The Giant Civ 6 AAR: Nubia, Part XVII

Barbarians everywhere last time, but also The Pyramids

C’mon Back.

We know there’s nothing on that peninsula, so come back where you’re useful.

The “Real” View.

In case you’re wondering what the full 3d view of the game would look like, here’s my capital with The Pyramids in the back left, my Nubian Pyramid up front, and the damaged cornfields in the back right with the workers about to go to town on them.  The salt mines are behind the city.

 

civ6-Nubia
“North of Canada, West of Buenos Aires.”

is a statement that only makes sense in the context of a Civ game

 

civ6-Nubia
Ever the Polite One.

But yes, we do have a lot of troops near their no-longer-open borders, so let’s back off a bit, eh?

 

civ6-Nubia
Hey, You’re New.

That city-state boat that just floated up is from someone we hadn’t met.

 

civ6-Nubia
Bottom Right Corner.

We’ve met a new city-state!

 

civ6-Nubia
Fez.

It’s across the sea, where I can’t get to yet because I’ve got no boats in the water, but there’s also another civ over there somewhere nearby because their diplomatic governor is already there.

 

civ6-Nubia
Check It Out.

If I mouse over the governor’s faded portrait, it tells me this.

 

civ6-Nubia
Fixit Guys!

With my worker on my damaged fields, I can hit the “repair” icon – the wrench on the bottom right – to clean up the mess.

 

civ6-Nubia
There.

All better.

 

civ6-Nubia
The Other Southern Scout.

He was just chilling and healing, but because he’s adjacent to a Canadian border, I need to move him.

 

civ6-Nubia
Scout, Scoot!

So let’s move him 1 hex away and then put him back into fortify-until-healed mode.

 

civ6-Nubia
Ditto.

Need to move this guy away from any borders, too.  I’m going to roll the dice and automate him, though (bottom right again).

 

civ6-Nubia
Industry!

Adjacent to my capital is a furs resource, and because I have several of those improved, I now have the option t build an “industry” on that space – basically a super-improvement – so we’re going to move our builder over that way

 

civ6-Nubia
Mwuahahaha.

I can now work with iron.

 

civ6-Nubia
Still Clearing.

I want as much of the map revealed as possible.

 

civ6-Nubia
Healed.

Now get back to scouting and go open up the map over that way, please.

 

civ6-Nubia
The Wide View.

The map around Georgia is pretty clear, and they’re not really any more numerous than I am.  There’s a couple of mountain ranges hemming them in, but those ranges are also keeping the Canadians at bay further South, too.

 

Let’s see what we can build when we get serious about building
