    Like it or not, a bit of money goes a long way in diplomacy. :)

    But it does sound like only part of the equation. Hopefully grievances and diplomatic favour are tied together in some way, i.e. having a ton of grievances has negative impact on your diplomatic favour.

    That looks distinctly like a Maori Pa, which is a fort with trenches, usually on a hill or small mountain.

    Then it is definitely a Pa (Maori fort). The other improvement is probably a Marae.

    Indeed, I regard this riddle as solved.

    Maybe similar to an Alcazar? Culture boost plus treated like a fort, I’m sure there would be one more benefit too.

    Maybe a +1 to certain districts? Or maybe a negative modifier towards enemies

    Pa were the original perfection of trench warfare, which may have inspired the Europeans in WW1 given how successful they were in defence.

    I think that is now going to be the Nuclear Power Plant.

    That was my first guess, but the steps looked like they were made of stone, so that's why I said Inca as well.
    Leave it up to someone from New Zealand to know for sure.

    Well, I mean...


    Note the squared-off sides. It's almost definitely a Cahokia mound, maybe Monk's Mound when you consider the (anachronistic) stone steps:

    Yes, I think it makes sense. Each Power Generation building or improvement will likely require a resource or specific location. Coal for the older looking power plant, Uranium for the Nuclear Plant, Geothermal fissure, Dam on a river for Hydro. The Solar Plant will probably need to be built on Desert tile or something like that and Windmills on the coast or hills.

    This one has been bugging me from the first time it was leaked. I think this is a Future Tech Wonder, instead of an improvement or district. It doesn't have the correct color highlights on the buildings to be a water based version of a neighborhood (green roofs) or a science district (more blue).

    Note the very end of the cinematic trailer, the people are gazing at a similar island with a dome in the center, albeit the buildings are much taller. I feel like they are related.

    To me, it looks very similar to the futuristic city shown at the end of the trailer.

    Some kind of futuristic sea-based Neighborhood district?

    I agree, future era neighborhood that can be built on water.

    I think those are probably the "seasteads" mentioned on the official site.

    I trust the art team to get this right before GS is released. The crew working on Civ 6's in game art has been top notch so far.

    Yeah, I guess. The part that is bugging me is that they have explicitly trimmed their housing related districts (Dam, Aqueduct and Neighborhood can all be seen in the new screenshots) with green roofed/accented buildings. And this doesn't have any. That's why I feel it has to be something more than just a district. Perhaps the Seastead is a Wonder?

    Why do I feel like the Rise and Fall screenshots revealed more new things than these ones?
