    20 is below the 25 base from privateer so I doubt that. I believe in that game the Portuguese had the GL which is one triangle, another could be caravel sight. The strength fits the caravel right. That makes sense for Portuguese being involved in the beginning of the exploration phase. What special ability does it have though

    Clearly multiple games from screenshots and they probably wouldn't give a UU inflated stats in a reveal. Its a caravel with plus 1 movement and another bonus probably.

    Also, both the castle/chateau-thingy and the fort thingy from the poster is visible here (same picture that Jabberwockxeno linked to)

    Confirmation that internal trade routes "create" extra food/production rather than transferring it:

    Are you saing that Carracks are going to be independently from the Nau, or as in the form as a Nau, I am fully aware that they are the same kind of ship

    If so France has seen a huge overhaul in Brave New World!

    How do you know? Perhaps it's just a replacement for the Caravel? Though I'd welcome new naval units.

    I can't understand why they went with Maria I for Portugal...

    Zulu confirmed for tan and brown color scheme, in the map in the screenshots.

    It's basically assyria, but desaturated. and the secondary color being darker.

    French workers are building a new improvement, maybe a Château.
    It looks like France is getting a giant overhaul. I wonder if we'll have to say goodbye to the French Foreign Legion.

    And the fort-thingy seems to be related to the sea

    Call this the dog that didn't bark: none of the screenshots shows any trading posts. Confirmation that they have been removed?

    If anyone else is finding the site annoying, I've saved the images to my flickr BNW folder linked here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/josiahkeen/sets/72157633069474841/

    I am really looking forward to Portuguese exploration and economics.

    Wow, so many amazing screenshots with new information.

    The city state has a new improvement that looks like some sort of Fort with a Harbor besides it. What do people make of that? Is the Brazilian trireme interacting with this structure, or just randomly placed beside it? Will this be related to trade routes?
