So...what did you do?
Move the settler over the nearest village, sometimes the villagers found a city.
When I first got Civ I my game crashed every time I got the rifling tech. Since you could conquer the world before then or reach space w/o it that wasn't too bad but I used to get nervous when the AI had tanks and aircraft and I still had muskets.
the only thing 11/11 is thought of around these parts is the beginning of carnival season
isn't National Day of Mourning your equivalent in which case it seems to be about a week later than our Remembrance Sunday?
I think there was a glitch I ran into where the game crashed because the advisor wasn't able to suggest a building.
I remember my first game of civ I. I wandered a turn to see if maybe there was a better place to settle rome and a greek chariot popped up and killed me. Game over. Took all of about 10 seconds.
Puts hair on your chest.
It sure made me wonder why everyone was saying what a great game it was.
I wasn't really able to get into it until Civ 2.
It seems to me that believing myths and accepting oral tradition as potentially valuable are two different things.Yes, the lines can get fuzzy. Aboriginal myths can be very ... different and certainly confusing in the least. Oral tradition about sea levels seems much less like mythology and more like an attempt at reporting. Genesis, with its multiple authors/sources appears to be a mix of both oral tradition reporting and myth building.
Those remarks were somewhat hastily composed because i was going out and needed more effort on my part. I was poking at a common idea that primitive peoples possessed wisdom about life and living that we have lost in our "modern" post HG and agriculture society. As it were, if they were so smart, why didn't they see the rise of change as the doom of that wisdom? primitive peoples were very practical and knew how to survive and adapt, but nothing more. The noble savage. I do not subscribe to such thinking. "Words are like slippery pigs...." Mea culpa in my haste to post.
We now return to our regularly scheduled program.
This doesn't answer my question.
OK "Some people think that Aboriginal oral tradition demonstrates knowledge of and accurately describe the geology and ecology of Australia from 10,000 or more years ago."
Myths about one people and one language might be far older, maybe even 200+ kya when we all lived somewhere in Africa.
Wait, how did people even get to Australia? My galleys always sink when I send them into the ocean.
Wrong ship. Wait until caravels, or start as the Polynesian civilization and use these bad boys.
galleys can cross straits
Playing as Seafaring civilization also reduces the chances of galleys sinking in the open seas and ocean
