    I played on King and Emperor so far and in all games I finish the civics and tech tree around turn 300. Is this as designed? I don't even focus on tech too much or at least don't focus on tech only.

    I find it very odd if so. On Civ 5 there were cases where even by the end of the game I didn't finish the tech tree.

    Science scales with empire size. If you have 4 cities, you maybe may not finish the techtree in time. If you have 10, 50 or 100 cities (from conquest), you rush through tech/civic tree. So it depends a lot on map size, aggressive/defensive playstyle and districts-priority (Campus) ... in a wide empire, population contributes a lot to science ...

    There are mods which allow you to customize tech costs (and other costs) per era ...
    e.g. see here

    waaay.. before then. And finishing the tech and civic trees usually happens well before a VC.

    Well ... I mostly play by my Civ V habits. Won a culture victory on turn 316 on Emperor.

    T160~170 is an average time (standard speed) I think.


    In order not to cause misunderstanding, I'm just talking about my average.

    On standard speed? I'm guessing I'm not too far from average, and I think I'm usually on track to finish the trees between 200 and 300 (although the game's usually over before the trees are completed).

    I agree. I'm not really sure what average is, but I feel like finishing both trees prior to turn 200 is above average. 300 does sound very late though
