The solution to this is simple: by this point, I usually have all but 1-2 workers on auto build, because I'll be buggered if I'm gonna manually point them all the land I stol.......EARNED. Works on auto will automatically upgrade all roads to railroads after they're finished on their current task, so you can just set 5 of them on auto build and chain gang across your empire! Back on topic, another problem that happens to me a lot is my neighbors starting with the same luxes as me..... this means that I can't swap with them, and then they trade them off the the OTHER AI's, making me unable to swap with them too. Look, I think 3 luxes for your last copy of a lux is a good deal..... oh so what do you want.....ALL MY LUXES, RESOURCES, AND THE PIN TO MY SWISS BANK ACCOUNT?!
