    A new series as Australia (Immortal difficulty) on the default TSL Earth map. In a somewhat unexpected development we start on the island-continent of Australia...

    It's very interesting that you spent some of your time in the Land Down Under. I have never visited there before, but it sounds interesting.

    Its wired, I tried this yesterday and I got the exact same start as Australia. I mean, I did not play more than 10 turns (I though i'd wait till YNAEMP was updated as I liked it more without having to be limited to 8 civs.) but I had the exact same resource locations as well (so that where I feel it comes down to being the same star location.) So you might have been right about them changing it or adding true TSL. Either way though, relay enjoying your sires so far, can't wait for the next video.

    Australia's a very different sort of place to live. I found it reasonably familiar but then I'd spot something or someone will say/do something and I'd be reminded of the differences again. Guess that's how it is everywhere in the English-speaking world though!

    The map must have been changed at least a little because the starting location on that map for the Far East was definitely Borneo / Southeast Asia and not Australia. I didn't play a full game but I did load it up and read through some guides on it when it was first released. Resources staying the same is how it worked previously I think, but I couldn't swear to these resources being the same as the ones that were on the version which had you start in Borneo / Southeast Asia. Glad to hear that you're enjoying it! Next video should be out today around 3pm GMT+0 (it's actually uploading as we speak!).

    Today we settle all (well, most) of Australia and start thinking about how to obtain a few more luxury resources.

    Making a play for Petra. It'll probably be okay, but the salt will be real if the AI beats me to it...

    We meet more friends, and discover that our nearest neighbours aren't the Greeks, but the Sumerians.

    We discover the new world today, which is pretty exciting. We also figure out that it's empty which is mind-blowing.

    Whoops, missed a day here. Sorry about that. We build the Panama canal. The Suez might be lost to us but we can definitely link the Pacific and the Atlantic.



    Exploring North America reveals some pretty nice settlement spots.

    We take advantage of an empty New World (well, except for the barbs) and start settlement in North America.

    I take a moment and reconsider our plans for the settlement of the New World. We've our pick of the place, so no need to settle suboptimal spots, right?

    We put our Diggers into action. Our first proper military unit all game - and they wreck a serious amount of face. :D

    We find a really nice settlement spot in South America. Like, super-nice. It's "trekking through the barb-infested amazons worth it"-kinda nice.

    Hong Kong falls. Which works out pretty nicely for us as we can now liberate it. Then allow it to fall again. Then liberate it. Repeat ad nauseum.

    We start up the RAAF, and come up with an ingenious solution to our difficulties in establishing a forward base to liberate Hong Kong.





    Space! Also, maybe we should take a crack at figuring out something called "the wheel"? You're right, probably not worth the time.
