BTW, your HTML implementation leaves something to be desired. Non-stupid browsers (Netscape, Opera) render the .txt file as text, without images. IE renders the HTML, but doesn't wrap long lines so you have to scroll back and forth to read it. I had to resort to saving it locally as an .html file and applying some CSS trickery to wrap long lines, then it was readable in Opera.
Obviously an OCC isn't directly comparable to a full game, but you did very well with only the one city. Excellent management of military while building wonders, for the whole game. Very intricate military campaigns; controlling a third of the map as an OCC is quite impressive. You didn't get a whole lot of Great Leaders, but you got them when you needed them and made very good use. And excellent management of the economy later, using every trick in the book to grab monopoly techs and cash in big, right up to a very close finish. Sounds like it would've actually been more fun to play an OCC than the military sandbag I did.
I did say who the opponents were in the initial post. No Iroquois.
2110 English start Oracle when I have one turn left on Colossus.
2070 Complete road of horses into Kyoto at the same time as we complete the Oracle.
1150 London completes Oracle.
I'm going to guess that the middle one was a typo, and you built the Colossus, not the Oracle?
Yeah, the Colossus is indeed the most important wonder
I leave Englands borders twitching pointing fingers to the spluttering swordsman just about to attack.
India is now modern. I do not understand how they got all those techs so fast. Perhaps AIs are not limited to four turns per tech.
AIs have that same limit, I'm pretty sure. AIs do have a habit of pulling massive gold/turn payments to buy techs as soon as their previous ones expire. And of course multiple AIs can research different techs simultaneously and trade.
I discover I need 32 slave workers to chop a forest and replace with a mine.
The english could expand to their third ring of tiles, in spite of me having that row of tiles in my fourth row. I thought only first and second row had could do this.
This was changed sometime; I think it was at the release of PTW. A city with third-ring cultural control of a tile will now take precedence over another city that has it in fourth-ring. I've known this for some time, though it is a subtle point.
Again, well played and very impressive! I can't wait for Charis to come in as well - did he also play OCC?
