    Nope.
    +1 = +2; +1 = +1

    Banking?
    And maybe a third clue after a couple guesses?

    Not Banking, and yes, the third clue will come after a few more guesses (sorry that it's super-ultra-cryptic!)

    It's actually an intriguing riddle, so no worries. I just hate being stumped! :)

    No and no. I'll go ahead and post the last clue now (it's a super bargain 'cause you get 2 things to work from in 1 handy clue!)
    42: +1 = +1. 1: +1 = +1, +1.
    If s = Standard, then x = 2 or 4

    I'm too tired to work this out, but two of the clues total 43, which are the number of civs (I think). I just don't know what those modifiers pertain to. I was about to say a certain building, but I don't see what they'd have to do with a Standard map size conditional. I'm babbling now. I'll go with embarkation.

    Vibe96 is the closest. The correct answer was Horses improved with a Pasture
    Here's the breakdown for clues:
    #1: 41 = +2, 2 = +3 - This refers to the base production yield of the pasture. For 41 civs it's 2 production, but for Russia and the Huns it's 3.
    #2: +1 = +2; +1 = +1 - This one refers to two things: the first refers to building a Circus in a city with a nearby improved source of Horses, which yields +2 Happiness, while the second part refers to the fact that the Fertilizer technology adds +1 food to Pastures.
    #3: 42: +1 = +1. 1: +1 = +1, +1. - This refers to the fact that, for 42 Civs, building a Stable adds +1 Production to all pastures, but for one (Poland), the Ducal Stable yields +1 food and +1 Gold.
    If s = Standard, then x = 2 or 4 - As vibe96 noted, this is simply the fact that if the resource setting is Standard, then the amount of Horses in a "deposit" is either 2 or 4.

    Yes, Vibe96 gets the "victory" point (sorry if I didn't make that clear!)
