    The Papermaker bonus is +2 :c5gold: and free maintenance. The 1/2 :c5science: per citizen is a standard Library effect. I arbitrarily chose 6 :c5citizen: (3 :c5science:) because it is realistic to get this population at the point in the game where you have constructed the three buildings (and possibly some units as well). If anything it skews the Pyramid benefit, because +2 :c5science: is a bigger bonus (percentage wise) in a smaller population city. All three remaining buildings really scale well to a wide expansion strategy.

    The results look great to me. The top five exactly match my own views. My only quibbles with the entire list is that I'd but Bazaar over Satrap's court and I'd move longhouse up to the middle of the pack. That was fun.

    Dang it! I only got 3 out of 5, and in the wrong order!
    I could have sworn that Bazaar would have made it.

    I'm really surprised the Bazaar didn't do better. It's double the resources. Double! Thats like having double the Dutch UA upon hitting currency! How did that do worse than a bank that gives some happiness?

    It's not good in MP. Also, a lot of players already have multiple copies of luxuries by currency.

    What is the thought behind Stele being better suited to wide ? Culture VC is optimized with tradition and low # of cities. Too hard to maintain religion with low number of cities ?
