I set out to win a game through a peaceful Cultural victory. Unfortunately I was sandwiched between two aggressive cultures and had to waste a ton of money in defending myself. Especially since I had no iron so had to push back their constant invasions using archers or horsemen vs Swordsmen. Finally I discovered gunpowder and found saltpeter. From there I outpaced my rivals to cavalry and went on an all out war against them, just for the greater good of piece for my people. Well one thing led to another and somehow my small peaceful empire controlled 75% of the worlds population and around 60% of the land. I quickly granted piece to all the remaining empires (I um had accidently destroyed both of my rivals and a couple of the other empires that had joined them in their war against me, its hard to reign in those cavalry armies). Anyway from here I stalled the game gaining culture and tech advances until 1989 at which point I saved the game then won it through Cultural victory, Space Race Victory and Domination. I received the following scores: Cultural - 2944 Space Race 2885 Domination - 2840 So I finally get to the question part of my question. Was it just the minor branches of changes in the final turns that caused the greater points for a cultural victory? Or do they score the different victory conditions differently? The points were in reverse of the year finished.
