Is it possible to manipulate where you and the AI start off? I'd like to play a game on an earth map with two civs on their respective continents as teams, e.g. Team Europe (England + Greece) vs. Team America (Iroquois + Inca) vs. ..., but all civs appear randomly on the earth.
Sorry if it has already been answered, this is my first post
I thought the City State quest for building a road between there city and your capital was fixed in a recent patch. Is this not the case, or is just my game still broken?
And same with the Machu Picchu wonder - I was recently out gunned for this wonder by a few turns by a rival civ. I was so mad, I DOW on him, and eventually took over every one of his cities... and I cannot find the Machu Picchu wonder. I checked through logs etc, and this Civ was never at war with anyone else, and there is nothing to suggest he lost any other cities besides to me. Is this STILL broken?!
You can check the diplomacy overview, which at least shows which civs control which wonders, to make sure no one else captured it somehow.
This seems like a really silly question and I am sure it has been answered somewhere else, but how do you run a mod? I downloaded and installed an appearance changing mod from inside the game just to see how it looks. Now what do I do? I tried clicking "mods" from the starting menu and then clicking "single player" and starting a game but it didn't seem to have made any changes.
Ok further follow up question: is it true that playing a game with a mod running will somehow prevent you from getting Steam achievements?
Is there a guide I can read about social policies? These are very different from civics and look very complicated. Basically I'm clueless on where to start with all the social policy options available in the game. Can you only pick just one tree path? How do you know which one to pick? Ugh, I need a guide.
In Civ IV, there was maintanance and that cost your empire much econimically as it grew past the optimal number and distance of cities. What has replaced that for Civ V, and how would you grow huge massively large empires with cities all over the world? What is the rating in your empire to keep a look out for?
