I am struggling on a hard game at the moment in which the computer is in a team against me. The main problem is they have emancipation and I'm quite a way from that and, as you can imagine, this is really making my populous unhappy. I am asking for help and suggestions from you CivFans if you have any, as to how I can make my people happy whilst giving me some ability to research. I have some resources which have an effect and I have a religion which I've spread around and built the temples etc of. What are the best ways of keeping my people happy? Another thing, I've noticed by increasing culture it makes my people happier - but I can't work out why. I see the colosseum link, but does it have a direct effect, i.e. 10% culture = +1 happy or similar? Thanks everyone!!!
