    Sounds a bit like "Doctrines" from RI. I remember "flaming arrows" was one of them.

    Couldn't you just have "2 techtrees" to avoid dead ends? It would be still one tree in total, but the military techs are never a requirement (or just in rare cases) for the civil techs. Meaning you could get from language to Spacefolding without the need to develope chariots. But if you want to have cavalry, you'd need civil tech X AND Military tech Y.
    So the military techs still requires each other AND an apropiate Civil tech, which would avoid dead ends.
    The downside is, it won't allow you to merge the scytheblade wheels since they don't seem needed for further advanced units.

    Aside from the alt-timeline and religion techs the C2C tech tree has no dead ends. I personally love this since even if your civ has no horses and is landlocked chances are you will experience another civ that has horses and/or boats. So knowing about them is important.

    Do we have any ability to say, now that you've researched tech A, as a result you cannot research tech B? This could lead to entire alternate branch sets of techs representing entirely differing pathways which could then eventually re-intersect. Might even give me a reason to turn tech trading on too... so that you could find a way to develop both paths (though I'd think an AI should be loath to enable this via trading for a civ that chose a different path.)

    could you explain to me why one chose for Redcoats under the English and not the British it makes more sense to me as they where the soldiers of Great Britain so also the Scots, and the Welsh (and what other poor culture they owned)

    Because there is no Great Britain culture at the moment. The closest is English. Right now the closest cultures there are ...

    - English
    - Welsh
    - Scottish
    - Irish
    - Celtic

    The Celts covered the area from what is now Spain to what is now China!

    Yeah that's why it was at the bottom of my list. ;)

    However I think the British Empire covered a lot more area than the Celtic Empire.

    (British Empire at its peak.)
