    I've been assuming the 25% border expansion bonus (50% post-patch) for America also affects "normal" culture expansion.

    That's not the case, is it? Only for actually buying the extra hexes.

    I tend to shoot for Stonehenge early, so I get fast expansion regardless when I get it. (And I'll usually get it if I have Marble.) That's been throwing me off.

    just gold buying. there is a column for PlotCultureCostModifier in the traits table, but it is the default for all civs (compared to PlotBuyCostModifier which is -25 for washington)
