    TRUE TRUE TRUE!! This is why there always has been fuzzy agreement on the best traits, they are truly dependant on play style. I would add game speed also inteferes profoundly in the matter; Slower speeds (specially marathon which exacerbates units) find AGG & PRO on par traits for instance, even more in MP of course.

    One thing came to be certain for me about CRE & EXP in the lasts posts: you have to love the Khmer, gets the best of both worlds.. hahaha!!

    I don't always agree with your comments, Ricci, but Khmer is good indeed.

    I rate EXP a bit higher myself. It is my favorite trait (not saying it is the best), but CRE is one of those traits that when you are working with it, it is very nice.

    I would be very much pleased to read about those oportunities where a fellow civ fanatic like you doesn`t. I might probably learn something too.

    Therein lies the beauty of Civ IV. Fifteen years on and we STILL can't agree the best way to play. A well balanced masterpiece. :D

    @Ricci: I was talking about the CloseToHome mod which as the title says is fairly close to BTS. Castles are pretty much the same as in BTS except they obsolete a bit later so they are very slightly better.

    I think one reason bulbs are not so strong is that most key military tech paths do not have efficient bulbs. And if you bulb maybe one tech on the way a non-PHI civ can do that easily as well. PHI does unable one or two maybe more GAs which is relevant.
