Growing your economy efficiently, part 2
Okay. We discussed this earlier a little bit. The "experts" say you should do SCI2 -> COM2 -> CIV2 before CLASSICAL. I'm not so sure. I've run a few tests, and I get better econ and development by going CLASSICAL before any of the level 2 techs. It's only about 8% more (as measured in total resources) but it grows because you'll be almost a full minute ahead of the standard boom. It also enables you to insert an easy MIL1 into your strategy at any point in time. This is partialy dependent on finding good spots (obviously) and more work needs to be done, but I think this works better. Of course, rares and ruins can change all that; we'll see what develops.
