    We capture Rostov and I make peace with Cathy and Hanoi.
    Spoiler :




    At last peace reigns across our land.

    Our DoF with Sully is over and I don't bother to try and renew it.

    So so we have coal?
    Spoiler :




    Well not really. We get the one by Delhi soon but its only 3 units. We could attack Lhasa for their coal but I don't think we need more than 3 units to be honest. We only need factories in Delhi, Pata and Vijay.

    Pata, Windmill > Oxford. This is set to come in after Archaeology so we can use the free tech for SciMeth.

    Good set :)

    We're obviously running this planet in every respect.

    Since I do these things partly to learn, why the swap with Oxford/Sistene? Is there some reason for doing this differently that I'm missing?

    Oh, and Fishville . . .that's flat awesome :D If one were to settle on the wheat they'd get 6 fish, gold, and horses in radius. Why don't I ever find spots like that?

    I swapped to Sistine as I wanted to use Oxford and the free tech it gives us to grab SciMeth. Its just a matter of what I saw as timings really.

    I think thats the most fish I've seen in one spot before. My previous best was 5 fish a 6 iron tile and dyes.

    I played my set BEFORE I saw your post about SciMethod! I grabbed Steam Power. I didn't do a write-up, just pictures of everything.

    Spoiler :









    Elizabeth beat us with 3 turns to go on TM

















    We 2 sources of oil, 1 in the far south by Novgorad and 1 ocean tile to the west of Onodgana

    I didn't mean SciMeth. I actually ment Bio for the oil! Good job you didn't see my post or it could have got very confusing.

    Looks like a solid set.

    Two things though. The coal tile was going to be culture grabbed the turn after you paid for it. Also why Constitution? I was under the impression that earlier in the thread we had decided to go for the right hand path of Freedom (spec improvements) and then hit up Rationalism. Especially as we only have 2 cities with world wonders and one of those is a puppet.

    can I suggest the next GSci is use on replaceable parts so we can have a shot at the SoL (+1 production per spec). Combined with the SP spec boosts such as half food etc we can run specs in a strong way.

    EDIT

    Actually just peeked at the save. Why does Vara need the forge? What it needs is spec buildings. A windmill would be good for the eng spot.

    If we want some free culture then walls followed by the Mughal Fort is a nice use of our UB

    If, as appears to be the case, a war with Arabia is in the offing could we get some units back to the Rostov area as there are quite a Arabian units there and we can't rush buy a defensive force in the puppet cities. I have noticed a Horseman who can by upgraded in Vijay. Also we need to build Theatres to deal with any future war unhappiness. I suggest pulling our troops back from Arabias borders or he will ask if we intend to attack or not. I we say yes we lose the initiative and if we say no we get a massive diplo negative when we do DoW. Ok last point could be worse but no point in pissing England off more than we have to ATM.

    with the coal tile I didn't notice that it was going to pop, I need to pay more attention on that. It was only 70:c5gold: I must have missed the post on which civic that we were going for, will have another policy in 15 turns

    :agree:



    yes it does, there is also a coal on the CS tile in the middle but I can't figure out how to get them to mine it, right now it has a form on the title. we need one city to start pumping out settlers because there is a lot of land south of England not to mention an empty barbarian camp which would net us about 25:c5gold:

    I have been so out of this....:crazyeye:

    At any rate, exams are over :woohoo:

    I should be ready to take my turn when it comes, provided that's not before Monday. I'll be traveling from today to Monday. I should be able to be following along during the trip but I won't have access to CiV.

    Sparthage said he was playing...but nothing has happened.

    As more or less the GM of this, Sparthage you have 24 hours to post your turnset. Otherwise the turn will flip to Panth.

    I can't open the save. Its telling me that "Not all required mods are installed".

    I don't think I can really comment on the game till I can open a save.
