    Holy crud, I hear it comi....

    ...ack [gurgle]


    I AM ROBOT. I WILL DISGUISE MY ROBOT BODY AS CATHERINE. I WILL MAKE ROBOTS. I WILL USE RUSSIAN DOUBLE URANIUM. I WILL CONQUER ALL WITH MY ROBOT ARMY. :scan:

    THIS WILL HAPPEN TOMORROW. WHEN KIND MAN GIVES ME BOX WITH PEWTER ROBOT AND DISCS OF AWESOME CIVILIZATION POWER. HE WILL BE SPARED IN THE UPCOMING ROBOT APOCALYPSE.

    I AM HERE TO TELL MY STORY TO YOU AND TO CONSULT ON THE MOST AWESOME WAY TO CRUSH THE PUNY HUMANS.

    QUESTIONS ARE AS FOLLOWS

    [][][][][]question asking sub-processor initialized[][][][][]

    1. What is the best map size for a reasonable length domination game that can extend long enough into the future for robots to come into play? I'm thinking large?
    2. The goal here is to keep a significant tech advantage so I don't lose to a space race, but not significant enough to just be trampling ancient units. I'm thinking warlord difficulty?
    3. What's best to do in the first few turns?

    [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][]





    ANSWER QUESTIONS AND/OR DIE. :scan:

    I'm curious how you will "rush" to one of the last techs in the game. :D

    Did you decide on the difficulty level yet? If you start with settler, I'm sure you will get some GDR more sooner than later. ;)

    Me too,

    Settler is too easy, I could be convinced to do Chieftain. I'm planning Warlord though.

    You can rename cities. When in the city screen, under the name, there's an edit button. Have fun.

    GDR? The German Democratic Republic?... Oh! Giant death robots. Very well, then. I wish you the best of luck in crushing the fleshbags of this world with your cold, metallic fist/rockets.
