    This is good so hopefully means the AI will not turn over their entire empire and treasury to you upon capturing 1 city?

    Bad news is I don't see any notes about improving combat or tactical AI :(

      • Poland’s “Golden Liberty” unique ability allows them to gain territory when they build a Fort or Encampment, even allowing them to steal territory from other civs! They also convert a Military Policy slot into a Wildcard slot, giving them extra flexibility in culture.
      • Jadwiga allows you to spread your religion to the nearby city when you gain another civ’s territory with Golden Liberty. Her relics provide bonus Faith, Culture, and Gold.
      • The famous Winged Hussar is strong on the attack and can push back defending units.

    They just NEED to keep Civ games to the current expectations. Man, why is this happening? Why the hell are they detached from the current expectations, and they still release a broken game? The AI is the most important thing in a Civ Game. Refer to CP.

    I think this patch also fixes the Localized text bug, even though they haven't specifically mentioned it.

    Still no population growth notification when our cities grow, but overall these are some nice improvements.

    I'm happy to see a patch. I think the tweaks to wonder and tech costs are welcome--they might not go far enough but they're certainly a step in the right direction. Nerfing factories was probably smart although I don't think I like the way they did it. Stacking lots of bonuses was fun and I'm sad they couldn't find a way to keep that in and have it be balanced.

    I also like making unique districts count against the district limit--that puts them in line with other uniques, power-wise. It also makes Germany's unique ability more special (while simultaneously giving the Hansa a much-needed nerf). But...

    --I see nothing to nerf internal trade route spam, which is probably a bigger issue than factory spam. Nor is there anything to make managing 20+ trade routes easier.
    --Almost nothing about the combat AI, which is the most glaring issue in the game at present.

    So it looks like a nice patch, and an encouraging sign, but I don't think it will fix the core problems this game has.

    • Cities can no longer receive yields from more than one regional building per type; they take the highest (ex. production from multiple Factories)
    Wow, knocked my capital down from 180 hammers to around 110.

    Guess I was wrong, it's not just a multiplayer patch for Mac! Awesome! Those balance changes will change strategy a lot now that regional effects don't stack... I'm sure there will be more balance changes later once they've analysed how gameplay and AI work with that.

    ugh. Granted, they had to do SOMETHING, but my gut reaction is that they over-reacted here. Now the industrial revolution will be completely meaningless...just build 1-2 factories for your entire empire and get +3 production in each city. That's pretty bad...

    and what does "take the highest" even mean? Don't those buildings always have the same output?

    So almost everything still costs way too many cogs, but now it's even harder to get them in the lategame?
