    The buttons are from Far Horizons (I think).

    Check out the spear on Pyongyang. Is it me or does that look like a wooden horse? It's a spear, I checked. Some kind of easter egg?

    I just see a spear facing left. Doesn't look weird to me.

    I'd like to know how you're making 487gpt with like 20 cities and with metallurgy at only 8 turns.... please?

    Yeah, it looks like a spearman to me too, not sure what you mean about the wooden horse...

    Science at 10%, perhaps?

    Doesn't look odd to me either. Just a very worried spearman. :p

    I've never figured out how the AI can fortify their units looking one way. I've tried to replicate it and have failed.

    I think they're attacked from that direction, and then freeze in that animation.

    That's cool. Sometimes I wish there was a bonus when flank attacking in Civ 3; so that you can align your units to face the enemy so that they won't be flank attacked. It would make the game so much more fun and interesting...probably more addicting, too.

    Yes, it says in the picture 'France - Republic 9,1,0', so that's tax at 90%, science at 10% and lux at 0%. There's probably incoming gold per turn from other civs as well; it's very well possible to run +500 gpt in the medieval age.

    Am I THE only person who can see cows in those "black-white-color-spot" pictures and horse(actually is a spearman, but if you look correctly, you can see a horse) on that picture?

    There is a horse on the pic, just not near the spearman...

    I believe so...I can't picture it no matter how hard I try. It's like looking at the blackest black color in the world and trying to see a picture resloved in it. (Just read this article about a black color that absorbs 99.997% of light that hits it, so its on my mind).

    At first when I looked at the picture it did look like a wooden horse to me too, but now I only see a spearman. It's like an illusional trick. Wouldn't it be cool btw if there was a Trojan horse wonder which you could use to take any one city from another civ?

    Spoiler :

    OK, maybe this isn't such a weird picture, but doesn't it look totally cute with a city completely surrounded by mountains like this?

    Then I have a question. Look at this image:
    Spoiler :

    The nuclear plant can only be built in a city with access to fresh water, right? But how was I able to build in this city? :confused: It's located by the sea, but there's no rivers or lakes nearby. (Oh btw, I was building the solar plant first, but then I discovered nuclear power so I changed the production, so that's why it says solar plant below the city on the map, because the text hadn't been updated yet.)

    If there was a trojan horse wonder, the AI would be too stupid to efficiently use it and there would probably be a RNG thing with that and it would take a totally random inefficient city like maybe one on tundra. However, us with greater intellects may use it to our great advantage by taking "borrowing"a wonder for our own needs...
