As of last week my Civics rebalancing had only made it thru most of the Classical Era with some Gov't and Finance categories going a bit further. It was just this past week that I made some adjustments to Gov't Civic in Eras beyond Medieval! And I had only barely touched Any of Pepper2000's Civics in the 5 added Later eras from his mod mod. It take much game play to get a feel for the Civics The 1st 2 or 3 Civics in most categories by rule have to be ladderish. To build foundations for the mid to later Civics to come. Especially with the Number of Civics we have factoring as well. Sorry that bothers you. But When to change IS a Big Decision! It is not a trifle. I also am striving for interconnectedness between several categories. This too takes time and testing. No matter Who balances Civics there will Always Be Dissenters. So the one doing it must have a thick skin. Trivia note, Every Modder that attempted to balance Civics, with the exception of StrategyOnly, eventually gave up and left the forum. Think about that for a moment. I am open to suggestions, but don't get upset if I do not implement them right away or at all. But I do consider and try them When I get constructive suggestions. Being down right rude over it though will get you "ignored". Not saying you are or even have ever been Faustmouse. But there have been several others that were/still are. I do not converse with them any more. Finally I know I've been slow at this Civics rebalance. But to be fair I have had my work interrupted by major changes Multiple times that made the versions I was going to put up canceled or bad. By the way nice to see you posting again.
