    Not much to say on scouting. I think we have an excess of scouts, so recommend settling 2 cities on T0. Depressing lack of seafood south of us.
    Curious to see NW of us.
    Is there a specific scouting debate open rt now?

    I think MirrorGuard is right about being based on "Narrow continents" (welcome, btw), and LC is right about it being 'small' amt of land-- even for narrrow continents--my tests were 820-835 tiles.
    We can only hope NZ edited out some of the Ice.
    Circumnav would likely be impossible with an unedited Hi-seas map.

    Yikes, sorry about that. I hope you get your internet access worked out soon. And you really are playing Civ on your phone!! haha

    I agree that moving the settler at wine-SW one tile SW (i.e. onto the deer resource) to see if there is any seafood in the fog. I don't think that move would be considered too controversial, but you never know. I think just one settler scouting the Great Northwest will be fine.

    I also think moving the settler at wine-NW W-NW makes sense to see if there are any goodies up that way that might pull us of the PH.

    Hey, the screenshot in the new pre-game announcement has fewer unfogged tiles in the NW than what was there originally. Same thing in the SW. Before, we could see that those tiles were empty. I think NZ had them defogged by mistake...

    MirrorGuard (i.e. MG if you don't mind :)), we use a lot of acronyms so please ask if you're not sure what we mean.

    Approval rate is high (83) what does that mean? They have happy resources pre-connected?
    I am predicting that NZ is going to give us all the happy resources so each city can become a huge, wonderful, non-overlapping megalopolis.
    Barren land everywhere except the AI capitals.

    That's the same approval rating as the test game...

    Agreed. Our proposed scout moves were based on the unfogged tiles in the original screenshot. Because some of those tiles are now fogged, the originally-proposed scout moves need to change.

    Then are you going to drive back to Starbucks to upload another screenshot? If so, can you pick up a latte for me? :coffee:

    That's what I did in my testing but we haven't fully agreed on the MM yet. Are you planning to play around in the test game first?

    W-NW, yes? I assume that what you found in the real save matches what we saw in the original pre-game announcement, correct?

    Corrected. Nw. Yes, matches.

    Do you mean play around the settling order?

    I thought WT was decided on gems as capital. Seems stronger long term. Especially with wet rice. Coastal capital gives us exploring wb sooner but delays rices and sheep massively. Is there really a choice?

    Or did you mean work out MM before playing on? If so, yes I thought we would settle and I could upload I suppose. Or not. In any case I need to optimize the MM yes, before moving on.

    Yes, we did have consensus on gems as our capital. I just wouldn't do any settling at all until we've agreed on our MM through AH and possibly through Mysticism as well. I don't see a need to upload the save now unless someone else wants to fog gaze.

    I'm fairly confident that we'll find a great city location in the next handful of turns that will mess up all of our planned MM but it's good to have a solid plan involving just the first two cities and we can adjust accordingly.
