    Although I suppose this goes without saying, that is a very good start.

    I guess those are floodplains below the gold? Settle in place?

    Nah, settle 1E and grab all three gold. Fewer floodplains that way, but that also means less of a health problem, and you can use the others with another city, not to mention that you don't waste one by settling on it.

    This is hard with Raging Barbs :(

    Need to get Archery First, then try for Great Wall.

    TMIT? Your overdue......

    Dealing with Raging Barbs shouldn't be too hard, just build Archers as you plan. You don't even need the Great Wall.

    Settle 1E. There will be 3 golds and a minimum of 3 floodplains in the BFC.

    LOL ....


    Spoiler :
    I tried again and settled 1N on the dyes to get the stone and built the Great Wall.

    Eventually the Barbarians destroyed both Zulu and Persia by 870 BC, while I'm sitting happilly untouched with 7 cities =D


    And I just discovered another source of gold near bablylon ^^.

    I can't load this save. The error message pops up too quickly to read before the game exits.:cry: I am running 3.19 - does this save require a mod of some kind?

    EDIT: Well, looking at your settings it appears you have Lock modified Assets on. :cry:

    That start is ridiculous. It's worth a good 2+ difficulty levels lower! The Oracle gave me currency; Liberalism gave me...

    Railroads.

    Spoiler :
    Four gold + corn + floodplains + horse in BFC. Stone close nearby means early great wall and stonehenge. Fast workers. Organized + financial + the gold means that you can rex as hard as you want and still be a money factory. For some reason, all the AIs basically stay in the stone age forever (not enough land? they don't war all that much..). I was seeing spearman and archers with some longbowmen when I had infantry.
