Incredible! crushing victory, congrats! Thanks for taking the time to write a summary of how it went and for the pics. It's great that you posted your turn 100 since it helps me gain many insights and new ideas, and I love to compare how other people place their cities. I'm sure I'm not the only one. Comparing the turn 100 I noticed that Spoiler : while we are both score leaders, you have both slightly higher score and with better yields on everything, the score differential compared to other AIs seems to be higher in my game (at least temporarily, until the AIs stop existing, haha). I assume my style of play relies (maybe too much) on manipulating AIs and getting a strong endgame, with lesser focus on science and armies which translates into later finishes. I am starting to contemplate on putting higher focus on faster Machinery and Education and the NC, and also faster Artillery, I saw you had many of them.
