    • A short guide so that people can decipher the jibberish being spouted.

      Ha happiness
      g gold

      Labour refers to a cities pop points. A size two city has two labour to assign.

      Se settler
      Wo worker
      Wa warrior
      sk skirmisher

      Numbers as directions: the numbers refer to the keypad on a keyboard. 8 is due north, 2 is south, 4 west, 6 east, and so on. 88 is two tiles north.

      Labour refers to a cities pop points. A size two city has two labour to assign. Also refered to as wf or work force by some people and teams.

      People are free to suggest alternatives. This is simply so that all of us have an easier time following discussions. If these are accepted, they can be posted in the forum guide.

      • some questions though:
        - why not use "citizens" (instead of "labourers") when speaking of citizens?
        - A "peon labourer" is a citizen who doesn't work (but does cost food)?
        - What about adding:
        pro production,
        GP Great Person,
        GA Great Artist,
        GM Great Merchant,
        GPr Great Priest and
        GS for Great Scientist

        Good thing the game has finally started! I had almost forgot my being a breeze in this Storm about to Gather

              Works too... this is a guide to understand nye (and some others ), not a directive you've got to follow
              - A "peon labourer" is a citizen who doesn't work (but does cost food)?

              yeah, a citizen who doesn't work but costs food. However, these are the 'general' specialists, which don't give any GPp, but 1 hpt. Peons are different from unhappy citizens, who cost food but don't work at all.

              - What about adding:
              pro production,
              GP Great Person,
              GA Great Artist,
              GM Great Merchant,
              GPr Great Priest and
              GS for Great Scientist

              GPr Great Prophet (priest is the specialist, prophet the GP)

              Further, I'd like to add that we generally
              add 'p' for 'points', and
              add 'pt' for 'per turn'

              (so 2 GPrppt means 2 Great Prophet points per turn)

              • I suppose it is too much to ask people to simply type what they mean?

                    AH! So this would be a directive for NYE (and others) to follow then!

                    Of course... just a few billion believers would be somewhat offended when I'd call Jesus an Mohammed nothing but priests (though GREAT priests at that. I guess.)

                    I suppose it is too much to ask people to simply type what they mean?
                    For some (me) that would be difficult enough to understand as it is...

                    • We are needed.

                      In a previous thread to gather people for the CIV ISDG there was less than overwhelming interest. Many of the usual demogame suspects have joined teams on other sites. The Horde have gone en masse to CGN. Most of the Mercs and some of Sarantum are at MZO. Many others may be fatigued, and some may not be happy with the organisation of the C3C ISDG.

                      BigFree has been doing what he can do get a civ group started and a private forum, but MarkG may have doubts that there are many on Poly who are interested in playing against 13 other sites. Is he right? I think not. Let's show 'em!

                        • nye, would it be possible to update the sim again? I finally have some time this weekend to play out a couple of scenarios, and it looks like we're at a decision point...

                          Otherwise, I'll just use what's available, I'm sure it can give a good idea
