Thanks for the input. Toniná is indeed tough - try any other faction for an easier cruise. I'm surprised you think the tech pace is too high, and that units come in too quick succession; other players have complained about the opposite. You can, of course, fiddle with tech costs and scenario length yourself to see if you like it better that way. There are indeed space for building a great many cities, but I'm not sure how that would contribute to your unease?
