    And 4 normal improvements that we haven't seen or heard about yet (if we count Ski Resorts, Flood Barriers, Wind & Solar Farms, Railroads and Tunnels as "known"). I really wonder what those will be.

    Time to make updated predictions:
    Inca- UU- Huaracas Replaces Skirmirsher, UI Terrace Farm
    Ottomans: UU-Janissary Replaces Musketman, UD Karsi (Turkish for Bazaar) replaces Commercial Hub, Unique Governor Grand Vizier
    Mali: UU Sofa- Replaces Crossbowmen, UI Mud Masjid
    Sweden: UU Karoliner replaces Pike and Shot, Svenska Akademien (Swedish Academy) replaces Library? Alternatively a unique Research Lab could work as a unique Library would be more suited for a future Babylon or Assyria.
    Phoenicia: UU Trireme replacing Galley, UD Cothon probably replacing Harbor though slim possibility an early Canal?
    Canada: UU Mountie could replace new Curaisser, UB Ice Hockey Arena replaces Stadium.
    Eleanor: none

    I hope Sweden gets a Leather Cannon UU and not a melee unit.

    Corrected that for you. The pronounciation is something like "Czarshuh".

    They suprised us with Maori (not with Civ, but fact they start in Ocean) --- so i would say at least one more of remaining 6 Civs will have some crazy yet unseen thing about them. I would put my money either Canada or Mali

    I’d love it if the Inca could involve mountains somehow, even if all it is would be trade routes could go over mountains (“Great Inca Trail”). They did fine with hill perks in Civ5, but including mtns somehow would be next level.

    I hope you will be able to build the terrace farms on the side of the mountain, that along with adjacency bonuses from theater squares, industrial zones, and commercial hubs from them.

    That's honestly the thing I want to see more with the Incas, they could probably use whatever mechanic they plan to use for tunnels available for the Incas earlier, but instead of tunnels you build mountain roads (which could upgrade to tunnels with railroads later). assuming terraces still have to be built on hills next to mountains it could make for some nice mountain exploration to be able to use enlcosed valleys for massive cities.

    (of course one drawback is that invaders could make use of your incredible road infraestructure, like IRL)

    If Sweden doesn't get Karoliner as a UU I'll be very surprised.

    Is the leather cannon not distinct enough because everyone copied it within a few years? The Swedes revolutionized artillery warfare in the 30 years war (Torstensson for example). I think it would be a perfect fit and artillery UUs are scarce right now. Although it would probably be a field cannon.

    There's an argument for it, but I think Sweden without Karoliners would be akin to Ottomans without Janissaries.

    Hopefully Norway gets an overhaul because Knarr looks absolutely pitiful in comparison to Mana. Norway was on the weak side anyway.

    I expect the Civ 6 Ottomans to be without Janissaries. They were in Civ 5, and that's a strong indication they will not be in Civ 6.

    They already made a model for it, don't see why they wouldn't use it.

    Nahh, they get a sugar shack UI that can be placed in woods and produces a luxury: Maple Syrup.

    It would be cool but I just think that it isn't unique enough, as other nations used it quickly after. Alternatively a Karoliner could be a good Pike and Shot replacement since we don't have one of those currently and they used pikes as well. I'm going to put that instead.

    A leather cannon would be dumbest unit ever in Civilization, and that's saying something.

    Maybe Cannons require Iron now … except Swedish Cannons.
