Let’s Play Civilization 6 Rise and Fall – Immortal Germany – Ep. 1 – Early Barbarians!

Let’s Play Civilization 6 Rise and Fall – Immortal Germany – Ep. 1 – Early Barbarians!


hello everyone tymerover here and today
we are going to start a new a let’s play series for Civilization six so we’re
still on rise and fall expansion there is a new civilization six expansion
called gathering storm which is due to release next month but I kind of wanted
to get in here prior to gathering storms released just
to play around with it because it’s been a while since I played some sips X and
so I know there’s a lot of mechanics that will be changing in gathering store
while a lot of mechanics I know there are going to be mechanics that are
changed and added and so on and so forth in the next expansion I’m looking
forward to starting a fresh series when that comes out but for right now I kind
of wanted to play a little sieve today so we’re gonna go ahead and do that I’m
not sure how many episodes this will contain that we may end up being cut off
when the new expansion releases if that happens that happens we’ll see but we’re
gonna go ahead I’m gonna just do a single-player game we’re gonna go ahead
and create a new game I’m gonna just use the rule set for rise and fall we’re
gonna do a random leader here and we’ll see how how that goes in terms of JD
that Dame game difficulty we’re gonna go on immortal and standard speed I think
is fine Maps I’m gonna do a shuffle just basically randomize the map type I think
that’s gonna be okay and we’re gonna go ahead and do a map size of small which
will dictate how many other civilizations we got going I can’t I’m
not sure what the the amount is I think yeah so one two so six I guess six total
players but we’re gonna go back and just go with that I believe that’s how many
are on the the small map size um and then yeah we’re going to go ahead and
just hit game a start or start game but yeah I had a from the first stirrings of
life beneath water to the great beasts of the Stone Age
to man taking his first upright steps you have come far now begins your
greatest quest from this early cradle of civilization on towards the Stars heroic
Frederic king of the Germans your task is to forge the independent states that
surround you into an empire you are blessed to be a great military
leader use those skills to bring these cities under your sway so that they may
develop into commercial and industrial powerhouses surely then the bards will
sing their mighty Frederick with their red beard the Great Holy Roman Emperor all right so I’ve never actually played
as Germany I’ve played against them they always go after city-states I know that
and they’re usually pretty militaristic hmm but obviously they have a special
ability Holy Roman Emperor military slaw an additional military slot we get +7 a
combat strength when attacking city-states so hey there you go free
Imperial cities each city can build one more district than usual exceeding the
normal limit based on population so additional district down the line that’s
pretty nice we’ll get a unique boat to naval unit the u-boat which is pretty
good and the Hansa which ok so it’s a replacement for the industrial district
and by the looks of it so that’s gonna be interesting we’re gonna go ahead and
just let’s hit start game and see where we fall all right not bad got a really
good start actually got a bunch of food I got some stone here could potentially
make a run for a religion and try to go after stone heads you got stone and a
adjacency of flat land flat grassland but I’ve honestly that might be a little
hard to do I have had other let’s play series for Civ 6 but some of them ended
up getting cut off here and there I think our last series was with Mongolia
we were getting pretty far into it well for my series getting pretty far into it
but unfortunately I sort of lost that save especially recently but I think in
general so we’re just starting this new one and playing his Germany we got it
looks like we got some desert up north can’t really tell yet what kind of map
we are but you know we could have could be Islands I mean there’s water over
here is this ocean tile yeah coast well this Coast and Lake so that they are late so we could have
that the the late map was it fractured fractured you can’t remember what it’s
called but could be a number of those but we’ll go around and try to try to
figure that out with a scout later on in terms of starting position I I think
we’re pretty well here I mean we got a ton of food to deal with we won’t mess
around with that but the city should grow we don’t really have any very many
Hills so we might have a little slow production at first although having the
stone will help with the production in the long run but yeah I’m kind of liking
that we will get to this wheat here just for whatever reasons I’m gonna go ahead
and you know just scoot up here and see where we’re at but yeah now I think
though no problem with just founding the city right in place boom
Eureka and we got the coastal city as well which is pretty nice indeed
just out of curiosity knew it might have been there’s something to be said about
high tailing and down here or something along those lines because this could be
a one tile area where we could have a canal city down the line which in the
next expansion in gathering storm that’s actually going to be a thing now is
building canals alright so we got the boost to sailing because we found in a
coastal city which is fantastic couple things we gotta get started on some
research so if we look around we got some stone the rice we can just I
believe farm that’s the Manimal husbandry that we’re gonna move to hmm I
mean quarries are probably the better option because we do have the soon we’re
gonna want to try to get to that fairly quickly although I do like to sort of
beeline to archery however if we could get to astrology we could try to get a
found a great profit or get a great profit through stone hedge but again
very difficult to do on higher difficulties not impossible
I almost want to say we did get I can’t remember now I I thought for some reason
my Mongolia Gabe I did get Stonehenge but that was a that was a one level down
m per maybe difficulty so I’m not sure but now I think we can go ahead and get
bronze worki or not mock bronze working mining I was looking at bronze working
but yeah I go with mining because we have that stone right there I think
that’s gonna be fine we might switch out of it if we end up
finding a natural wonder and maybe actually take that as a cue we should
try to go after a stone hedge but anyway we got that code of laws is gonna end in
15 turns we don’t do anything there in terms of what are we gonna build first
well couple different things usually on harder difficulties that I found is
depending on how close you are to the AI in my my couple test games that I ran
before we’re deciding to do this series I lucked out in that the city-states
were nearby and they took the brunt of the a is beat down because on higher
difficulties the AI starts with different things more texts more units
more settlers and all that stuff so they’re very quick to target you and
come after you in higher difficulties but if you have closeby neighbors of
city-states than they’re you know less likely to do that so you know we may not
have to rush towards a warrior or slinger we maybe can go ask out into a
slinger or something along those lines and of course we could always get the
Builder as well our production is kind of crap but we are gonna grow fairly
quickly here just out of curiosity oh right yeah we’re not starting by fresh
water either which is going to be a huge bummer and I see no I can’t see that
anymore I don’t think we had doesn’t look like we had any fresh water because
there’s no rivers and the coastal tiles are just you know half
you know coastal waters just +1 housing instead of the +3 for me that you get
from fresh water so yeah it doesn’t look like we could have moved into that realm
what uh I don’t know I guess wait until neighborhoods and so on and so forth to
increase our housing cap which is a shame um so um yeah let’s let’s do ahead
we’ll start with a scout and started queue up a slinger i am using the c q UI
mod if you want if you’re wondering why my interface is a little different
that’s the only mod I’m running but it just changes the interface a little bit
and gives you access to information that you had before as well as additional
sort of like filters and lenses that you didn’t have before
in the general vanilla setup and so on so forth so that’s what we’re doing
policy change that I believe is a reminder food through CQ UI as well next
turn alright so we’re gonna keep shuffling around here well that’s a late
so that would be fresh water and not a bad location too for a city somewhere
around here we’ll keep going around this way next turn you know let’s scoot around here John
Curtin hello John Australia we see let’s go ahead and skip you yes it’s an honor
to meet you buddy you would love to sample your hospitality and you’re right
next door alright well we’re gonna change things
up a bit we are gonna go ahead and start on that slinger right away because I
have a feeling we are gonna be targeted early on so let’s go with that alright
and most likely he’s gonna forward he’s gonna come up here and settle up this
way so we’re gonna have to probably looking at in a very early war to to
take out of Canberra yeah having having very little in terms of production
is not gonna be super great to do doesn’t look like we’re on an island of
course well we may not be on an island but we do definitely have barbarians
down here so if it is an island yeah we’re gonna we’re gonna get attacked
here see the scouts gonna run back to the camp and start spawning additional
units so we’re gonna have to hightail it back with the warrior in order to
protect our city I don’t think we’re on an island I guess we were down here yeah
see it’s not an island does breakaway here when you find yourself in a hole
mining is done I am actually going to be line to archery so let’s get em
husbandry up and so on and so forth go ahead jump on this hill hey there’s the
warrior so the encampment for the barbarians is probably right around here
I may just leave my warrior up on this hill to get the defensive boost and they
have to come through here and I might sidestep eventually to kill you’re
running not in the direction I thought you were going let’s drop down yeah look
at there’s another barbarian warrior oof ooh there we go
all right let’s let’s pop up here we’ll try to take them out one at a time and
try to do that ello Indonesia Queen and protector those who fought us weak
litter those who thought us weak litter the ocean floor okay then Indonesia sure
let’s be friends and you came from over here so there
must be a connection down by John by Australia very interesting
all right yeah you’re just going to fortify in place our slinger is almost
done we are gonna want to try to get a kill with that slinger in order to get
the boost to artery which is gonna be useful go ahead and just fortify up
that’s gonna be fine separates it from law and justice civic
is done um foreign trade let’s take a look here what do we want to head into
early empire we got some traditions kind of want craftsmen for the boost towards
in the Calvary and range units typically I you know there’s something to be said
about going for early empire we might soft you know soft construct this until
excuse me until the we get the boost to it because we will I just don’t know
when we’ll see what we can do Indonesian Scout all right we do get
that extra military slot which is pretty nice we’ll take that urban planning or
got well let’s get God King so that we so we can get the Pantheon started or
get to the Pantheon as soon as possible delegation is most welcome Australia
sure all right well we didn’t get to kill with the slinger but mmm that’s
fine do you want to get the Scout or work towards a builder it would be
helpful to try to get this set up in fact we’re not actually working it I’m
gonna lock that tile so we get some more production I probably should have done
that sooner but now we’re working off of a little
better production format here do we get the Builder scout would be useful but
now I think we’re gonna have to go into another slinger fortify up next this
slinger is most likely gonna come over here and yeah just start pounding away
at my warrior unfortunately you are going to I don’t think you’re gonna be
able to move and shoot what I might do is just pop down here we lose the high
ground but I want to get the I want to get my slinger they killed well yeah we
already did it but I guess I could have swapped them out I don’t think it’s a
huge issue all right you are going to run up and whack him and I’m not sure
well there’s a chance you get kill on let’s see if we get the lucky all right
excellent archery has been advanced fantastic and so now I can get my
warrior back on the hill and be happy about that
actually got a nice net little natural bottleneck here so things are in decent
shape apparently another barbarian Scout has awoke in from Heights I mean they
will get the the bonus so you know what let let us go up here I think that’s
gonna be fine fortify up next turn and then we’re just gonna keep
fortifying and let this warrior soak the damage and hopefully they stop they stop
spawning these guys and you know we get something I got a promotion gonna take
battle cry make you more effective fighter there yeah these guys are just
gonna start well this guy not so much we are gonna have to run at him here we
could retreat you know what let’s do that we’ll do the with the slingers
because they they don’t actually faceplant on us so we’re gonna have to
you know take care of that the old-fashioned way
really you backed off okay you avoid the smaller shores such differences noted
and well-regarded okay all right I do want to end there so
let’s go ahead and hit this guy and then see if we can nosh sugar didn’t actually
beat him oh well uh okay all right go ahead and whack him you you know what
I’m fine with letting you fortify because they can’t come up onto this
hell they’re gonna get the bonus which kind of does suck
but it will allow me to get more experience I guess on my units here you
are gonna plop over here you’re gonna have fire fire
and then crush and then you’re back on top there excellent
most welcome meanwhile John Curtin looks like he’s already settled another city
or just bought up this area here really what one two three how did he get this I’m confused
oh no he got it one two three yeah that’s the farthest he could go out
there alright that’s fine might actually get a settler what are we
at money-wise okay I think I’m gonna buy a builder next turn and get this hooked
up and try to expedite that in terms of technology we’ve got the three
barbarians so let’s go for bronze working you are going to fortify up
fortify and we do have the ability to upgrade these guys as well to archers
and maybe that’s what we want to do you know what let’s do the Builder thing
here yeah the scout and the settler and all
that and then I’m actually going to upgrade our archers boom and boom huge
boost in overall power go down here can you fire on this guy yes can boom get
the kill and the experience and then fortify up and fortify I do know there’s
something to be said about not taking the Scout right now and maybe we
shouldn’t you can actually come over here and then put the beat down on that
slinger now excellent but I do want it to go up here and start scouting and
then we’ll get out working on the Builder and so on and so forth you can
go ahead and do that you actually well we could start moving forward try to
clear out the things and then you’re gonna go
ahead and just promote we will take the land units that’s fine yeah we’re
getting delayed here with all this shenanigans of the barbarian settler
yeah we’re already starting to get issues over here as well as another
barbarian encampment oh so annoying and that’s gonna be really annoying right
there I was gonna take this as my second city but now we got loyalty issues over
there so yeah how do you why are you over
there stop what all right we’ll just have to take out Australia okay and then yeah you’re gonna run up
there and get started on the builders oh my gosh another barbarian encampment I might send this guy up there to take it
out or just slowing us down all right you head back to the city and
start working your way up there you’re gonna fortify up you are going to Wow
tell you what just go ahead and take him out and then you can fire on those guys
all right well we run up there so we are sort of on an island ish if anything it
is sort of an archipelago ish China thing you just kill that guy you are
gonna fortify there you’re gonna work your way up here and I guess I’m gonna
just send you sort of scouting down there and I think that’s gonna be fine
and yeah we got to put a cut in the video keep going up forward here you’re
gonna just rest a little bit more pop up here bolt good stuff inspiration isn’t
married indeed we probably should retreat on way run away little Scout run
away are we gonna go I need to sort of head back to the to the base now oh dear
me dear me yeah we really need to get that builder up in order to buy or not
buy it but get this stone set up so we have some sort of semblance of production just out of curiosity what
are we reaching towards this why I guess to get to the wheat I suppose all right take that guy out and then
we’ll try to meet do with it down the line here mmm
foreign trade next turn all right so those guys were probably in the base is
this two movement no I’m not going to be able to hit over that so I think I am
gonna retreat and then just fortify and then you’re gonna pop in there get the
ear score four clear in the camp and then move on back and we know we’re
completely isolated up there we’re gonna have to sort of push this way I’m not
sure yet what’s down here but I’m guessing there’s probably more
connections there and I guess this guy’s just gonna go ahead and put you in the
city to fortify up so you can heal until our troops can come back to the front
and do all that ah all right yes that’s fine
next turn definitely have to put any cut though hello all you people all right
you’re gonna move out you are going to move into the city to protect it you are
going to I guess start removing down there you are you’re gonna run that way fortunately let’s go ahead and pop you
right there and then fortify up and that’s gonna be fine out all right go
ahead shoot shoot and let’s get the Scout coming down here just to see where
things are next huh okay that’s what I thought would happen and just fortify
you there yeah go ahead and take him out and pop
out of the city and bombard not bombard but fire and one more turn
oh he’s these stupid barbarians elves he’s the man he didn’t really hurt all
that much I’m actually gonna get you to come over here and Fire take the kill
and then I’m going to promote you to more land strength excellent and then
let’s just pop and clear this out and then call it a day fig at this saline
since we got the boost choose Pantheon we got a lot of sea resources around I
don’t think there’s anything for rice we’ve got a couple pastures that we can
make there’s some sheep up north again this is gonna be a kind of a very small
build here I think we I go with god of the sea though found this pantheon we’re
gonna have a number of resources on these islands so we’re gonna go with
that next turn and then just clear out that jam easy
Thank You excellent excellent excellent we’ve got two turns until the Builder
can ieave I can’t buy a settler I could buy a builder but it’s not gonna happen
alright let’s start working our way over to this camp as well as I just want to
get over there with my archers I might once we get the once we get
foreign-trade done well we could move switch to military tactics since we do
you know what let’s do that since we do have the boost for it I don’t know if
we’re gonna discover another continent at the moment you know what you can come
over here and start scouting this route I’m gonna get my warrior to start
heading back to town because I think what we’ll do is just try to inch up
towards this barbarian encampment and try to take it out filters coming in
you’re done let’s keep going over here you got some random person there and
over there Corey it up should help with production
by much but it’s something all right and then we’ll probably just send you to set
up the the rice and so on so forth pretty far away from getting this fish
actually I don’t know pastors might have been better to take for the Pantheon you
get there you’re going to fire and then you’re gonna pop they’re use up all your
movement goodbye fortify up because that guy’s probably gonna attack there we go
and it looks like this is a island in of itself so this is pretty safe we will
probably be able to get a settler down here fairly quickly but yeah not not
super great locations in terms of you know large houses
Indonesia noon never mind I hate how that happens sometimes it’s probably did
you seriously like be stepped out so they’re gonna clear that no that’s
annoying so annoying which ones are we working here I do a real uh this doesn’t
really super matter let’s go ahead and get a farm set up there Eureka towards
that excellent and then nevermind stop trying to
declare war on people I’m actually gonna pull you back and we’ll just try to get
the experience on this since we’re not gonna get to clear the camp because the
AI somehow moved the barbarian out of there oh it’s Australia at war really
you are with that you’re at war with Australia alrighty well that is actually
kind of helpful I’d really like to set you know let’s
just keep improving the farms and so on and so forth I’m actually tempted to go
after can borrow Canberra we got eleven turns until this military tradition
comes into fruition mmm but I think we’ve gone on long
