A use for future technologies

When I research the last technology, I usually immediately stop all research and start selling libraries and stuff, because it costs me without giving me anything - except for future techs, which are useless.
But we can fix that. I thought of a few things future techs could boost globally, maybe 1% per tech:
  • Trade
  • Production
  • Unit veterancy chance
  • Unit movement points
  • Unit initial veteran level(might be OP)
  • City radius square(not sure if that's such a good idea)
There's obviously a lot more. I think each of these, and how much it is increased per future tech, could be defined in either game.ruleset or techs.ruleset, like this:

Code: Select all

[future_techs]
trade = 1
production = 5
unit_move = 2
This would increase total trade output by 1% per future tech, production in every city by 5% per tech and unit movemen points by 2% per future tech.
Tell me what you think!

I have been thinking something along those lines, but have never started to implement.

IMHO it would be much better some random new unity or improvement. No idea on how to achieve this, anyway!
