Settings as per the original then, no variants!
And a name?
Remake/Re-rise Of The Queen Mother?
OK I played some turns hurrah!
Basically played some buildery turns to build up the army as such
We don't have bombards yet, in 4 turns (building some catapults to finish in 3 turns to upgrade) but might be all right to attack now.
As Scythia might be busy with other things
That happened towards the start of the set, so hopefully still in full swing.
Also, for bombards we need niter, which I don't think we had (couldn't see anyway) so voila
such a terrific city site ~ I got it, and will probably play later today. also, i'd like to play a little bit of cIV, but perhaps in a few days we can start that up.
Yep, I'll start something up in a few days.
On the inherited turn, I denounce Scythia and on the IBT, she went to Industrial Age.
t162: Started a theatre district in tokyo for culture
found a barb hut on our lands:
I think Mohenjo is going after it so that's good for us. Also, an enemy spy siphoned gold from us, but we don't actually lose gold.
t163: Civics: Humanism>Enlightenment on towards Nationalism
t164: We got another Great Gen'l which got us the inspiration for Enl'ment. I sent him near our troops at Ostia. (Which finished another Cat>Uni started.)
ibt: Gil doesn't like us much:
t165: Metal Casting>Printing
t166: Aquil: Rax>Granary
I went and upgraded our Cats to bombards, its gets us the eureka for siege tactics. And I notice that Mohenjo did take care of the barbs.
ibt: even though he doesn't like us, I take this deal b/c eh:
t167: Enlightenment>Nationalism for corps
Chengdu: Knight>Ind Zone
Hamdan: Holy Site>??
I move in from the west and south of her capital. With the GGs, I was able to bombard and begin the attack w battering ram help.
Charles Darwin likes us:
sent him to Hamdan to pop by the natural wonder there
And so does Giovanni de Medici:
sent to Rome to wait for a Commerical district there. We become the suzerain for Vilnius now
t169: Siege>Military Science>Ballistics from G Scientist pop. This brings us to the Ind Era.
t170: Pazyryk falls:
t171: Kostromskaya welcomes our horsies:
Rome: Workshop>Commerical District
ibt: found this clown:
t172: Ballistics>Industrialization (I meant to only partially research this as we have workshops being completed, but I forgot )
Kyoto: Ind Zone
Gila?: water mill>ent district
upgrade xbows to field canons
t173: Xixang: ??>barracks
The last city in the north that's adjacent to us. I want to go on to get Neapolis as its an affront to both our territory and our Roman city naming conventions.
ITs on the western continent where Peter is (and later we find this lady there)
ibt: russia to modern era
t175: Illegible. sorry
ibt: denounced by Russia
t176: Nationalism>Mercantilism to backfill; start making corps of our units
Ostia: Uni>Trader to make internal trade routes for food for the city. As a great production city, we can use the internal food routes to let it grow more.
t177: Rome: Commerical District (pop merchant to get market and bank)>Workshop
Tokyo: Theatre District>Amphitheatre
I've got some units up north ready to go after England. We should combine our units into corps, build any extra units we need to form them for our odd-men-out. Also, techwise and civicwise, I think we're good. Game's in the bag really. It's a bit sad you need to play on Deity to really get a challenge from the AI.
Good work Mr khero.
I'll be able to continue this on the weekend.
Well it's not quite the weekend but who's counting.
So my plan was to move the troops towards London and get ready for an attack.
Decide to change our policies to help us out to that effect
Made a trade with France because, why not!!
Problem with attacking London is that most the front is occupied by Scythia, so do this
And then this
And then this
Do we want anything else from England or just go for peace and roll on to the next victim?
I'm not sure where the others are in relation to London but we could peace out and try to find them.
I can work on that.
Also, I'm ready for Civ4 whenever; been getting stomped bythe AI on prince. I forgot how much bertter the AI was in that game.
We might need to carve a passage through England to get access to GIlgamesh if he is on our continent. The others are all overseas I think.
Yeah the AI is much better in Civ IV.
I'll start something for Civ IV, while you ponder this one...
OMG, a succession with civ6. I will be a spectator. BTW, have any of you watched Potato McWhiskey's youtube videos?
Hey Tally ~ haven't watched any of his vid's but thanks for stopping by here! we're starting up a civ4 one as well . . .
I've had a bad sinus infection for about a week or so, so haven't done much gaming. I finally had the chance to play yesterday, and didn't do much of anything more.
I took Vicky's city that had the pyramids, got two more cities in a peace deal, and worked on wonders. Every other civ is on another continent so it's a question of where we want to go with the victory. We can turtle up and tech our way to space, or go after them on the other continent. I think in terms of action, obviously the latter course has more of that, but I think, in the end, space might make the game end faster (time-spent-wise) since we'll just be pushing workers around and pressing enter most of the time.
if you're interested:
I've been sick as well and away for work as a bonus on top. I'll pick this up on the weekend. I'm happy to go for science win but will need some pointers as I've only ever done this once for my first game of Civ VI.
After that I might roll a start on ROTQM.
Just went to play this and realised, no save!!!!!
Assume that my focus is on industrial and science districts?
Time to get this baby back on the road....
Played 10 turns.
One thing of note happened, we popped a Great General. As we don't want any more war, is it worth burning him for the two envoys (same for existing ones as well)? I'll let you decide...
Turn I finished we researched a tech and civc, nothing available gives us a bonus, so I left those for you to decide as well....
kk, i gots it
so i've playing through to the end here. Got about 5 turns from victory and Sumer beat us to Space! I was auto-piloting it, thinking that we had no competition.
Boo. That's no good.
I was watching guardians 2 while i played i have a save from about an hour before the loss; i may save scum that one
