    It has something to do with Terrain as well, so maybe it has to do with Floodplains, Rainforests, and Marshes.

    The new district looks quite disappointing to me. :(

    Isn't the singular 'they' the most elegant linguistic device ever?

    Either that, or the monopoly/corporation/whatever

    Does the capital name of Thăng Long point to or away from anyone? My expert Wikipedia research indicates that the name was given to the city in the 11th century, so that would make Lady Trieu somewhat unlikely, but to be honest I know embarassingly little about Vietnam *(and Asia overall) history, so I'm curious what you think.

    It's basically a godsend for Bull Moose Teddy.

    Very interesting. The preserve looks like it will mesh with my "minimal improvements" playstyle. The new Mode is what I've always wanted, using resources and economics to their full potential. I can't wait to see the First Looks for Kubai and Vietnam.

    Still waiting for leader and Civ features via the First Look, but I'm digging Vietnam's capitol building and symbol. Didn't realize the significance of turtles in Vietnamese culture - looks like I have an exciting folklore and myth rabbit hole to check out :D

    Preserve seems like a really odd choice for a new district. We already have National Parks to basically do the same thing.

    I think it will be a very fun district, no doubt. I really like the new Teddy and playing with appeal and boosting it for yields is a lot of fun - it just doesn't seem like something the game really needs?

    It looks like something you'll want to carefully situate next to as many potential national park tiles as possible.

    I think it's making use of an underutilized mechanic (appeal) that people seem to like.

    I wonder if national parks will be able to include a preserve district... kind of seems like they should be able to but maybe that would be OP?


    Mapuche as well.

    It is something to raise appeals... something that was rather difficult to do unless you had UI that did it or mangaed to build Effel Tower.

    Greenish headgear, no facial hair, round face. It looks like a female leader:

    I hope they boost tourism, not just indirectly via appeal. From the video it looks like it can be built on forest. I wonder if you can build national parks on top of them?

    O/w it will defeat the objective cos parks are hard enough to build cos of the multitude of contraints.

    It overlaps a bit with the City Park improvement though, doesn't it? Liang might be a little devalued from it.
