Hello guys, here is another part of the photojournal. Continues from the last part, Im still trying to get my settler out and my cities up ASAP. The sooner my cites is settled the sooner I get benefit from them. China is currently the Tech and Culture leader (not too surprise). Im almost last in everything, just higher than one unmet civ, almost everyone have advanced to classical while im still in Ancien Era. Im about 7 techs behind and 3 policies behind compare to China, but its ok. Good thing is China is not my directly neighbour. Spoiler Agra found : Agra is founded and I buy those flood plain immediately. Farms on flood plain are very good for India, they give tons of food and an extra hammer thanks to the UB. Spoiler Calcutta : I use the settler in Mumbai to settle Calcutta. With these cities, Ive secured my land from AI expansion, so I can delay my last 2 settlers a bit to build a barrack in Delhi and Mumbai. With Goddess of protection, barrack give very good yield, 1 Science, 2 Faith and 1 Culture. Im in negative happiness now but Its ok. Build order in all of my cities are: Monument, Shrine, Walls/Barrack/Well. Spoiler Someone is pissed : Haha I wonder why . Spoiler Polynessia being serious : Okay I know what it means. I buy a chariot archer In Agra. Spoiler Pissed neighbour : A little unexpected, I dont think Korea would declare war on the same turn. Its getting interesting. Spoiler I still have friend : Its really handy, I can sell my resources for flat gold when in need. Spoiler A tip for denfending : As you can see, the terrain plays a big part in my defensive ability. The red line is where enemies troops have their movement hindered, while the blue line is where I willl deploy my archers and chariots, skirmishers to shot down any invader. No more than 1 unit can touch my city in one turn. Another tip for defending is BE MERCY, DONT KILL the enemies. I just learnt that fact recently and it works like a charm. Difficult terrain mean the enemy will have a hard time retreat wounded troops and send in fresh ones. So you have time to heal up, and it also prevent war weariness to go up. Kill them if you plan a counter attack. If not, dont kill. I can hold 2 fronts with only one archer and one chariot each. My city still building settler, after that Im gonna spam workers. I build worker because I have discount in hammer to make them, and buy units to defend with gold. Spoiler Lahore : Lahore founded, I spend gold to buy the wonder immediately. I can only upload 10 pictures in one post, so I will make a stop here. Hope you guys enjoy it. I will update later.
