    This thread is to discuss changes for DLC 05 that don't appear on the official changelog. (But actually occurs in game). Or to clarify the effects of items listed in the original changlog. (For example, the actual tourism of Walls)

    These changes may seriously influence our Gameplay Strategy.

    I'll update all the found items here

    1: Plantation +2 Gold instead of +1, Globalization provides 2 extra gold instead of 1。

    2:"Nuclear Lover" Agenda works too early. (So that leaders with this agenda tend to denounce you for not having nuclear weapons in ancient era.)

    3: You get urban defense from Steel instead of Civil Engineering! (Capturing Late-game AI cities become much easier, also avoid the scene that 2nd and 3rd level of walls obsolete before they're unlocked.)

    4: Quarry get +2 Gold for Banking instead of +1, Cartography give 2 Gold to finshing boats instead of 1. While Mercantile give 2 Hammer to Camps, instead of the original 1 hammer.

    5: City-state elimination no longer counts as a meeting (So that the eureka of Political Philosophy becomes hard to achieve now)

    6: Aurora visual effect on polar areas.

    7: AI begin fixing Spaceports

    8: Sea resources no longer count as resources belongs to that continent.( So that there's more luxury for players!:thumbsup::thumbsup:)

    9: Nubia starting bias near mine-based luxury and strategic resources!

    10: Walls Grant 1 Tourism, Medival 2 and Renaissance 3 after Conservation.
    Hint: you can still build walls after conservation. This "modern ancient walls" really attracts tourists.
    St. George now grants 9 tourism, compared with a Great Musician's 8, a Great Artist's 5, a Prophet's 8 and a Great Writer's 8, that engineer is really a tourist attracter.
    Also, repairing them now cost 10 times more hammers than the original.

    11:But Bastion and Limes (as well as rams and towers) still obsolete at Public Works, so build your walls early!


    With the newest patch you can get extremely fast science and culture speed!
    I managed to finish an immortal CV (Gotm 19) at T118 with Computers and Cultural Heritage before or at 1AD.

    Note that the camp (which I reported) is an error on my side: Camp still gives +1 gold. However, plantation (the other "gold improvement") did get a buff and now gives +2 gold instead of +1 gold.

    For me the AI are settling cities a lot quicker now. I'm on Emperor difficulty in the Classical era, yet Poland already has 8 cities and England 7.

    Gandhi just scolded me for 'proliferating nuclear weapons', -6 in relations.

    Is this a new thing? The first time I've seen this. The problem is, it's 1560 BC.

    Oh, nice. I have such a hard time reading that thing. I just wish you could make it larger directly on the interface.

    Something new that I've noticed is the civ select screen. I double checked to make sure I had no mods enabled.

    That must be it. I was thinking they had changed the font as it definitely looked different to my eyes.

    A city state just gave me a quest to destroy a barbarian encampment. I haven't seen that before in Civ VI.

    Apostles now have a symbol under their unit icon that indicates to which religion they belong.

    Also, you can upgrade units from the reports screen.

    They've always done that, though it is rarer than the other missions, probably because the camp has to spawn pretty close to the CS to begin with.

    That's not new. I've only seen it a few times, but it's happened before.

    Edit: ninja'd :p

    That was already possible, wasn't it? Not sure, could've been the NQ EUI mod.

    This actually happens in previous versions, too.

    Just had what I suspect is a slight bug, but since I forgot to screenshot I'm gonna check if anyone else had this before posting in the bug section: Teddy just popped up and offered 1GPT for open borders....except he didn't accept his own trade suggestion. Can't remember to have seen that pre-patch. Anyone else seen this?
