Hey guys, I was just wondering if it was possible to start a single player custom game where you control all the slots? I think this would be good to recreate the rise of historical empires and how they expanded etc.

I played around earlier but couldn't seem to do it. I could only control one slot and the rest were AI. This would also be a good feature to play against friends on the same computer although I wouldn't personally use it for that.

If this is already possible could you please tell me how. If not, is it possible that this could be implemented?

Thanks

Not possible unless you have them all under 1 slot, you can try Local Deployment for a similar effect though, but remember it doesn't work with superbonuses :)

If you want help just PM me :)

You can also join my clan where we have like-minded people too :)

You could create some alt accounts for the purpose, start a multiplayer game and invite only your alts. You would need to use multiple tabs/windows for it though, but it would work.

Ahhh I see, sounds quite difficult and time consuming to carry it out that way :/


Thanks for your help and thanks for the offer of joining the clan. I'm not going to be joining a clan now but I may consider it eventually.

Thanks

Kinda wondering why you created a thread if you weren't interested in help, but, ok...

I said thanks for your help.... but it turns out there isn't a suitable easy solution to this.

I have no idea what you mean that I wasn't interested in help... unless you're talking about me joining your clan, which isn't what I made a thread for.

I'd be interested in playing a game like that. It'd take some planning to implement properly, but that sounds cool.

I think so too. You could use it to play out some scenario, and then playback the game, record it, and make a YouTube video out of it, maybe with voice-over discussion or commentary. You could potentially use the chat to have turn-by-turn commentary or a story/narrative and/or role-playing by each of the 'different' players.

It's not an original name in the first place, so I don't think it necessarily indicates who you're thinking of.

That's an interesting idea. I'd love to see it work.

I was thinking of setting something up like this anyway, I love LD, and wanted to make a kind of game where you played several different countries. I mean you could easily make a kind of Allies Vs Axis but as a 1v1 that way :)

You just need a good map for it :)

A special map more than a good one.

If they are all on the same team, won't it be annoying to try to issue attack orders?

Why a special one? I'll make one in a few day, just for a laugh :)

I don't think so wct...

I play a lot of LD games and I've never had a problem with issuing orders?

@Fleecemaster: The OP was talking about playing entirely single-player. Even with LD, if armies from bonus A want to attack armies from bonus B, then you have to select "Treat allies as enemies", otherwise you'll end up with just a transfer: because ultimately they are all controlled by the same player, and thus 'on the same team'. In fact, I don't even know if you can use "Treat allies as enemies" on your own troops or not.

Ooooh... Maybe I missunderstood, I thought he meant a team playing against another team online or something... Sorry!
