I always find the Babylon AI building the Oracle before I can harass them. How much is it luck?
In the latest SVN slaves are not able to build slave plantations on rain forest whether they have a plantation on them or not.
The cotton in Central Africa is on jungle in the 600 AD scenario.
Slave Plantations cannot be built on Forest or Rainforest.
That's true, but previously it was possible to "upgrade" your existing plantations with slaves, which was kind of the intent.
Hee I had the Mongols spawn in the new world after I conquered Mexico again. Both times I must have had perfect timing. I got the conqueror event and conquered the Aztecs, and shortly after I took Tenochtitlan, the Mongols got a conqueror event on me, and a stack spawned in Mexico. Has anyone else experiencing this? Both times happened with the Byzantines.
It's kinda cool but I have a feeling it wasn't intended!
Yeah, to be honest I don't remember right now how the target cities are selected.
I get the feeling it's 3 cities the farthest from a point. (Constantinople? The capital? Some random point?)
I noticed the stack that spawned in Tenochtitlan actually meant to spawn in Budapest (I forgot what the Byzantium name for that cioty was). The reason was if I reloaded the save multiple times, the stack sometimes spawned in Budapest, and sometimes spawned in Tenochtitlan. I am not sure what was influencing it. I suspect the amount of units I have in the city influences it. The city with the least amount of units seems to get the stack?
Okay totally random thought but should the American UB be changed to a University replacement? I've always thought that the fact that the US has most of the world's leading universities is an important factor in its economic success, which makes them more worthy of inclusion than American consumerism.
No. European universities contributed a lot too, equally or more than USA. Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Quantum theory and Relativity to name a few were a product of Europe. On the other American consumerism is more important for USAn society and economy.
who actually says that? most people Ive heard who dont say American say US-American or Yank
Does anyone really say Yank?
British people from the WWII generation use it.
Definitely. However, if a public school building is ever added, the American university replacement should create extra unhappiness to simulate high school college stress.
I'll give it to you that consumerism is a huge part of the American economy, but it is a huge part of pretty much the entire western world, and the US's level of consumerism is just stereotyped more, not bigger than the rest of the Western world.
However, saying that American society is based off of American consumerism is also a stereotype that quite a few people would find offensive. It's like saying British society is based on tea and crumpets.
The private college education system in America is quite important for American society and has contributed greatly to the overall economy.
I've even heard the argument that the incoming brain drain from universities is making up for the problems in the domestic school system.
That's just ridiculous. British culture is of course based on tea entirely.
My girlfriend's Louisiana family calls me a Yankee, but somehow I think that's a different issue.
But more on topic, I am not personally offended by focusing on American consumerism. I believe this is part of what makes the country unique. UB's/UU's are going to inherently oversimplify and to some extent stereotype if you take them too seriously.
What kind of a university improvement do you envision? If it's just a generic +10% science I don't think that would add to the game. A wealth bonus doesn't seem to fit. Perhaps an extra statesman slot, that would be interesting. I can't think of what you would call the unique American University though. College?
Canadian culture is also entirely based of moose, maple syrup, and igloos.
People who can't laugh of stereotyping get offended too easily.
Alright, I think I might have overreacted there. Apologies. Maybe the university replacement could offer 1 specialist slot of each type (1 merchant, 1 statesman, 1 scientist, 1 artist, etc) to reflect the way the American college system puts a lot of different specialists into the world economy? Obviously if one of every type is too overpowered, some can be cut down.
