Hi all and welcome. I did a big test recently to show why city maintenances need to be kicked up a bunch of notches, that and also increasing teh MaxNumCity values drastically. So, my test is using vanilla SVN version 7772, no changes at all, *sobs* and doing Play Now so only the standard default options set in C2C. This did show me that a bunch of options I thougth were standard are not actually standard, and some I thought were not standard showed to be standard. This also threw my test off a bit but my main point is still valid anyway. Standard size map, Random leader, eh, options as per sceenie1, ended up playing Shaka of the Zulu.
