    I still say that if he is Polynesian, then he probably wouldn't be on Easter Island. :p

    i second that

    plus you could give him anything else than +1 mov, how many time did you gave that bonus to some UU? with vikings, that's the second time you give that to some galley!! it's not unique at all!!

    if you want to go with a naval UU, give a promotion like the one giving some escape %...

    Great job on the Polynesians CivArmy. ^^ I am having a blast playing them on tiny island archipelagos. Just one question though. The flag for the units is all white? What do I do to fix that? Thanks again. :)

    hmm . . . a galley with +1 movement is ok, but the idea doesn't seem to do justice to the ancient seagoing pan-pacific polynesian peoples. Here is an idea you may like better, or you may hate completely:

    Outrigger Canoe
    require tech - fishing
    Strength 2
    Movement 1
    May carry 1 settler, worker, missionary
    May not enter oceans
    May explore rival territories

    In the end it winds up being a very primitive version of the caravel which you get right at the start. It's weak and it can't cross oceans, but it is the perfect thing for a race that spread across the vast tracts of oceania in the worlds prehistory. Eventually barbarian galleys would pretty much "obsolete" it, but early on it gives a decent advantage, an early ocean rush, and even on a pangea map building one would allow you to 100% circle the continent by sea.

    well, UU are replacement of Unit, not entirely new unit for a civ that others won't get....

    Why not? I think such a change is pretty unique, don't you think?

    Why not give them a better workboat as UU instead? Something like +1 food from fish,crabs,etc.

    This would reflect the tiny islands they live on.

    the problem for it is that it is much more complicated than a new UU, you have to do some python...
    (besides that, i think it's overpowered too)

    ok for that, a galley is too much map dependant so you can make it a little ubber...
