Am I the only one who thinks that jet fighters and stealth bombers are available too late in the game? I have now finished 5 Civ 4 games, and I have not even once built any jet fighters and stealth bombers. Whenever a game lasts to the modern era, the game tends to narrow into a race towards the Space Victory (or a time victory if the tech rate has been slow). I cannot afford to lose a single turn on the wrong technology if I want to be a part of the Space Race. The jet fighters and stealth bombers are are available so late, that the time frame in which uoy can use them is very limited. I Civ 3 I loved to built a HUGE fleet/airforce and liked to play Superpower with my Carriers, jet fighters and bombers. But I feel that this enjoyment is lost in Civ 4 - which is otherwise a far better game than Civ 3 The only option (without modding), as I see it, is to disable Space Race victory........and I wouldn't like that either, as I like to have as many different ways to win as possible. Just my thoughts on this...........do you feel the same way or am I missing something?
