Resource Trading Question

Now I'm not looking to re-roll, as my current nation is 682 days old, but I am very interested in hearing some opinions regarding trades.

First of all, if a new nation were to start off with my resources (wine and gems) would you recommend a re-roll? I know I've found it very difficult to maintain a trade circle, and yet I would think that they would be very useful and desirable resources for an economy-based trade circle.

Second, what bonus resources would you target with a wine and gems combo (with a uranium trade)?

Your resources may require a bit more work than a traditional 3BR that everyone is always looking for but can have greater payoffs. I'd built around the FJ/AP combo. Perhaps something close to this:

Resource list:
- Cattle
- Coal
- Fish
- Furs
- Gems
- Gold
- Pigs
- Silver
- Sugar
- Uranium
- Wheat
- Wine

Economic effect:
Income: +$17.5
Citizens: +37.09%
Happiness: +10.5
Infra cost: -4%
Tech cost: -5%
Land cost: -14.5%
Land bonus: +15%

Bill effect:
Infra UpK: -3%
Soldier UpK: -$0.5
Nuke UpK: -50%
Navy UpK: -5%

Military effect:
Soldier eff.: +24.2%
Navy Cost: -5%

That's a huge cash cow with the largest pop modifiers in the game. Plan your infra purchases around getting a few temp trades to get the infra modifiers and you'll outgrow everything even the vaulted 3BR.

Why is this not popular?  I just ran it through the calculator and it's blown me away.  The cash increase more than makes up for the increased infra bills, the only down side I'm seeing is a 14% loss in soldier efficiency.  What am I missing?

The downside is the effect on infra purchase cost, at only -4%.  I'll be honest and say that I'm not sure what the best one is, but my own trade circle is giving me -35% right now.  But yes, apart from that, I don't see too many differences between the one above and what I have right now.

 

Also, holy blast from the past, Batman!
