    I don't know if he uploaded yet and i dont know if he changed the name yet. Neither do i know if you only checked the filename or the ingame date, but the game he posted on the forum here is the correct date 1725BC with the filename 2070BC.

    The AI rarely researches literature, so we will be able to trade it when we want to.

    Why did you build the city in grasslands? We have many hills in that area and little grasslands, so its better to build a city on hills so we have more grasslands to use for it. Also this way there are tiles in those hills next to the river we don't have acces to. It is ok if i give advise and people think and do differently. but noobe even comments on it or anything, it seems to be simply ignored. Oh well, i'll just play my 10 turns and not expect any more discussions.

    About the archer: with militaristic civs, i prefer to build barracks first before making any units that you ever expect to fight. I also try to build as few as possible warriors without barracks since veterans might be upgraded someday. (i never upgrade a regular unit).

    Basically because I tried to follow your suggestions and moved northwest instead of northeast.

    By the way, I definitely took into account your advice and Ankka's, I did tell you all that I was a novice at this and am trying to learn. It is a game, after all.

    No problem, you aren't playing at all worse than I was playing when I started SG-ing.

    The save isn't there because Jeff never uploaded his, and I don't know whether or not I can upload mine before he has. I did ask about it twice in my earlier post. Anyway, let me know what you think, and I'll upload it tonight if you all think that's what I should do.

    We could wait for Jeff to upload his, so the uploader won't get mixed up. Let's not risk it.

    You can upload your save waitingtoderail. It's fine, you don't have to wait for Jeff. :)

    suggestion:

    waitingtodorail, if he still didnt upload his file, you can upload both your starting file and finishing file (in that order obviously) then ankka can go on with his turns.

    I don't have new suggestions since i also dont have the newest save file.

    edit: oh never mind, i see mad-bax already answered about this.

    Anything you want, it will be renamed when you upload it to the GOTM server.
