Assorted comments: . mapscript new guessing: Ice Age (with low sea level) is another possibility (84*36=3024 tiles with some water mixed in). I'd need to generate a few of those to check. . as you can notice in the latest screenie, our espionage ratio to Toku is (we)32/(him)45. I believe this is a good hint he hasn't met anyone else, however the fact he's spending more than 4 ept surprised me. . settling options: while there are 2 ok coastal sites (pigs/gems & banana/crabs), they are probably safe to be settled later. We should try to settle towards the East. . diplomacy and war: I don't think we have a chance to stay in good terms with Toku. Therefore I am all for trying a worker steal and choking him until we can attack his cities.
