    Agh, I guess I'm too used to having the ressource symbols.

    Yes, whales, a couple fish, atoll, sheep. It is not a bad little island.

    The AI apparently decided to make up for all the schizophrenic, hypocritical, jerky behavior they normally subject me to by doing something genuinely nice for once:

    Spoiler My birthday present :




    Yes, I am the only civ in the entire world running Freedom, and I used all my delegates to vote against the Embargo City States resolution, and yet Freedom became world ideology. The AIs literally threw their votes away for no other purpose than helping me win the game. I honestly don't know what to say, I have never experienced such selfless kindness by an AI before! :eek:

    (Not mine obviously, but I found it on imgur and it works here :p )

    "Anyway, here's Wonder wall by Oasis..."

    Spoiler :


    Maybe the AI that voted for it wanted to adopt Freedom down the line. What difficulty were you running on?

    Prince I think? Whatever the alleged default is, number 4 I think.

    Sorry for missing this earlier...
    Nah, just good play on your part!
    You are the only one with an ideology. That is excellent timing for WI vote. Civs that like you will vote for the resolutions you put up when they don't care either way.
    That is good play. It is not unusual for AIs to be unbribable for the vote you really care about (say WI or WR), but you can bribe them to vote the way you want on the other resolution (e.g., banning a lux). That still ties up their vote, so if you have a few CS allies, that gives you enough votes to force the resolution you actually care about.
    With your example, you actually wanted both resolutions to pass, so that is tougher. But AIs voting for your WI when they do not already have an ideology is not rare (so they say). I take it that you did not have DoF going with Sweden!

    I recently finished a one city challenge as Venice (I needed a win as them anyway :p ), and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect start:

    Spoiler :


    Who needs the great wall when nature protects you anyway? And to make it easier on me, Shaka wiped out 2 civs, and almost 3 (I saved Constantinople) making my culture win a freebie.

    This seemed to be a thing in my latest game... City States having a load of their workers being stolen by Barbarians. The latter one in particular was quite amusing - by the time I had returned most of Tellesta's Workers (I took a couple for myself), I had over 300 Influence with them!

    Sometimes I just love how surreal fictional mods can make Civ:

    Spoiler :




    I wonder what the Vatican wanted it for?

    It's the Castle Volkihar mod, one of the Elder Scrolls wonders DJSHenniger made. One of its effects is that you get a Vampire Lord, which apparently counts as a Great Person... and thus city states can ask to consult with one. :p

    That sounds like a fun mod, what does the Vampire Lord do? Besides the obvious, I mean. :p

    Echo the above, as I can't find the mod on Steam Workshop.. Is it under another name?

    The Vampire Lord apparently heals all friendly units within 3 tiles of him, although units trained in the city with the wonder heal up after killing enemies. So lots of vampires. :p

    You can find the mod on Steam here .

    Apparently city-states can gift you Merchants of Venice. Here is peeking his head out of a Kasbah when I got him.

    Spoiler :


    Maybe not funny but definitely ridiculous.

    I've had that happen just recently when I was playing as the Japanese, it's like the city state offers their complete sovereignty to you.
