Very nice indeed.
However, I do believe that "Most efficient" is subject to play-style, play-time, available space, goods deposits and militairy preference/strategy.

Thanks and I completely agree, although I don't have another idea >.<

I agree with Lodroth , the efficient ways are different for different individuals. As for me, I am concentrating on my military and attacking strategy and it seems working now as i gathered around 65000 points within lesser than 2 months and reached within the first 25 in Greifental. Thanks to FOE for this wonderful game of strategy.
