Okay, I've found this one really challenging. My request is to see if anyone has ideas on accomplishing this UHV or if anyone who already done it themselves can describe their tactics. Goals: 1. First to circumnavigate 2. Control four [Edit: I incorrectly said "five"] dye resources by 350 AD-turn 138 3. 7 cities around the Mediterranean by 350 AD-turn 138 [Edit: added in the exact dates] Now, circumnavigation is easily manageable given the right tech advances, so I’ll ignore that one. Next, the dye resources. *There are two dye resources in the Middle East, northeast of Sur, northwest of Babylon. Due to Babylon’s cultural influence and the possible occupation of Turkey by Greece, you may need to go to war with them as well as taking Sur and Jerusalem. *There is one dye resources in west Egypt, on the coast. A war with Egypt seems necessary here. [Edit: Removed my incorrect references to obtainable dyes in Paris and London] Are there others dye resources that are viable for Carthage to get that I’m missing? Okay, so that leaves the seven cities. Viable, especially since you can conquer cities and not necessarily settle them yourself, as I understand it. However, wars with Babylon, Egypt, and possibly Greece and Persia, combined with the aggressive Romans, stretch you out very thin very quickly. In my attempt I only managed two dye resources and six cities, although admittedly that was my first and only stab at it. So, any ideas or comments?
