Two things jump at me in your screenshot.
1) You've built a lot of roads. In general my advice is to build exactly the roads you need and nothing more
. I haven't roaded capital silver or 2nd city sheep, because roading them doesn't give real benefit right now. You can road them later once the AI has something to trade perhaps. The road south from capital is also a 7T investment and those workerT could probably be used better.
2) You started with a worker in the southern city. In general, don't start with a worker when there are
-tiles around. I'd start with a warrior and grow. Start farming a fp and have the road done exactly when borders pop to get that horse online immediately. It'd be very good to have 2 workers in that area. Why should you not start with a worker? Because it's simply more efficient to 1-pop whip it. Growing to size 2 costs the lenght of the
-bar which is 22. Then that 22
can be transformed into 30
. Perhaps by that time you can put a chop into it, so the worker is a 2T build once you reach size 2, making it a total 9T build. You win the 7
that you've put towards the warrior plus some overflow
These things are relatively minor and will not cause your game to crumble, at all. Just some food for thought for future!
I am faced with the question of what to build in Thebes and Memphis until the horse is connected. The two warriors are just dummies until I make a decision. And the workers could pre-chop perhaps?
Warriors are the best you have now. You could favor even coastal tiles in favor of mines if you are putting too many
into them now. There is a lot to improve in the south - farming (1-2 fps), connecting to Hammurabi, at construction chopping. Pre-chop if you have nothing better.
Honestly, I don't think I'm ready to attack pre-100. But let's see. Probably whip and chop until my fingers bleed. Is it a good idea to build a road to Hammurabi to get supplies faster?
I captured Babylon T95, so it's certainly doable. Not many whips (inefficient due to no granaries). Yes, roading to Hammurabi as fast as you can is important to get the trade routes! Should be extra 3
