Nope, sadly I actually cleaned out my save games folder last night because I only gave the Windows Partition a minimum amount and have to preserve space. Next time I play a SV (2020 maybe ) I'll hang on to some saves so you can look at them. So the answer to how people get to Plastics earlier is that they built more cities? I guess that allows for more food caravans to the capital as well. But it does increase the cost of things like Oxford, which I built in one turn. Ah well, SV is not my forte, perhaps I'll work on it again in the future.
