    So you have settled a pioneer in a new place. While you have some free buildings, there is still a lot to do.

    In general, what build order do you use to get a pioneer city in shape as efficiently as possible?

    Send Growth ITR, buy 1-2 Workers, Lock Specialists, Lighthouse, Grow, become Unhappy, Ampitheatre, Aqueduct, Workshop, Bank, Garden, and then Lock Growth and put some Specialists. I build them something like that, if I remember correctly.

    I give them a production trade route first, then a food ITR. I want the aqueduct finished before it starts growing too quickly.

    Lighthouse is very good for a city connection. Aqueduct and grocers are good too (you need gold to invest in grocer). After those generally I build production buildings, then culture, then science. Chancery is very good if you have a few CS allies, it can help speed up all the other buildings.

    Engineers if not enough Hills, Guilds if those are available, otherwise Scientists.

    Tile improvements and more hammer buildings, but as I like to play very wide I cant use them with current patch, a pioneer when you have 15-20 cities is rediculously expensive.

    I usually invest and build a bank after finishing the fast buildings (Arena/Barracks/Armory/Lighthouse), and then invest in every building that takes longer than 5 turns to build for the science. But that's probably only good with Progress/Industry.
