    Excellent set. No one End Turns quite like Ruff-PTLWPWHNPATNRPA.

    I changed my mind on the whole Pottery for Cottages thing ~ I way into the old Agriculture for Farming FPs thing now. Lotta hipsters are into it too.

    I believe Nolition said that he will play the third set, so I'll give him 24 to see if he does feel like that, or is just pulling our collective legs.

    PS ~ you can say "Ruff Pittle Whip Whan Patton Rippa"

    Well played, from the looks of it!

    I'll make the time.

    But that's also what I would say if I were pulling your legs.

    So I guess you really don't know if I'll play or not.

    But I will. That's what I want you to think.

    I hate to end the suspense, but I did in fact play.

    My first move was to spend longer than ruff_hi did in all of his turns just on trying to figure out how to access the BUG menu. I bet he thought he could stop me from changing the settings by taking the icon away. Who thought up the shortcut ALT CTRL O in the first place?



    I turned the alternate game clock OFF. All other settings left unchanged.



    I'm feeling sentimental, so I took a picture of this forest growing. I also didn't swap away from Bronze Working, because let's just work some bronze. I also like how it lists Japan as DEAD in all caps.



    I don't know how to get those fancy logs, so here's a screenshot. Hinduism founded in a distant land. Warrior trying to do a bit of exploring.



    Julius Caesar was the one who founded Hinduism. I've already failed on mission: don't meet anyone.



    I fail again. This time it's a warrior, so I bring our own back just in case the Chinese try to ravage London.

    Kyoto grows to size 3, finishes the warrior. I start building a worker. London's worker finishes, and can't do anything except start quarrying that stone. Who picked our research priorities?? Hehe. I also put one turn into another warrior in London (for scouting) but it can be changed to GWall for barb purposes.

    Well done.

    I'd change the warrior to an archer in London (for defence), don't put any hammers into GWall until Stone is hooked up. An archer in Kyoto after the worker would be good as well.

    Not sure about continuing with BW as we will have 2 workers soonish and need to keep them occupied, Agriculture, Pottery and Animal Husbandry can do that (although if we have Copper I take it back).

    Looks like you're up pholk!

    Yeah. I had a similar thought process.

    We can build mines, but that's the only non-quarry tile improvement available for us until we get agriculture.

    Good set ... nice exploring with the warrior.

    That was either me or EmperorFool. We did add a flashing 'Alt-Ctrl-O to change options' text (where it says 'hit enter for next turn') that you should see every time you start the game.

    I don't like the alternate game clock either ... but I forgot to turn it off. BTW ... these BUG / BUFFY options are install specific ... they are yours and WILL NOT travel forward with the game.

    One problem that we will run into is getting around the lack to that new forest that is in our BFC (big fat cross) - that trip will be annoying.

    Logging tab on the options page. I thought it started automatically but it didn't seem to want to. I had to provide a hard coded path to one of my directories.

    BW finishes in 5 turns. The quarry is complete in 8. Agric will take 8 turns ... but farming FP gives +1 food ... did I mention that this capital location is very(!) food poor? Even our one food tile only gives +1 food when improved. This is not your science superstar that other capitals can be. We should look to relocate the capital and leave London as The Defender of the Empire.

    I would finish BW, chop a tree while waiting for Agric (if we want to go that way). The stone connects via the river so we don't need roads to connect it.

    What can I say. I'm a natural homebody.

    We couldn't road to the stone even if it were necessary. We don't have The Wheel.

    [Side note: my tone okay?]

    Duh!!!!! That is exactly what I am saying. Some low quality players (Pholk) might think that we need the wheel and research it to connect our stone.

    Yes. See above :D:D:D:D:D:D:run:

    I, too, thought keeping BW to get the chops for GWall.

    I've got it; will play later today i think.

    so, after BW, Wheel for roads to connect stone and then monotheism for religion ~ got it! :thumbsup:

    Are we talking about the same pholkhero whose auto signature literally says that it's fun to lose with him?

    PS my tablet's keyboard swipe replaced "pholkhero" with bookshelf. Seemed fitting.

    Don't forget to farm over the stone after we get Agriculture.

    Is the stone irrigated? If not, we'll have to wait until Bureaucracy.

    don't be mad no one think's you're fun

    and i quote:
    and i /quote

    also:
    esp when they're going to be a 3rd Bill and Ted movie

    not much to report. we're jewish now, and I farmed the stone as requested.

    Turns out i'm not as good as Ruff; instead of pressing enter, I was pressing backspace. Took me about 3 hours to finish my ten turns.

    I MM'd london to focus on production just to get the Archer out faster.
    After a few turns, BW came in. We got copper:


    and revolted:


    Headed for Husbandry to see Horses and upgrade our cow soonish. After we finished improving the stone, i moved to the gold instead of prechopping thinking we could use the immediate production. Might've been :smoke:

    There was a brief confrontation in the woods:

    I told him that I was Brian, and so was my wife, and he left us alone.

    Spied Monty:

    Or he spied us.

    That's basically it. Almost done AH, still production focused in London, but once the archer is done, maybe swap to grow so we can whip the GWall as well as use the chops. Thinking our next city should go here:

    for bridging our cities and grabbing the elephants for later w Construction.

    Some shots of the empire, and preliminary dotting ~
    The north:


    and the south:

    You are right, you are right. I have re-read the DM SG Rules and will read them again before posting / reporting.


    Good job on getting copper!

    I always like a high tech rate ... especially in Always War.

    Hmm ... from our South? Or did he come from the North between our cities? I was going to say 'beware of Monty as he is a nut case re DOWs' ... but that doesn't make any sense as this is AW.

    Not a huge fan of this one ... maybe one city SWSW of the dot to retain the corn and work some hills and one NW of the banana to pick up all of the other goodies. We have to use that banana. Maybe city 1SE of the banana to work the flood plains and move the Phant city SW?

    We are going to struggle for food.

    i was talking about no one liking Rex, but I am sorry no one thinks you're fun. i mean, we tolerate you, so you've got that going for you . . . which is nice . . .

    also, will be OOP 4/27-5/6 (* i think* ~ going to see if the soon-to-be-wife's laptop will handle Civ 4 and if i feel like playing on my honeymoon)
