In my recent games where I've been going for a domination or science victory I've been trying not to neglect culture along the way but find when I've met everyone I'm near last culturally so wondering what I'm doing wrong. Most recently, I'm playing as Japan going for domination and picked them for the bushido benefit but also specifically to get the CPT from fishing boats which I've had out as soon as I could get them. I'm on Archipelago map and have about 8 or 9 boats on the water. Writers and Artists guilds are up and staffed and I'm now cranking out the museums. I've been bulbing my writers for culture and bulbed a GA for a golden age although in hindsight should have created a work. I've now met everyone and find that I'm about half of Siam's culture and a third of their CPT and am something like 6th or 7th in the overall culture stakes. Like Siam, I have 3 cities so now trying to figure out what I should have done differently. I've just hit the tech lead (planted 2 GSs and now saving future GSs). Culture was so bad that when I took Order and Siam took Autocracy 2 turns later I got pressured pretty badly so switched immediately as pretty much everyone else was going that way or, if not, getting pressured. I guess the general question is whether there are any tips for building culture when NOT pursuing a CV?
