Hi all, I can't get my head around this issue. I'm at Chieftain, normal pace, and in 520 AD. But my whole civilization only generates +74 research! Is that puny or what?! I would appreciate some tips regarding generating research. I know cottages contribute to research as they generate gold pieces. I always get my pop to work on the cottages, but each city only generates like 15 beakers of research! I also know building buildings like libraries helps, but I would like to know at which point in the game by date (500AD, 1000AD, etc) would I be able to generate +100 research per city. I've read articles about specialization but I don't think I'm ready yet. Currently I only build cottages on all tiles. Any tips would be appreciated! I've come quite a long way since I first started playing. I was so lost back then but I've since grasped the basics of the game, and I love it! Praetorians rock by the way lol!
