Sometimes there's no recommendation for a building in a city, because it essentially has everything. So, I choose wealth, research or culture. Later, when I get a new tech, I want to cancel the wealth/research/culture build (easy enough to do - I just clear it in the queue). When I do this, the city effectively builds nothing, without going back to suggesting (recommending) a build. I'm obliged to pick something and wait for it to complete before I get a "recommendation" for the best build.

How can I get back to the recommended builds after wealth/research/culture, without having to build something arbitrarily?

  • Never experienced this before. I will try it out next time :). Do you have any of the expansions or only the plain Civ4?

  • @bazmegakapa I'm running only the plain Civ4 as far as I know. I can reproduce the problem at any time by simply choosing wealth/research/culture (I don't necessarily have to have "no suggestions", but that's the context where I pick wealth/research/culture). Dec 6 '12 at 19:44
  • Do you run the latest patch?

  • I'm a little rusty with Civ 4 and don't have a copy handy to check this for myself. Is the "recommended" next structure displayed as part of the construction completed dialog?

I haven't tested this, but if you go into the City View screen and tell it to not build anything (shift-click the build list in the bottom left), then I think when you exit the city screen it will pop up a list of recommended builds as normal.
