Like more challenge and mid and late game is entertaining.
Speaking of which, anyone interested?
I have another friend who wants to play, but he wants 3 or more people in the game to help fill the map.
District adjacency bonuses increase by 5% for each pop point above 5, and 10% for each pop point above 10. So a pop 15 city generates 50% more...
They're hilarious once you get them up to that level. They attack twice without retaliation @ 60 strength, have 3 movement, can move through...
Or should you just ICS?
Show me that you can do better (T1, T25, T100 save provided).
[Good map and civ to compare ICS vs a more "planned"...
The three campuses (no library or university) shown in the middle are generating +42 science/turn. There's another...
I got two +14 campuses as Dutch.
Anyone's got a +16? It's doable with Dutch and two geothermal fissures.
The +2 envoys upon levying city state makes a big difference. It means AI can't flip city state easily after levy.
It also means +2 envoys with a...
Any other easy to mispronounce names in the game?
The reason is because they increased the Golden Age limit by +3 (27 instead of 24 for Classical) making it almost impossible to get Golden Age in...
1. Their UU is now decent/good.
2. With Sphinxes you're guaranteed a reasonably early pantheon, which means you can skip the faith card and go...
With the recent changes to resources, what is the top UU?
Huge map. Standard settings.
Not Aztec, Sumeria, or Nubia. They're still the best if some AI starts close to you. But there's...
Doesn't even work for melee units like swords.
Like WTF. They only have 9 cities, and I have suz of Bologna, so the AI bonuses are making them cheat like crazy.
On Deity/ Seven Seas it's pretty tough. The AI's econ is a lot stronger. Average AI is on like 8-10 cities by the middle of the classical era....
Like loyalty mechanics should be disabled in the first 100 turns. Only kicks in later. The issue right now is if your start sucks and you end up...
Person A makes a map and plays it with Carthage.
Person B plays on the map with everything the same but with Indonesia.
More fun that way. Also, prevents the "8 ships in one pond with nowhere to go" phenomenon.
Separate names with a comma.
