    This is Pacal at Deity level. He starts with mining and myst. I would choose the stone because three hammer starts are awesome. There may be food revealed to the west as well. The sugar also looks good too as a three food start (and no AH to learn). I'm thinking BW and start chopping. Anyone else want to share their ideas?

    Either on the riverside Plains Hill Stone, or somewhere wrong. That gets you +2 hammers from your city tile instead of +1 food

    On the stone for me, no doubt. That's a T10 worker that can start by farming the sugar (unless something better available), then start chopping. Pigs can wait.

    On sugar, losing corn hurts with not fitting starting techs while pigs can be used later by another city.

    True, can't have both agri and BW, I somehow missed that. Bit of a shame not to settle on stone, but on sugar is only 1T slower worker and a fast development post-worker.

    The logic is stronger with the sugar start. Of course, moving the settler to sugar would reveal more of the map.

    There is a plethora of sugar. I see a lot of jungle. Another bonus of the sugar start is no delay to turn two. This looks like a good start. Thanks for your help!

    Seems to be a really nice start. Cannot play atm, but would love to see some screenies when the game continues. If you want to post them.

    I'm a bit busy, myself. I'll post them when I get back to it.
