    Doesn't Stele grant +2 Faith, though?

    A trade route has to be possible it is not guaranteed faith. And the terrain has to be right for a faith pantheon.
    Edit: Also a trade route so early would most likely get plundered by barbarians.

    There are at least 3 Civs in G&K that are guaranteed to get a Pantheon - Ethiopia, Celts and Maya.

    It's not that big of a deal. Plus it's a high-risk high-reward scenario.

    I have no problems with the UA, it does seem interesting to me. To be honest, I find the limitation of internal routes to be more troublesome than the actual pantheon/religion rushing.

    Celts aren't guaranteed a religion. Forest bias doesn't lend itself to faith generating pantheons.

    Doesn't matter, God-King always works.

    Besides, they'll get by at max T10 with a barely decent start.

    God-King isn't going to get a person a religion.

    +5 Faith between T30 and T50 is, though.

    Dependent on difficulty. This thread is getting off topic shall we agree to disagree for now?

    Shrine+Capital with 3 Forest adjacent+second city with 1 Forest adjacent+God-King is +5 Faith, though.

    Nevertheless, anything that can be modified in the Civ?

    We are not against you Natan (at least I'm not), but some of your responses are a bit weird, and sometimes seem unrelated to the topic at hand.

    But if anyone is against you, it is not because you are Israeli.

    Also, thank you for reminding me of the Archive. I may continue working on it today (came back from Easter holiday yesterday).

    Natan, it's not so much an anti-you view from this website, but rather a "what the hell" view.

    In terms of your Churchill concept, I find the UA interesting given that (as JFD's civ indicates) people tend to consider the navy and Air Force when thinking of Churchill and The United Kingdom's contribution to the Second World War. Not to say it's a bad idea - just interesting - I wonder if the UA could be retooled to provide infantry units from allied city states or puppets (to indicate the level of support from the Empire's colonies)

    I also find the part of the UA that leads to cities taking less damage from air units strange. I can understand that it is a reference to the Blitz and whatnot - it just seems a bit tacked on - I guess, like it doesn't fit the overall design. Sorry I can't be more helpful than that.

    Is there no more interesting possible name for the Unit - I believe Commando is already appropriately taken by the Boers and just seems a little nondescript elsewhere. The bonus in foreign lands doesn't seem to fit the rest of the design as the Spitfire and passive seem geared to make Churchill a defensive turtle (which is an apt, if bizzare image), whilst the foreign lands bonus seems to encourage aggressive play.

    I hope this helps, just my opinions on the matter.

    I do think an Atlee civ would be quite interesting in terms of an England split - an often criminally underrated prime minister, who doesn't seem to be considered as much as Churchill in these matters.

    I wanted Churchill to be an aggressive turtle. About the names... there is. I will make some changes.

    Easter is the celebration of Christ's death and resurrection. It is celebrated around Passover since the Passion took place during Passover. That is most likely why they have similar names in Hebrew (they are similar in Norwegian as well: Påske (Easter) and Pesach (Passover)).

    Both share the same name in Portuguese. I think only Germanic languages (and maybe Slavic ones) have different names.

    That said, I'll try to get some Lua knowledge so I can start coding better quality mods - and maybe some of your suggestions, Natan and Urdnot_Scott and everyone.

    Churchill having an infantry focus makes absolutely 0 sense, the British army was abysmally poor throughout the whole war - our navy was by far the best bit and any churchill civ without this as its main focus doesn't work historically Natan. This is what I mean by 'do more research'
