    I think that this behaviour was introduced in a recent version to avoid situations where you could conquer your way to a religion, then with your saved faith enhance your religion using a great prophet far faster than otherwise possible. If you have anything you can use your faith on like buildings from religions, you should dump it before you conquer a holy city I guess.

    This is intended. Because you never founded a religion, your Great Prophets are incredibly cheap, leading to early enhanced religions.

    The currently correct thing to do in this situation is spend your faith on buildings/missionaries/inquisitors/great people before conquering the Holy City.

    This maybe true earlier in the game but capturing a holy city of an already enhanced & reformed religion in the Renaissance era to lose 7~8K of faith makes no sense especially if it's the same religion your cities are following.

    You're benefitting from the first two great Prophets that the civ you conquered spent to create and enhance the religion, and then you want to immediately gain another two Great Prophets from your current stockpile of faith, which would normally be spent to found/enhance your religion but now can be used for something else. Just by conquering your first Holy City you would gain two free great Prophets.

    People have been asking for the current stockpile to be reduced by the faith it would cost to found a religion, but this never happened. In my opinion, conquering a holy city should increase the cost of your next great prophet by the number of great prophets the religion already produced.

    I think if you already control a holy city, this effect should stop occurring.

    I really wish there was some kind of warning indicator, anywhere, just anywhere at all of what the majority religion is. I've had turns after turns late game where i mistakenly change majority and lose thousands of faith to golden age points when i don't want to at that point. I don't mind the idea of faith turning into golden age points, in fact i did utilize it to get golden ages going, but the fact that there is no warning at all makes it not fun to try to play with. If there was any liked timed delay of a couple turns or something it would be nice.

    Is this actually happening when your majority religion changes, or just when you conquer your first holy city?

    I agree that it would be nice to pop up a warning for when you are about to conquer your first holy city, if it's possible.

    I'm talking about when i spread a religion to one of my cities. i know beforehand to spend my faith before capturing my first holy city when i dont have a religion, but a warning for that to would also be nice
