I'm getting excited. Seed and I should be making contact in another 5 or so turns, and I'm about to surround that other city thing to my west. Whatever that is.
So how does implementing metal tools work? Do i have to find the minerals first, then learn how to smelt them, then turn them into tools? Or do i just research it and then if it passes I just can use it?
Tools are default. They're the first thing your people make with new metal. Weapons must be researched.
So do i just find copper and instant tools?
It's not really instant since these turns encompass 500 years but essentially yes. [editline]18th February 2012[/editline] Tools become a moot point once Metal is found. Now, later on you can research actual construction equipment and stuff like mine carts and shit.
I can't wait until our civilizations encounter each other Sobotnik. It's going to be so much fun!
-The church of Bruzzili encourages people to cut down trees to release the god Bruzzili from his prison. Lumber industry builds. Can you hear the huehuehuehue coming?
Can't remember whether or not i sent in turn..?
Nope

Working on the turn now. Will be done around 10pmish
Eh, tell us the hours left until 10 PM, We don't know your timezone.
