Hello, I've been trying to improve my cultural victories recently, and I've read a lot of the threads and strategies about cultural victories and they've been a great help. I have a general idea about my tech path, how many cities to have, how to handle diplomacy, ect. However I have a few more questions that I couldn't find answers to, and I'd appreciate some help: - Should I just cottage my 3 cities and work them as early as possible? Usually this leads to low production when there aren't any hills to mine, so it becomes quite hard to get out cathedrals or other expensive buildings, and rush buying takes a long time. Are workshops worth adding after Caste System or are cottages better? - Should my 3 cities stop working cottages and have a few GA specialists, or is it better if just my 2-3 GP farms produce GAs? My problem is that until I settle my last cities (I usually have 6) and get their population big enough to work specialists it's a little late in the game. Should I quickly settle all 6 cities? - Is it worth building GE wonders in my 3 cities or are wonders that add GA specialists better? Or should my 3 cities switch to building culture at any possible time? I've never had a city that produced more than 500 culture a turn, even though I make sure to build religious buildings, libraries, ect. Should I be building more wonders? - Around when should I start building missionaries to spread the 4-5 religions? I usually start around 1 AD but is that too late? I play with Elizabeth, small and usually Pangaea so each civ's religion can spread to me. My best has been late 1800s with cottage spamming, usually Pyramids in my capital then rush builded Sistine and 1-2 other GA wonders in my other 2 cities (usually Parthenon). I try to have 4 religions in all 6 cities so I can have cathedrals in all cultural cities. Thanks in advance!
