Did you play a smallpoxtactic against a nonsmallpoxtactic? Which was
better in the long run? (Faster steam, faster some wonders)

I think even with 60 shields a smallpoxtactic is better.

For a new city you need 50 Food and 60 shields.
And you get in a normal city (with rep) 
3 Food 1 shield 2 trade
2 Food 1 shield 2 trade

With a little bit rapturing you could remove the drawback of the loss of 2
population. So you have to change the rapture delay ...

With smallpox you get after < 30 rounds your investment back. Think
usually a little bit faster. Particularly with cheap improvement units.
Then you have usually 1 food more.

I think an ICS strategy will be effective with you rulesets.

Do you have tiles for the "Worker"? It has to be added in my
rulesetchange too :-)
