    Province # 10

    Changes for 1460AD
    The following cities will have either their build queue changed and/or their labor adjusted. All directions are given from the city center. Anything not listed can be considered a continuation of the present situation.

    Ceasarea - labor = N, E,S, S-SE, SE-SE; Tax collector x4

    Nestucca Ridge - labor = N, NE; Tc x2
    queue = Harbor

    Tayloropolis - queue = harbor

    Vanspur - queue = harbor

    Duneus - queue = temple

    St. Brousard - labor = E-NE, SE-SE; Tc x2

    Wainuiomata - labor = W, S, S-SE; Tc x2

    New Transvaal - labor = W, SE; Tc x2
    queue = temple

    Gloucester - labor = NW-NW, W-SW, S; Tc x2
    queue = temple

    Sofia - labor = W, SW, N, NW-NW; Tc x3
    queue = temple

    Iveltorvich - queue = harbor

    The above changes will result in a total increase of +17 gpt.

    Any city in Province #10 that completes an assigned project and is lacking additional build orders will use as a default build order - Worker

    1 - Continue the galleon upgrades started last turnchat (with one exception, I'm willing to trade 2 galleon upgrades for a wall rush in Rejavick).

    We're nearly ready for the war on Egypt. Rejavick will complete its' temple next turn, and I'd like it to spend 1 turn on a wall, and then rush that the next turn (or that turn, and skip a few galleon upgrades). Egypt has rifles, so we can't go as fast as we'd like. Here's a timeline:

    Preturn - Keep the temple in Rejavick.

    Turn 1 - Build a road and rail on the saltpeter tiles by Obedoo. Start a wall in Rejavick. (rush it if you want - I'm willing to trade 2 galleon upgrades that turn if you rush for 160g, or 1 galleon upgrade if you rush the next turn for 80g. It's a logical tradeoff. This will make the AI focus on our wall-less cavalry). Fortify the cav army in the city. Place cavs and infantry on those tiles (1 west, and north of the city, and on the saltpeter).

    Turn 2 - If the wall hasn't been rushed, rush it now. Keep the infantry and cavs 1 west and north of Obedoo (we don't want Egypt to attack from the closest point to the city). Place cavs on the saltpeter tile, along with an army, and some infantry. Place infantry inside Obedoo.

    At some point, declare war on Egypt. Egyptian troops should come flying towards Obedoo - it has iron and saltpeter in its' radius, which the AI values.

    After the declaration of war.

    First and second turns of the war - A War of Attrition. Since Egypt has rails, we can let them come to us in 1-2 turns. This will not only clear our their units, but give them a healthy dose of war-wariness. Our troops will remain where they are in order to guide the Egyptians to where we want them.

    Afterwards, we can continue towards the Egyptian cities, moving our artillery, infantry, and cavs to the hill NNE of Lisht, prepare for, and then attack Edfu next turn, and continue with the rest of the invasion.

    Yes, it will be slow, but you can't just rush into a battle with cavs against Riflemen. (6 attack vs. 6 defense). I'd also like for us to continue pumping out artillery.


    Egyptian War Plans

    For this war, I'd like to have 11 more artillery, for a total of 30 (15 in 2 stacks). I'd also like a continued build of infantry, and cavalry.

    This calls for:

    30 artillery (15 in 2 stacks).
    40 cavalry (20 in 2 stacks).
    10 infantry (5 in each stack).

    At best, the war will take 6 turns. At worst, it may take 10 turns, or more. We may or may not have the luxury of building tanks by the time this war is over, much less even a handful for the last few Egyptian cities.

    The timeline is this:

    - Take out most of Greece by turn 2.

    - Turn 3, and 4, build up the railnetwork, heal and assemble our troops.

    - Turn 5, start to head for Egyptian cities.

    We can either wait until turn 7 before Knossos expands (turn 6 if we rush a temple), or declare war, and head to the green dots with our infantry/cav/arty/worker stack. The object here is to get onto the Egyptian Railnet ASAP.

    The workers will continue to build the railnet in southern Egypt. After that, the workers can head back home, save for a set of rails in Giza (unless it's already railed).

    The attacks will be based on this:

    Send the infantry/artillery stack to the closest point at which it can bombard. In most cases, this means waiting the extra turn. Bombard, and then attack. If the Egyptian cities are filled with regular pikes, then we could be a bit more bold with our cavs. If they're on hills (as are Mephis, Lisht, Asyut, and Bursiris, use the artillery). Always bombard Muskets and Riflemen. Then, send in the cavalry. If we can bombard any more cities the next turn with unused artillery, then do so. Egypt already has 85% of their railnet in place.

    Note: Try to follow this warplan as best as you can. I can't make an updated warplan before the forum goes down. Once is does, a copy of this thread will essentially be "locked" temporarily on my ISP account.
    Egyptian War Plan

    *NOTE* There's an Egyptian city on the ice island. Attack it, and keep it. We can build a harbor, then settler(s) in that city, then found 2 more cities (using an ICS build) on the ice island.

    Also, should we start building tanks during the Egyptian War, save 2 transports, and shuttle them over to meet up with our cav stacks. Tanks will attack Rifles (or even infantry) first. As the war starts to wind down, remember to move the transports 1 south of Delphi.

    EDIT: Remember that I won't be at the Turnchat at 1:30pm EDT. (I'll most likely be watching the Network Admin, verifying database entries, editing a webpage, or fixing bugs in a Visual Basic application at 1:30pm). Just go slowly, and I'll be home by the time turn 1 begins at 5:15pm. ;)

    Peace Treaties: The treaty with Persia expires in four turns. After that, check for peace renegotiation options. If we can renegotiate for favorable or equal terms, renegotiate peace. Other than that, sign no peace treaties during this chat.

    Rights of Passage, Military Alliances, Mutual Protection Pacts, and Trade Embargoes: Do not form any during this turnchat. If any MA's, MPP's, or Trade Embargoes are formed against us or may affect us, please announce this in the chat. Please stop the chat if an MPP is signed between Egypt and any nation other than England.

    War Declarations: Declaration of war against Egypt is authorized. Do not declare war on any other nation during this turnchat. If any nation other than Egypt or England declares war on us, please stop the chat.

    Tribute Demands:

    -Do not give in to any demands by Egypt or England unless we are both not ready for war and the amount is trivial (no more than 20 gold, 1 gpt, and/or a territory map).

    -From Aztecs and Zulu, reject the demand if it exceeds 40 gold, 2 gpt, or includes techs, resources, or cities.

    -If Persia demands tribute, it is up to DP discretion as to whether or not we pay, keeping in mind that we have lucrative deals with them. The only restriction is that all demands with cities, important techs, or strategic resources must be rejected.

    Territory Incursions: Please monitor territory incursions, and try to block the route of Settlers that try to cross our territory. If territory incursions occur, please report on them during the chat.

    The people have spoken. They want tanks as soon as possible; hence:
    While researching Mass Production; choose the science-slider-setting as low as possible to get Mass Production in 2 turns. That is in the preturn 80%. When we know Mass Production, set the science slider as high as possible, to get Motorized Transportation in the shortest time. Going into negative gpt is allowed, as long as it doesn't force our treasury to go below 0.
    When we know Motorized Transportation, lower the science slider slightly; to such a setting that keeps the tax increase to at least +500 gpt. The citizens have spoken out to not stop research fully.

    Of course lower the science-slider if we can get the researched tech in the same amount of turns, but with a better tax-output.

    If severe war-weariness occurs, the DP is allowed to up the lux-slider to 10%. If the unhappyness due to WW is too big to fight with just 10 % luxuries, please stop the chat.


    Cashrushes and upgrades
    Rush the temple in Almaren in the preturn. This was requested in the previous TC, so please do not forget it now. Accompanied with this is: sell the bank in Desolatem in the preturn.

    Upgrade all remaining galleons to transports. The time to do that is of the DP's choice.

    Rush all workers currently being build in the province of Nihilon.(cities: Wyfurd, Azura's Star, Las Cannibales, Paalsville, Stavanger, PDX III, Nea Roma, Gypsie and Tiriolo). Rush them when they have some shields in the box and only once for each city building them.

    For your convenience; click this link for a picture of Nihilon:


    Worker actions
    - Irrigate all irrigatable tiles south of our lake.
    - Clear the jungle.
    - Cut down forests on non-tundra tiles.
    - Mine Mountains and hills.
    - Plant forests on Tundra tiles.
    - and most important: Railroad every tile within the 21 tiles of any Fanatican city

    The order to do these actions is up to the DP to decide. On our continent, start working from the north, moving south. But please assign 10 native workers to irrigate the mines in the province of Norwich (the Peninsula) and 10 native workers to irrigate the province of Nihilon (see the picture).

    Use workers in groups; that way individual tiles are improves 'instantly'.
    Protect our workers when they get in danger of being captured by enemies. This can be done by placing escorting units with them, or to assign them to safer areas.

    If there are no more tiles to improve on a continent, transport the workers to a continent which still has tiles that can be improved. If no such continents exist, please hold them in reserve. No merging into cities; I tend to hold a discussion on that when that time has come.
    Please don't disturb the workers; let them finish the task they are performing. The only exception is: when enemy troops are in position to capture them.

    Nope, it was postponed to get the last few instructions. I think we can still use this thread as a "postponed turnchat thread" (a simple title change would do, I suppose).

    this is done, the library should stay 2 turns. After the library finishes, MM back to the mined hills/mountains and stay there until MM back to the irrigated tile remains the same number of turns. (hope that wasn't too complicated :D )

    Or task this session was to prepare for then start our War on Egypt, hopefully at a slightly faster pace than that for Greece!

    1460 AD – Preturn

    Set the queues according to Instructions hopefully getting more right this time! Internal already had a Factory, so the next item in the queue, a Cathedral was started instead. The Temple in Almaren was rushed, and the Bank sold in Desolatum.

    Trades were next; Lizzie was happy to trade Silks for Nationalism, but giving England rifles just before we invade didn’t seem a good idea. But without it the deal was just too expensive.

    All our galleons were upgraded to transports, and with the slight interruption of a Netsplit, the preturn was over – only 3 hours this time!
    End of Turn 0, 80% research, Mass Production in 2, 1055 gold, 191 gpt.

    In between, a Egypt demands we remove our, Army from their territory; we oblige for now :D. Egypt removes the Swordsman from our territory and some Egyptian troops run around just outside the borders of Obedoo.
