760 continued-I've checked with some of my citizens, and they've only told me that they feel unhappy, because of overcrowding (and some "oppression" in some spots). So, I guess I don't have any war weariness from Babylon, I just don't have any war happiness anymore. I had started mining tiles a few turns back in some spots. Even with maximum corruption, you can get a 2nd shield in some cities: I have 4406 tiles under my control at the end of this turn. 770 AD-Hittites and Russia sign a peace treaty. The Byzantines and Babylon sign a trade embargo against me! Gah! At the beginning of this turn I have 4410 tiles under my control, and a score of 12,503. I get the Hittites to declare war on me, but I forgot to gift them their prison first! That might not matter though. From Babylon I take control of Adab and Telloh. I then make peace with Babylon, picking up some 482 gold in the deal, but no gpt. From the Hittites, I take control of Malayta, which has two rifles and a spear as its defense. I also take control of Kadesh which gives me an incense source. I also take control of Hattusha and Emar. I have 4473 tiles at the end of this turn, 46 tiles under the domination limit with a few more coming via a cultural pop. 780 AD-I have 4483 tiles under my control at the start of this turn, and a score of 12,867. I spawn two more MGLs. From the Hittites I take control of Adana, Hubishna, Karatepe, and Tarsus. I also flat our raze Ugarit, as it has too many units on mountains near it. I've decided I'll sit 16 tiles under the domination limit this turn (I have no cultural expansions coming this turn, though I do the next), instead of trying to chance something closer to it. I've also started throwing native settlers into cities on the Greek/Babylonian island to keep unit support down, and as I can now tell I have more than enough settlers sitting around. I have 549 workers. Addendum: If you look through the other Huge histographic games at all levels, you can see that anything over 4400 tiles comes as high. So, for anyone doing this I recommend that you try and play with a map with 4500 tiles. Why? That way you can have a large tile buffer... heck even a 100 tile buffer when building temples/libraries and waiting on cultural expansions, and you'll still feel like you're getting a good score from the tiles you have. Once you have all cultural expansions taken care of, sell off *all* culture (don't worry about research) THEN sit very, very close to the domination limit via founding cities with settlers. Double-check that you won't trip the domination limit after founding new cities. Also, you might want to put that culture in as soon as you can, so you can sit close to the domination limit longer without fear of accidently tripping it.
