    I got the same thing when I got the new save. You have to update your edition of InfoAddict (I had v13 when I played).

    Hoo boy...CiV SG games don't appear to have much of a future ahead do they?

    For the sake of SG's everywhere, we must press on!

    Current order:

    Panth-Up Next
    Chimera-On Deck
    Grandad
    Cripp
    Sparthage-Just played

    In the interests of keeping this moving...Panth you have 48 hours from the time of Sparthage's post to claim the next turnset.

    I have no idea what version I'm running. Will check it out and get it played today ;)

    What were we even doing? :crazyeye: Meh, I'll figure it out :lol:

    Edit:
    Ok, i updated to v 14 of infoaddict (that's what the browser had) and am looking at the save now.

    I don't understand what the plan is here.
    -We have 7 units by damascus/mecca/bagdhad . . .were we planning to take that? If so I don't think that's nearly enough at this stage.
    -We have a settler + escorts out in the ocean. I have no idea why we have a settler or where he's going.
    -Are we shooting for space I assume? We don't have nearly the troops for dom at this point.

    I'll wait until later to play so people can chime in if they'd like.

    -if our plan is to go after Mecca and yes we would need more units.
    -the settler/escort is going to the empty land, down south of the English. I'm not exactly sure which spot, because I'm not looking at the save at the moment
    -I think we were going for a science win (which is actually going out the whole tech tree), which we are ahead in that area.

    I would say build a couple more settlers to start settling out England's landmass. I would wait for the others to see if were going to go after Damascus

    I didn't have the right version of InfoAddict but not I do and can open it.

    I would say that settle the fish site but I'm against settling any more cities so I'd go as far as disbanding the settler..... The SP costs and the happy hit just aren't worth it IMO.

    Its a shame that Stealth bombers are on the lower path and not on route to spaceship parts.

    Dehli needs some sci specs assigned or we're wasting NC potential.

    Vijay maybe a factory?

    If we want to war arabia we neeed lots more units. We need to guard our southern puppet cities as we strike for Mecca.

    If we're going for space then we hould maybe go for Rocketry (Radio, Radar, Rocketry) . Alternatively going for Telegraph and the Cristo Redentor would work nicely.

    Cristo would help us go down the left side of Rationalism (I really wish we hadn't gone for Constitution).

    Theres a horseman in Vijay that can be upgraded.

    Did I say I oppose settling more cities? Yes? Can I say it again?

    Well we don't have to go space.

    Maybe we should have a vote?

    I don't understand the point of settling another city at this point either, which is why I brought it up. Is there something to be gained by doing it? We're sitting at 1:) and low policy-gain culture rate as it is. Unless we want a foothold city to buy troops on the other continent, I really don't see what we gain.

    As far as the direction of the game in general, yes we have a whole lot of territory and have conquered pretty successfully so far, but we don't have nearly the troops to continue on that path right now without risking heavy losses of our puppets.

    I didn't check our SP but looking at our culture flow I'd guess we're a long way off from a culture win.

    If we're going for space, chilling out and building would probably be the plan I'd guess.

    Or . . I believe we have a lot of CSs in our pocket - could head towards the UN vote and win that way.

    Whichever way we go, we're going to need to start focusing on an actual plan here. We'll either need to be buying troops, or buying CSs, or . .buying buildings?

    Well I'm against a UN as I find it a bit of a cop out win :lol:

    I'd vote space as this doesn't preclude more war if we want to spice things up. The war would be with Arabia IMO.

    We can hard build units in our production cities (Vijay and Pata) whilst our other cities can crank sci and gold. I don't see why we need to stop giving gold to CSs as they are important to us regardless of victory conditions.

    I would suggest bringing our troops home for now and consolidating the economy. An increase in :) wouldn't hurt either.

    So we're going for space. Excellent. I'm still in favor of warring against Arabia.

    Yeah. So long as we don't have too much fun in war we should be fine.

    Panth, are you playing that set soon?

    It's Panth, me, grandad, cripp, and then Sparthage. I really don't have time to play it until this evening (i.e. in about 7 hours).

    Panth I'll give you until then. If nothing has happened I'll play it.

    PreTurn (245)

    Vijay > theatre (we are at +1:) and have cities set to grow soon)
    Settler can't be dibanded yet
    Start routing all our troops hanging at Genoa down to spread amongst the former russian puppets just in case arabia decided to pull something.
    Tech; Radio
    Set scientists up all around, put the unemployed in Vara back to doing something useful

    Note: we are now somehow at +3:) not sure why but fantastic

    IBT : A very hostile Liz comes complaining about our troops amassed on her border and are we declaring? I assure her it was a mistake. (this is the settler and convoy of escorts)

    246
    Settler disbanded, escort firgates dispersed in what would be our Pacific ocean to serve as watch. One sent to park south of Hanoi to block that path.
    Worker stuff, roads, etc. I notice we have have 1 fish and 1 pearls off the coast of Grand River with no boats so i'll buy boats to work those.

    247
    Meh, shuffling workers and troops. Working on getting some of these aluminum mined which currently have TPs.
    Oh yeah, we've gotten 2 troops now from CSs

    248
    . . .

    249
    Delhi > Statue of Liberty (get some hammer outta those scientists), Pata > Circus Max (we're back to 0 :) )
    Throw 500g to Dublin for another ally
    oh and



    250
    Burn general for a golden age

    251
    Grand River is starving, might farm a couple of these tps.
    Arabia has several troops (some injured) wandering around Rostov on our soil.This concerns me.
    Vijay theatre > school

    252
    . . .

    253

    Vara bank >school
    Tech radio>radar

    IBT
    Arabia denounces us. No idea why but saw it coming. He has troops crawling all over our turf down there around former russia. Most of our troops are now there as well as I had been moving them around. I expect this to get ugly before too long

    254

    Throw some cash at Sidon, Lhasa, and Almaty to keep them well in the blue.

    255

    Great Merchant born, Circus Maximums complete, trade with Mongolia done and I'll leave it there for the next guy


    Overall, not a lot going on. I do NOT like the fact that Arabia is extremely bent out of shape AND swarming our land with their troops.

    Generally I was using our workers to mine aluminum, hook up roads to our CS's and between our cities. Moving units around is taking for-freaking-ever.
