Watching some youtube lets plays I noticed quite a few ppl play on standard speed with no mods and also even on big maps where both you and the AI can massively spam cities and units to the point of insanity. I find that type of game utterly boring, the games go by way too fast and you barely get units from an era when already u upgrade them to the next era, and theres massive unit spam and city spam in the game, its just ridicilous. I enjoy games that actually last a good amount of turns so you can wage wars in one era actually, not through 4 eras or something, and I also don't like city or unit spam. Im using marathon speed and also have a mod for extended eras so the tech and everything goes slower even than on marathon, and yet unit buildings and all that are not so affected so you can actually build units and replace units faster. And I also play map sizes with amount of opponents so that its hard to spam alot of cities due to space restrictions and also use mods such as bigger distances needed between cities and also mods that make unit maintenance more so I really don't have an insane city and unit spam game, and yet you can replace units faster and eras take way longer so you can wage wars and its much more realistic. Anyone else enjoy something like that also?
