Response to Builds
Thanx a lot for your detailed answer. In a game as complex as civ, flexible and versatile strategies sure must be superior to dogmatic ones.
There are two fundamental points from which my dogmatism may originate and I would be interested in your opinion.
1. I build temples mainly to get that first expansion, so I can work all my tiles. This makes city placement more flexible, I can pull in valuable tiles from a distance. I somehow must be overrating this argument.
2. This is the crucial one. Since my early civ1, civ2 days, I like to develop the population of my cities as evenly as possible. Because then luxury % does not waste commerce, but gives roughly equal benefit everywhere. So I actually like to build granaries (which I seldom do anyway) in low-food cities. For example, if my capital has 4-5 extra food, I do not even build a granary. If it only has 2-3, I build it. In other cities I almost never build granary.
Is it a crucial mistake, now I start thinking... Maybe (at least some of) the settlers CAN be built in a secondary town, or the workers CAN be built in a specialized city, rather than one in each city... Hmmm... I definitely have to try.
