    Don't bother trying to play multi-player then. That paranoid, micro-crazed bunch will have your butt on a platter in no time.

    Probably true... Considering that "Noble" is the top of my game right now. I don't spend so much time with Civ as some, if not most you here, may.

    I automate my workers all the time about 1/3 of the way through the game. I usually play on large or huge maps, with as many as 30 cities, and I am not about to micro-manage 50 workers.

    Basically, as soon as I get the techs where they can build plantations and wineries, I am done managing them. The one really annoying thing is that when you get airports automated workers will start using them, sometimes flooding a 4 square island with 10 workers that can't fly back.

    Sorry Boss - I'm stuck here in the Caribbean, nothing I can do about it. It seems my travel agent sold me a 1-way ticket.

    I must note one exception here ...
    ... I automate workers for a few turns after peace treaty in a cavalry war.
    ... after they've improved a good percent of the damage I turn off automation and tweak the BFCs back to how I want them.

    I guess I'm lazier than I initially thought :mischief:
