    What you don't have:
    1. A road to the spare iron
    2. A road to some luxirys and some high commerce material (gold)

    What I suggest Lanch a short term war agasint the vikings get FIVE wines then ROAD every where
    Then hold off till you get your panzers then destroy every thing in sight :ar15: :sniper: . Help if you would rail road after you get it

    Roads! More cities! No wonders!

    Why did you not build roads on those irrigated plains? Build roads on every worked tile, and then every tile that anyone will ever work!

    Why are your cities so far apart? I count eight core tiles unused, ever, and many many more that will not be used until the industrial age! Build some to use those tiles!

    The Great Wall is a terrible wonder. In fact, don't build any. A wonder is worth the same as a decent-sized army in shields. Use those shields to build units and kill everyone else.

    Also you're building the Forbiden Palace too close to your capitol. What's with "the Red Sea" anyways? :lol:

    Actually, it's not that he is building it too close to his capitol. It's that he's building it in the wrong direction. :) Close to capitol usually = faster built.

    EDIT: On the turn of the screechot, you should whip the library in Salzburg. The citizen will die next turn of starvation anyway. One whip = 20 shields, just enough to whip the library. :)

    Follow ALL of the above advice and then I'll add some more honey do's.
    Cows! Cows! Do something to the cows!
    More Workers. Get those workers off the mountains and get them working productive tiles. 8 of 13 cities stopped growing means...get even more workers.
    Why are you roading for the Russians? Take their roads.
    Move your military forward. It looks like too many in the back 1-2 at most are needed for MP duty.

    thanks for the input , im somewhat erratic in my micro management but i do have slight excuse my computers in the front room with tv opposite. i have read the articles on the perils of wonder addiction, the cities are far apart so mines and irrigation can support the cities. flawed logic maybe but im sure i read you need some spacing.
    the read sea was trying to use the eraser in paint shop pro in an effort to resize the screenshot(instead of save as jpg) doh ill post another screen shot

    "Some spacing" is probably just 2 or 3 tiles in between the cities. 5/6 is way too much and you are wasting half your territory.

    Giraffman, instead posting the screenshot again, could you zip the saved game and upload that? I'd like to give a go at it and tell you what I did after. I find that practice is better than theory.

    The Lighthouse only saves galleys from the sea. You need to wait until Magnetism/Navigation.

    From your picture, I can see that you still haven't improved your core. You haven't improved much of anything. More more more workers.
