Re: longest 2v2 i've ever played

Why didn't you fight for water? Brits can and should go water. And even if Dutch gives a good fight at sea, Brits + Russia going water can easily outpower Dutch + France.

Re: Tests to find the REAL Mill base gathering rates

I'm done.

So, just for the hell of it, I tried running the exact same experiment a third time, again with synchv on, just to... I don't even know, compare results a third time.
And there we go, exact same scenario, civ, villies, farms, etc etc... I didn't change a single damn thing. The villie placem .....

It means like a 5-10 difference for the tp travois, so perhaps it affects other animations too.

Re: Tests to find the REAL Mill base gathering rates

I tested rice paddies in the morning and it all points to a fixed 0.5, because villies never walk and never bump into each other. I will do farms next, altho I think same thing applies since I don't really recall watching farm villies walking around in my games.

Also I will do the test on 9 villies a .....

Tests to find the REAL Mill base gathering rates

Everyone already knows that villies don't actually gather 0.67 food on mills. They walk. Hence the real base gathering rate is somewhere around ~0.5 food/sec.

But wait, there's more! Most players already know by now that they not only walk around, they also bump into each other! That means the base g .....
