I ve played so far only three games. One chieftain , one regent and I m currently on a monarch, and definitely the game is more challenging than Civ and Civ2, even alpha centaury I think (but you re very welcome to think otherwise).
It made me want to know exactly how the tech are priced in Civ3. I didnt see a full explanation so far on the strat forum, even though some very good tips can be found reading the sucession game.
As anyone drafted a full theory of the thing?

I don't now how much they cost in Civ3. In Civ2 you could see it in Rules.txt. I think you have to look in the Civ3 Edit by every tech en then by "Price" or "Cost" or something. I don't know or that is there, but I think so.

Check mydiseases formula in my favorite thread (http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=21925) :
Research cost = (MM * COST * (K - N) / 10K) - Research done so far
Research cost and research done so far (beakers) in gold
COST is the cost specified in the editor.
MM = map modifiers =
N = number of civs on the diplomacy screen that have discovered the tech.
K is constant for any given number of civs on a map. Values of K so far :
2 civs K=3
3 civs K=4
4 civs K=6
5 civs K=6.66
6 civs K=9
7 civs K=10
8 civs K=12
9 civs K=12.5
10 civs K=15
11 civs K=16
12 civs K=18

Thanks a lot Shabbaman and thanks a lot to mydiseases if he ever read this thread!
I think this should go in the main strategy posting in the opening of the site!
