    I wonder if it just wouldn't give you one of those at all, and instead take the second cheapest building in some other district to give you...but I just hope the devs don't overlook this interaction.

    Or a situation where you get a barracks in your Encampments playing as Mongolia. :mischief:

    I want to remind you that this is Civilization "Fanatics" Center. People here are not casuals who play on settler or chieftain most of the time.

    I don’t know, but effectively it is one wonder that is providing tourism before completion :lol:
    (Doubles when you have Japan in-game)

    Seriously SF is an example of a wonder on a city that has switched production to many other things and only throws a few hammers to the wonder every now and then. But, alas, this (taking some centuries to finally complete) seems to have been the case with several other wonders and wonder-type buildings too.

    The problem is, unless you're willing to build walls (and their upgrades) and water mills in your cities, you're not going to be able to get expensive late game buildings with this wonder.

    Building ancient walls + water mill (160 hammers, 120 if limes is used), and then using this wonder to instantly get a bunch of universities or museums could be a really interesting play though. Just make sure not to tech castles before the wonder is finished. I generally build a monument and granary anyways so I don't view those as extra cost.

    - Portugal looks like a fun civ
    - love the new wonders especially the Etemenanki (the other Babylonian wonder is probably actually Assyrian)
    - I can see some fun gameplay with the new map type building the Etemenanki and getting the marsh pantheon

    - zombie mode : não obrigado

    Will zombies eat barbarians? Or they will cooperate? So many questions...

    That’s irrelevant. You can play on settler and still enjoy a certain genre. I like history programs on TV too and I dont need to be a history professor for that to work. I’d be annoyed if a zombie popped up in a history programme. I like realism - AI helps with that, zombies work against that. Nothing to do with this website or difficulty.

    Just letting my voice heard here. Portugal yes, all the rest - disappointing to say the least. After Corporations and the (free) barbaric mode I was hoping fxs would redeem themselves with a grande finale for this pack, possibly something related to colonial play and in theme with Portugal.
    This return to the lame fantasy stuff they started this pack with really left a bad taste again. All in all I hope these gimmicky game modes go back into the trash bin for the future.

    Padrão were individual pillars with a cross, that was used like milestones in a project, pouring out the path to India, along of Africa, Portugal walked through near 300 km by year, edifying this Padrões along the coast in interesting places, with resources, food, fresh water, local of trade or just for the sake of position. Padrão was in most cases edified by Explorers in a Caravela Latina, and less with Nau. Nau a bigger ship could build Feitoria instead.

    Yeap, Antwerp Cathedral is great. It's around 100 meters high what makes it even more stunning. You have other two possible World Wonders in Antwerp. Central Railway Station and MaaS. ;)

    Pretty excited about this! Zombies mode looks better than I anticipated and Portugal seems cool.

    My one gripe with Portugal is what it means for Spain.

    Byzantium showed up and made Spain irrelevant at its religious-conquering niche, and now we have Portugal to beat them at their cross-continental trade.

    Poor Spain...

    Just thought I'd answer this one...

    Unless they've integrated a new non-playable faction (there are currently three: City-States, Barbarians and Free Cities) - which, well, they haven't - then Zombies are Barbarians.

    At least no one can take away their inquisition niche. :mischief:
    Oh and having fleets and armadas earlier.

    Zombie units have the same color scheme as barbarians. The question is will they attack other barbarians?
    From the wording the developers use they attack the closest non zombie units so they should.

    I think @thecrazyscot is right. In the video you can see somewhere it says “Barbarian Zombie” as well. I don’t expect zombies to attack regular barbarians.

    I got a thought based on your knowledge. What if the portuguese UI is a Trading post replacement (Feitoria) and the ships are able to construct them in foreign cities with charges, and they increase trade route limit for every unique nation.
    Kinda like Genghis creating them instantly.

    That would explain the speculations guys here detected in the footage.

    Spain seemed pretty high up everyone's lists for a rework come april. I expect they are high on Firaxis' too...

    That sounds awesome- find a new Civ with your faster than usual caravel, use the charge in their territory, and get a trading post/trader you can build and send there.

    Seems like a very fun mechanic
