    After playing a few 20k attempts here and there on Sid I've found that the Mongols often will research Code of Laws after Writing. Anyone spotted any other tribes that have a tendency to do this?

    Persia and Russia. Mongols indeed are good at beelining it.

    How are you finding out which civilizations are researching advances in a particular order?

    i don't know about the ts, but that info is readily available in civassist2. it doesn't explicitly show you what order techs are being researched in, but it's easy to determine that if you check the techs section after every turn.

    I'm using MapStat checking who has what every turn, similar to what marioh said.

    may not be relevant, but the Viking always seem to be first to Iron Working

    the AI neglects that bit of the tree. mongols have probably got it due to expansionist. possibly russia as well.

    the dutch and vikings will beeline for writing, and the portuguese and hittities may get it thanks to expansionist, but apart from that, they don't bother.

    persia prefer iron working, in my games.

    You could open up the diplomacy screen with every tribe every turn.

    Does Sumeria always research Monarchy? I've also noticed a tendency of theirs to adopt fascism.

    I think they usually will go that route fairly quickly, as will the Ottomans a few others also.

    i've noticed the ottomans love polythesim. because they beeline for it, it's a cheap way to pick it up without researching it, because you can usually trade 3 or 4 techs for it

    oddly for a scientific tribe, i find sumeria to be always behind at the start. once they hit the middle ages though, the scientific+agricutural combo kicks in.

    Makes sense. In the real world Temujin ordered that an alphabet be created or borrowed to create a written Mongol language so his code of laws could be written down.
