I just focus on putting it in a good city spot. And it's not all that hard to defend. (b'-')b

Not sure what to do about France. On the one hand, Paris is pretty far away from Moscow, on the other hand the little corporal is among the worst persons to have as neighbors in this game. Having a hill city being the only city on a short border and stacking units in there would be ideal I think.

Also going to try the map myself now, it's not like I've got anything better to do:)

Fun game so far. What do the AIs love to say again...?

BOW BEFORE THE MIGHT OF MY HORSE ARCHER - in this case I'm meaning the plural form, of course.

Killed Gandhi, then went for Napoleon and Joao almost simultaneously. The former is down to one city I am going to take in about three turns once my main forces have healed up in Paris, from the latter I took only one city and then sued for peace (got a tech and some gold) because he started building spears and an ugly stalemate began. Going to redeclare when peace ends, my current forces in Coimbra are WAY stronger than what I had in the first Portuguese war.
I do have an unhappiness problem, I think bad micro is to blame. I'm ahead in tech despite all the warmongering and the fact that I haven't used a Scientist for a single turn yet and Genghis is at war with Joao, so... Looking good.
The Settler in StP is going to settle the tundra north of Rostov, to block off Saladin from all the land in the west that will be entirely mine once Lyons falls.
Huge size and no barbarians is a really interesting variation I must say, huge makes warring harder, but no barbarians allows you to neglect your defenses, meaning entirely focusing on something like a Horse Archer war becomes possible.

Huh. Didn't know that. I was pretty certain it worked all the time.

We'll find out in a later update what I did or didn't do about France.

Okay! It's a pretty interesting map.

Holy hell you work fast. I'm waaaaaay too passive in my gameplay. You'll find out what I mean in a later update.


Game 1 Update 4: New Places, Funny Hats, and Bald Guys


Hahaha look at his funny pointy hat! I totally wanna ask him if I can try it on. :B

NEW FOLLOWERS! I COMMAND THEE TO BUILD A NEW SETTLEMENT! Nononono! No numbers at the end of the name! >:O

That's more like it!

This place needs more improvements! Create a force of Workers!

You! Protect this place! >:O

I also met a funny lookin' bald guy with glasses. Claims his name is Gandhi and calls his place India. :V

End Update 4.

Game 1 Update 5: Finally Got a Religion This Game

I'm bored of the clueless leader ruse, so I'm just gonna post it how it is.


I HAVE A RELIGION FINALLY! That's basically a win condition in Civ IV. :V


I think I'm gonna go for the technology that gets me those BACON MINES.

Waitaminute did I just find another goodie hut? Cool! Need all the gold I can get early on.

And now that the anarchy is over, we can resume normal production: A worker, and The Oracle. B)
