    After you set the trend of not posting pics every time you played i joined in! :p

    @Sugar gives out less food when plantationed than when crabs are worked, only +1 iirc so settling west of the hill makes more sense if we want to use it as a GP farm. Also, settling on the sugar allows us to work another hill whilst we get the city set up into the GP farm.

    edit- turn played, not much going on, worker finishes when the turn flips- will start on WB and move the worker onto the gold north east north.

    My understanding is that the worker would go chop a forest.

    No bronze working yet, so chopping is going to have to wait a bit...

    Yep, hence the hill to the north as there are 4 forests around it which can be easily chopped.

    So a work boat first may have been best! Not that it mathers anymore.

    For the first 15 turns yes but the advantages of having the worker out is far greater as it means we can chop the second workboat quicker and still maintain population growth at a better pace.

    A view to keep everyone happy



    With respect to a GP farm, i don't see any spot on these island thats particularly ideal without comrpmising the positions of other city placements, and if we are going to be whipping early then were not going to be fully using it.

    I think we are better off having 2 commerce driven cities in the north and 2 production driven cities in the south and saving the GP farm for somewhere else

    Darkness's map from CDZ, looks like this ties up with BCLG's suggestions:

    As at cdz

    Anyways, finished turn, mine done in 4, BW in 5. No-one else has gone up in pop yet which means that everyone went worker first (or at least worker at somepoint when they realised they were on an island.

    BCLG hadn't logged in yet so i went and pressed enter

    Though i'd take a picture in case anyone has forgotten what our island looks like


    And the demographics too


    Of interest 4 teams have a pop size of 2, we along with one other team still have a pop of 1. Not a surprise given we are 6th out of 6 in crops.

    No one else has researched BW at this point since their soldier counts haven't jumped up.

    And in 2 turns when our pop increases working the gold hill will give us a very handy lead in GNP

    All in all were looking good.


    Also given there was no copper found on the island the red dot city i was in favour of is less important in my mind now unless we plan to chop an early wonder

    So we need off this island. With Sailing due in 10 do we put our first settler on the new land and infil our island later?

    I think it's dependent on what we find, the extra gold on our island would be fairly useful in pushing an early research rate.

    We probably should not read too much into it, but there's no mention in Merlot's video of knowing there is a route to more land as we have. If we had move our capitol we would not be able to see the route, could they have moved before settling and not be able to see the way out?

    It is possible, but i think they are just hinting on the fact that everyone is starting on their own little island

    Nope, plodding along. Sailing next turn- will start on wheel. Just finishing off a warrior before a start on a WB and then will see how things look there, may be worth getting another city on the go.
