too much weight to variant2 value, though. 1) Other parts of the ruleset define how much culture points accumulate/turn. 2) Variant2 is for longer games in general, so also more culture points accumulate over longer period. 3) Variant2 value is rather experimental in itself.

In experimental ruleset regular city (Library+University+Colosseum) gives 4 points of history/turn, and capital (+Palace) gives 6. 20 cities gives 82 points/turn. Over course of 200 turns that would make 16400 points. Maybe 15000 would be a good value for victory_min_points?

There's more culture granting buildings in civ2civ3 and sandbox than in experimental, so presumably they should have higher victory_min_points. But maybe not much, since not all cities have all the buildings, and anyway there's quite high victory_lead_pct. Maybe 18000?

I agree 10000 is a bit low. Something between 15000 and 20000 sounds good to me for civ2civ3/sandbox. I'd vote for 20000 with a lower victory_lead_pct. Which value of victory_lead_pct would allow to win with 20000 when the second player is below 15000?
