So I'm playing a game as Greece, and all the AI's are making over +60 culture per turn. The Byzantine's are producing about 80 per turn. And I'm only producing 48 per turn. This is at the very early middle ages. I built libraries in every city, and it did help... For a while. The AI always seems to catch up on culture. On regent it didn't seem to be a problem, but on monarch it's getting chaotic. I've got 21 cities, 1 library in about 15 of them. Byzantine has 14 cities and yet, somehow has +38 culture per turn more than me. I'm slowly slipping away in the culture charts. This is getting very annoying. The reason I'm trying to at least have the same amount of culture as the top culture producer (Byzantine) is so that my cities won't flip. I've had horrible experiences in the past with flipping and I don't want to make that mistake again, but it's so hard to keep my culture at least adequate. Is there any way to keep my culture up without spending a fortune? Of course, I could just conquer Byzantine, but I'm currently at war with Japan, and all my troops are fighting them. I predict it will last quite a while, so declaring war on Byzantine is no option, yet. I wish the AI wouldn't produce so much culture... It's getting very annoying. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks!
