i may be the last one to try Rhye's and Fall of Civilization. Recently downloaded and added the 'most recent' version of RFC for BTS. And tried the Rome version to be in something that looked familiar. And going for the conditions for the UHV win, ran into troubles right away. Found some advice that seems to apply to the original version of RFC but does not match the current scenario. Winning against Carthage with the starting praetorians seems to be a matter of luck. Losing 2 of the 4 seems to be typical which leaves me handicapped for any next steps. I think I can take out either the greeks or the carthaginians but not both. Also ther seems to be a finance issue that decides to penalize me for supporting units and suddenly I am getting -80 or -120 per turn on coins. Which means I quickly go broke and it starts deleting units for me that I can't afford to lose. I have to settle more cities sooner? Or capture?
