Hey, I'm playing Civ3 v1.29 and everytime I start a new game I end up falling way behind in the tech race because everything takes 40 turns until I can build up libraries. Is using scientists (can I do that this early in the game?) a wise decision to keep up in techs or would it be better to go straight for the GL? My typical strategy is peaceful builder after an early border skurmish so I can have supremacy over my neighbors. What do you guys think I should do to keep up?
