Open Borders, Split in Two: Military and Civilian Hello Everyone, Has anyone else noticed the lack of realism when it comes to Open Borders? I don't know if it has ever been common for all countries to generally allow military passage through their lands by neighboring armies. Yet that is how it is in CIV4. Open borders is kind of the general agreement that most all civilizations share and it's good to have to build trust with the AI. The lack of realism bothers me, but furthermore the lack of strategic thinking this feature could provide also bothers me. I propose a split in the open borders feature to allow two different kinds of open borders agreements. 1. Open Borders: Civilian (Workers, Settlers, Missionaries, Scouts, etc.) 2. Open Borders: Military (Soldiers in general) A third option also comes to mind. 3. Open Borders: Naval (All ships allowed to sail in your cultural coasts) This third option could be merged with the other two. 1. Civilian, would allow non combat vessels like work boats to pass through, and 2. Military would allow all military vessels to sail through. I think making Open Borders more versatile would make the game more interesting and open up some new strategic plans. What do you guys think?
