    Dutch: Orange/ White;
    Cartage: Grey/ Purple (didn't like it, but it's okay);
    Celts: Dark Green/ Light Blue (didn't like it).

    Do we already know the Mayan's and Byzantine's colors? There is that Yellow/ Dark Green UU (Is that dark green? I'm a bit daltonic), which may be Mayan. There's also that Baby Blue/ Purplish-Blue civ in the mini-map... new civ or the Byzantines got the most ******ed color they could give them?

    Well the expansion's not completed yet, right? Could be a placeholder for something. (Like most of the things people are picking at here, I guess.)

    True. But in the ss in question the icon represent a religion right? Prague in the ss had a Cross in the same place.

    Yes. That Gatling Gun has a different icon than the Machine Gun.

    The Great Admiral doesn't have any tile improvemnt, at least not one for in the ocean.

    I don't think the Huns are another civ.
    I think were looking at another city state.
    A new barbarian one I think.

    You can see the same type of mine just west of the artillery on the orange side. If you look at the strategic resources, they have 4 aluminum, so I'm fairly certain those are aluminum mines.

    Now there's a great name - from Civ 2 IIRC? As the Celt cities seem to be Welsh, Scottish and Irish, then the Mumbles might just be making a comeback with this expansion ;).

    Also Dido committed suicide as a result of unrequited love. (If my memory of high school Virgil is correct.

    Zulu are clearly in.... as the previous poster pointed out in the Prophet screen shot.

    You can see them using the double bonus over rough terrain. Unless the blue color are Celtics and that color is for Mayan.

    That weird icon looks more Mayan to me. I'd think an Impi would have a shield and spear icon. Also, that blue color could be the Byzantines or some unknown.

    I'm not sure.

    I think I'd go for the Impi as well, but it's hard to tell...

    Not for industrial units. To make a musketman perhaps.

    Maybe they're bringing back barbarian cities
