    In a tour de force, Samson and Rufus Firefly (and others) at Apolyton have discovered what determines the amount of research required to achieve successive techs. Here are the links:

    The Cost of Research Explained and The Key to Tech Gifting

    For information leading up to these discoveries, the following threads are also of interest (especially in terms of applying the scientific method to Civ2): Unexpected Discovery during Research and Does giving away tech help your science?

    I highly recommend the visit.

    BTW, is "tour de force" used in "pure" English? I didn't know that this French expression could be used in English...

    I admire you guys who have the skill and patience to figure these things out. However for the few 9 years olds who play this game, this mathematical formula may not make sense. I, of course, understand it. I've seen many of these calculations in the game, however, I can never utilize them.
