    Prussia's better off starting at the 1700 AD scenario unless you previously played as the HRE and developed its core.

    I've played Civ4 for the first time in months and I forgot what I did to make a more advanced Prussia.

    My questions are: What do I build and research? When and in what order do I conquer? What civics do I adopt? How many Great People do I settle and how many do I use for science and Wonders?

    What I do so far:
    -Adopt Monasticism and Isolationism, later switch to Constitution, Egalitarianism, Secularism and Nationhood whenever two of these are available.
    -Conquer Denmark right away, considering sacking or razing it.
    -Focus espionage on the Netherlands.
    -First research goes to Replaceable Parts, DOW on Poland as soon as my Fusiliers are updated.
    -Here's one of my questions: What research order to follow? I then beeline to Nationalism, Journalism, Machine Tools and Psychology.
    -I focus my cities on Production and Science. I don't know what to build, I create Spies, army and buildings relevant to science or great people. I also build the Brandenburg Gate and Neuschwanstein whenever I can, and any other Wonders if I have time to.
