    Well, they really missed an opportunity to give any empire their associate governors ;)

    I hated their aesthetic initially, but I've gotten used to them, if still not ideal.

    As a gameplay mechanic it's been the opposite - I thought them promising at first, and hate them more and more as tedious micromanagement the more I play.

    Since all governors do have real names, I expect that a possible Ottoman unique governor would also have a real name rather then a generic one.

    I would find them more annoying for casual building style - you have to move Liang every time you want to build fish farms or city parks for example.

    Honestly I just usually ignore them from mid game onward.

    Hopefully Liang now unlocks the upgrades, and does not need to be in the city to build them. She buffs them now, afterall.

    On a side note, do people like the new game title screen that came with this expansion? I believe Civ5 got a similar one. I like it, it looks sharp, but it seems to take a little longer to come up, my only gripe. and sometimes I forget I never clicked on play only to check back minutes later to find out why the game isn't loading. It's nice not having to change the Direct X settings every damn time.

    All of Civ VI has the same exaggerated CivRev Brian Busatti cartoony style. There was no shortage of displeasure about the graphic style of Civ VI in general, but that hardly means they'll change anything. They can't really change the style of new additions now; it would look stupid to have one realistic governor amongst all the other cartoony ones.

    Where did you see that? As far as I have seen Aquaculture hasn't changed.

    I was very critical of the art style of Civ 6 when it was first announced, but it's grown on me. I like how pretty the map looks with all the little animations and vibrant colors.

    I'm guessing it might not get a name but be called the Grand Vizier for the Ottomans, who I am leaning towards it being.

    As for Sweden I randomly thought of an achievement today:
    Facing my Waterloo:
    As Sweden lose one of your military units escorting Napoleon while having a Great Work of Music from at least four different Great Musicians. (as a reference to ABBA)

    There are so many other day one bugs in features that people actually use... that I can't get particularly upset about this one.

    I agree, I hate the extra micro management they introduce.

    Just wish Firaxis could've found a different way of managing Loyalty, because essentially that's the main reason they're included.

    I agree. It’s definitely more cartoony than 5, but no more cartoony than 4 in my opinion. It is beautiful though, I would argue more beautiful than 5. Unless you’re in a dark age :( :( :(

    Funny I think the graphics are still better even if you're in a dark age and there aren't any polders around. :D

    I did find it at 43:48. I'll post a screenshot in the screenshots thread. You were correct. We apparently can no longer ignore the troops on the border message.

    The small touches of animation in Civ 6 shows the art team's good work. I particularly liked the aurora over the polar regions and the dust winds over the desert.

    My small issue is that the sun still rises in west and sets in the east.

    I need to stop thinking about GS or else the next 2 and a half months will crawl.

    With the weekly first look videos and livestream, you will never notice that we are getting closer and closer to release date.

    What I am worried about is how to manage my time on Valentines Day. :)
