    Might be best posted on the Switch board, they'll be using thing version so you're more likely to get an appropriate response.

    Playing a game as Mvemba's Kongo - Gathering Storm on Switch. Found myself on a small continent I was sharing with Poland. I plan for an early war to have the place all to myself, with the exception of a couple of city-states. I was already Suzerain of Valletta, so when I declared war on Jadwiga, I decided to levy the city-state's military. A few turns later, after a victorious war, I'm concentrating on trying to get out a bunch of settlers and start building up some culture building. Before the war, I had a lucky iron mine location, so I managed to upgrade two warriors to Ngao Mbebas. Now that I'm sending out some settlers, I want to take these guys off of alert and have them do some escort duty. But I notice one of them is missing. Weird. That's when I notice: Valletta has a Ngao Mbeba warrior! Somehow, I lost my second Ngao to the city-state that I'm the Suzerain of! I can't find anything about this. Is this part of the game? I'm totally baffled as to how or why this happened. Any insight is much appreciated and thanks in advance!

    Yes, it is part of the game. Levied units go back to their city states after 30 turns or even sooner if you lose suzerainty over that CS. You can upgrade them, but when their contract is up, they go home. Levying is not buying, it is hiring for a finite period of time.

    Yeah, I totally get that part, but that's not my question. The Ngao Mbeba is a UNIQUE unit, so by definition, only I can build one. My question is how did Valletta get MY Ngao Mbeba? Huh. I wonder if I accidentally upgraded a Valletta warrior? Damn, I'll bet that's it! What do you think?

    Yes, you upgraded levied Valetta's warrior into your UU, and then it returned to Valetta.

    How does Vicky's Sun Never Sets agenda work? She's expanded to my continent, but I'm still showing a -5 dislike because she wants to expand to a continent I occupy. Does this only update at certain times?

    Edit: OK it isn't an issue with Vicky, but with the way the game was handling continents. While the map said that all my cities and some of Vicky's were on continent Mu, the moment I built my first Aerodrome I got the Rapid Deployment inspiration for building on a new continent.

    at work - wishing I were civving
    I am playing as Lautaro, with all expansions and DLC, using the latest version of the CQUI mod and no other mods. At the beginning of a turn in the early Industrial era I think, I suddenly received a Great Engineer and a Great Artist. They just appeared in my cities -- I did not get the Great Person screen that lets you accept or decline Great People. Nor was I anywhere near receiving either of these Great People. (I am not even accumulating any GA points. I was accumulating GE points, but was quite a long way away from receiving one.) Anyone know what's going on? Is this some Lautaro/Mapuche ability I missed? A crazy Suzerainty bonus I'm not aware of?

    So I was playing against Poundmaker, and for the first time (just got R&F and GS) that each city has a white dot next to its name. There were two exceptions:
    1. One had a symbol that was a star inside a circle, like the one that represents the capital.
    2. Another had a filled-in star, similar to the star Americans used to have on their aircraft.
    I looked on the target list for a spy, and it identified 1 as the capital, so invaded 2 (I didn't want to end the game and he was the last Civ standing other than myself), turns out 2 was actually his capital.

    Anyone know what happened? What was the other star symbol, and why did the one seeming to point out the capital end up not being the capital?

    in previous versions of civ you saw all of the ai's movements that any of your units could see and the camera went automatically to the action. Is there a way to get that in civ6?

    thanks

    His original capital got conquered, another city was made capital, he got his original capital back somehow, but his current capital remained the second city.

    Looks like you won an international competition. World Fair, possibly.

    Ohhhh -- I didn't think of that. I looked into the competitions, and it turns out it's the Nobel Peace Prize -- Silver tier prize is a GA and GE, just what I got. Thanks!

    Can the CO2 multiplier for deforestation return to a lower value if you put forests everywhere?

    Look for the replay button/icon after the vid ends (before you close the screen)

    EDIT: It’s in the upper left corner

    Tried to search if someone else had this bug around, but didnt find anything.

    In my ongoing game as Bolivar, I used Rafael Urdaneta General to get my nearby troops refreshed. It used the General and he gave back my movement points, but I cannot still move them or attack. Is this known thing? Can I remedy this, really sucks?

    I'm not sure of the CG's name, but something like that DID happen to me in my game too. I retired him, but my units couldn't move after that. It really felt like when you move a unit in another unit's zone of control.

    Can AI civs cut through my territory without Open Borders or being at war, while I have to have either a DOW or OB to enter theirs?
