Default Ages of Empires 2 computer game

I took a bit of a break from working on the Civilization 3 computer game to play some Ages of Empires 2. I forgot that if you set the population to 200, the AI goes insane with building workers, and gets up into the 70s with them. As I am much more the build everything and get every tech, and then build the Wonder to see how it looks, this does cause some problems.

The odd thing is that if you set the population control to 125, the AI rarely builds more than a dozen or so workers. I think that the most I ever built, including fishing boats using fish traps, is 43.

I do like the game, as it is not too bad when it comes to history, and some of the Wonders are great examples of graphics. It does or did come with the best manual I have ever seen for a computer game.

that do business in great waters;
These see the works of the LORD,
and his wonders in the deep.
