In my current game (marathon) I have at least two of my cities, which I built with my settlers, requesting to join another civ as if they were conquered cities. In one case a city I built on a small island is requesting to rejoin the Chinese, my vassal. In another case a city I built on former Roman land (neutral at the time because I razed everything to the ground) is requesting to rejoin the Romans, also my vassal. Another Issue in this Particular Game In the year 1995, out of nowhere, I get a first time greeting message from Darius who heretofore I've not seen at all nor can I spot where he is on the map. A colony the AI created? Save attached. If you need the city names in question I'll have to get back in game and write them down and post back here.
