Sometime in the 800s I stopped trying to coordinate workers with city growth, as I got tired of it. Maybe I should have convinced myself that wouldn't last the whole game and slugged it out. I also micro-managed citizens less. I did put out a few more workers. In 910 AD I passed the 7000 mark. In 980 AD I learned Communism (via scientist only research) and set research to Industrialization, which I would get in 6 turns (via scientist only research). In 1000 AD I had a score of 7761. One turn before this I had started with the 'shift-A' command for my workers, and had added some in, keeping about 60 around. as I had just about everything irrigated and railroaded. In 1030 I passed the 8000 mark. Around this time I had pollution in like 4 cities. I noticed the workers didn't clean all of them immediately. I then noticed a large slew of workers fortified in one city. It looks like just using shift-A doesn't work as I would like. I also had a lot more slaves than I expected, so I added in a bunch of workers. My 1010 score read 7846 and my 1020 score 7931. SirPleb's calculator yields 18,913 as my final score. In 1050 AD my score read 8189. In 1060 AD my score read 8277. On this turn I added in like 10-15 workers, as that's when I noticed that large fortified stack of workers. SirPleb's calculator read 19,697 as the final score from these two dates. Since I have some growth left to go still in some spots, I think I'll hit 20k or at least get pretty close.
