    Oh right. But those were major commodities historically, can't not have those in Civ. Probably still have to ere on the side of caution with that kind of stuff though, and having a leader drinking wine could be problematic to keeping that E rating.

    ESRB are kinda prudes tbh.

    Tobacco doesn't really affect ESRB ratings, I believe.

    It does, but it may not push it past E10+, which is what Civ already has.

    Believe it or not, four Kirby games are given the E10+ rating!

    Spoiler Kirby games with the E10+ rating :

    • Kirby's Return to Dream Land
    • Kirby's Dream Collection
    • Kirby Battle Royale
    • Kirby: Star Allies

    I thought "sinister" is what they were going for with CdM. :p

    Indeed, but not more so. A clearer beverage balances her sinister objectives and gives her a front. Spies usually act the part.

    She's dressed in black, swirls her wine (the feminine equivalent of mustachio-twirling), and introduces herself by saying that she has a great desire to uncover all your secrets. She's not exactly being subtle here. :p

    I think the rating is such because the civilopedia also reference opium.

    I feel like I really underappreciate the art given how small everything is...

    The only art I dont like are the units, leaders and forests. The persons are too Disney, and the forests are just a few trees. I think forests would look a lot better if they were a bit more dense like in civ5.

    I kinda wished they gave more diversity to the trees, like acacia, Birch, palm, Sakura, Maple (Autumn) or Willow, gives some vibrant colors on the map.

    My only gripe with the units is that there are too few models in each unit. The twelve or so models in V's units just looked better and made the scale of battles feel a bit more epic.

    When I first heard that VI was going to introduce corps and armies, I assumed that was why your basic unit had four models: that way, when you combined two into a corps, the corps would have eight models and the same for armies with twelve models. A bit disappointing when I found out there was no visual change except for some stars over the unit's nameplate.

    I haven't tried any mods that increases the unit models. I suppose they might consume too much memory.

    It was a nice feature of Civ V that different continents used different colour palates for the trees.

    To be fair, I don't care too much about those different colour palates, but I do want actual dense forests as well as different kinds of forest for different climates.

    R&F is a missed opportunity to add deciduous woods as an alternative that is choppable and replantable like their coniferous counterparts.

    I do appreciate that not only tobacco and wine are in the game as resources, but also whales. I'd hate to see even that get dumbed down by offense takers.

    I think you'll find it depends on what level you're computer is handling VI at. Mine is low-ish, so my forests are sparse; but I'm certain that images from other players show more dense ones.
