    ANZAC: The Game


    Spain
    Deity
    Earth
    Huge


    All default settings except:
    Max civs: 22 Civs
    Max CS: 41
    Resources: sparse


    restart the game until you spawn in Australia near the barrier reef. Take one with nature for +16 faith from the two natural wonders and +1000 early gold.


    Good luck.


    :scan:

    Oh now you love me.


    My only advice: rush buy a shrine ASAP if you want a religion because the AI starts spamming faith early.


    ALL DLC enabled gold version for anyone that cares.

    You won't need luck with settings like that, games is already won, what's the point? :rolleyes:

    The blue settler 3 tiles from Madrid makes me curious.

    status: turn 25

    +17 faith
    20 science

    There is a problem with spawns on huge earth maps with lots of civs and CS. I DOW on turn 2 for the free worker.

    Spain so desperately needs a balance patch. As in, to balance out Isabella's manic depressive effectiveness.

    I've lost enough at Civ 5, it's nice to win every once and while with ease.


    Latest screen cap attached.

    I have lost plenty too, but don't find cooked settings appealing, but to each his own.

    I prefer IC3 to this, sure it's a slog and not very enjoyable but at least is an honest map, and a challenging water map, which is rare and one you won't likely rush with frigates which is even rarer, which makes for a different and interesting game. Trying for some BS on it now, hope there will be oil somewhere...

    Are there any other AIs on that continent?

    Thanks. I actually found the truth myself after playing the map a bit.

    Spoiler :
    Well... *rolls eyes*

    Don't worry I will take care of your cities well! ^__^
    Spoiler :
    Also no other AIs saw this. So this will forever be our little secret, Willy.



    This is so easy it's not even remotely funny, lol. It also reminded me why Babylon is OP with the early +8 science.

    Spoiler :

    I was 4th in science at turn 76, lol....



    One oddity I found...

    Spoiler :
    Why does the Ottoman capital only have 6 pop by turn 92? That seems impossible... it doesn't SEEM like his capital got taken by someone else or anything like that.

    Oh god please die in a fire Harun al-Rashid.

    Spoiler :


    I didn't buy the Shrine. I just hard-built it and still got One with Nature. I didn't know that the Spanish UA doubles One with Nature's bonus until today. This is also the first game which I saw the AI taking Faith Healer.

    In all honesty I haven't played the map at all. I like how you are #4 in literacy on turn 76. Keep pressing your advantage, the AI can do some sneaky stuff.

    The earth map is weird. There are basically no +faith wonders and with the amount of civs spawning there are probably some civs that you could count as essentially CS. I also think the sparse resource check is going to significantly affect the game.


    I was hoping to create an endgame close to real world conditions.

    Well I stopped playing it; I am almost certainly going to win by science given my lead already, and the time per turn is getting too long.

    Nobody expects the Spanish scientific revolution.

    Yeah, turn time is unfortunately the problem with doing a map of that size with that many civs and CS.

    Eh, I found myself a great mix. Mayans, desert start. Take DF. Win.

    Actually. Desert starts with DF are just OP anyways. I enjoy the crap out of it, though. Nothing like the Mayan Papal State crushing surrounding European civs in tasty RP revenge.

    Considering I was contemplating using "spanking" instead of "crushing" maybe I should lay off Civ for a while.

    I don't know what you are talking about. This thread is how awesome Spain is when you get NW.

    That may have been revelatory for you, but it's been a pretty well known fact since, um, the day after the Spain DLC was released. In fact, there was a thread last week with nothing but OP Spain saves.

    If you reroll, reroll, reroll to get multiple NWs for Spain, yes, they can be fun to play. Without the NWs, meh. Some like that imbalance; others find it irritating.
