    I usually play on slower game speed and I feel like the tech pacing is way too fast. I know I can adjust tech costs in xml files but that would be really inefficient. Is there another more efficient way to slow down tech pacing?

    A lot of pacing depends on your game settings and even your individual playstyle. What settings do you usually use?

    I usually play on a huge RI planet generator map, monarch or prince difficulty, legendary game speed, ancient start, no tech trading, no tribal villages.

    And by "way too fast" what do you mean? In terms of game length in turns, where are you in tech at what percentage points?

    The feedback would still be welcome - since realism is default speed, other can indeed be less well-balanced...

    I've been feeling that tech moves too fast in my games, sometimes. It's not constant, but in ~60% of my games, Islam is founded in 300 BC, which seems wrong.

    I think the upcoming nerfs to the Great Library should help slow down the pace of technology in most games. Especially games in which the human player builds the GL.

    True. We should be able to build our troops and buildings faster than we tech so as to have them during a particular time period. I tend to play on slower game speeds to slow the tech speed, but it also tends to slow the building construction to ridiculous snail speeds. I am not sure what the best balance is. I know everyone has different tastes.
