  • OCC Size 1

    Having read Samson's post about size 4 OCC I decided to have as he suggested with a size 1 city. Anyone who wants a go can get it here. I saved it as a scenario since I had to change the specials from a random map to gold and wine. Choose the Enochlophobians and go NE. I managed to land in 1900 but had a little knowledge of the map around the meridian. I'll post the log later.

    have fun,

    Oh, that tops it (however temporary). Congratulations. BTW, was Darwins really necessary, or did you just have nothing else to do?

    One more thing, nice name: Midgit .
    I don't have much to say 'cause I won't be here long.

      Well I guess I knew it was possible but i didn't expect such quick results. Heck i just posted on how i thought it would be possible like 2 days ago. I wonder if it being a scenario will put doubt on the validity of this acheivement. I don't know what the dif is from scenario to normal but i think the turns are dif are they not. Congrats anyways on a good game. Did you mine the city b4 settling and put it on the gold as I suggested?

        Yep, I mined the gold and put my city there, it was slightly closer to the other civs and had better defense. Its a bit easier as a scenario since I believe you can research any available tech. This was 2.42 BTW, extracted 12500g from the AI.

        Loner the Mad 29%.

        Research was takng about 6 turns when I built Darwin's and I wanted to get to Automobile quicker.

          Give us the highlights, if not the log.

          BTW, I started a size1 game myself. Random map using a gold mine and river city square.
          I goofed around expecting to find it was impossible, but did well enough
          to convince myself otherwise.

          Two specials on a small map (faster research). That's the ticket.

            The big difference with scenarios vs regular save is the tech path.In scenarios you can research directly without having to "fill in"
            ie Monarchy needs Burial,alpha and laws.But you need 1 other.Not so in a scenario.Some of us have gotten a little spoiled by the directness of some of the fortnights.
            The only thing that matters to me in a MP game is getting a good ally.Nothing else is as important.......Xin Yu

              OK Here's the log.

              Only 6 civs started. I guess the computer couldn't find anywhere to put the purples. Orange civ got taken out early too (twice before it couldn't restart). Got down to a tech every 4 turns a best. Had to give away all techs up to and including Fusion Power to get enough money together.

                  EOL - That was an amazing game and a fine achievement. You managed your trade very capably. I'm just thinking how much those Gold freights to Tenochtitlan would have brought in with a larger city!

                      Congratulations, I can hardly believe you did this! Step forward the guy who said that OCC was impossible...

                      This weekend I really have to try this OCC thing.

                        Thanks SG's, I don't think there is a huge amount of micromanagement to this game since you basically have to run at max science just about all the time and luxuries are useless. I don't think there's any point in delivering caravans with non-demanded goods after your first 3 routes are down (unless it causes a change in commodity next time) since you get much less gold than it costs to rush-build them. I wouldn't fancy trying it using MGE though. You really need the tribute to build the caravans when you only generate 7 shields (after railroad).
