I think what you do now should depend on what type of victory you're going for. I know, it's very early to pick a victory, but being financial and having most of africa available it seems pretty easy to 1. rex into africa for a huge cottage economy, 2. cat rush hattie to take all of africa. Then with the cottages from your capital area and the production in mid and south africa you'd be very well set up for a space win. If you want a military win you have more options- take hattie asap and either invade europe through the meditrainian or go through the middle east. At the same time you'd be expanding into south africa to support your wars. Get those western cities up asap if you're going to go to war with hattie- otherwise I'd just start rex'ing into middle africa with a ton of workers to chop down the jungle. Easy to backfill those western cities later.
