    I wish so, so much that Civ V would be like this. Alas, I think that as long as Civ V is on its current state, treads like these will become much more common, I fear.

    Thing that I would love to see:

    - Strategic and civilician's treatries

    - Proper implementation of nomadism

    - Different heights!

    Not too sold onto:

    - Fear VS trust / discipline / vs social policy system. Perhaps way too bidimensional, I am not too much of a fan of that approach to game design *cough Fable cough *

    -Non unique units. I really like to obtain vastly different gamestyles from one civ to another one, so each game feels diferent to another

    You said "...assassinate great people..."

    Well then, I hope Justin Bieber is one of the "Great Entertainers" so that we'll have a common target.

    Dumb question... it says published in 2013... that year hasn't happened yet. Is it a joke saying you're from the future or... it will be published in 2013?

    What would be more interesting?

    Civilization 6: Colonization? Before Civilization 6? Or Civilization 6: Children of the Apocalypse?

    Yay! Siam still there, albeit, as a DLC. :lol:
    Anyway, Don't really like your approach with certain things, the scrapping of 1UPT (Instead of improving it, and also becuase I LOVE ranged units!), the handling of UUs, UBs, and UAs*, (They provide each civilization some uniqueness, a more distinct identity). The Doctrine System also sounds a bit two dimensional. (I'd rather see a return of civics)

    I like your idea for the interface with heroic epic (Maybe a flash of light while the interface changes, accompanied with a splash screen), the handling of research agreements, and the new discipline yield (although i'd rather have it called order, discipline just doesn't sound right for the population in general).



    * I see why you don't like it in your sig, but it still make each civ unique rather than just being reskins, I don't really see how it's racist. Also noticed a mistake in your sig,
    I assume that that not is not supposed to be there.

    This is amazing! Nice work i Hope 2K and Firaxis make Civ 6 like this if they did it would be AWESOME! You should seriously consider sending them these reviews to give them some creative ideas.

    I assume the Vanilla 15 would be 1. Spain 2. Russia (led by Catherine, again) 3. Egypt 4. England
    5. America 6. Arabia 7. Aztec 8. China 9. France 10. Germany 11. Greece 12. India (please no Gandhi) 13. Japan 14. Rome 15. Iroquois (or something else)

    then the Expansions and DLCS would add
    Korea
    Bengal (curious choice, who would lead?)
    Indonesia (based on Majapahit, I assume)
    Siam (no Khmer, then)

    Ottomans
    Carthage
    Persia
    Mongolia
    Songhai

    Brazil
    Congo (led by Nzinga Mbande)

    Portugal
    Brazil (????)
    Netherlands

    Harappans (you have to make up a leader)
    Ethiopia (poor Ethiopia, all forgotten...)

    Where would Babylon, Inca, Denmark/Scandinavia, Polynesia (not sure what you think of this civ)
    Byzantine, Celts, Mayan, Zulu belong?
