Here are the settings. I think I got it right this time. Spoiler : I'm still stuck on Chieftain Emperor level, until I get more comfortable with some things and maybe break the building spam habit, maybe try to pause more often. Here is the start: Spoiler : It looks like lots of flood plains and some marble. I count 9 flood plain tiles. Is there anywhere to move the scout? I am thinking we can move to (0,3) and then (-1,2) and reveal a little bit of land to the north. Research nothing for the first five turns is the plan. I was going to say the starting techs do nothing for us, but Mining does give us a step towards Bronze, which is always useful. I will edit in early thoughts as well.
