    Sorry all, need to move the session to Friday evening to avoid a last-minute schedule conflict (play civ, or take a young lady out for the day - not a tough call).

    Use the slider in preference to specialists, maintaining the minimum necessary to prevent rioting, if only recently captured cities will riot, consider using specialists in that city rather than losing a lot of gpt to prevent minor cities rioting


    General: Keep science high to achieve the techs in the minimum number of turns without defecit spending. A temporary small negative gpt is allowed as long as we have sufficient funds. Always check over the last few turns and reduce the science rate if it is possible to do so and still get the tech in the same time.

    In case of emergency it is allowable to reduce science slightly to gain some additional gold necessary.
    Do not let our treasury run dry!

    Treasury Spending:
    Prioritise the 192 gold for a temple rush in Istakhr.
    If there is enough gold to still leave us with a reserve of approx 150-200 gold, Istakhr should also be given priority to rush a Library if required after there are some shields in the box.

    After allowing for the priorities above, any other spending should allow us to keep a cushion of approx 150-200 gold to be used in emergencies.

    We want to build ToE and Hoover, but it is currently too early to do so as our prebuilds will run out before we research the techs. The DP should reassess the situation suitable cities have built factories.

    Great Leaders:
    Next Military Leader: If early into the session rush Battlefield Medicine as first choice in a city that can be quickly switched with no shields in the box and preferrably one of the outlying cities that need culture. After that if there’s an obvious choice from the discussion thread please take it, otherwise please stop

    Scientific Leader: Depending on what Wonders are available, grab (in order of priority) Smith's, Bach's or Shakespeare's. Smith's or Bach's should be built in a city that can be quickly switched with no shields in the box and preferrably one of the outlying cities that need culture. Shakespeare's should be built in a very high food city that will get much larger than the others. Please do not waste shields, by rushing in a city with lots of shields stored.

    Please use non-German slaves to build the following colonies:
    A colony on the Silks by Rome
    Another colony (on turn 0) on the Incense that will not be claimed by the French.
    A colony on the Gems

    There are several large stacks of Workers (12 slaves or equivalent) that can build a section of rail on flat land in one turn. Preferably rail in 1 turn rather than eg: split the stacks and rail 2 tiles in 2 turns. It is more efficient and allows the Workers to be moved after 1 turn if they are threatened without wasting their efforts.

    Preferably use the workers in stacks that multiply to the equivalent of 12 slaves eg: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12. A native is equivalent to 2 slaves. There are a few stacks of eg: 7 slaves in which case the extra slave is completely wasted, such stacks need to be split/joined so as to prevent the waste – the odd workers could be used for the colonies or blockading.

    The Minister of Defence is able to use the Workers to prevent settling/blockade duty, the DP should balance this requirement against the railing that is required. The DP should also use Slaves rather than native Workers for blockade duty and have the workers roading/railing or do something rather than just fortify whilst they are blockading. Do not put the workers where they could be captured, use troops for those positions.

    Try and complete governor worker instructions if requested and safe to do.

    Road/rail the Saltpetre by Rome when it is safe to do so.

    Keep our Workers safe, but that shouldn’t mean hiding in cities!

    ravensfire, you dog! ;)

    Thank you Furiey for the heads up. With industrialization coming to be, a factory would be of great importance. Please start one up/switch from current build queue upon industrialization's discovery. Until then please continuing building what's being built.

    Worker actions:
    Priorities: railroad hills and grasses and coal mountain, irrigate and railroad deserts, mine and railroad mountains

    turn 0: rush temple for 192g

    The micromanagement may be altered based on worker actions.

    I may not have time to post proper instructions.

    Policy - Let Olympus grow. Build Hospital and Factory. Then build units.

    Summary - Due to DP brain spasm, most of the TC was spent chasing around french settlers, laughing at the English and finally(!) getting things set for the invasion of Persia.

    TB - I'm pretty darn sure that I (once again) screwed up your planning. The cities are in good shape, but I Ishtakr is probably smaller than it should be. Sorry :(

    All core cities have Factories, and we're in GREAT shape for trying for several wonders.

    And again, sorry for the last minute schedule change - I hope I didn't inconvienence anyone too bad.

    That's okay; most DPs have missed some micromanagement (I can't remember messing up my own, but messing up my planning occasionally makes up for that). That's what I get for detailed instructions (in addition to better cities ;) ).
    Edit: We got some workers, looks more like the other plan I was considering.

    Dang, only looked at the thread title. :(

    Maybe when a mod comes across one of those changes, the thread title could be edited as a public service? (pokes Rik who could have changed it before the chat :rolleyes: )
