Couldn't help myself, played on this approach to T90 (an extra turn compared to the T89 we used past), because I could not build the academy until T90.) I think I learnt some lessons that I want to share. Spoiler : 142 BPT is way better than my previous try, 4 cities running 2 rep-scientists is really nice. GLIB is already done and national epic is well underway. Some differances: 1.) I didn't pay overly much attention to failgold, just barely enough to keep techrate up. (ToAR went, which was the most convenient one in previous tries). 2.) Fourth city down by the river, much better than west of capital as it could borrow the sheep. 3.) First GPerson from a city other than capital, 100% chance of scientists, and the GPP don't get locked in. (Capital takes of after national epic + GLib, so basically no other city has any use for it's GPP after that. 4.) Complete neglect of cottages, I start to think rep scientists win so decisively that they are basically just a distraction. (Now for example, a city 3E1S of capital is very much thinkable, and it could whip or build a library too in a timely manner. Probably the location of Tours is suboptimal, the city 3E1S of capital would probably have been better. Curious to play out this until optics now.
