    What the hell is tmz?

    edit: googled it... I can totally live without such things :)
    In fact, I wish normal web would ban such sites as well :p

    No screen shot, because the reports don't all appear in the same Mil.Adv. screen. But the "build a <leader's name>" has now spread to all my opponents, the best selection being for Hannibal. His workers are now mostly reported to "build a Hannibal", but there's also a "chop down a Hannibal" and two "preserve Hannibal"s. Should I reinstall ?

    Marvel at the prowess of Dutch engineering.



    And this picture isn't funny, per se, but I've never seen it happen before. Best thing I've ever got from a hut.

    I've discovered that having city ruins in cultural borders is good thing, because of the event that grants beakers.
    So I usually burn some useless city I conquer to have the ruins and once I got awarded (by the aforementioned event) beakers towards Flight tech :)

    I got Astronomy from a hut recently, but I had so many coastal cities that the Colossus becoming obsolete cost me over 900 commerce in total. Genghis Kai's Giant Earth + starting as Goujian of the Baiyue Chinese and taking out Qin's China, Korea, Japan and the Khmer early equals enormous food and commerce production. (About 150 cities before I abandoned it, the map really is Giant)

    Care to express yourself a little bit more?
    You can see the "The villagers have given you the secrets of new Technology!" above the Astronomy tech window. He's researching Education, so he could research Astronomy at this level probably as well.

    I think what Stee meant was that it was a extremely lucky hut, he wasn't implying that the picture was a fake. ( I think thats what the lol is for)

    Yeah, should have been more descriptive there. That was lucky.

    1. Does this mean that barbarians can build galleons and go in ocean squares and circumnavigate!

    2. Can they give you any tech in the game if you see one late in game?

    Astronomy is the latest game tech that a hut will provide.

    here are some screenshots from my first monarch victory:

    the great waste of hammers


    railroads running into wall


    homeland security (hey, the citizens don't seem to mind, and it's still better than no garrison at all!)

    it also looks like he's about to smash the skyscraper with his club (perhaps because he's jealous of his mechanized comrades with their expensive robotic toys) :sad:

    this should explain why i have only 1 warrior garrison on an influential coastal city in the future era! (used paint to show both in one image)

    in my world, russia, USA and arabia are best friends while in reality they had cold war, afghan invasion and iraq war (although it can be argued that afghanistan and iraq were barbs, but nevermind)

    lastly:

    the enemy has been spotted over moscow!

    good day to you all!

    In the movie, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" that was a glowing blue light, this ended up being an alien and he wanted to destroy the earth because it was being put to bad use with all the pollution.

    Great Pics j0anne! Laughed at the American, Russian and Middle Eastern relations!

    I always love seeing horribly impractical Great Wall settings. This one takes the cake so far. Maybe your people needed to shield themselves from those mad cows.
