Hi, I'm new to Civ4 although I played Civ3 quite some time ago. I was wondering if you "experts" could put some short, concise tips in to help us beginners. From my own experience and reading the other threads, I've picked out the following: -> Build fewer, quality cities. -> Build near resources -> Chopping down forrests boosts production, helping early production of buildings and units -> Build roads to move units across the map much faster -> Build roads to resources like horses and elephants with roads to enable production of mounted units at all cities (if you have the right techs) If anyone can post their tips then that would be really great. Please try to keep is in Layman's terms!
