    Unless Leoreth removed them, there's also Tactical Nukes, which can be moved and have a limited range like Guided Missiles.

    Then Knoedel can only shake his head in disappointment and confusion over Leoreth's actions.

    Just wondering if it would not be better to simple remove the ability to deny your cities to flip to a new born civilization (and be forced to let it go). That would make the game way more difficult as humans can easily outplay AI, since I normally refuse to let a city go and manage to destroy a new civ straight away.

    Speaking of refusing flips..
    In a recent game of Byzantium, I refused the flip to the Ottomans, and they kept spawning new Janissaries and Knights to make sure that I could not wipe them out on the first turn.
    I only succeeded in killing them by WB'ing 50 knights and spamming right-clicks on their stack before the unit spawn triggered.
    Is this WID?
    If so, is this feature implemented for all civs? Or only the Ottomans?

    That's a feature of Rise And Fall, yes I want to change it.

    Maybe this belongs in the "Completely Dumb Ideas"-thread, but is it possible in theory to have dynamic UPs based on what the capital of a civ is? I was thinking that it could be a fun twist for the Vikings if that is the case, with the UPs being something along the lines of these:
    Oslo: Longboats can cross capes maybe? Something colonization/exploration focused, enabling finding and settling Iceland/Greenland/Vinland in a "special way" of a kind.
    Roskilde/Copenhagen: The Sound Due similar to their UP in RFC Europe
    Stockholm: Bonus to gunpowder units - perhaps just the earliest ones - and bombards.

    Could Greek leaderhead change from Pericles to Alexander be triggered either by earliest year Greek conquerors can spawn or spawn event itself, instead of empire size triggering the change? It's a bit weird that Alexander's conquests start by Pericles declaring war.

    Or add Philip the second, who consolidated greece, and wanted to conquer persia (but was murdered)

    A notification for informing the player that their civ's stability map has changed would be a dandy addition, especially for new DoC players I would imagine.

    Is there a code to prevent Holy Cities spawning in Capital cities?
    I remember in previous versions, when you found Protestantism as HRE/France/England,
    it would always spawn in Frankfurt/Paris/London.
    Nowadays it seems to me as if they would never spawn in those cities, but rather Hamburg/Bordeaux/Edinburgh.

    The code doesn't prevent the capital from becoming the holy city, but the capital does have a penalty making it less likely to become the holy city.

    That is used to always spawn in the capital was because of a bug.

    Isn't there an exception for Protestantism?

    *checks the code to be sure*

    Nope, the capital isn't favoured for Protestantism, like all religions*. However for Protestantism, all cities in the same region as your capital do get a bonus. This includes your capital, but as the penalty of being the capital still applies other cities are still better favoured. Furthermore all cities outside Europe have a penalty for becoming the Protestand holy city.

    *Some particular cities do have a bonus for becoming the holy city of a certain religion. (For example Parsa has a bonus for becoming the Zoroastrian holy city.) Some of these cities, like Parsa, are often capitals, which make it appear that the bonus is connected to the capital status. But it is not, it is tied to the city (location).

    Similarly how you can persuade or bribe other civilizations to declare war against another civilization, would it be possible to make an option to ask other civilizations to focus their espionage efforts towards a common enemy?

    Speaking of bribes, has anyone ever succeeded in altering another nation's choice with bribe/espionage in a World Congress?
    It has always led to a "blunder" in my attempts, regardless of the cost(low/med/high).

    There was a recent fix to a bug where the outcome would always be displayed as a failure, even when it succeeded.

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the dumb ideas thread.

    When Climate Change is overhauled, I suggest the addition of two new victory types:

    Humanitarian Victory: Have the greatest impact on maintaining global temperatures after their rate of increase have been unchanged for 20 turns
    Economic Victory: Have the highest gold per turn when the world becomes a greenhouse earth (aka the ice age ends) (aka increase of 5 degrees c).

    Now one could argue that because a runaway greenhouse effect is unlikely to be caused by humans and civilization would thus continue regardless of how bad the crisis gets, climate change should not have a "point of no return" gameplay wise, but I'd argue that the changes of the various comparatively smaller points of crisis would cause are great enough in their calamity to warrant a victory for preventing and even for being the most powerful nation at their outset. ..and the Economic victory cuz Civ is no stranger to awarding Victories for doing horrible things that ensure significant global infamy and influence like the Conquest Victory.

    Wikipedia says otherwise
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runaway_greenhouse_effect#Earth
    "Within current models of the runaway greenhouse effect, carbon dioxide (especially anthropogenic carbon dioxide) does not seem capable of providing the necessary insulation for Earth to reach the Simpson–Nakajima limit."

    EDIT: Also, what does "I wouldn't be so sure" even mean when responding to someone saying "while one could argue that X is unlikely, I disagree that it matters for the point of our discussion"?

    EDIT2: Could you please include the "one could argue", and "append [...], but" to your quote just so it's clear I'm only addressing a possible argument and am neither stating it is fact nor that I believe it?
