    Incidentally, my post got moved in here by a moderator, but it has nothing to do with any Winter update. It was about a hotfix that Firaxis could apply tomorrow if they were so minded, and would take five minutes of their time. In other words, a change very easily applied, maybe by just commenting out one line of code, and needing no testing. Getting rid of AI demands is such a change. Changing the Terra script is not - it would requires testing.

    It would be interesting if Great Philosophers focused on culture/civics and gain GPPs through the Government Plaza thinking more from a ethics/political philosophy viewpoint since some philosophers are already Great Prophets and science is taken by Great Scientists.
    Though the more I think about it would it be a good thing to recruit Great Philosophers on account of your Government Plaza. :undecide:

    Any civ can be used well, it is a question of why you are saying they are trash. I personally find them awesome to play with and their domreys got better with the update. As to how historical they are, I am no Khmer expert.

    Will they finally fix naval combat in the winter update? If not, will they release the source code so that someone can fix it?

    They just announced Civ 6 for PS4 and XBOne along with the expansions for them plus Switch on November 22nd.

    So if they do have another expansion in the works, it would probably not be announced officially until after that.

    I agree with basically all of this except I think Walls are fine as they are now (previously they were not a huge deal, but now I think they have been appropriately buffed), and I feel like while I like the colonial city policy idea, it can be incredibly abusable since diplo favor is already supposed to be scarce. Lets say you manage 20 colonial cities on a Terra map = 20 diplo favor which is quite a bit - sure the investment is required, but the benefits outweigh that investment cost IMO. That also can benefit warmongers, so maybe for colonial cities you found you get the diplo points? Might be a good compromise.

    Otherwise I really like your ideas.

    EDIT: Sewers should give an amenity. Clean water and modern toiletry really should be worth an amenity.

    It would be very odd for them to release the base game + both expansions on console and then immediately afterwards say 'oh yeah, there's another expansion coming to PC'... right?

    ETA: unless of course they think they can release Expansion 3 at the same time on all platforms?

    Not necessarily - get them to buy what's out, then get them to pay more for the next expansion. While some people wait to buy games until everything is out, others get excited by a game still being in development - still seems fresh, not old and abandoned.

    Housing vs amenities is an area I personally think is a little wrong
    To me jobs bring housing while things like sewers bring happiness.
    Way too late to change such a key premise and it ain’t been that way in the past either, just my own little mad fantasy.

    Fair points. Really, the Sewer should be so much more valuable than it is. Working Sewage systems were a BIG deal and in game right now it's "meh...2 housing". When I can already get so much housing from other sources, and additionally they buffed neighborhood buildings, they really do need to look at the Sewer again since almost everything else outclasses its value. As of now, i only build sewers a) when tiles are limited, b) when i have a ridiculously large city that absolutely needs it (very rare) or c) when I just have nothing else to build. Not sure many people would feel +2 housing alone is worth the 200 production and 2 gold maintenance the Sewer costs.

    No I'm pretty sure that's exactly what they did last year - released it on the switch the week before Thanksgiving and announced Gathering Storm like right after.

    How about a sewer brings both housing and an amenity?

    Well the 22nd of Nov is the Friday before Thanksgiving.:mischief:

    The week after Thanksgiving is December. They might do it immediately before.

    Pretty sure they announced Gathering Storm back in October of 2018. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong though.

    Pretty sure it was late November, as the announce trailer(see below) for it came out right after the tornado stream thing and its dated November 20th.

    Fair enough. I thought my memory might have been a bit janky ;).

    Hmm. Okay. That's relatively encouraging, then...

    I imagine a possible expansion and the xbox version will be two different development teams

    Yes. In the past, all ports were created by Aspyr rather than in house at Firaxis.

    Making RR more worthwhile would be nice. I build them, but they aren't as good as they were in Civ 5.

    Move urban defenses back another 1/2-1 era. Where it is currently(and at release), it makes the tier 3 walls not worth building. UD is just right around the corner. By moving it back, you make tier 3 walls look more appealing when dealing with Infantry or tanks.

    and i would like to see colonizing other continents(across large bodies of water) be more viable.


    I wouldnt mind the resource requirements for troops removed, and instead make strategic resources buff units or other parts of your empire. I feel like late game strategic resources just aren't common enough to make even a decent size army. It is made worse by the upkeep that earlier parts of the game dont have.
