Would you play on?
Try it and tell us how it goes. You need 6 workers stat.
I'd play it if I had set out with the goal of playing a bad start. That might be fun. Could you post the world seed?
What is the difficulty level?
Two fish, a luxury, gold, and close-by rivers and bonus resources? Certainly not an awesome start, but I see a worse start than that, for either myself or a neighbor, every few games.
Nailz, this is not a bad start. Just found 2 or 3 cities on the obvious sites, then produce nothing but workers. Dozens of them! You'll develop very slowly at first, but you'll catch up easily when you have a 95% grassland territory with rivers...
However, this is only true if you have no neighbours. If you have neighbours, you'll be an easy prey. Better start over.
Not too bad, but bad initial management. you have no mp in the city (baaad!) - build a warrior asap, then a settler, then a worker, then an harbor, then a warrior as second mp. Now you should go up in population and produce other settlers and/or workers.
You may need to move your capital once you've built a few cities on the landmass.
Bad luck with barbs...
Now that really is a start. At least you have a bonus grassland. Nice touch having an expansionist Civ.
What level was it?
Why don't you post the save.
Go to the SG forum and look at DocT3.
THEN, you'll see how lucky you are.
Nailz, this is far from being really ugly...
That is ugly:
MSTK: Is that a random map? So far, I couldn't get hold of a reproducable 1 tile island .
More nice Starts...
MSTK, that's a challenging map...
BTW, which graphic mod is this? Watercolor? It looks good... Would you have another screenie with more details? I may consider downloading it.
@DocT: The only grassland in range can't be used by any city!
Watercolor is probably the best terrain mod there is...in my opinion, of course. Right now I'm on a different computer, but you can see some of my maps from the demogame.
@ Nailz: Why do you have "Bonus" Desert? S and SSW of Constantinople?
I don't think that is desert bonus. He just turned on the "show food and shields on map".
where is the watercolor downloadable?
Settler : What the hell?
Scout : You can have fun with those monkeys and elephants aint ya.
Wow, I've never seen all these terrain mods, or worker actions on that one map with all the moutains. I really need to get some expansions to CivIII, I've had Civilization III version 1.07 for over three years now.
a) Welcome to CFC!
b) I suggest the settler to one northwest of where he is now. He can pump out ten-turn workers while making some decent money. Use those workers to chop that ugly stuff and you have yourself a world-class start!
