    We‘ve seen a unique palace building for Brussels iirc in an early First Look or Live Stream.

    Looks like the backside of the Government House in Canberra.
    By the way I had a dream that last night that the Scottish palace just went to Armagh. Also they changed the color scheme and added a gold plate later on to make that leader Huyana Capac.

    Well if you take a look at their first look videos, you'll find out :p

    And I'd argue the Zulu would need a palace of their own, as well as Carthage and Ottomans/Byzantines, and any Polynesian civs if we end up seeing them.

    Every self-respecting leader lets his battleship flotilla hang out other empires' coasts for a couple of turn, correct.

    Everyone's getting their own palaces methinks. All Civs I mean.

    I think that's the long-term goal, yeah. Maybe for City States as well, because it makes no sense to have Brussels share its Palace with Scotland if the Dutch have their own Palace art. I mean compare this:



    with this:



    It's not even remotely close? The Scottish one actually looks closer in style to Amsterdam's town hall than the Brussellian one.

    If anything, the variety is exciting to look forward to though ^__^

    You know, someday I'd love to do a multiplayer game with no victory conditions or turn limit, just a group of like-minded players doing some casual play.

    There are many times I just pretend that Gilgamesh is Sargon of Akkad. It makes my life easier. Gandhi and Catherine having bilingual lines makes total sense. Cleopatra speaking Middle Egyptian is wrong, though she did speak a form of Egyptian when she had to. I kind of wish she spoke Greek and broke out the Egyptian when pissed off.

    I hope they choose Robert the Bruce over William Wallace. Nothing against William Wallace, but we need to combat Mel Gibson propaganda. I hope Robert the Bruce speaks Gaelic and Scots/Middle English. Scots is such a fun language for me (as a Native English speaker) to hear.

    I see your train of thought and appreciate there is an argument to be made for calling them the Majapahit. Personally, I have no qualms with their portrayal and don't feel they warrant the label Blob.

    The influence of old Java resonates strongly to this day in modern Indonesia and I don't mind them calling it the "Indonesia" civ because the same dominant cultures in the archipelago have kept its core, withstanding many labels and rulers (mysticism, Hindu-Buddhist kingdoms, Islamic sultanates, the Dutch, modern metropolises) while evolving at the same time.

    I liken it to a sturdy picture frame and within it an ever-changing painting: the frame is the unchanging core of Nusantara the archipelago. Within the frame is a painting that keeps changing, with new colors coming in every era and a new artist penning their name over the old one - whether they are Mr. VOC or Mrs. Majapahit, the frame remains the same.

    If one can accept this premise, then moving from design to the next step - marketing - and it becomes easy to cement the label "Indonesia"

    Really should be the other way around: people have a habit of slipping into whatever language they're most comfortable with when angry, and Egyptian would have been a foreign language for her.

    An Egyptian leader speaking Egyptian, then slipping into angry Greek? That would have been interesting to see.

    Gandhi speaks English in his attacked line, but Hindi when declaring war. He's a weirdo. :p
    Plus his real life mother tongue was actually Gujarati instead of Hindi.

    And also not really an orthodox Hindu, having a great admiration for Jains, Sikhs, and Zoroastrians, which probably ought to put him on Civ6's "non-religious" list. :p

    His ability is literally "gets a bonus when he meets someone who has a different religion than him".

    I think that part of his personality is fairly well covered.
