Hey guys, I'm back after a too long period without a windows computer to play on. This hole time I've been keeping an eye on the forums and all the developments, but I found it hard to post opinions and suggestions without having the means to play the game. Anyway, I'm back and very happy with the changes so far, I enjoyed a Harappa game as first thing I did with my new computer haha. Actually civ 4, and very specifically DoC, was one of the reasons why I went back to windows . Leo, thanks once for all the hard and excellent work! More on the topic of religions, I would strongly recommend to have a generic "Christianity" before the schism. Without the schism there's no point in using "Orthodoxy" or "Catholicism" as descriptive of the religion that existed then. As you must all be aware, choosing either would also imply granting more legitimacy to one branch than the other. To solve the need of having civilizations be rewarded for building wonders and/or researching techs, I'd suggest that the same trigger event could work to found one or the other religion, and have the other automatically branch out. Ie: Greece, byzantium, etc., would found Orthodoxy always, with Catholicism and being automatically founded in Rome; Rome or a western european civ (the vikings?) would always found Catholicism, with Orthodoxy being automatically founded in Constantinople. As a reward for founding your branch (instead of waiting), whichever branch triggers the schism should have a higher spread rate for their religion thereafter. Could this be a good compromise between playability and cultural-political sensitivity?
