Okay I see, thanks. That makes much more sense. In that case I can see how people can easily get to industrial age so early because they dont waste so much money on maintenance of buildings they dont need. I guess this tells me that I should pay more attention to each individual city and set the production according to their specific need. I also need to really read up on what all the buildings specifically do in order to judge if theyre worth it, that would really improve my gameplay a lot, thank you. I see, that makes much more sense. I guess I must look after the sliders to for the extra opportunity gold. I see, thanks. Ill take that into account when playing. I hear that on higher difficulties on Emperor mastering the Lux and Sci slider is a must, because of higher difficulty happiness. Thats cool, thanks. Looks like im gonna be facing a lot of micro gameplay soon with all this minamixng I see, that method is more profitable. Thanks. I did not know that! Again shows that I havent really looked into what a lot of the buildings do. This markets very important. Also highlights the need for a lot of lux early game, I guess scouting is hella important, because previously I did not pay it much attention. I acutally have C3C on Steam, bought it quite a while ago for real cheap (even tho Civ 3 > any other civ game ) I only like to play on PTW because thats the one I used to play most on. The PTW game was actually bought a loong time ago by my mother in Ukraine (I play on the English version now but my first games were on Russian). We still have the original CD somewhere, but I just mount the ISO and run it like that, works like an absolute piece of cake. I'm pretty sure my uncle has the OG CD somewhere back in Ukraine. Idk why but I didnt really feel like playing on C3C at first, I was very unfamiliar with it. I will try my best! Yeah my corruption mechanics knowledge is very shallow, I need to read up on the War Academy first.
