    thats a question more suited to strategy and tips forum. i suppose if im germany or songhai i'll focus on producing a warrior quickly cuz of their barb bonuses. if it looks like im on an island i'll go for growth + worker cuz theres no need to explore. otherwise my standard start is default worker focus + a scout, but u know its all circumstantial. i play small maps.

    QUICK QUESTION: The answer is probably obvious but I'm not seeing it . . .

    HOW DO YOU BUY A TECHNOLOGY ??? I've got a ton of gold but am falling way behind. (I'm from Civ 3 where you set a percentage aside for tech research.)

    Minor question compared to that: Once having garrisoned a unit in a city, how do you get him up again?

    Cheers, goat.

    You need to be at least friendly before you can protect a city state.

    You can't buy technologies, but you can make research agreements with other civs for a fixed amount of gold. Once the agreement expires, you both get a random tech.

    There should be an icon for your unit fortified on the city tile. Press it to select the unit.

    You can't.

    Questions :

    1) Both times I did a research agreement that went through, I got the technology i missed that needed the least beakers. Do you always get the cheapest tech you have?

    2) Is there a reference for unit upgrades? It seems I always beeline the wrong unit tech.

    Something like Warrior -> Swordman -> longswordman -> etc, and scout -> archer -> crossbowman -> ?? etc.

    I'm trying to select optimal citi size (in hexes), but never actually used specialists.

    How much give each if them hummers/gold/science/culture? Ho mush they eat? What about unhappiness etc.

    If you mouseover a specialist slot, it will tell you what benefits that specialist will provide. Specialists eat 2 food like a regular citizen, though there is a social policy which will reduce it to 1. Specialists cound towards happiness like regular citizens.

    Another question:
    Culture from buildings are used to extend borders and to adopt policies. Culture from SC are used just to adopt policies?

    That's too bad, they should have made it so culture from city states are split among your existing cities or something. If I am warmongering and rely on CS for my culture, it should also help popping hexes.

    I am pretty sure merchant gives 2 gold and scientist 2 science. Engineer should give 2 hammers, but I never tried it.

    If so I can't understand why players move people from tiles to specialists? (only scientist is understandable - u can't get science from tiles)

    Because :

    1) you earn points towards great people. a great merchant gives you around 500-550 gold and 30 influence with a city state(a additional value of ~220 gold), which is more than you can ever earn from a tile.

    2) Some civics and wonders make specialists more powerful. One civic inside freedom reduces the food specialists take from 2 to 1. And another inside rationalism gives an extra 2 research per specialist.
