    State property adds food to watermills and workshops, so you need a food corporation in place to switch.
    State property also gives 10% more hammers to all cities, but production-wise it is still a shadow of Mining Co, hence the thought of switch later on..

    One thing my strategies generally followed is that spaceship parts can be chopped out. Lumber hammers pile up in a city while building wealth/research. It is relatively easy to finish the Apollo program one turn and build the ship the following turn. All that remains is to push the launch button on the subsequent turn. That's a 3-turn schedule. 16 parts each done in a single turn, simultaneously.

    There is usually no need to rush them all in one turn, as you still have research to do.
    It also depends on the situation - On duel this doesn't look like a good strategy.. I do it only on the ecology space part. (and 4-5 forests for genetics).

    Duel would be impractical. But using 16 cities to synchronize parts works well with researching. Even slow building space parts cities can be put to research with 1 turn left on a part. Research and production sych at the end to 1 turn chop the last part. Really there is no need to worry much. Things just work out.

    So you must be thinking of using the National Park with state property/corporations then?

    I always use national park and national epic, no matter which game.
    I call that city "national" ;)

    So you must be bee-lining and that allows for a very early state property too. And both corps are some distance away still.

    yep. I bee-line state property. and then I think it's great, and then at the end it's not so great..

    Finally found a game on (Terra, Rocky, Flat), and failed to get an engineer :(
    I'm not sure I'll continue to use Rocky (looking for more mining resources for Mining Co), but I verified Flat flattens all my my distance costs :)

    One question bugs me and it should be on the MapFinder thread, but I hate to rattle that thread :
    When looking for a start, must I go to main menu to load a new save, or can I just load it from within a game?

    Loading a game from another one is not advisable because it occasionally causes CTD. Although on a Duel size map this is extremely unlikely, I'd rather make it a habit to go to main menu first.

    Never experienced CTD with Civ4 :)
    As long as it is ok for the HoF, it's a few clicks less.. ;)

    Just updating that I had to take a break from Civ for my own health..
    Playing Trackmania 2 and Civ4:Colonization until my head is clear enough to return to Civ again.

    Enjoy the break. I've been looking at state property before corps too. Mainly it is to be able to go from spreading one corp directly into spreading a second corp. It seems SM, factories and biology can be inserted before mining. I forget if I used to get levees before state property. I guess I'd max out food before diving into the corps.

    I have a folder on my desktop for the HoF slot I'm playing. Every save I play gets moved there and I load each new game from that folder. Yes. I quit civ4 each new try.
