    It makes sense to stall out a Gaulish conquering spree in the Medieval.

    I thought that Basil reused Genghis' animations--Genghis is notably stiff compared to some of the other Civs, so his animations stand out a little.

    Basil's well documented loss of two fingers during the wars in Bulgaria is represented in Civ:

    I like them. It also gives it a nice feeling of different ages - an offensive Classical, a turtle-ing/culture Medieval.

    No need to purposely avoid Ironworking anymore.

    Venice confirmed to replace Antioch. Seems to put a damper on any promises of an Italy in the Frontier Pass.

    Venice has same effect as Antioch did, just name and icon change.

    Another thought: Status of Zeus might be a very competitive wonder considering how most of the AI love to build an Encampment in every single city. Human player might (need) to play as Japan/Zulu/China to have a chance.

    Yeah I like to see them when settling a new city too, that's the only time you need them. Would prefer if they could take it off for the stream as least.

    Seeing Byzantium just absolutely level these walls is pretty eye-opening.
    Pretty big buff to any Civ that likes Pastures. Australia keeps getting better!...

    In Dramatic Ages - each additional city adds +3 era score needed for Golden Age. Currently +1. :eek:
    I did +2 test in a mod last year and it was such a challenge avoiding Dark Ages and earning Golden Ages. Can't imagine +3!

    More era score per city required in dramatic ages, makes avoiding dark ages with big civs more difficult

    YES. You guys might be better than me, but I find it very hard to avoid at least one or two. The AI typically gets dark ages about 40% of the time in my experience.

    It seems the Byzantium city list covers from Balkan to Anatolia. Ankara is also a Byzantium city (spelled as Ancyra).

    Yeah, but often Terracotta takes a long time, and Zeus has the same adjacency rules, right? So it might not fall that early.
