I've played Civ 1, 2, 3 and now 4. I'm currently playing Civ 4 BTS. Throughout my life, I've never really tried to take my Civ game to the next level. I've just played casually and had fun, but my scores were never really that good. I also went through periods where I would not play for a year or so. I'm out of grad school now and have more time on my hands. Before starting my last game on Civ 4 BTS, I spent an afternoon reading posts here, created a strategy guide for myself, and then played a game on Warlord. My normalized score was 12,000+ and a Hammurabi level. These results were much, much better than usual for me. For now, I have three questions I would like to ask: 1. How many Great Generals should (or can) you put into your dedicated Gun Pump or Military City? In other words, how many before its overkill? Or in other words, how many should I put in my first Gun Pump before I should start setting up a secondary Gun Pump? I thought each Great General added as a military instructor is supposed to increase the Level of new units by 1, am I mistaken? This does not seem to happen to me. 2. On my last game, I fought nearly the entire game on Warlord and conquered two continents. I used my Level 5 Units at times to engage in war, but I struggled to obtain a Level 6 military unit. Any advice on getting an L6 unit so I can build West Point? 3. What is gained by winning the race to Liberalism? If nothing is gained, why does Civ make that sad horn sound if I lose the race to Liberalism? 4. Do any of you have advice on what goals or milestones you hope to achieve by 1 AD?
