    Alright, twist my rubber arm, count me in damnit..this should be fun. I vote for start one, I like the BG...., but I guess it doesn't really matter right?


    I am not a fan of America as a civ....but then again, this is Vanilla isn't it...what patch do I need?

    @WilliamOfOrange: Welcome to the official roster then!!!!!!:D:D I don´t really know which patch it is, but im pretty sure its 1.29.............cody might know

    Alright since WilliamOfOrange is in, i´ll play my fifteen turns. I see that not everybody has posted their pick of starts, but since start 2 has gotten by cody (and he is the most veteran player), i´ll go with it.

    @Little Corporal: It gets worst, turns outs there are jungles covering much of the North and East. :cry: :cry:

    Turnset:

    1) Check out Space Race, oppos are: Aztecs Iroqouois Japan France Germany England. Set down settler, Apazhe tribe gives us Ceremonial B. :D :D Washington is set to warrior, and by working forest it gets done in 2 turns. I see some silks to the NE:D , move worker N, and scout to mts.


    2) BW @ 100%, 9 turns. Worker irrigates (wasn´t really sure what else to do with him:( ). Scout keeps on scoutin´

    3)Warrior done. Washignto buiding second warrior. Scout sees some coast.

    4)Worker starts road.

    5)Second warrior done. Washingto set to settler.

    6)Done w/ road. Warrior sees a hut.ç

    7)More irrgation. Move warrior towards hut. Scout finishes the N side of coast.

    8)Bring scout South. Saxons teach us Mysticism

    9)Warrior following fresh water

    10)WC @ 100%, 8 turns

    11)Washington expands borders, Silk within them:D . Bring down research to 80%, 11 turns. Settler done, move towards BG and Coast in NW. Move worker over to Silks

    12)Warrior spots some dark green borders in NE

    13)I forgot to choose a production for Washingto, so it automatically buil me a third warrior:( :( (Big mistake on my part, hope the next guys can recover lost time), sent to follow settle. Washingto starts barracks, 7 turns. Worker starts Silks road.

    14)Move warrior inside dark green borders. Build New York City, set to worker, no need for warrior, since i have an extra one, 3 turns.

    15)Monty offers us WC for Mysti. Don´t accept, since we are already researching it. Surprised to find out they still only have one city. First Palace expand:D :D , im sure many more are to come


    Pos turn: I really mess up with the third warrior thing, and i dont think i chose a good spot for NY. Oh well, its all in the name of learning:D . Any comments from teammates, and lurking vet. players is extremely welcomed!!!


    Now for some pix, and the save

    my suggesstions about the starts :
    1st : We've a goodyhut which means we can get some tech , map expansion , nothing or gold. we've Gold on the hills , which means we'll have money for researching, but to go for naval city we've to move 1tile north and forget about the river and about the goodyhut.
    don't forget we've 4BG's on our area . I don't like this start since we're far from river and from the Coast . ( we still can move south to the river ) .

    2nd : I like this start , we've river in the spot and we also have Game in our 9tiles. we've a Goodyhut which can be a good advantage ( I said why in the 1st start ) .
    Mountains and 2 BG's , we don't have forest to chop :( but we have jungle :(

    3rd : We've 2 tiles of river , we can settle and have a river and right near us we've an Wheat on plains =| . just one BG, but we've forest to chop and SPICES !
    Okay we will have some extra gold but not so much .

    well , 1st start is nice but we'll have to risk to go south . I don't like 3rd start even it has happiness luxury since we're not playing on Emperor and we can deal with happiness withouth that luxury . 2nd start and 1st , I vote for them both .

    I agree w/ on the reputation thing. Our rep. is sacred, so don´t abuse RoP´s or break alliances often.

    You can declare war whenever you want, just make sure you know what u r doing :D :lol:


    What about research strategies????? What are we aiming at in the Anciet Age????.....I should have asked this question b4 playingmy turnset, but i just remenbered right now:lol:

    I´ve really been thinkin about the whole war thing..........and i think that we should go to war with Monty, and it be best if we do it NOW. The Aztecs only have one city, so i don´t think their military is pretty strong, and Washington will be done with barracks soon, as will WC (so we can escort our warriors w/ a couple of archers:D). By the time we get a decent military force to attack them w/, they´ll probably only have 3-4 cities (at the rate they r building currently), so with a bit of good gaming and luck will defeat them easily. They only have one tech that WE don´t, and it turns out to be the one WE are researching, so I don´t think that we could benefit from their science research in the future if we don´t attack them. The only thing we could possibly gain by trading with them is gold, but even that won´t be too much of a necessity for us, since both of cities are near mountains with gold in them, so we can settle another city and mine them.


    In short: My opinion is that, goodsmell, if u feel u r up to the task, destroy Monty!!!!!!:D:D:D:D:lol::lol:

    www.imageshack.us is an execllent site for uploading screenies .
    I think we can attack them so early , it'll be good only for our side . about the science don't worry , if we'll let them grow without declaring war on them , they'll Largest than we do and they'll reach much Technologies . but anyway it's a good idea to declare war on them ASAP .

    I guess we'll create some dotmap , and I could'nt see where you placed NY because it does'nt included in your uploaded screenies.
    and I still don't understand , if we started with the 2nd Start , why did you upload the screenie with the 1st start again ?

    I didn´t realize that i hand´t taken a pic of "the world as we know it", i was only taking pix of important events, and forgot to add it. So hopefully u´ll add a pic of the location of NY in ur turnset, for those lurking out there :;):

    I agree with the dotmap suggestion, would be really helpful.

    I uploaded the "first start" pic as i was "trying" to learn how to post pix, so it was really nothing important

    EDIT: So r u going to declare war on ur turnset, or shall we wait until next player?????? (choxorn if im not mistaken:D)

    I must add , you should'nt irrigate tiles where it already 2food , in Despotism it won't create 3 food since it drops everything has 3 to 2 . I hope understand my english in this explanation ;)

    and road before you're Mining / Irrigating ...it produce 1 extra gold .
    I guess I will reMine these tiles .
