MoDA comment 1180 AD

Only a very short turn by turn to-do list from the MoDA this time since in the polls it was decided to leave the exact implementation of building the stuff in the build queues to the president.

Some points:

(A) Deliver caravans from cities that do not yet have 3 trade routes in Dou, other caravans will be used for building wonders in Neumatic.

(B) Follow the build queues in the relevant polls. Tim's points make a lot of sense and the MoDA recommends these suggested adjustments except maybe for 7 (LP), the reason for getting the MP ASAP is to get rid of Elvis.

(C) Rush buying should mainly occur in less developed cities like FJ, BP, BBF, BS etc., we want to get all size 3+ cities to a similar stage of development.

(D) Keep rush buying and partially rush buying since we are not going to collect a lot of cash.

(E) Finishing improvements ASAP in cities near Neu that do not need many additional improvements (e.g. LC and RF) so they can start churning out wonder-building caravans is a good idea.

(F) Triremes must be kept near BP and FJ to transport caravans from these cities to Coresux (they are to be delivered in Dou).

(G) Build the crusaders in the build queues ASAP. Due to changed circumstances the fortress near Ipec will not be necessary since Naer will build crusaders meaning the elephant near Ipec should be stationed in VM.

(H) Rehome the settler currently stationed in VM in Naer, Ipec is not well prepared to support two settlers.

(I) The road being built N of Superstorms is a great idea. When it's finished a road to Electrical seems like a good idea or mining the coal.

(J) Maybe explore a bit SW of Trollhättan.

(K) Fine tune tax/sci as necessary from 1220 AD.

(L) BBF can celebrate by hiring an Elvis. This should grow it to size 4 but hardly more, especially since it doesn't have a temple yet.

(M) The MoDA's shopping list is rather long so unless something big happens it looks as if many (6-10) turns can be played now.

1180 AD
Lower luxuries to 20%, set tax=70%, sci=10%. Adjust production in BS and Naer (work more ocean squares) and hire a temporary Elvis in LP.

The MoDA also recommend rush buying the following:

Stock exchange in Dou
Caravan in LC
MP in RF
Caravan in LP
Temple in Igl
Temple in FJ
Temple in BP
Crusader in Superstorms
Diplomat in BBF
Probably also rush buy some of the other items marked with an "RB" in the build queues

1200 AD
LP builds caravan, start Marketplace.

1220 AD
Set tax=50-60%, sci=20-30%. Rush buy MP in LP.

1240 AD
LP builds MP, Elvis can probably be eliminated.
