Actually, I haven't played this since May. I've just been slow with the updates like I said before.

Update 32 - Soon there will be guilds!
Spoiler:


Time to choose a tech!


A better look at the tech tree.


And the further end of the tech tree.


We'll go with Guilds since that gives us Grocers and Knights.


Settler built! Time to build a Missionary to spread Judaism and improve our financial bottom line.

End Update 32

When I get into this I can really play it for hours on end, it's such a great logical game.

That was my problem with this game. I have played several files since I last played this one.

And since I got a reply so fast I'm going to post Update 33 as well.

Update 33 - Improving Finances
Spoiler:


Oh look even more Settlers.


Over there looks like a very good spot for my next city.


And now for a Longbowman to defend those newer cities.


And with our coffers in the red, we need to build one of these Courthouses to cut maintenance costs.


This Great Prophet came at a very good time.


Holy building for the Islamic religion in the game. Grants me gold for each city with Islam.


And we have another Great Prophet. This may put us in the green.


It wasn't enough, so we'll have to adjust our finances.

End Update 33.


Update 34 may be coming within the next week.

The intense nation-saving action indeed.*

*statement only applies to my views in Civilization, not reality

Oh yes it is.

Update 34 - Telling Saladin to Bugger Off
Spoiler:


We're spreading that religion. And stupid enemy espionage mission poisoning Yaroslavl''s water supply.


We need a Barracks here for a better military. Can't keep up with France if my forces don't have the EXP points.


Oh, and Yaroslavl''s borders expanded.


Photographed evidence I'm not neglecting to defend my newest cities.


This Settler is going to go on a ship to some place Napoleon's troops can't get to by land.


No thank you. I don't really trust you not to pillage my improvements.


After the fiasco with the French we've really been pumping out Longbowmen.


Oh, and these guys.


Best place ever for a city.


Actually, this is an ever better place for a city. Different Settler, by the way.

End Update 34


And to think there's only 19 more sets of these to convert to .png, upload, and post before we're caught up.

Next update commence!

Update 35 - New Cities
Spoiler:


This city needs culture to avoid being pressured by the culture of neighboring cities.


One of those Settlers I built is ready to be sent to its destination, which is that tiny little piece of land that primarily serves to force Napoleon to have to build boats in order to try to finish me off.


Gotta spread all the religions I control some more...


... so I can support all the military units I'm building.


ARE THEY MAD?! NEVER!


Now to send this missionary to do what I built it to do.


And then we shall take the final steps to build this city here.


And then we'll spread Judaism here.


Of course we're the most cultured. Everyone else is barbarians.

End Update 35.

Got to love having the most culture, so you can sneer at those uncultured boors. And Longbowmen are the best, especially when you're the first to gain access to them.

Gotta love Elizabeth. By endgame, you're ROLLIN' in the dosh AND you get the friggen REDCOATS, which make you friggen awesome in late mid. Great for cultural victories, since you can Great Library/scientist rush the necessary techs and go straight for Redcoats after that, then concentrate on culture for pretty much the rest of the game.

I doubt I was the first to get access to them, though I could be wrong. I hope I'm wrong.

I've never really been fond of playing as the English (I like to have culture generate without me having to invest too much money). Then again, I haven't really played as the English since I got the game 6 years ago.

Update should be ready hopefully by the end of next weekend!

Update 36 - Putzing about on beginning of turn things:

Spoiler:


OH LOOKIE ANOTHER LONGBOWMAN YAY.


Now we shall build ourselves Angor Wat since we could really use that production boost in all our cities.


And here, we have yet another missionary! Need that religion spread as far as possible for that income bonus!


And next on queue is still another Longbowman!


Oh, right, this thing. Gee, I wonder who I'll vote for?


And Bryansk is founded in 1410 AD! Now I have a city that Napoleon will actually have to build a ship to conquer!

That's it for Update 36!

I have open borders with EVERYONE I KNOW.

Not really sure why, either.

Update 37 - Unnecessarily Shouting:

Spoiler:


Bryansk needs to build a Theater so it can capture some more land tiles to work from Gandhi.


Just look at St. Petersburg pumping out those Longbowmen!


YAKUTSK NEEDS MOAR CULTURE.


Yay! Now future military units built in Vladivostok won't be totally useless!


But because dough is tight, we need to build us a Courthouse to keep revenue flowing in.


VERY GOOD, SMOLENSK. NOW BUILD ME A THEATER!


AW HELL NAW! I just built you! No way in hell that'll happen!


Well look at that. No surprises there! This is also why I have Open Borders with these two! I can't say no!


But we'll totally take advantage of those Open Borders while we have them. ONWARD, GOOD SETTLER!


OKAY FINE. YOU CAN HAVE OPEN BORDERS WITH ME.

End Update 37.


Alrighty then. 16 more updates to post. 15 of which still need to be uploaded to Photobucket.

No replies means I can't update as fast, people. :x I suppose I could alternate posting with this account and my alt account, but that's got some questionable standing within the rules

Update 38 - :
Spoiler:


New city in three turns!


Hmm... your offer is pretty bare, Pacal II...


... but I accept anyway because you're not really a bad guy.


Hmm... what to research? Nationalism? Or...


... Engineering? I think I like this latter one.


St. Petersburg is just being used as a Longbowmen factory, since my other cities can't produce as fast as it can.


Yes! Yakutsk can now spread its influence faster!


So we'll build a Theatre here to amplify the volume of the city's culture.


And now we have another city that shall be churning out the Longbowmen.


What?! Smolensk built a Theatre before it built a Monument?! Blasphemy! We must rectify this at once!

End Update 38.

Keep churning out those Longbows...you will need them for defense. xD

I do dislike that strategy, though. Open Borders with everyone, that is.

And I had no control over whether they received my religion or not! >:(

Yes I will... very much so.

Update 39 - :

Spoiler:


And our first order of business this update is to spread Judaism further.


Fortunately, that succeeded, and we don't need another missionary built to try again.


Napoleon, I don't know if I like this deal... and I see you've been very busy making more enemies.


This is what he's offering...


... and this is what he wants. Offering an economic tech for a religious one.


I'll take it, though. It should keep you from going to war with me for at least 10 more turns. And it'll give me more economic options for my coastal cities.


Same here! Now begone! I have a distrust of you and your warring ways!


I'm going to churn out a Missionary for economic reasons instead of yet another Longbowman.

End Update 39.


Depending on whether I get any replies, Update 40 will come either within the next 24 hours (assuming I get replies), or it will come in 3 days or so (if I don't get any replies).

I dunno, the sucky thing I've learned is that you have to suck up to the Aggressive civs unless you have overwhelming military strength since they always sacrifice economy for military which puts things at a disadvantage. xD

Or, you could, y'know, have both a power economy and a power military. Because it takes the latter to support the former and still have decent science output.

Update 40 - Meeting New People:
Spoiler:


Smolensk has a Monument! Now to have it build me some K-nig-hts.


Oh, right, I just traded for that.


And with Tver founded, I have too many cities to defend... but don't tell Napoleon that.


And of course our first order of business in this city is to build a Theatre to spread that culture!


You're weaksauce! Why are you making demands of me?


Hahahahaha I knew you were too much of a wuss to try anything.


Yay, better culture spreading! Time to build a Barracks so military units can be produced here with useful experience.


I think it's time to mix things up and build a Crossbowman instead of yet another Longbowman.


Why hello there, Bismarck! Let us have peace in our time!


Yes indeed, Bismarck. Yes indeed.

End Update 40.


I'd like to get as many updates up as I can this weekend, so keep replying so I can do so, please and thank you!

Looks like someone was spybombing you there at the end. Who might be behind that? Is it Saladin's revenge? A new kind of Napoleonic aggression? Someone entirely else?

If I had to put money on it, it's probably Napoleon. I really am not sure, though.

Update 41 - Branching Out the Military:

Spoiler:


And now it's time for another Maceman.


Finally some order can be brought to this bustling fringe town!


Now we'll give it a fairly safe economy! Though do I want to build a Grocer...


... or a Harbor? Harbor it is.


YEAH. SPREAD THAT RELIGION.


Okay, I was totally not expect St. Petersburg to not have a Theatre yet.


But I need to take advantage of its robust economy first and get a Grocer established here.


And back to building Longbowmen we go.

End Update 41.

Well you're quite right about that I guess. But ya gotta hit them early I would think...Or not overexpand too much.

I've noticed it's been fairly quiet after that war with Napoleon...any thoughts as to where the next flareup might start?

I know exactly when the next flareup will be... I just have 12 more updates including the one below in this post before I get there and can start playing this save file again.

Update 42 - NO FREEBIES FOR YOU GANDHI:

Spoiler:


NOSOUPFORYOUNOWGOAWAY.


I AM NOT A CHARITY DAMNIT.


Anyway, that economy of mine really could stand some souping up.


Especially since I keep building these guys.


Our next city should be right around here...


... damnit.


Okay, so Paper's next on the docket. Could use that University.


Really gotta amp up that science output. And the production bonus doesn't hurt, either.


Smolensk can always do better on production!


I think I'll abstain on this one. Even though I know I'll get forced to anyway.

End Update 42.


11 Updates to go! Let's see if we can get 4 updates in a single day. :P

No replies? :(

Update 43 - Saladin Takes Me for a Fool:

Spoiler:


We shall build a city here where this unit stands! And Gandhi is apparently spy-bombing me again.


And in this new city of Novosibirsk, we shall start things off by building a Theatre! The defensive unit for the city is on its way, so we've already got that covered.


You have done good, citizens of Yaroslavl!


Your next task will be to help me spread Judaism ever further!


NO.


Well that is just annoying.


WHAT DO YOU TAKE ME FOR?! A FOOL?! THAT'S HIGHWAY ROBBERY!


Now let us see if we can get a better offer out of you...


So you do take me for a fool!


No, I do not. You have nothing I need and your arrogance is starting to give me a headache. GOODBYE TO YOU, SIR.

End Update 43.

Not terribly much I can do about that at the moment, other than to ramp things up, which you'll see within the next month or so, ideally, once I get caught up on updates and get back to playing this save game (I'm only posting one update per post so as to not murder people's modems, mind).

Update 44 - At Least Somebody Doesn't Take Me for a Fool
Spoiler:


Now this is the kind of deal I like to see!


We still don't like you for gaining up on us with Napoleon in the Apostolic Palace votes. We could be better friends if you stopped doing that.


Yes! Now it's time to build the University of Sankore and hope we get it first!


Now we shall research the Printing Press in order to boost our economy.


I'm not sure what Yakutsk just finished building, but let us build a Harbor, people of Yakutsk!


And Yaroslavl is back to producing military units for us! This time it's the initimidating Maceman!


This Missionary will be sent to Bryansk so it can have its culture spread faster!


Oh snap, son! That Grocer was like an economic stimulus for our economy all by itself! Tax revenue increased by 11 whole gold per turn!


To celebrate, St. Petersburg shall build a unit of Knights!


And to wrap things up for this update, we shall be spreading Judaism to Novobirsk.

End Update 44.


45 will come later today if I get any replies. Otherwise, it won't come until next weekend.
