    So looks like the 3rd Religious unit really was the Inquisitor. Apostles occupy a pretty awkward space then, with the abilities of both missionaries and inquisitors.

    Also love love love the Mission. I was hoping to see something like that.

    I'm sure it is that way. Make the bonus really good.
    Also: I notice a lot of strategic resources on the map in this video.

    Edit: why is his name translated to Philip II? I would have preferred Felipe II. Is Pedro just left as Pedro because it would get trouble with the russian Peter otherwise?

    Yay I guessed right and found my favourite civ in the base game! Phillip looks amazing and the abilities are quite interesting. Also conquistadors are beyond awesome.

    Hmm, so go on a conquering spree but relinquish captured - and thus converted - cities when peace is brokered, win!

    A very minor thing: it is spelled "El Escorial" :)

    I saw a video and I wonder about this: Is the city is now captured if there is no unit inside the city or defeated like Civ 4? I saw some health there and I don't think another melee unit can wipe all those hp at once after first attack.
    It might not be final but I really wonder about it. :blush:

    It won't. You just link them together, and they move like a single unit.

    Thanks for yet another gif! :goodjob:

    I'd prefer they had pictured him without the armor though. He looks a bit similar to Barbarossa at first glance. A typical Renaissance attire (such as the one he's wearing under the armor) would be better for diversity's sake, methinks.

    While I am going to miss the extremely random but fun Spanish UA of Civ V, this version of Spain is perfect. The gameplay bonuses just scream Spain! Trade, religion, inquisition, exploration... perfect. I'm even thrilled that Spain appears to be red and yellow (sorry Persia)

    Since I want to explore the new religious victory Spain may be my first choice :)

    Wow! this is my favourite civ so far!

    Powerful and it seems a lot of fun to play! Specially in a continents map.

    A 'continent' doesn't have to be a landmass. One landmass can consist of multiple continents. Very confusing.

    Here's a screenshot with different continents (based on info from mouse-overs):

    I wonder if this could be a valid strategy for Spain: holy war on other people, capture/convert cities with conquistadors but return them at the end of the war to reduce warmonger penalty. After each war you would convert a bunch of cities of the civ to your religion, and you would go for religious victory...

    So, I take it's safe to say that his agenda is that he hates civs that follow other religions than his own? Because that's basically what Isabella already had in games past XD
