    Highlights:






    The declaration by Monty didn't happen until Hatty was cleared out of africa, though Mansa took her last city down at the cape. :mad: foolishly, not realizing she vassaled rome, i took peace with her to cut down on unhappies. fortunately we took rome before the peace, and are now ready to restart the war with him (and the rest of them). I have a small force in the north of africa marked as Task Force Neapolis plus transports and destoyers to take them over teh sea.

    Monty didn't send anything to us but 2 destroyers and as we won the UN leader vote, i proposed ending the war w/monty and it succeeded. Still, i have a few destroyers on construction and it probably won't be long until he redeclares.

    I have our army mustering in the hills of central africa (that's the last pic). We have three generals there, so i think we should have 3 armies. We have OBs with him (not sure if that broke the variant rules actually ~ just now realizing it ~ but OBs with the intention just to scout territory before our advance may be justified, no?) so can scout his cities beforehand. Have about 7 anti-tank ready to go, plus a SIZEABLE amount of artillery and rifleman.

    I stopped unit production for the most part and focused on wealth or other "butter" builds, and we're gaining about 200 gold at 40% now. We'll have radio in 8 turns. also shifted some eps around ~ now 3:1:0 with Mansa:Hatty:the Rest.

    Open Borders? :confused: . Open Borders? :crazyeye:. With a barbarian ? :mad: :mad:.

    United Nation ? :confused:. There are no united nations, there's us and barbarian tribes and that's it. Ignore it. They want a resolution?. There shall be no resolution. It is beneath Our Dignity to consort with barbarians or their lickspittle emissaries. Which tribe has built this ridiculous edifice? Burn it down.

    Apart from the absurd confusion between barbarians and real people sounds like a fine round. The aztec barbarians were bound to be aztec barbarians sooner or later.

    With industrialisation we can start building battleships iirc as well as a few tanks. Radio for bombers then maybe switch tech off and just focus on military and new cities.

    Once we start to erase the malinese their french lapdogs will probably yap a bit so maybe send a few dog wardens in that direction.

    ahh, forgot to mention ~ france has built the apollo. we have our roman task force for the continent, as well as several cities in the western russian/eastern europe that can afford to be denuded of all but token defense to take the rest of europe.

    Had a look at the save. We have some anonymous generals, could do with being named (after famous Samurai of course). Destroyer stack in the Seychelles could perhaps be split, half to madagascar and half to australia. Might be nice to have some battleships in our pacific fleet in case the meso-american barbarians become more determined in their insolence. Overall looking good (though we still need more land).

    Looking over the save, we have a considerable stack(s) in Africa for Mansu which is good but there's no settlers with them. will build settlers



    IHT-

    Moved 2 settlers from France to Africa
    Split our Africa stack into 3 stacks
    Canceled OB with Mansa

    Only played about 8 turns, declared on Mansa and cleared his west coast.
    We can clear out Mansa with the current configurations of SoD w/settlers:)

    Spoiler :

    oh yeah I forgot about that:lol:I haven't fixed the setting on my monitor that enables a full 1080p picture.

    I did get a UN resolution that I selected none. All the units that are built on the east are going to the pickup for Australia, battleships and transports are needed for that fleet.

    The other aircraft carrier and transports around the South Cape of Africa is going to pick up our stack on the west Coast, however, we need more transports for that. Mansa will be gone in no time.

    Sounds good.

    For some reason I am unable to load the save (though I´m able to load pholkhero´s last save) so cannot comment in detail.

    How goes the war in Europe?

    Any signs of the green barbarian from the other continent?
