    Days have passed since the last T/C. This is kind of short notice on Wednesday night's Game Session.

    It's been real quiet in the forums lately, so I'm thinking that the short notice of the upcoming T/C can be overlooked. If you have a problem with this, please let me know.

    A brief summary of the last 5 turns will appear later.

    Ministers and Mayors may post their Instructions below.

    With Flight coming in next turn, I believe we should start building Airports along our Southern coast. At least 5, maybe 10. We will need fghters to combat the Bomber attacks on these cities. We will also be producing Vet Fighters.

    We will have the Intelligence Agency in 4 turns. Expelling the Greek spy should be one of our top prioriies.

    With the Harbor in Aydin, our cities will get the Ivory Lux, and the Ottoman continent will get Coal, so I'll transport some Workers over there to build Railroads.

    Maeve is now the top city of the world. Another great accomplishment for the Hibernian nation.

    Well, Alex caught our Spy on the first attempt. You know how Alex is. He declared war with us again. That was on the last turn of the T/C, so first turn of our next Game Session will be an interesting one. I think we're prepared for it.

    Will probably play another 5 turns tomorrow.

    I'd say only build a few airports in our core, they can crank the air units out fastest. We can use airfields for overseas transport, when the time comes.

    EDIT: Did the peace with the Greeks destroy our treaty reputation? If we had an alliance against them with anyone at the time, we'll have trouble making new treaties.

    Sounds good, TO. The only reason I was thinking about Airports in remote coastal locations (like Anyang) was to repair fighters quicker. I will double check this thought.

    Not sure if I'll be able to do the second 5 turns now. Possibly in 5 or 6 hours.

    Once we get fighters in the few cities in range of their continental bombers, they will be losing most of their bombers really quick. Airports are pretty pricey in upkeep, so I would build only a few. Shave a few workers off of some low shield cities and make some airfields around those towns getting bombed, put the fighters there rather than in the towns, since an airfield does almost anything an airport can do, and costs only a worker. Bseides, I've never seen a Bomber go for an airfield.

    I've never thought of that - the relative upkeep cost of airpots and airfields that is. Makes airfields more useful than I thought.

    Not sure how many turns I'll get in but I'll crank up the game and do what I can. Airfields it is.

    Ok, I'm not sure what hapened to the Chat Log I posted (not sure I posted the save), but I was under the impression I had posted SOMETHING. The Chat Log is gone. I will now post the save and summary. The T/C was on the 16th and ran well past midnight.

    SUMMARY: Once we finish off the Ottomans, the rest of the world will be Fascists. The Fascist regime of the Greeks will still not talk with us, and they are average to us militarily. For some reason, I forgot to replant a Spy in Greece. I will correct that error next T/C.

    Persia, weak to us, is lacking Motorized Transportation of the Techs we have (besides the top rail of the Industrial Age). They only posess 19 gold. Their nation is next on the invation list, as soon as I tidy up the remains of the Ottomans. We will start in the South and work our way Northeast. I'd kinda like to see both their Gems and Furs on our store shelves, so picking them up as an ally against Greece is up for reconsideration.

    Our bretheren, the Cairde, are annoyed at us again. Probably because they still have no rubber to build their Panzers. Like the Persians, they have the top branch of research of the Industrial Age over us, but seem to have completed all the Techs in that Age plus Ecology. They do not have Computers. They possess 11 gold. The Cairde can cancel our Wine trade route legally at anytime, although we still have 10 turns on the Silks.

    After Rocketry (Aluminum), we will head for Ecology and Synthetic Fibers. Then maybe we should turn back to Miniaturization and Genetics for the Wonders. I believe we should change Maeve to the Seti Project, doubling the 93 Science it now has. I'd also like to switch Molly to Mech Infantry and fill our next Army with MI. And we can continue to use the capured Workers for Airfields. The Greeks have pretty much devastated our Air Force.

    Score-wise, we now have twice as many points as the 2nd place Cairde nation and the 3rd place Greeks. The Hiberian Armed Foces will keep a watchful eye out for more invasions. On the next to last turn of this T/c, the Greeks landed Vet Infantry and Cavalry next to Edrine after we captured it. That threat was eliminated.

    The next T/C will be soon. Date/Time unsure. Any requests?

    Maeve should be the best site for SETI, so go ahead and start it there. If we are after the Internet, we should start a palace prebuild about the time we finish researching Synthetic Fibers. By the way, we should trade for Ecology, MA techs are too expensive to research if you can trade for or steal them.

    Yup, I'd say let Maeve finish the fighter then start SETI, assuming we're the only ones with computers.

    Quite alright, my friend. I know you've been busy. :thumbsup:

    That means we must finish the Ottomans quickly and make the evil Persians pay for this violation.

    Bowsling, we finished off the Ottomans in 1580AD. They are no more! :)

    We are currently regrouping and resupplying for an assault on Persia. Mums the word...

    I've completed another 5 turns off-line. Fairly uneventful Session. The Greeks keep trying to take Ottomanland. They are also building The United Nations, which is going to throw a new wrinkle in the game. itried twice to plant a Spy in Athens, but failed. Tried and failed to plant one in Persia also.

    Still trying to build a respectable Navy and Air Force. 2 MI Armies. SETI in motion.

    Some pics later.

    With planting spies and being at war, you have to wait 4 turns after a failed attempt or the failure rate is 100%.
