I dislike starting with Hunting because on Emperor or harder because I very rarely get a free technology from huts. At Emperor you are facing AI's that start with two scouts and you have only a 1 in 7 chance of a tech per hut. Assuming equal chances of finding techs for each scout, to get 1 free tech on Emperor you would -on average- have to find 7 huts and each AI 14 huts . Since there aren't going to be nearly that many huts on the map barring hijinx of some kind, that averages out to far less than 1 tech per game. Yet in following obsolete's deity games, it seems that many deity players routinely get free techs -even multiple free techs- when they start with a scout. Essentially, I'd like to know how. Do some of you high levels players have a secret to finding huts?
