    This thread is for disussing our settling plan.



    Next city location: Not decided.


    I think we should settle 1NW of the tobbaco, and following that, settle on the spices.

    As we continue our exploration and settling, I will try to update this post, so that it is accurate, if you feel it needs updating, feel free to give me a PM.

    Later we will need a dot map, but I don't think we need one now.

    I think the next city should go to there where exploring worker is standing now. Two floodplains and river equals +5 food per turn, that would make primary worker factory.

    Plus, where the worker is now is only three road moves from the capital.

    My only problem with there is that it looks like the city would be 2 tiles away from the coast.

    If we built where the worker is now, as shown, we could still squeeze in city 2SE of there and still be on the coast and this side of the river.

    Do we know what size the world is (and thus have an idea of how close our neighbours might be)?

    It appears to be standard size.

    I don't like have coast in a city radius if the city is not on the water because the coast will never produce 2 food, so it is wasted, and in a tighter build, we may be forced to work those tiles.

    I think we should settle near the two rivers east and west of us. We could comfortably get at least 4 cities and with a little cramping probably quite a few more.

    We will have settler ready in one turn. I like the red spot, corruption is very low and we can set a worker factory there. If it's too close to coastal cities we later would settle, we could abandon it that time.

    I like that spot Kuningas. However I also think we should build a warrior soon. Well need some kind of defense for our two cities and we need to start exploring.

    Looks like a good short term spot.

    @Vikingruler. We would have built two EWs by the time when turn 26 comes in. As you are miliytary guy what direction you would like to explore or leave them for city defence?

    How about one space East so we are on the coast?

    How about one spot SE, then? That spot would be coastal *and* close enough to the FP to use it...and we'll get alpha eventually.

    No, it would be to far. Alternatively we might consider buildinbg on the hills with a river to the West, but we don't see much here so overalkl I'de say that Kuningas's plan is the least risky/best overall.

    If we settle our second city on the dot in the screen shot, which seems to be the best spot I would like to go in a circular exploration plan. With the two EWs one would go SW and uncover say 10 or 15 tiles then work his way back up north in a semi circle. The other EW would go north for 10 or 15 tiles as well and then go west, completing the circle. This way we will have uncovered a lot of land in our proximity. We will have found numerous city sites and have a nice sphere of vision to see any foreign units that enter it. (I will make a thread with a map today or tomorrow so this plan makes more sense)

    The latest screenshot. Dotmap is required.

    I would settle either where the northern EW is now or 1S of the iron. In the future the site 1NE of the cow will be a great city.
