Civ Rev Xbox Deity - Bug or Feature?
I haven't noticed this as a problem, but the other player in my house is having an issue with it and I have been asked to ask you fine folks about it.
Here's the issue: on DEITY on my XBOX 360, the technology research seems to possibly be buggy-- it might just be normal, but I'm not sure. When she starts a new game, she plays for several rounds before it asks which technology to research (moreso than the other settings), plus it goes very slowly. It may say "Alphabet in 6 turns," and 7 turns go by and when we check the status, none of the technologies have any indication as to how long they will take to research-- that part is just blank.
Is this normal, part of what makes Deity difficult? Or do we have a flaw or bug here?
Since you're playing Deity this is probably a stupid question, but do you have any sea or desert tiles (if using egypt) in use at the time? How long it takes to research a tech depends entirely on how many beakers you have. Beakers are obtained from sea tiles, desert tiles, and at least one special tile. For the player nothing changes regardless of the SP difficulty; all the changes are strictly to make the AI more challenging.
So no, there is no difference between settings when it comes to how quickly you research technologies. Chances are the other person in your house simply is changing their tiles, or leaving themselves on balanced and the game changes them, or perhaps they built a settler...it's hard to say off what you've given. However if you don't have this problem then I doubt its your game and assume its just the other player. =P
