    Ah, it's Chamnix and his workers. :D

    But you are right. It might be a good choice.

    I still vote for a Settler first.

    Unless we can free up our 1 worker to work the 2nd city, I'd rather build a 2nd worker before a 2nd settler, but it kind of depends on what is out there, of course.

    I'm kind of putting the idea out there that we can have less units early on to allow for faster research. There are better build orders i would believe.

    :) That seems way too deep for me, Eclipse. I walk at a very slow pace today. Sorry.

    I believe the plan is to build 2 Workers and a Settler. Then perhaps another Settler (if we're lucky). Sound good?

    Yea sure, I'm just trying to get any benifit I can from the exerience, I was hoping someone would tear my build order apart for good reasons. I assumed there would eventually be a great deal of depth here.

    Wait, why would it be if we are lucky to get a third settler up? Is the map that tiny or are we taling about warrior rushes?

    I would be happy to do that later, Eclipse, but I've been pretty sick for two ays. Hopefully things will clear up tomorrow.

    See? I got it wrong. :blush:
    We'll build a Worker, so we'll have 2 Workers.
    Then we'll build 2 Settlers. City 2 can build some Workers, city 3 can build some units.
    I believe that's what's penciled in now.

    ok good
    Bad sick during the holidays sucks i hope you feel better soon

    Ok thanks for the details, (I do know thing can change, we haven't seen much of the map and factors there would change what you'd build)

    This is totally unrelated to ISDG but there are many people here.

    I believe I have an interesting idea for a civ3 scenario, I have not seen done here, it is not a major project but I think it is so unique that players waiting on pbem turns would load it to pass the time.

    I have the fundamentals, I just need ideas based on it. If you are fealing creative PM me I'll give you details.

    You know Eclipse. Putting a list here, (which I have problems to understand), without reasoning is not what I understand as some planning. And hoping that someone else makes something meaningful out of it does not really help anybody.

    Sorry, but that is what I think.

    If you followed the turn planning thread you could add your thoughts there.
