    The patch notes say that they improved Civilopedia... But I guess it doesn't mean that "Cyrus the not so Great was just a bloodthirsty backstabbing warmonger" is going to be changed :crazyeye:

    Seriously. Someone at Firaxis has a serious vendetta against Cyrus. :( Or else takes Herodotus at face value. Despite contradictory claims. :p

    Looks like the AI has been beefed up a bit. Quill is getting stomped on Deity over and over.

    Gitarja's colors have also been changed (dark blue to turquoise). Or was that already the case before this patch?

    Nope

    Gitarja and Australia were the two known civs to have had a color pass during the development of the expansion pack.

    When they were playing as I think Netherlands we noticed new colors.

    Cyrus bragged that "A virgin carrying a bag of gold could walk from one end of his empire to the other unmolested"

    Today she'd be lucky to make it through Central Park without an escort from a platoon of Recon Marines. What price progress?

    Disappointed they didn't do a pre-load for the expansion...the 1.1 GB patch took quite some time to download. Any information on the file size for the expansion? I'm trying to figure out if I should just stay up until midnight to start the download and then go to bed since my download time is probably going to be measured in hours. Oh the pitfalls of buying a house far and away from civilization...:rolleyes:

    Your fellow European fanatics have the advantage in this situation - we can go to normal sleep from now until R&F unlocks ;)

    Yes. I'll go to sleep, wake up, have a breakfast, start downloading R&F from Steam, go to school and when I'll return, I can pick a Civ and play!

    Alexander the Great doesn't. That's one good thing about him. :p

    No, finally finished an Indonesia game yesterday. Still same colors. Will change with expansion though.

    I've just heard from my boss that I'll be having a 5-hour shift tomorrow instead of an 8-hour shift, so that means I have an opportunity to install and peek into the new expansion. However I chose to have this schedule instead:
    Tonight: wait for two minutes before the stroke of midnight to do something in this thread. Keep an eye on it. ;)
    Tomorrow: Probably listen to the soundtrack before work=>go to work=>get a quick sneak peek before going to bed early for the 2018 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony
    Friday: watch the ceremony=>prepare and go to work=>I get to actually and finally play the game

    I tend to schedule things that I like to do.

    Apparently they are going to have a "free test drive" weekend thing on Steam.
