Topic Subject:The Perfect Settings For Each Civ
posted 11-24-98 08:58 PM ET (US)         
A large part of every game revolves around the initial settings choson. I am curious about everyones opinion on what each Civs Ideal Settings are. In other words, if you had to use a certain civ in a 1v1 game, but could chose any settings, what settings would you chose for that civ to maximize your chances of victory(dont take into account your opponents civ, whatever it would be.) Obviously Cheats and set scenarios would not be an option. But things like land type, DM or RM, starting age, reveal map,resources, fixed positions, Standard or Conquest, and population should definately be included. Im curious about each civ (yes, even greece .)
Ill List my choices when I have more time. If a setting is default for that civ you could just leave it out. Remember, these are settings that you think this civ thrives on, not what is just fun.

For all civs I like Nomad Start
For Hittie, Assirian, or Persian
Coastal or Large Island
Medium Resources
any size map

For other slow civs
Inland or Highland
Medium Resources
Large or Huge maps

For fast civs
Small Islands
High Resources
Medium or Small maps

Have not played ROR but a Gig map sounds Great for Greece or Presia.

actually Ive played palmyra with quite a bit of success on default resources, I still manage to tool and iron faster than most opponants

but ideal palmy settings is

medium resources, medit map, large, pop anything (its good to have vills that pull in more resources but dont take up as much space!)
3v3 or 4v4 helps too
palmy in a team game even with default resources is really good, and dont gimme any of that "stop playing with newbies" crap, because a majority of my games are with good players

Palmy is an excellent iron rusher on a medit map with medium resources, which is why i almost always play palmy on that setting...
