Farthest Tech In Demo?
I was just wondering how far everyone has gotten as far as technology in the demo.
Playing online with my friend, we were able to reach FLIGHT using the Great University wonder.
Without that wonder, we still managed to get Railroad, Steam Power, Printing Press, a few others, I forget.
(This is with sharing technologies, though it didn't seem to make THAT much of a difference because I got Railroad on my own, and almost Steel.)
I played Egyptians, he plays Romans.
I feel like we are the first, if not two of the few who managed to reach this column of technology. As it clearly says "Buy the full game to gain access to this technology."
I read a while ago someone gave a challenge to the forums for the demo to reach the column with Metallurgy and whatever else in it, and I'd like to say to that person "you've been trumped."
I know that this also involve a good deal of luck with great people, etc. But it's very do-able. As I said, I reached Railroad by myself as Egyptians, he also accomplished this solo as Romans.
I had about 5 or 6 cities when I reached Railroad solo and almost Steel, I was producing around 183 science per turn.
Just wanted to know if anyone else has gotten this far, farther, or what.
I think the fact that we reached Flight is pretty significant.
The tier you need to buy the game for is the one with communism, flight etc, but the techs are all in the demo and can be reached with the oxford university. Personally the farthest i've gotten is advanced flight (oxford) and I must say bombers are awesome
PS I think I was getting like 500 science per turn lol. This was with the mega city strategy using the romans.

Ive gotten each of the techs, including Flight, Adv Flight, and the Nuke, and then with a few Great Scientists I finished off Future Tech twice (gave me nothing)
I almost got Future tech a few times and was wondering what it would give. I guess nothing :/

I did future tech a few times. I couldn't figure out what it did.
I later looked at one of my production cities and the forests had 3 hammers and the mountains had 6 I believe.
Maybe its +1 production from production squares every couple times you research it?
Wow, you guys are good at this game. (I'm new to this series and only have the demo, gonna get the game later today) When you research Future Tech aparently this is what you get:
1st time: +1 production to production tiles. 2nd time: +1 food to all food tiles. 3rd time: +1 trade to all trade tiles. Rinse and repeat.
dang ive only gotten to combustion one time
