Well, in the prehistoric era, everyone is at war with everyone, so doesn't that kinda reflect this? In hindsight, I agree with you on the 10% tax thing. How much tax do you usually run? I don't think it should be much lower than 20% though. Also, I haven't gotten to the Religious civics yet. I'm working on Power/Rule, and then I'll move onto Religion. I haven't changed anything in the Religion category, so it didn't really happen "again". And you really don't think my recent updates have improved? So many of the civics have had their "fluff" taken away. The Government Civics should have the most "direction" out of all the categories, so I'm sorry if you think they "overlap". Thanks for these new buttons Hydro, you're the bomb! I appreciate your concern Sgtslick, but he's just voicing his concerns. Its what I want from you guys. Well, to be fair, I have been reducing War to below 25% for the civics I've touched, and the Religion category is yet to receive its "update". Which ones are you referring to? And when you say "simple", do you mean "vanilla simple"? Well, yes. Decreased maintenance have given more . Also, what do you mean "Civic Option"? Yes, this is many games. But it is also realistic. I can't think of many ancient civilizations who adopted "Closed Borders". China/Japan, but not many, in the grand scheme of things.
