    The whole point of this building it is to increase your GPT. It gives you bonus gold from trade routes and additional resources. But "additional resources"=GPT because you sell them. Time to do some maths, the answer is quite obvious;D

    Yes, I understand this. To clarify, I meant the "resource diversity" bonus for trade routes. I want to place the building in a city that already produces strong trade routes, so that I can add the additional incoming/outgoing trade route gold (another attribute of the building) to get even better trade routes.

    If I embargo a luxury via UN, can the AI create corporation based on that luxury?
    Do the AI get the monopoly bonus of an embargoed luxury?

    Embargoes end monopolies and all monopoly bonuses or abilities.

    Thanks Gazebo. Voting power is super useful.
    Another question, does taking (capturing) a city state effect the embassy vote bonus on that land? If the Embassy is mine, does the bonus vote gets removed?
    Last one, does taking city states effect the "Get votes based on number of CS in game"?

    If the CS is captured the vote goes away.

    Those totals are for CSs alive at game start.

    An easy one. What happes to the embassy if Venice or Austria "buy" that CS? Does it disappear? Venice/Austria would get the embassy yields but not more votes?

    Nothing happens with Austria? I didn't know that, interesting... But I was talking about the embassy as a tile improvement. What happens to it if Austria or Venice (maybe only Venice) "buy" a CS with one?

    Right. The vote goes away if Venice eats the CS. Austria doesn't eat CSs in VP.

    Ups, sorry about Austria. I admit I didn't take too much time reading the new UA.

    Also... Hm... I think we aren't understanding each other ^^u. I know you won't get the vote of your embassy if Venice "eats" "your" CS. But if I'm playing as Venice and I see a CS with an embassy from another player/AI, apart from leaving them without the vote (and with them unable to get it back even if they conquer the CS, as it is now one of my cities), do I also get the embassy that was already there as a tile improvement and its yields ( :c5culture:, :c5gold:, :c5science:...)? Or does the embassy just disappear when you "eat" the CS?

    Vote dies, tile improvement remains.

    Unlike in vanilla, in VP it's possible to liberate city-states that Venice has eaten. I would assume they get the vote back in that case.

    Is it normal how the barbarians always spam a single unit? Earlier on they LOVE horse archers, or war elephants. For some reason later all they build is zeppelins. Then its riflemen everywhere. Intended?

    Well, ISIS is not using horses or spears but guns, missiles even drones. It is intended, their tech level is average level of world.
