    Civ6 6otM 03 Opening actions

    Turn 100 Screenshot: - Where did you settle your city? Capital settled in place, it just looked like an amazing start spot with a good mix of resources. - What did you research and which policies did you choose and why? Mining, Astronomy, Pottery, Irrigation, Animal Husbandry, Writing...

    News: Civ VI 6otM 03 Announcement

    Was just sitting down to start playing this and just re-read Hojo's / Japan's traits and somehow I had never noticed the second-half of Hojo's leader abilities before. He gets the UD price for three districts (Holy, Theatre, Encamp') plus if he places them well he gets the Japan bonus on...

    News: Civ VI 6otM 03 Announcement

    Hmm, lots of stone for a Stonehenge site. On Prince, it might be do-able. Japan, in-land, on Pangea. No wonder it on Prince this time, not a start that makes the most of their traits.

    War Horn

    "Oh no! The War Horn! Look out, in about 8 turns that means some angry Warrior units are going to reach my border and impale themselves upon my Infantry!" That said, I have to agree that was a great audio clip. There are a handful like that which I wish were included, including the Civ4 "Baba...

    How to found 10 Cities under 100 turn.

    Getting 10 cities in under 100 turns isn't too bad, especially if you go German and steal from City-States with your vs. C-S buffed troops. But founding 10... 6 I can do easy. 8 is pushing it. If I have a good setup for production, and with mountains blocking barbarians/greedy AIs so I don't...

    6otM 02 Opening Actions

    That is true for all of the UDs, (Unique Districts) that Civs get. The Greek Acropolis (replaces Theatre District), the German Hanza (replaces Industrial Zone), English Royal Navy Dockyard (replaces Harbor), and Russian Lavra (replaces Holy Site). They also require only half the normal amount of...

    [vanilla] Some spy suggestions

    That is it exactly. Basically similar to the diplomatic vision you get when you meet a civ and exchange capital locations. You get a peek at the cities state at that point in time, but no actual access to it via Trade or anything else until you send a unit over there. More of a hint "Hey, look...

    [vanilla] Some spy suggestions

    Yeah, the more I think about it the more I have to agree that the "Map Theft" would be too powerful. Maybe if it exposed 1 random city (that you spy isn't already in) for 5 turns, instead of their entire map, it might be more balanced but I am still not entirely sure. That is a France specific...

    [vanilla] Some spy suggestions

    One that I would like, which is almost more of a Civ balance then espionage change, is to give Catherine of France one free spy when they first become available. Extra spy slots for her isn't a great bonus when she has to burn production before being able to use her benefit. Getting a free spy...

    Monty and his Eagle-Warriors...

    This is, imho, the saving grace for Eagle Warriors. My Aztec games have me using them into the Ren' Era because they remained viable troops with promotions from fighting neighbors and the bonus from the massive amount of luxury amenities I acquired from conquering other Civs and using the...

    Is this game too easy?

    My experience with this hasn't been that they don't research the tech, but that they don't seem to recognize the Strategic Resource that they need to be able to build the units. I've seen even late game the AI settle cities in positions that got them maybe slightly more food, but were in a...

    How many cities?

    It has been a bit of a re-learning curve after C5:BNW, but basically I settle cities now until I run out of convenient space, or I just get tired of escorting Settlers and start using my troops to take other peoples cities instead. I often also have to build cities hella-far away from my...

    Victory! - Turn 291, 684 Score How many cities did you settle or capture? Counting capital, settled only 10. Captured 2 from America (Washington and Charleston). What did you prioritize for research and policies? I pivoted a bit after turn 100. Writing up my "Opening Actions" post had me...
