Morning Discussion

Good morning, class. Your task today is to study the history of PC sound devices as told by The Secret of Monkey Island. Complete your work to a satisfactory standard and I won't tell Dr. Breckon what an awful bunch of slackers you've been during his sabbatical.

      Haha. Truth be told I was really amazed to see I was last to go this morning. And the bravo server was messed up and kept going out of sync after a minute or so. I don't know how, but apparently the game says I managed to end my turn.

      Hey, does anyone know the mechanics behind what happens if two civs research a relgion on the same turn with identical beaker counts? Does it just randomly give the religion to one of the civs?

        I have no idea, in 1 player it always goes to the player, then it goes in NPC turn order, pitboss is a whole 'nother animal though.

        its random. each turn each civ gets assigned a number, and based upon the number, the person with the lower number gets the religion. that should also be how wonders work too.

          I've seen a different border in addition to your scout. I don't think they saw my unit though

            I'm sure that we can form a productive and mutually beneficial relationship especially now that you aren't two squares away from my formerly completely unprotectd city

        I know Jikim and Haxim are close, according their communication on the pitboss thread the other day. I am starting to think I am alone and isolated. :(

          Oh by the way I am going to be outside of internet coverage this weekend, any chance somebody could play my pitboss turn on Saturday?

            I know it's obvious, but I'd suggest someone from the Alpha/Bravo games who isn't playing in ours :)

            Goncyn might be a good candidate since he hosts the servers.

        yeah, my scouting Chinese warrior ran into the border of a fellow Chinese civilization. Rumor is that his warrior was fleeing from lions.

        We look forward to peace and prosperity in this all-Chinese continent.

      i had a question... my 1st city has 1 population, and it's showing 0 food in the "population growth" bar... is this normal? Because clearly the tiles being worked on should give me 4 food per turn

      I also see the production bar showing 1 hammer and 3 food per turn... wtf is going on? why is my food being used for production, instead of population growth? Did I click something wrong?

        if you're building a settler or worker, the surplus food goes into the production of the worker/settler.
