    Anyone had any of their units just drop dead while standing on a jungle square for ages? I just witnessed one of my knights just die on me because of desease, so the caption said! That was weird.

    It happens.

    Don't leave them in the jungle, they won't die like that. ;)

    Old wolves do not die gracefully. Jungles can be the doom of all.

    Not just jungle but marsh (swamp) lands as well.

    It has happened to me, too, after parking one unit on jungle for ages(it took many turns to happen).

    it says in the Civilopedia jungle contains disease, which can kill units after a time.

    You should not leave units on the three diseased tile types or they will die after a few turns. These are:
    1) Jungle
    2) Flood plains (safe after sanitation)
    3) Marsh (in C3C)

    Does it die quickly without warning or is there a slow decrease in hit/health points :confused:

    greg!

    where've ya been?

    i guess it will work... i was genuinely asking though.

    re the avatar:
    it's a picture of Emilio Aguinaldo who was the leader of the Filipino insurgent forces vs the americans in the philippines, 1899-1902. i'm doing my thesis on it the Philippine-American War. not many people know about this war either...

    Yes it will stop units dying. It is the fact that a unit is standing in a diseased tile that is the problem, not the specific type of terrain. If for example you edited grassland to cause disease then units would die on those tiles too.

    My Gallic Warrior died like that. :( Poor dude.

    But yeah, I learned my lesson. Malaria is a mean foe.

    Never happen, as with units dying in flood plains.

    My cities have often been hit, although.

    I think they have something similar to that in Civ4 perhaps.

    I believe your units only die if they are fortified in the tile...
