Playing a game on pangea/emperor/standard and using the balance-combined mods (some of them). Anyway, I get off to a bit of a slow start with Hiawatha: limited iron, bad location, few lux, no nearby neighbors to conquer, etc. Plus some suboptimal play on my part. I finally get things rolling and kill off a neighbor. Start building up the military. Things are looking ok around turn 160. Then I look at Siam (which was very very far away from me at the start - didn't physically find them until they conquered Germany). Siam is leading in everything. They've got a 6 or 7 tech lead on me (and I'm second in tech). Double my military size (and I'm second in military, mind you). They control 10 CS. Pulling in massive GPT. Tops in land. Tops in pop. And of course, elephants everywhere. Just venting. I just wish the runaway civ would be someone other than Siam once in a while. They spawn like ... well whatever it is that spawns really fast. Anyone else feel their UA needs a nerf?
