Nice work. Well, there really are other, sort of, hidden penalties such as research as it is directly modified by our population size, so slow growth means less research over time. Perhaps we should switch gears and think about taking on Alex while he is at war with Cathy. We *could* backstab him for a change. Have not looked at the save but we probably need to try and find other civs? Do we need to build another Trireme for exploration? Yeah, had to skip.
