Lothercastle, I do not see any reason to answer, as it is all just general statements. For example, after workers finish current improves we will use all capital population on working improved ties and untill GH build there would be no spare population/happiness to work more ties. Trades.. yes you loose 5 turns, but how often you plan to trade? That is very mach abstact complain, at worst we loose pacifism bonus for 5 turns. Buddism? How it is connected to this turn set when only one of our cities has buddism and has population of 2? Talk to me when buddist city can actually produce missionaries, situation hopefully will be clearer. Sorry, but I am tied to deal with this s h i t.. I am very good micromanager and getting pacifism faster, use whip to get basic infrastructure in 6 cities faster will actually speed up oxward, not slow it down.
