    @Ali: I had 3 foreign route specials in Rome after making the delivery. I think what happened is that Delhi was still in Monarchy gov't so its arrow total was still quite low: trading was getting carried by Rome arrows, Hides demand+the existence of an AI critical path. So Rome+Véies ended up having more arrows than Rome+Delhi (but not Rome+Babylon since they did have Republic gov't, Véies and Babylon size 8) and it got chosen as a new active route even if the road bonuses were nonexistent. Kinda sucks, but not sure if I could have done anything to prevent whilst Indians were still in Monarchy.

    Interesting log haleewud. You are the only one so far who got a respawn on one of the small islands. In my game I have not built the Marco wonder but by +200s I have conquered two rivals and settled both small islands. For both islands, my first boat carried a warrior and a settler. The warrior went after huts and exploring to make sure there were no respawns and there were not any. The fact that your Indians managed to wipe out 2 other rivals is also quite interesting.

    Final part of my log. As mentioned before, nothing too spectacular. Germans sneak attacked us, but all our allies joined the war and helped to fight them off. I also felt like I could afford to speed things up with Darwin...it turned out, I was right. At some point I stopped to ask for gifts since I did not want to give my allies an excusion to cancel the alliance.

    Hummm, you have lots of pop more than I do at this point, and the more cities doesn't really explain. Did you celebrate your core cities to size 12? How low of a luxury rate could you handle afterwards? At this point you're 6 techs ahead of me and more-or-less even on my (now scuttled) 2nd try.

    I was at 40% lux in republic and 30% in democracy. My science city is above size 20. Very few cities, if any, are above 12 but quite a few are at 12. Both islands are settled with 2 cities in each. Almost every city has a marketplace and most have temples. Most cities have 2-3 trade routes. In fact the main activity in this time period was building trade routes (from 8d8f in +1 to 66d19f in +500).

    So that's what KRC was for? Seems like an odd use of shields unless you have excess vans lying around. (Entirely possible since you were probably more worried about city multiplication instead of doing the landgrab w/farther out cities.) I wonder if it is possible to get a base 29shields SSC (+21 from KRC, so 50 per turn) in a normal game w/o excessive terraforming, especially if said squares are rivered. Pollution tho...

    30% seems a wee bit high for size12's (I assume it will go down after Bach's, and up again after HG expires) Wonder where the true lux rate will end up being.

    Mine was 0%, so I as able to set my science rate super high: however, sometimes I ended up setting it lower than I wanted to, since it would waste beakers in Rome otherwise (the rest of my empire didn't have enough beaker production to trigger a tech by themselves w/o significant van deliveries) This persisted until SETI, when I was finally able to alternate 1tech and 2tech turns.

    In other words, maybe the higher LUX rate won't matter for you, since the extra science would be wasted anyways...

    Since the start I was very concerned about both city multiplication and making sure my rivals do not build more than 1-2 cities each. Having an advanced tribe out of the third hut helped but it was the only one I got in the game and I did not get any nomads at all. However, I did place my cities close together than usual taking maximum advantage of the dateline bug. Thankfully I was successful and no rival built more than one extra city.

    As for King Richard's, it was planned well in advance. In my games, if I can afford the vans and I can do so early enough I build King Richard's in my science city which is always the largest city. It pays off handsomely and the occurrence of pollution is quite infrequent. In this game I happened to have a pile of vans sitting around so it was a no brainer; I built the wonder the turn after discovering Engineering.

    What was not planned in advance was Lighthouse. I got to a point when there were only 1-2 city sites left, there were a decent amount of settlers, I had a trireme, and I had a pile of food vans. I decided then not to wait for Navigation and start the offshore colonization. The lighthouse was immediately built with 4 vans and I set out for the northern island. In retrospect this was the best unplanned decision in the whole game. This allowed me to put off Navigation (and its negative effect on trade bonuses) for many turns: lighthouse was built in -175, Navigation discovered in +560.

    The most unusual characteristic of this game, compared to my typical landing games, is how many food vans I have had piled up at various points in the game. Here it was partially caused by my extra long stay in Monarchy to allow me to get rid of some rivals. While in Monarchy I rarely build any structures and since in this game expansion was limited, after any city could no longer support settlers it would build food vans. Good flow of tribute from rivals was also a big help.

    I typically have, and this game has been no exception, 40% in republic, 30% in democracy before railroad, and 20% after railroad expires Hanging Gardens and before the Cure. Between the expiration of Hanging Gardens and the building of Cure I expect no celebrations. After the Cure is built, in a maxed-out mature empire like this game I can manage celebrations with 20% (plus 3 routes and plenty of infrastructure) but in an expanding empire I go back to 30% to allow my younger cities to grow quickly.

    I have toyed with 10% but quite rarely. Beyond a certain point, however, it is a great idea to build Colosseums (which I rarely build) and reduce the rate on an empire that cannot grow any longer.

    I do not believe I have ever tried 0% because in my landing games my cities are too large to survive on 0%. Even assuming no black heads (which is the case here), you get only 2 content citizens from a temple, 3 from a cathedral (after Theology and Communism), 4 from a colloseum (after electronics), 1 from a court house, 2 from Bach, and 1 from Cure. That is 13 total. Cities larger than that have to rely on specialists. I suppose for cities in low 20s or below this is possible. I got to try it some time.
    In +1000 and before SETI I can get a tech at 40% science.

    Just doublechecked my log: the 1tech and 2tech alternating actually started after SuperHighways in Rome and not after SETI. SETI merely compensated for the loss of the Colossus arrows after Flight.

    Not revealing my landing date quite yet... first part of my final leg. For the sake of comparison I will re-include my status at 1000 AD once again.

    STATUS AT 1000 AD: (Beginning of 151th turn)
    Population: 10.260.000 Cities: 32 Government: Democracy Total advances: 55 (researching Mass Production)
    Gold: 126 T1L0S9 Income/Cost per turn: 102 income, 55 cost. Production: 232MT 0 polluted tiles
    Wonders: Colossus, Marco’s, Cope’s, HG, Isaac Newton’s in SSC Rome. Mikes, JSB, Leo’s in Antium. Pyramids conquered from the Aztecs. MPE also in Rome. Darwin’s in Palmyre. No extra wonders being built although I have plans for SETI as most helpers have libraries already.
    Units: 17 Engineers, 26 Musketeers, 6 Transports, 16 Freight.


    1000 AD CONTINUED: Lugundum dye (d) to Persépolis: 62g. Ur coal (nd) to Rome: 35g. Payouts seem really low, I wonder if this is treated as a normal-sized map instead of a small one. (So no 25% bonuses to trade) Tlateloco spice (d) to TarenteNord: 146g. Encouraging. Brundisium beads (d) to JérusalemNord: 66g. Cumes silk (d) to JérusalemNord: 120g.

    1020 AD: NOTE THE 1020 AD.. God darnit. Now I’m in trouble, anyone who did a faster Early Repu strat will be able to shave so much time by launching well before 1500 AD if they were able to get celebrations+trade earlier (but then lower amount of cities+not guaranteed access to the offshore lands maybe). Mass Production > Conscription. Rome 198 trade arrows. 35 arrows from each trade route to Babylon and Delhi… and that’s with Naples taking up a square in Rome’s radius. Holy moly. Mass Transit rushed in Rome. Rome hides (d) to Delhi: 395g. Rome coal (d) to Nineve: 355g. Lutèce hides (d) to Delhi: 126g. Naples hides (d) to Delhi: 78g. Oh, yeah, forgot about Mass Production zeroing… no it zeroes hides demand, not supply. Cumes hides (d) to Delhi: 78g. Rome gems (d) to SéleucideSud: 620g!!! Beaker box full. T3L0S7.
    Interturn: Babs develop Explosives.

    1040 AD: Conscription > Electronics > Nuclear Fission. Syracuse beads (nd) to Suse: 23g. Ur oil (d) to Véies: 56g. Cumes copper (d) to Rome: 120g. Holy disappointing… guess the colonies are the only way. CaesareaSud gold (d) to Delhi: 384g. Véies gold (d) to Delhi: 208g. Pompéi hides (d) to Delhi: 64g. Tlateloco cloth (nd) to Rome: 61g. Bombay wool (d) to JérusalemNord: 68g. T0L0S10.

    1060 AD: Nuclear Fission > Nuclear Energy. I think I’m good for alternating 2-tech and 1-tech turns. Berlin wine (d) to SéleucideSud: 137g. T2L0S8. Need to get superhighways on the helper cities before resuming hides vans to Delhi. Naples oil (d) to Véies: 52g.

    1080 AD: Nuclear Energy > Laser > Chivalry. Dang. AurelianorumSud silk (d) to Rome: 660g. It’s 200gold base-ish for a nd van then? Huh. Lutèce hides (nd) to NicomédieNord: 28g. Darnit, it got rid of the beads demand… JérusalemNord wine (d) to Naples: 130g. Viroconium oil (d) to Lugnudum: 63g. Ur dye (d) to Pasargades: 60g. NicomédieNord silver (d) to Rome: 535g. DELHI NO LONGER DEMANDS HIDES. Foreal this time. JérusalemNord hides (nd) to Rome: 226g. Palmyre beads (d) to ArxtaxtaSud: 86g. T1L0S9, swap Rome scientists to tax collectors since I still have filled box + enough beakers to get another 2tech turn. 1840techcost, 1940 per turn. T1L0S9.
    Interturn: Persian gov’t overthrown.

    1100 AD: Chivalry > LEADERSHIP NOT AVAILABLE, RECYCLING > Leadership. Holy, 12 WoWs available to be built… but keep in mind not everyone’s going to go for landing, so no green star for me. I seem better geared for blue. (Postgame edit: lolnope) My Military Advisor is telling me to build Crusaders. Yo dude, you know they can ride cars instead of horses? Also why the swords when we have rifles? 3 cities SHs. HippoRegiusNord dye (d) to Syracuse: 174g. That’s… disappointing. TarenteNord silk (d) to Rome: 656g. Lugnudum spice (d) to Brundisium: 112g. Teothuiacan spice (d) To Byzance: 54g. Utique cloth (d) to SéleucideSud: 120g. K, cathedrals seem to have unbugged, they are now contenting 4 citizens as intended. That’s weird. (Postgame edit: Refer to post 15something of this thread.)If I add colosseums, they can celebrate to size 12 and no unrest, but I’m not sure if it’s actually worth so close to the end. Should definitely have sent most of my vans to Rome as nd to get better arrows tho. AurelianorumSud salt (nd) to Rome: 220g. Véies wine (d) to Césaraugusta: 85g. At least Véies is producing 80 beakers now. Ravenne wool (d) to CaesareaSud: 108g. CaesareaSud gems (d) to Delhi: 360g. Beaker box not quite there! Scientists rehired in Rome to keep it safe. Still T1L0S9.

    1120 AD: Leadership > Tactics > Machinery. Now up to 8 SHs. HippoRegiusNord spice (d) to Hispalis: 260 (or 360) gold. SéleucideSud wool (d) to Cumes: 140g. Lugnudum copper (d) to Babylone: 122g. Cumes dye (d) to JérusalemNord: 156g. Last hut of the map popped; 100g. Hispalis cloth (d) to JérusalemNord: 197g. NicomédieNord hides (nd) to Rome: 214g. T6L0S4 for one turn. Need cash to keep rushing vans and SHs.

    1140 AD: Machinery > Miniaturization not available > Mobile Warfare chosen. Flight only on-path tech available, but I don’t want to suffer the loss of beakers yet. Not done rushing SH’s and I need funds and Colossus arrows. Nice to have good tech. Berlin dye (d) to ArtaxtaSud: 192g. ArtaxtaSud silk (d) to Rome: 868g. JérusalemNord oil (d) to Césaraugusta: 175g.

    1160 AD: Mobile Warfare > Miniaturization. Antium gems (d) to SéleucideSud: 396g. Naples dye (d) to CaesareaSud: 194g. Teothuiacan gems (d) to Delhi: 216g. Césaraugusta oil (d) to Brundisium: 168g. ArtaxtaSud wool (d) to Cumes: 195g. I really wonder if I should have went for CfC and celebrated helpers to size12 and colonies to size8 instead of rushing SHs everywhere. Would have needed aqueducts and colosseums, but the trade bonuses are lackluster even with SH’s and I can’t really rely on van science to give me 2 turns per tech. (Also have no spare cash, so it’s gonna take a while to build that ship…) Given the city spacing, I probably should have. But now it’s too late to change strategy. Should have planned that a bit after Demo and started building the necessary infrastructure then.

    1180 AD: Miniaturization > Computers > Flight. Hippo Regius Nord salt (d) to Suse: 92g. Lutèce dye (d) to AurelianorumSud: 182g. NicomédieNord hides (d) to Persépolis: 176g. Brundisium dye (d) To Tlateloco: 128g. AurelianorumSud dye (d) to Palmyre: 70g. Really should dump them in Rome only. Berlin coal (d) To CaesareaSud: 130g. SETI done in Palmyre. Rome coal (d) to Delhi: 490g. CaeasreaSud hides (nd) to Rome: 229g. Bombay hides (nd) to TarenteNord: 63g. Rome could support 9 extra scientists… I really would like to replay this map a few times in my spare time, try other strats. TarenteNord beads (nd) to Rome: 216g. Give all my techs except Mass Production to Indians. Wait nvm, it’s Persépolis that’s still demanding hides. Giving Gandhi the secret to nukes?... T4L0S6. Total science output at 90% SCI: 2600 beakers, tech costs around 1700 a tech.
    Interturn: Persians develop Medicine.

    1200 AD: Colossus is cancelled as Flight > Radio > SETI PROGRAM > Advanced Flight. Tech costs 1944. Producing 3600 beakers at 100% SCI, just shy of 2techaturn from city science alone… Tenochitlan gold (d) to Ravenne: 154g. Both cities had SH’s. Bombay dye (d) to AurelianorumSud: 200g. T4L0S6, out of vans and need to rush some to prepare for the space ship. I can still get 1tech turns fairly easily. If only…
    Interturn: Indian gov’t overthrown.

    How can your infrastructure cost without Adam Smith being so low as 55? (Mine with Adam Smith is 201.) Your average cost is less than 2g per city. Are most of your cities real small?
    Ahhhh I see. Many of your cities are size 5-6 and get pacified by Michelangelo and Bach. I definitely agree that it is too late to change your strategy at this point in the game. The right time is during Republic or at the latest starting with Democracy. But you would have needed more than just aqueducts. Without marketplaces it is very hard to get cities to celebrate beyond size 7. Most coastal cities would have needed a harbor as well.

    I was following Solo's guide pretty scrupulously, with a focus on research speed instead of city pop. Thought about making another push after acquiring Ind, but I thought that being so close to the end, it would delay me too much. So my helper cities stayed size 8 'til the end (80+beakers apiece with SHs and libraries+SETI. Getting good trade routes took a bit longer than you but it happened eventually). Didn't even get to celebrate them post-launch because all my cash was going towards the remaining WoWs.

    I believe I had exactly 8 red heads on a size-8 city (so base D+1 unrest) At this point Temple+Bach+Mikes is exactly enough to pacify everyone. Ultimately had to stick them to size-8 bc I simply did not have enough production to build these trade routes+aqueducts+mkts on top of building the WoW caravans for the SSC.

    Played to +1200 last night. Just discovered Space Flight and fed 11 vans towards Apollo which will be built in +1280. Many of my cities are producing vans and I have a stockpile but no cities have started producing SS parts in anticipation yet.

    Oof! Gonna be close. But it looks like you got me beat by a few turns if your stockpile holds up. GG.

    Apollo was built as planned and the space race started in +1300. My stockpile of vans was in teens by then and got quickly spent on 2 modules and a component or two. Played till +1460 last night. I was hoping to launch before +1500 but looks like +1510 or +1520 is the earliest I can achieve.
