All, On Githhub some of the designers are kicking around ideas to simplify and uncomplicate the religious conversion system. This is very preliminary discussions, and certainly no commitments, but they asked to put some of the ideas on the forum just to get initial thoughts. I am putting the two models under discussion at the moment. Of course these models would require certain civs and beliefs to be adjusted....so saying "that will nerf belief X" is not helpful.....of course those would require adjustment if any of these models went through. Religious Conversion Updates At the core of these changes....cities no longer provide religious pressure to its each other per turn at base. Missionaries will be the primary way in which pressure is established....in addition to methods based on these models: Inquisitors work the same as they do today. Model 1: Cities that are connected by Trade Routes provide religious pressure to each other (as they do now). Spies also generate pressure with beliefs that utilize them. Model 2: Cities connected by Trade Routes get a big boost of pressure when the TR completes. All per turn sources are removed. The poll is online, so feel free to post your thoughts.
