    We are already discussing this video in the "Egypt and Cleopatra" thread.

    Egypt looks good. :)

    Should be a really fun builder type Civ.

    It should be renamed. I stopped looking at that thread weeks ago and had no idea this video was up until I decided to check youtube on my own.

    I would also have preferred it have it's own thread myself.

    It was in a new thread, but a mod thought it would be better to hide it on an old post on page 14 or something.

    Yeah I didn't get it, yeah merge all the "new video!!!" threads into one but I thought it deserved to be separate from the pre-video speculation.

    Egypt looks really good. I thought Cleopatra's agenda was hinting at a type pf diplomatic warmonger, but it looks like a really good and balanced builder civ.

    It would appear that they have a list of continent names that either actually existed or are at least theoretical. The first continent name we caught in the very first gameplay video, "Lemuria", is a thing.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemuria_(continent)


    I imagine the ingame list should be pretty expansive. They'll probably be randomized from game to game - randomized naming lists aren't hard to code at all.

    Either way it's a very nice touch.

    I think each new video should be its own thread. I've been obsessed with finding more information, and I realized something might be up when I saw Egypt was getting a lot of discussion, but I had to go back a few pages to find the actual video. It just makes it easier for people to see new content for the people who aren't here 24/7.

    Egypt looks pretty interesting. A variety of bonuses, but all geared towards being able to build up with good religion and culture while making other civilizations like you. I like that we haven't seen any civs yet that just look... bland to me, as though it were playing a non-unique civ, as sometimes happened in V.

    And all of the city names are in Greek, despite there being available sources for the Egyptian names of these cities :wallbash:

    yup. Where do we discuss the fact that two continents "Avalonia" and "Valburra" have been named? Or that Kabul was revealed. Where do we discuss the weird sword icons next to all the trade routes?

    EDIT: whoops looks like it wasn't "Valburra." I posted the real name somewhere in that 20 page Cleopatra thread.

    And "Rome" is really "Roma", and "Moscow" is really "Moskva", etc.... get over it.

    Yes, I agree. It's a little thing but it's a very nice touch. :)

    Valbaara. The other continent name is Valbaara. Also a real continent that parts of Australia and Africa?Asia? used to be.

    Edit: also, Mort Q you oughta consider updating OP with all the info gleaned from the new vid.

    So part of Egypt's unique ability is that they can build any wonder on a floodplain. Is that right?

    at 0:44 I think it's the Collossus you can spot down in left corner - one a 1-tile island. Nice..

    I think it means that other civs can't build districts or wonders on floodplains (except for some pecific wonders like the Pyramids).

    Very cool, I like it.
    Although I don't really understand the part about floodplains. Did she insinuate that normally you can't build districts and wonders on floodplains?
