    Sorry for taking so long this turn.

    I have opened the save a few times to play, but I keep getting interrupted by all aspects of life.

    I am trying to figure out how to deal with Memphus' most incredible luck with the RNG.

    I am also trying to figure out how 1 turn it says he is 3 turns to Physics, and the next turn he is 6 turns to Flight!!!

    And I will add to the spoiler soon, I know I have been totally lacking in that department, but I just don't have that much time.

    Oh well that is easy:

    1. I needed the :gold: for unit upgrades because some crazy neighbour to the NE attacked me.

    2. Physics was 2 turns away. So I dropped my research to make gold but still be able to get it in 2 (that made it show 3 turns). However I also made it look like I ran 0% research ;)

    3. On the next turn I got the gift of new infantry, well deserved :p , so didn't need to use as much gold

    4. Went back to :science: and got physics and immediately chose flight. (It is time for airships to die)

    BTW this is what I was talking about in the main forum, there are many techniques to "hide" ones research in MP. and why i think it is bogus Kaz is trying to stop us...

    Ask AT, I did it with Liberalism too.

    I thought with a PBEM, that when you ended your turn, I "saw" where you were at, at the end of the previous turn. No changes can be made AFTER you end the turn.

    That is why I am so confused, I "see" 3 turns to Physics, and 1 turn later, I "see" 6 turns to flight!

    yeah, that's what happened with liberalism.

    It had nothing to do with me not paying any attention to what you could be researching....

    That is correct, I can't change what I do after I end turn. But I can change what I do before I end my next one :)

    So:

    2 turns ago My research Said Physics in 3 turns.

    Last Turn It said again 3 tursn to physics (even though I did research ;) it was 1 :science: shy of saying 2 turns

    Then on this next turn I cranked it back up again and got physics in 1 and overflowed into flight. :goodjob:

    After the GREAT lesson from the MTDG....thanks Memphus

    I used the now famous "Memphus" plan, I call it "Attack to the last man"! It works very well on land at least.
