    Here is my crusader empire, carved out of Fatimid and Seljuk territories. :D

    Does the mod take place in the crusading era or are you an European nation?

    I am the Kingdom of Jerusalem. In the scenario you start with only four cities, the rest is conquered. :)

    edit: for the record those cities are Jaffa, Jerusalem, Nablus and Tiberias.

    ^^ Looks good. :thumbsup:

    Permit me a couple of suggestions (you might already be doing these things):
    - Start a pre-build for Hoover Dam before the ToE completes (must be in city with river in radius). I'm assuming you'll be grabbing Electronics with the ToE.
    - Use all that cash to rush stuff, particularly the core improvements

    Best wishes on the first Emp try!

    A Revolutionary: WHERE'S THE RAILS???!!?! :crazyeye:

    You're researching Refining and no rails yet? I'm assuming you just recently got coal.

    If only! You can see coal in his homeland! Aye aye, that has to hurt his production!

    I don't know.
    I play Large maps with everything else set at random.
    Is there a way I can find out ?

    CAII will probably tell...

    This game is using Quintillus' map. I am the Greeks and started out in France. I got bottled up pretty quickly, but luckily I bashed in the skulls of the Byzantines and Egyptians. Carthage has been my ally through most of this, despite the fact that they had only 2 cities (now up to 4, one of them given to them, by me). I am also supplying them with Iron and Horses. :/ I plan to keep them mired in my wars while I expand, and then take them out later when I can spare the troops.

    I had a fierce, long battle with the Dutch for control of the Mediterranean. They fought hard, throwing many swords at me, but I managed to gut their right side. I am now fighting the Iroquois, and have a massive stack headed towards London on the western coast of Africa, bypassing all their other cities, in hopes of grabbing the dyes that they guard.

    Unit support is killer, even in Monarchy.

    There was no coal in my homeland, so I am late getting rails. If you look at the southern end of the green island to my north, those three cities are my only source of coal. Ansar is correct that I recently acquired coal. Theryman, can you tell me where you see this coal, because I don't see it?

    I entered the Industrial Age in 620 AD.
    Hopefully, I'll manage to get a Spaceship Victory early (about 1300 - 1400 ish) :)

    Are you building knights because you skipped military tradition or you don't have saltpeter?

    Both - I never really care to research Military Tradition. I let the AI research it for me. :cool:

    I decided to some tests with 'science farms' on a large pangaea world/emperor... not long after I totally lost my self-control and the game turned into a major milking exercise. :cry:

    Each of the cities there houses 5-7 scientist specialists. I decided to keep Inca and India around as trading partners, and I'm getting over 1000 gpt from them, combined. Needless to say, the experiment proved quite successful both treasure-wise and technology-wise...

    @ induktio

    Nice work. :thumbsup:

    You may find it beneficial to put the farms in a cxc pattern. That would obviously mean many more cities crowded into that same area.

    The advantages of a cxc spacing are no maintenance costs needed for aqueducts, plus each city will produce an additional 1gpt from wealth. Fully corrupt bigger cities, of course, only produce the same amount of gold from wealth as a size 1 city.

    Ideally, your cities would each be around size 6, working 2 irrigated, railroaded grass tiles and supporting 4 scientists each. Areas with less amounts of grass tiles will support fewer scientists per working citizen.

    I think the bigger size makes for more score.

    Yep, I think so too. I know he said he was on a milk run, but then changed to do science farming. My tips were just for future farming. Perhaps I should have made that clearer in my first post. :)
