Hello guys. I am trying to figure out what is the fastest way to obtain 100 food excess in the capital (deity difficulty). So far my best is turn 124 with Aztec. Please post how you think this can be accomplished and recommend a method. What civilization do you think is best for this and why? This is how it can be done in a normal scenario: 1) build Temple of Artemis for the 10% food and growth it gives 2) build granary and floating gardens quickly 3) build Hagia Sophia for the religion (if there isn't an easier way to get a religion) With the religion, take Fertility Rites and Feed the World as beliefs. Swords into plowshares is a questionable belief tot take with Aztec because it conflicts with their UA that needs war to be fully effective while SiP needs peace to be fully effective. 4) complete Tradition Social Policy tree for aqueduct and the food multipliers. 5) send as many Sea routes as possible. (I only had 1) 6) ally as many maritime CS as possible. (I only had 2 ally+1 friend) This tells me that the potential is much higher to get to 100 food fastest since I didn't have space to place cities for more sea routes but still many other things worked well so overall it seems a solid attempt. Share your strategies and tips please.
