    How much gold are you getting? i haven't found any difference between difficulties but after the patch it went down from 300 gold to 240 gold. i have never been able to get anything more than 240. Same with everyone else?

    Yes, 240 golf is the standard now, which makes sense as luxury resources only give 4 happiness instead of 5. (So the rate is still the same -- i.e. 60 gold per happy face)

    Think it depends on game speed also. I think I have gotten 450 from Friends on epic many times. (maybe thats prepatch though). The value was reduced in the last patch to 4/5 of what it was before.

    The cost has always remained 60:c5gold: per :c5happy: on standard. On Epic speed it is 90:c5gold: per :c5happy:.

    I recall getting 9 gold per resource (45 turns). It may have changed due to patches.

    with marathon game speed i get 720 gold for luxury resources. (when the buying ai is neutral or friendly). pre patch it was 900. This price sometimes vary though. Sometimes a friendly civ wont pay full price (720g) but as little as 500 something. Its quite random.

    yea it seems to me that after the game goes on for a while, even if an ai is friendly they know in the end only one can win and they want to give you less.

    In the Polynesia scenario the trades last 25 turns, and I was getting 250 gold. I thought it was 10 Gold / turn

    On standard speed: 60 gold per happiness (240 post-patch due to cut in happy)
    45 gold per resource. Was NOT changed by the patch.
