I play normal speed on small pangaea maps on emperor difficulty. Almost all of my victories are domination. I think I'm missing out on some game mechanics. I almost never use spies. I almost never use the cultural slider. I almost never use watermills, workshops, preserves or levees. How often are people using these things given my game settings? Lastly, what would be considered an early date for Liberalism? Keep in mind that I can rarely get more than 6 cities or so early on given how small the map is. Thanks for reading.
