I'm curious to know how you guys think it stacks up compared to both plain Civ V and to Civ V with the CBP? I'm not very far into my first game yet so I only have some initial thoughts, I'm sure I'll have more as I go along. Here's what I've noticed so far: + City states relations are quite different and are far better than Civ V. Not sure if I like the CBP implementation or Civ VI implementation better yet, but either way I'm very happy with them + I really like the districts system and diplomacy, I'm interested to see how they go into late game. - No notifications about population or border growth is a huge disappointment, this is one of my favourite features of CP/EUI (not sure which it actually is) - The minimap is kind of hard to read - Maybe I'm just an old fogey but there's nowhere near enough contrast between unexplored areas and areas in the fog of war. I'm really struggling to read the map. For all this fuss about the art direction going for "clarity" over "realism" it seems to me like it's the complete opposite. Everything is basically brown mush until I look closer. Hopefully after a few games I get used to it. - The AI seems significantly worse than CP's AI. It seems around on par with Civ V. Hopefully they fix it up or it's easier to mod this time around.
