cmd 5 and other things give smallpox too. Build as many cities you can, no 
cityimprovements and so on. For you smallpox is a high density of cities. For 
me its building only settlers, military units, caravans and wonders. No 

Even wtih cmd 5 its better to build new cities before building a temple.
