Hi! I'v always had a soft spot for coastal empires. It seems a bit odd to me, since idk if they ever have been a much better option than landlocked ones, but still I never got them out of my heart. (Might also be that lack of success is why I am sort of obsessed with them). So here I am asking for advice on how to make a proper one? Production seems to have been my biggest problem usually, altought apparently, I have prioritized it a bit too much over gold. I did try to do them most with the Dutch and Indonesia in R&F. Haven't had the privilidge to play GS much yet. P.S. I don't really like archipelago etc. maps.
