As of 8/29/08 at 2:40 pm EST this strategy guide is still a work in progress. I have a few more technologies to add as well as rewording passages as always. I hope this guide helps you pick your strategy as it has mine.

Advice is as always encouraged and appreciated.

SDI defence system is built in your Capitol ( or largest city, I'm not sure) if you are the first to discover the secrets of the Superconductor.

For Networking, University cost is reduced ( by either 33% or 50%, again not sure).

For The Corporation your cities will increase in gold production (again, not sure by how much lol).

Ceremonial Burial gives you the Temple, right?

Ceremonial Burial gives you the Temple, right?
I believe the quote is, "Whoa, you are the first to discover Ceremonial Burial."

It gives you the opportunity to build one, but not a free one.

Its horseback riding not writing dude... and i think you get a free one for 1st like every other unit.

Also future tech ups your resources by 1 point. (food, production, and something else)

Oh okay. I thought it was just what gets unlocked when you study these technologies.
