and reloaded and managed to cut a peace deal. Anyways. I was at war with America and the Romans. I was kicking the Amercans butt and advancing on washington and two nuked took out my most productive cities. I was also invading the Romans with 8 Modern Armor, 8 Artillery and 8 mech infantry with the objective of destroying the capital and the spaceships. I was quite happily sailing around when one of my battleships with the go to command stumbled across a submarine and sunk it- I didn't relise straight away though and the Romans managed to sink my transport with my artillery. To cut a long story short it was fubar. My troops had to disembark in the wrong landing zone and with 2 carriers full of bombers and 3 battleships and destroyers have been unable to seize a Roman town yet and they're starting to hit me back. My war vs the Americans was going well if a bit slow for my taste. I had just about broken through the outer ring of cities defending Washington (the plan was for a naval assault) and they started to fire ICBMs at me (I have a singular tactical nuke). The war started 5-10 turns to early for me and I saved over my reload game by mistake. Intead of a rapid advance on Washington and Rome with artillery. I wanted to grab a few key techs 1st and have Stealth bombers in my carriers 1st but I had to move my fleet somewhat early and research it on the way. This is my 1st game on regent and I have been trying to win militarily as I have had a diplomatic victory before. BTW whats the deal with Coal? In 4-5 games of civ I have played I have never got it and had to fight for it as the AI rarely trades it. In this current game I also had to seize Oil, Aluminium and Saltpetre. I was in the lead for until I had to have a couple of brief wars to secure my resources.
