    I feel like I'm the only one who wants to see them animated in all their glory. So I say bring them on! :cool:

    Faith + Culture is my jam, so that seems pretty cool. Little disappointed that the ability bonuses are "bonus faith from stuff you already do" and "passive bonus faith and science by doing basically nothing". Doesn't seem super engaging. Like someone said before, I guess the goal is to churn out as much Faith as humanly possible and buy your way to victory, letting the LUA bolster your tech.

    i used to like playing culture vics on lower difficulties but now that i play immortal i just didn’t them tedious

    I’ve played for culture vics twice on immortal, with cyrus and trajan, and both times, I just end up getting a diplo victory, since I’m good at guessing the choices on proposals that the AI will pick, and then by the time I’m working my way to get a culture vic, I’m so close to a diplo vic that it’s more worth my time to build the diplo wonders and fulfill aid requests than slog through the culture process—which, speaking of, has become nearly impossible without using rock bands, which is cool but also disappointing bcs if you’re not faith-focused, it becomes really hard to go for a culture vic

    Does anybody else think Menelik's facial features are oddly Caucasian-looking?

    Traditionally, Ethiopians and East Africans are known for having pretty distinctive facial features that are not unlike what you'd see in people from Central Asia or Europe. I thought he looked about right.

    My fingers are actually this long I am not even joking

    If you look at the solomonids and other dynasties they are actually fairly pale relatively speaking. Look at Haile and Lalibela

    A bunch of new threads regarding the new update are being created in the first page because this one has fallen down to the second page and people can't see it... so BUMP.

    I'll also use this thread to list any stuff that I notice while playing that either wasn't mentioned in the patch notes or might not have been clear (or that I'm unaware of).

    Ethiopia's bonus +1 Faith yield from improved resources is not attached to the improvement itself, so you're not required to actually work the tile.

    Is anyone else finding Civ to be less stable now? In my Ethiopia game, its crashing out (or going in to a permanent please wait) every 10 turns or so.

    Anyone experiencing a bug where the Secret Societies pop-ups aren't triggered? Not only that, but I'm also unable to pick a dedication, and I'm stuck and unable to continue (no way am I shift-entering through the entire game).

    I've seen a lot of console users find similiar bug. But why it's affecting me is beyond me and super frustrating. And yes i already reported it to Firaxis/2k.

    It seems you only have a chance to encounter a secret society by doing a certain action. It is not guaranteed and you may have to find multiple goody huts to discover the voidsingers for example

    Is this working as intended? I find it odd. My unit is not on a hill.

    You gain a Governor Title when you encounter each Society for the first time, not just the first.

    Are faith purchases via Monumentality or Grand Master's Chapel still working, in either pre or post updated games?

    Loaded a game from yesterday, and the GMC does not work.

    Haven't built the GMC yet, but Monumentality is working as expected for me.

    The minimap seem to be also improved. City dots are now smaller than ever.

    Not a bug. See here from ealier today in the patch notes discussion thread.
    Yes, that's how those sorts of modifiers have always worked.

    Sending delegations to Deity AI the turn you meet them is no longer guaranteed if you have different Secret Societies.
