    Oh man - I hope not...

    Gengis - can you d/l the save and take a peek at attitudes and such? I can't look at this until tonight.

    That blows my mind that New Cologne flipped to the French... Once we with this thing, I may roll some Panzers through there and raze it just as a matter of principle. Traitors. If there's one thing in life I hate worse than a quitter, it's a traitor.

    @GK - yeah, you're spot on. I wasn't thinking straight at the time, I think the curveball I got from the game shortly beforehand was still playing on my mind. I was trying to make the most of a bad call I had already made, and ended up making things worse.

    Just wait till you see my next two screenshots, if you want to see utter horror. I shall from now on be calling today "Black Tuesday" or "Another day I wish I could do over"

    Another point - if that dyes deal falling through has blown our rep, I will be mightily pissed off... It wasn't technically us that blew the deal, of course, it was Ghandi, when he lost control of the dyes which were his end of the deal...

    I don't think the cause makes a difference. If a deal is broken for any reason we get a rep hit. We should however be able to Gift a bunch of techs to everyone the turn before the un vote to make everyone happy again.

    If the above isn't just delightful enough, check out this for irony. GK, you must be prophetic ;)
    Look what everyone got this turn...

    Mistfit, this is the request - could you make me one of those "weedy move" graphics? I think I deserve one, if not two :blush:

    Ok, let's focus on things I did right. I am happy with the worker merging program, and I will show you the results...

    Things to note for the next better player...

    Infantry builds need to be changed to artillery. Currently our military is:

    2 warriors
    2 spearmen
    4 pikemen
    1 knight
    4 riflemen
    18 infantry
    9 cannon
    15 artillery

    Other messes I have left for Scout to clear up include the massive imminent rebellion since people can no longer have tie-dyed clothes (what's wrong with white??) and the huge round of trading to do for techs. We have a lot of spare cash, and electronics to trade for sanitation (saving us one turn) and the Corporation. I would have done both of these this turn, but as I mentioned above, I finished my turns at a point where the game crashed, and went no further...

    P.S. The save is on the download server now, and someone needs to explain to me how to attach multiple images in one post, preferably in a "big print for thickies" version... On the other hand, this method is doing my post count no harm at all... :rolleyes:

    Amazingly our rep is still intact.

    Don't worry about the riots either, not much you could have done. *Another small tip- if you lose a lux during the IT, after the first city riots you can go to the city and use the scroll arrows to scroll through your cities and put a clown in each. This will prevent riots in all but 1 of your cities. Normally I hate anything that has to do with "big picture" or scrolling around, but I think this one is ligit(imho).*

    The corperation/sanitation isn't really a big deal either, just cost us a turn or two on the next tech. We can easily trade Electronics for both those.

    I'd go with Steel next, the AI will normally research Combustion first due to it producing a resource.

    Perfect :rotfl:

    Edits

    @Mist - yes, it was me defending Tokugawa... :rolleyes: Never again!

    @GK - thanks for being understanding as I systematically trashed our game ;) Good points about the next tech and the scroll through idea. That last one did occur to me, but again, i am conditioned not to use exploits, even if they are legit - fiddling during the IBT via the scroll arrows just reeks of dodginess, though I agree that in that situation, there should be something you can do to get clowns in your cities as an interim fix.

    I'm amazed there isn't a whole book of pictures for Shaka.
