What is your target for your primary techs?
What is your target for secondary techs?

Ex I aim for 20 tech per acre on my primary ones and 10 per acre on my secondary ones.

I have been using this my entire earth career from games.swirve.com/earth to this earth empires and all the time between. Am I outdated, does this still apply, is this the best?

I have never even thought about "tech per acre". Just max it all out. Max the primary tech first and max the others when tech prices get a little lower

When I’m cashing on this server I’m going 50. If farming I’m going 40ish. I try real hard to keep mil strat above 120 and weapons above 130.

Interesting, ok thanks for the responses. At a certain point to keep buying tech is pointless. To achieve 100 percent maxed out seems a complete waste of money. To get close seems worth it and my old little formula seemed to always do me fine before I started stockpiling cash instead of wasting on more tech.

I rarely think about it as tech per acre but %-ages. That said it depends. I usually calculate if the turns left in the set will generate more income than the tech I bought cost for my income tech/techs. Military tech I get to the $35/bushel threshold which is just under 20 tech per acre, tho. And when it comes to mil strat and weapons I usually don't feel I can afford to get all that much of.

Well yes I dont mean literally maxed and it is an asymptote curve. I just mean getting close, most close on the primary tech

Do the math, x amount of tech will cost y and profit z through the end of stocking. These numbers will always be different. But generally the lower the tech prices the higher the optimal tech %

I use the eestats tech calculator to do a lot of these calculations.
