First of all:

If your name is either Marsden, DenyD, or Cyc:

This is not meant for your eyes....

So get out of here.....

This is for other lurkers exclusively....

Nice To keep a spoiler Calis. Can you tell us something about the kind'a game you're playing? TIA. :)

So, now we can start...

Regarding the name: The players of this match are all in the SABER team of the C3C MTDG II over at CFC.

Here is the Roster in the playing order:

Cyc - Carthage
DenyD - Sumeria
Calis - Netherlands
Marsden -Byzantines

The map was created by Killercane, who actually asked for a spoiler thread and I want to fulfill this wish here...

A few turns have passed already and the year is 3450BC:

Here is a pic of the situation:

The starting units were 2 settlers, 2 workers and a scout.

I founded Amsterdam right on the spot. Now it's surrounded by forests and is a coastal city as it should be for a seafaring civ...

You already can see where Rotterdam lies. Also coast and also surrounded by forrest, jungle, water...

Amsterdam produced a curragh right away and I used a forest chop to speed it up as I wanted grassland anyway...the curragh is exploring the seas already, but didn't find anything, yet.

Three out of the four tribes are seafaring and start with Alphabet. Nonetheless I continued with writing and will try to do the slingshot towards Republic. While I am writing this I remember that in the pre-game discussion we (or I) proposed to make it an AW match, but I cannot remember whether we decided to do it or not. I asked in the turn tracker thread, as this of course may change the Republic thing

I am getting old I fear...

Ok that's it for the moment

Any comments and/or questions are welcome of course!!

My! You are a quick one Beam...

19-10-2008, 20:11
Thanks. ;)

Do you plan to build a settler factory in A'dam. And what lvl are you playing?

19-10-2008, 20:17
Yes, Amsterdam is definately going to be a settler factory. I'll be able to chop forests to speed up the granary.

The level is Regent, so the AI won't be much of a threat...

Wow, civ3... [worship]

It is no always war game, so I'll try to get Republic via the slingshot...

Next turn two workers will complete. As there is so much forest directly next to my first towns, I regarded workers as high priority, although my military advisor already reports barbs near Rotterdam.

I didn't mention yet that we are playing on an archipelago map with 60% water...

Just a brief screeny...

Are you sure about that Curragh in R'dam instead of a defense unit? Long time ago I played C3C btw so might be a stupid question.

I thought about your idea, but then recognized that I do not have spearmen available...

I'll take the risk and go with the curagh. I son't want to waste the chop with a warrior...

Here is an update:

I met Marsden(Byzantines) & Cyc (Carthage)

Next turn I'll get a settler and will place the new city next to the wines to connect them quickly.

I am No. 1 in GNP which let's me hope for Philosophy--> Republic...

This game died, as Marsden just got lost...
