While I appreciate all those in the Mod Community working on a solution to the tech pace problem, I personally would like to see an official patch address this issue. I don’t necessarily think this means that the current system be totally done away with. It is fairly obvious that the fast pace was intentional and I am sure there are many people who like it. I do however believe there is a sizable number of players who find the current rate of tech advancement totally unacceptable. I would be content with just Moding it myself, if it were not for the fact that I enjoy the community that is created when everyone is playing the same game. The “official patch” could range from a total rewrite of the three current speeds, a rewrite of just the epic speed, a fourth “Historic” speed or an option to play at a “historic” pace for all three current speeds. I have created a poll to help Faraxis see how much of a concern this is for the community.
