    Ooooh! So that’s why the tiles in Maori first look had so many faith, even with the Marae.

    Seems very powerful if it prevents flooding in ALL your city center tiles.

    I'm curious whether its worthy to wait for an early flood which increases your growth/production yields of floodplains (which are now all grassland/plain/desert tiles next to a river, right?) or build the Great Bath rightaway.

    Seeking clarification on what "city tiles" really means, and if it only applies to one city or all.

    I would imagine one city, all cities would be incredibly powerful. I suppose this is like a Dam replacement in a way.

    I think the flood happens so you get faith still, I just think your improvements and districts are immune to damage. And I'm betting it's just the city where built

    That's how I interpret it, but it is not clear. We know it comes at Pottery, so it's like an early, overpowered Dam (that doesn't have a way to make Power lategame).

    See, when I first read it I assumed "city centers" but that is clearly wrong.

    It's so early I can't see myself building it. Seems kind of cool though. I just don't see it being available at King and above. Some of that is my playstyle in that I ignore early wonders. I like Temple of Atemis, but I almost never build it.

    Thats a little weird that it prevents flood damage. Was the ancient great bath doubling as some sort of overflow/retention pond?

    I also tend to ignore early wonders in order to focus on growing. I occasionally build ones that the AI neglected, later on when the production cost is proportionally lower.

    I have a lingering suspicion that it might be comparable to or insignificantly more expensive than actual dams. If so, then a round of applause to the dam district for joining the “districts you never build” club.

    Does it add faith every time there is a flood or just once? If it's every time that could be OP if you set the disaster rate to higher levels.

    Floods don't seem to affect every tile in a floodplain, so it probably adds it once to the tiles affected, including more tiles if they become affected by later floods.

    After-flood yields are temporary

    Are you sure? I think they are permanent actually, so building dams is a more strategic decision.

    There's only 1 Great Bath, and many more than 1 river in a game that you want to protect from flood.

    and this is relatively minor, but I'm guessing it can't be spy attacked.
