Re: ranking

The game is great and I am the first time to it, it should be said that I got something about the game principle. I have a stupid question, is it possible to rank every item in the top 5. I play with 19 novice AIs and report siad a lot items in rank 15 to 20, How to change these completely. Yes, I ...

Re: when the workers can irrigate the fields without water s

They can't. An adjacent tile to the one you're irrigating must have river, lake, ocean, or irrigation -- and real irrigation, the automatic irrigation bonus of cities doesn't count, though you can irrigate a city tile to bring the water explicitly through.

Re: Why city stops production

We'd need more description, preferably screencaps, to know what you're talking about. At least, I have no idea.

Re: Why great library is so hard

I went directly from Alphabet to Code of Laws and Writing (and Bronze Working ),then to Literacy, and I found AI is 15turns ahead before to complete Literacy to start to build the Great Library, how to solve? Well, you're making a detour to Bronze Working; the AI might not be. But also, I think the...

Re: Additional Government Types

The new civ2civ3 ruleset has Fundamentalism and Federation as available governments (from the techs Theology and Economics.) Oh, and Tribal as a starting alternative to Despotism. The Ancients ruleset, which you have to get elsewhere, has Ancient Democracy, Imperial Monarchy, Petty Monarchy, Princip...

Re: How to defend against battleships and howitzers

Thanks! i did not discover this before because I always put my cities on plains or forests or hills for greater production. Using grassland instead (for faster growth) is much more attractive now that I can transform the grassland into hills. I'm pretty sure grassland is optimal for city placement ...

Re: Republic

I've never had problems fighting the AIs with Democracy. Yeah, happyborders usually on. But also Shakespeare's Theatre for the city producing naval units, so they don't cause unhappiness. J. S. Bach's Cathedral. Decent luxury rate. Have strongly defended cities and concentrate your expeditionary for...

Re: A bit of my strategy in Single Player

But all those tutorials are for version 2.1 or earlier, and there have been major changes since then, especially in tech development. Tech costs used to be a function of how many techs you had, so racing for Monarchy or Republic made sense. Now (2.3 and later) it's a function of the depth in the tec...

Re: Ulgh the pirates

Yeah, barbarians mean that even on an Island game, I try to make sure my cities are well defended by turn 60 (or later: server setting) when the barbs appear. City wall and even one phalanx give a lot of defense, unless you've got hordes (which turns out to mean lots of barbarians in one place) comi...

Re: Why don't AI's air units attack us ?

I've played a bunch under 2.3, some under 2.4, never seen air units or submarines. Do see battleships, if they get far enough. Don't think I've seen spies. I've lost single units to diplomat bribes, but never a city.
