    You mean a pathfinder? I wonder if city states could gift pathfinders, that would be funny.

    Usually 3 well-placed cities until I get to ideology. A 4th one sometimes for a resource I lack.

    Then when I start getting a lot of happiness, I will expand everyotherway - found new cities, conquests etc. Usually for resources.

    No, they are hard-coded in the game engine not to gift any recon units.

    Tall = grow population asap, eventually settling few core cities.
    Wide = somewhat ignore population growth until you (quickly) settle as many cities as the map/strategy allows, then grow population.
