   Advanced Usage
 ==================
 
-There is not much experience using the CMA yet, but some common
-remarks may be helpful. Usually the goal(s) of your cities depend on
-the phase your game is in, whether you want to spread widely, grow
-quickly, research advanced techs or wage war. You may want to set up a
-high factor for science to research, or a high shields factor to
-produce units. The highest factor available is 25, that means: if the
-shields factor is set to 25, and other to 1, the CMA prefers a single
-shield over 25 gold (or trade also). This is pretty much because money
-can buy units too. That also means that the CMA is indifferent about
-producing gold, science, luxury, and food; but when you wage war, you
-usually prefer gold or luxury. So it's probably a good idea to set a
-second (or even third) preference for the city's output, e.g. gold
-factor 5. That still prefers 1 shield over 5 gold (and 1 gold over 5
