I had always had a feeling AcH is not working properly. I built it and the times for settlers stayed the same! So I ran a test today. Also, on these forums are posts about the issue spread out (https://forums.civfanatics.com/thre...ticed-on-playing.628086/page-22#post-15033184 https://forums.civfanatics.com/thre...scussion-thread.624894/page-260#post-15031905). On T93 I either chose Colonization policy or not. On T94 I let or not let Hobart build the Ancestral Hall. The result is, that while the wording is the same, Colonization policy gives +50% production towards settlers in all cities while AcH only in Hobart, the city it is built in. There is no effect of AcH on other cities, be it capital Canberra or another city XIAN. Here excerpts from xml files: <Row> <ModifierId>COLONIZATION_SETTLERPRODUCTION</ModifierId> <Name>Amount</Name> <Value>50</Value> </Row> <Row> <ModifierId>GOV_SETTLER_COST_REDUCTION</ModifierId> <Name>Amount</Name> <Value>50</Value> </Row> The name GOV_SETTLER_COST_REDUCTION is misleading, the cost of settler stays the same, production increases, just like with Colonization policy. I find mindboggling, why the hell do both have the same descriptions: <Row Tag="LOC_POLICY_COLONIZATION_DESCRIPTION"> <Text>+50% [ICON_Production] Production toward Settlers.</Text> </Row> <Row Tag="LOC_BUILDING_GOV_WIDE_DESCRIPTION"> <Text>50% increased [ICON_Production] Production toward Settlers.[NEWLINE]New cities receive a free Builder.[NEWLINE]Awards +1 [Icon_Governor] Governor Title.</Text> </Row> The text is misleading. It should be reworded to "in this city" for clarity, dont you agree? All other government buildings have global effects (GW slots buildings excluded), why not this one? I certainly played myself due to this many times already.
