Had a huge area....playing Chieftain still. Made some mistakes, but I'm re-learning, so it's all good. But, cannot build the last piece to the ship....exterior casing.....says I need aluminum AND rubber. My huge land area has no rubber. Again maybe just because it's been so long I don't recall.....know in Civ 4 and 5, strategic resources were more plentiful.... but each strategic resource that I discovered through tech, I would only get 1 in my whole civ area. And, I didn't get any rubber. Am I correct in assuming I'm screwed and have to retire this game? There is rubber near my border....so I tried to war but it's in a region where I have to war with two civs, and the Russians threw about 20 Cossacks at me and razed my city! Was thinking I might take a few cities easy, control rubber and win....but no so fast my friend. Anyhow....what's the deal with the dearth of strategic resources? I got one Iron, one Horse, one of every resource I think, with like 20+ cities. If this is the case and you need these resources to build the spaceship, how on earth could you win with a smaller area, when I didn't get rubber in a huge area?
