    there is a very annyoing bug: when you atack a city and you select multiple units, sometimes, it won't select the one with the best chances. if you have 20 shield bearers, you need to check each and every one to see which one has the top chance. not sure why...

    also, when you are attacked, it will keep choosing your best unit as the defender, even if the chances are low and you will lose a good unit instead of sacrifing 1-2-3 poor units and save the good one. happened many times, nothing you can do.

    would be nice to be able to build new buildings and units from enslaved troops, for example if you enslave a hoplit, to be able to build a building and built hoplits after that.

    to choose where to put the mercenaries, happened many times to pay for them and it put them at my border, attacking my own troops instead of the neighbour's.

    also the leper thing shouldnt kill your troops though, quite frustrating to atack a city, have some good troops gone because leper showed up after the atack and you cant move the injured troops. next turn they are gone..

    not sure who built the romans vs germanics tribes scenario but he deserves a couple od beers, best scenario ever..

    really? hm.. I only have this problem on different units in a stack, but perhaps it's the first strike chance that makes it difficult for CIV to calculate. but it's a CIV feature, I can't manage that.

    this is also a CIV feature, I can't handle. I am sorry ;(

    this sounds like FFH but not PAE :)
    other cultures different customs. a germanic tribe won't build a academy if they free a hoplite. it the other way round: the freed slave learns to live in the new culture.

    hm... ok, this is something I can change ;) I will disable neighbor border plots for that feature.

    ok, I will change the damage from 20 to 10 percent per turn. But it is a CIV bug that such units disappear without warning or log! sorry for that.

    you mean the Barbaricum scenarios? JohnDay is it ;) I'm sure, he's very happy about your feedback :)

    edit: oh, I just wanted to check the border plots for mercenaries and I already considered that: mercenaries don't appear within 2 plots from border.
    so, if the mercenaries change their mind, than your city seems to be more attractive to siege instead of the enemy's. more defending units prevent that.
