    The new land mass is starting to get cities connected. Once this is done we can strip the interior city guards. One mobile group of around 10 should be more then enough to cover it.

    Summary:
    I intentionally did NOT build Military Academy. I am saving it for a rush on the new land mass. That will give us a barracks for that area until such time that we have commie available for barracks again. We are in the ugly part of monarchy without barracks. I can't wait until JJ posts we have the military academy.

    There is a stack of ships starting to build by Chicago. There is a lot of AI ship activity further north. That is where I lost several ships. We need to build an armada before heading north.

    The AI has been bombarding a lot of our coastal tiles. The rail-net needs to be non-coastal as much as possible.

    I'm peeling off some steamrollers in our way too much population home land mass cities. Most of the rushed ones were the conquered land mass with junk cities. The home land mass still needs a lot of them.

    I got it.

    I think we should beeline to Communism, and then on to Electricity so we can plant trees when we are done constructing the orient express.

    I forgot to mention this in the summary:

    Another reason I want the Military Academy on the new land mass is for upgrades. We still have older, veteran troops for ground and mounted.

    We need to save a chunk of the remaining cash for upgrades. We also have ship upgrades to do for our frigates. The escorts for the troops to Poland are on the light side. As need frigates arrive in the area they need to be upgraded.

    Mid Set teaser:

    I think I have all the cities on land mass that had the Aussies, China, etc. connected to a thin rail net and I am shipping some of the railing teams over to "our" land mass. I am also considering sending a few combat railing teams over to Hello Poland.

    The second Polish city I captured is providing us with Gems. Also I got a Great Leader when capturing it.

    Time to strip all the interior cities of units. Find all the fast units, and get into one stack. If more then 10, ship the rest home.

    :dance:
    Now we just need a thin rail-net back to Hello Poland.

    Sounds like we are back to long turns. That last bit when I dropped on Poland were time sucks.

    We are a few turns away from entering the Industrial Age.

    In the past CCM2 games we learned Scientific Method and timed the completed of the Arms Race Great Wonder to coincide with our learning Improved Steam Engines and took Electricity and Atomic Theory with the free picks.

    For this game since we are not the tech leaders, I think we should time the completed of the Arms Race Great Wonder to coincide with our learning Scientific Method. We then pick Nationalism and The Corporation and begin study of Communism.

    To do this we would need to start the pre-build on the turn before we learn Immperialism and begin study of Scientific Method.

    What do you think of this idea?

    PS. Thin rail net is almost finished on our Land Mass. We can go coast to coast but still need to connect some cities (mostly inland). I am send most railing teams to former Poland so we can get troops to the frount quicker.

    I am fine with any two techs from Arms Race. Tech parity would help a lot. We seem to be holding for 4-turn research. However, we've never been able to catch the leaders.

    I don't know about most of the railing teams to Poland. I do agree with a chunk. However, I want to make sure we are getting our core cities having every mountain and hill railed. Get plains heavy cities railed to convert more squares to mines. Are we stripping occasional steamrollers from our core cities with way to much population?
