    As mentioned in our stream, the fix for the tourism bug with Monopolies is coming. Turnaround for bugs in the wild can take a while—we have to hear about it, confirm it, test it, make sure everything is okay. In the meantime, keep in mind that the multiplier only gets compounded if you have multiple monopolies—industries and corporations alone have no effect.

    I like the balance changes and the realignment of policy card slots to better reflect the use case of each government. I also like the AI changes, they should (hopefully) help it handle the late-game a bit better. Of course, with the AI making so many sub-optimal empire-building decisions along the way, most games are already decided before that point... I hope that aspect of the AI gets some attention in future patches.
    Thanks for making an official statement. As long as it's noticed and being worked on, then I'm happy. :)

    Carl said on the livestream that they have changed color on some of the policy cards. No information on that in the patch notes.

    Sorry about it not being in the patch notes! The Craftsmanship, Colonial Offices, and Colonial Taxes policy cards have all changed types.

    ¿Only two? :shake:

    There go my hopes of creating era-based or continent-based pools to taylor a game. (For it to have a random civ of each continent/culture, or a random civ of a different era, in example)

    :cry:

    Portuguese dominance at sea will be reestablished! Pax Lusitana!

    Check out the February Livestream Discussion. You'll find the information you need there.

    Wow, that earth goddess nerf, RIP. Although honestly, it's still a fairly good pantheon. I like the government balance changes and natural wonder balances (although I play with terra mirabilis anyway, so I'm not sure they will effect me unless I play on Switch again... which I won't do until the hall of fame is fixed)

    I didn't expect a moopoly tourism fix this quickly, but I was hoping for a "what would make this deal work?" button fix and the "people become friends anyway even though you reject them" fix. Hopefully next patch.

    Nerf Earth Goddess? Fine, but 95% of the pantheons are still crap

    Bull Moose Teddy and the Preserve now exist: it makes sense that they would nerf Earth Goddess. For those who have the NFP, though. For those who don't, may they rest in peace.

    I didn't realize but the leader selection pool also lets you create a pool of leaders for your random-leader game, thus excluding all the ones you just don't want to play. That's great!

    Is anyone else going to talk about how tall play is being buffed with the Audience Chamber and Entertainment Complex Building Buffs?

    Wood Elves.

    Should be useful to identify Horse resources in advance.

    We're missing a Clan that spawns next to Iron, for the same purpose. I'm leaving this suggestion here for a modder. Chariot Clan could probably be removed.

    I didn't watch the stream and so I didn't catch this address of the tourism bug, I think it would be fair to assume that I am in the majority of users in that respect. A tweet or some other announcement would be appreciated. Thanks for stating something on the matter here. I think you should expect to take some flak for this one though, for two reasons. First the Monopolies modifier doesn't seem like some corner case that could have only arisen when people started playing the game, so mentions of the turnaround time of bugs in the wild doesn't really wash. Second this is a mode that so many of us were hyped for and wish to keep active in all our games. Even if workarounds are available its disappointing to feel like you can't play the full realisation of the game mode.

    Lastly it would be great to know what the vision for this mode is. You mention that "the multiplier only gets compounded if you have multiple monopolies—industries and corporations alone have no effect" and I'm not sure if you're saying that's a good thing or a bad thing

    People must play on different settings to me, I found it really weak as was with so few tiles being breathtaking - honestly I thought it needed a bump not a nerf!

    Thanks for posting! Is the upcoming fix also going to improve the AIs capacity/urge to improve luxuries?

    Ehh, until population can more directly translate to science (or culture) like it did with Civ 5's libraries, it'll never really work. Civ 6 specialists are too weak and there's no proportional yield

    Any change to policy cards? The patch note mentioned nothing about policy card change.
