    :confused: Are you sure Scientists don't rush Astronomy? I know for certain that they do in Warlords; not so sure if they changed it though, so it could be different in Civ4 vanilla I guess.

    Sorry, yes they do but Printing Press and Education would have to researched first.

    Ah, OK. So we would have had to not have Paper in order to be able to do the rush of Astronomy, correct?

    Yep
    Sad to hear that they don't want lasting peace.

    One hell of a bump...

    Shall we contact Epsilon with a peace offer, saying we'll vote for them/do what they want?

    Finishing Radio and researching Mass Media will take 16 turns at current rates and with the GA. Building the UN will take about 25 or so without an engineer, although we have about a 60% of getting an engineer in Chowderton.

    Even if we sink what we can see right now I would expect to be taking serious damage from Epsilon in 3-4 turns. Basically war with Epsilon wrecks our plans. My main concern is the beat Piffle and hold on to second place so I would be fine with capitulating to Epsilon.

    We can gift them our artist as a sign of submission perhaps.

    draft :

    Feel free to amend this letter.
    I think we should hurry sending it though, preferably before they play the save.

    Chat with General W of the Council (emoticons showing sarcasm in the first couple of lines are sadly missing)

    Fingers crossed then, if they give us a guarantee of peace we can put far more effort into science and with a bit of luck wrap this game up in 15 turns.

    Well, General W is usually much more enthusiastic and peace-minded than the rest of his team in chats, so it wouldn't surprise me if the answer is something like "sorry, for reasons we cannot reveal, the majority of the team has chosen to declare war on you". If they do promise peace, I think we can trust them to keep it, so we can always hope they'll accept.

    No response to my query in the turn report thread so I didn't think anyone would care if I transmitted my proposal to Epsilon.

    I'd hate to just throw the towel and give up the game to them, but I don't mind voting for them as UN secretary so count me as a yes-vote for that idea.
