    Example : I play as Abraham Lincoln, and Lincoln's favourite civic is emancipation. But, I try to apply specialist economy because of his philosophical trait. must I change my civic to emancipation(lincoln's favoutite), when caste system worth for SE?


    So the question is, must we change the civic to the leader's favourite? Is there something that affect if we make the civic as the leader's fav civic?

    Sorry if this is such a stupid question, this question is just because I'm curious about this game. :s

    By the way anyone knows about cottage economy strat? Or thread that discuss about it? Thanks

    No. The only reason for the favored civic thingy is so you can make political choices regarding OTHER leader's favored civics.

    So, Lincoln's favorite civic is irrelevant unless you are playing AGAINST Lincoln.

    Mmm...ja I see.. So the favourite civic is just to know more about another leader's behaviour. Ok thanks for the answer (y).

    If you run another leader's favorite civic, you get a diplomacy bonus ("You have wisely chosen your Civics."). This can be one way to court a leader for Diplomatic victories or just to keep another from declaring war.

    So say, for example, you're on a map with Lincoln and Wang Kon (the only other leader with a Labor civic as his favorite). Depending on whom you want to court, you'll have to run either Emancipation or Caste System. You won't get a penalty from Lincoln if you run Caste System, but you'll get a diplomatic bonus to Wang Kon and lose the one you might've had for Lincoln. If, later on, you start running Emancipation, you'll lose the bonus from Wang Kon (but, again, no other penalty) and get the bonus with Lincoln.

    Does that help?

    CE:Spam out cottages on every tile you can, plus a GP farm and some production cities.

    CE/SE are generally bogus terms:You'll usually have a farmed GP farm if spamming cottages, and your cap will usually be cottaged in a SE for the Bureaucracy boost.

    Note that the AI leader has to run his/her favourite civic aswell to get the bonus. So when you are in emancipation but Lincoln is in slavery you wont get any diplomatic bonus...
