    To Civ4's Future Tech, that is. ;) They range in length from 60 to 68 techs. The number of paths of minimum length is two.
    So if there are 84 techs in the tech tree, you could at most skip 24 techs on the way.

    Some more stats:

    Pottery: 2 paths, 2 efficient, 3 techs
    Writing: 6 paths, 2 efficient, 3-4 techs
    Construction: 10 paths, 4 efficient, 7-8 techs
    Philosophy: 20 paths, 1 efficient, 7-10 techs
    Military Tradition: 120 paths, 1 efficient, 16-23 techs
    Steam Power: 94 paths, 6 efficient, 27-33 techs
    Fission: 137 paths, 1 efficient, 24-39 techs
    Fusion: 65 paths, 1 efficient, 54-62 techs

    If you have Python installed, you can use this script to check other techs.

    [edit: download removed since there now is an improved version available here.]

    interesting, but nothing more... ;)
    Because not only the number of tech counts, but especially the number of beakers needed to research those, then you can compare the paths... (you sure have to take away the impact of Great Leaders/'Free-techs-as-in-civ3-with-philosophy/starting techs?'...

    Thanks, everyone! :)

    True. Fortunately, it will be easy to add tech costs after release. Maybe I'll do it when I get bored of playing Civ4. ;)
    About the other factors: Not so sure how (and if) to do those .... maybe ... maybe not.
