Several cities are about to riot, so I adjust them.
Angkor gives up a mountain - still doing 1-turn Infantry
Toshka is building Motorized Settlers, hmm, I think it needs more food if it's going to keep up with that.
Mandalay steals a mountain back from Phnom Penh, who focuses on growth.
Mycenae adjusts citizens for 1-turn growth
I'm not going to bother with an air force. We can build a few fighters when the war with Spain starts (Narrator: We did not).
I'm not going to bother planting many space-filler towns. We can plop a bunch down once we own the continent. For now, worker turns need to be spent elsewhere.
Development plan, focus on getting our "middling" cities (Bien Hoa, etc) up to par.
We sign peace with Japan. They throw 68 gold and their WM into the deal.
We renegotiate peace with Poland, stopping the Coal and gpt deal. Now it's just straight-up peace.
New deals, ONLY with civs on the opposite continent.
Poland gives us 156 gpt for Coal.
Korea gives us 98gpt for Gems, Coffee, Tobacco, Rubber, and Saltpeter.
Russia gives us 49gpt for Coal, Gems, and Camel.
Australia gives us 75gpt for Gems, Horses, and Gold.
China gives us 68gpt for Gems and Horses.
Italy gives us Furs and 5gpt for Hardwood and Elephants.
Arabia gives us 11gpt for Gems.
I cut science to 0.
Spain declares war on us!
Incas declare on Spain
Spain bombards Fort Hephastus which is defended only by a Partisan. This reminds me of the sub bug...
Lowlands declares war on Inca.
We catch Arabia sabotaging Saigon.
We know the Lowlands now. They have 17k gold and seem to be at tech parity with us.
Fort Hephastus renamed to Fort Hephaestus
I dial up Israel and declare war.
I move JJ's dot by 1 tile, giving a path to both Bethlehem and Elath. Artillery heads for Bethlehem with some Infantry.
At Elath, we lose 2 Vickers in the assault.
Nazareth costs us another 2 Vickers
Gaza is a little easier; top defender was a Hussar! However, it has over a dozen units in it, so it keeps the army busy. We lose two Armored Cars in the assault. All told, it took 19 units, and we get 9 workers.
Battle of Kadesh:
Armored Car reveals 6 Pikes and 4 Crossbows.
Our Vickers make short work of them.
We get 11 workers.
We still have a lot of unmoved Vickers, so we offer battle to an Israeli stack N of Asturias. The stack has around 80 soldiers; it's down to 64 units when we run out of Vickers.
We get a Leader in the process! Achilles rushes Super Dreadnoughts in Phnom Penh.
This does inspire me to re-MM our mid-tier cities. I shift most of the cities making 25 to 60 spt from building Railyards and Gas Holders to building Infantry.
Turkey and Maghreb sign MPP
Aztecs and Korea sign peace
Hussar dies to our Armored Car
Treb kills Armored Car
Inca declares war on Israel due to our MPP
Cannon dies to our Infantry near Jerusalem
Hussar destroys a Vickers
Artillery dies to Infantry
Cannon kills Infantry
Funny, I didn't see any movement from Spain. They must be busy for some reason :halo:
Byzantium hit by pollution.
Resistance in Elath ends.
MPP triggers as the Lowlands attacks the Incas. We autodeclare war.
We catch the Dutch planting a spy.
An Early HeavyTank autoproduces. At 12.5.2, it's strictly worse than our Vickers Mark E tanks at 12.5.3
