Not for me. The AI has been declaring on me left and right. I was at war with 4 civs at one point. But I suspect if you are peaceful, the AI will be as well. That's usually how it was for me pre patch. But my current game I conquered 3 city states and 1 Persian city. Folks aren't too happy with me. But I suspect they will settle down by the modern era, they usually do. I'm looking forward to seeing the end game though. As for the catapults mentioned above I have seen them pre-patch, very rare though. As for the bugginess, some of my bugginess is from my map mod. I didn't think to disable it since it didn't have any interface changes, but I realize now that's where my culturally linked starting position was coming from (I was playing a TLC map anyways, so it didn't matter). I'm not sure if I want to disable it before I finish my game though, my game may not load with it disabled. I'll try I guess. I'm pretty happy with my game as Nubia. Those archers are great on defense as well as offense. Especially when I'm trying to protect myself from multiple fronts. The extra movement helps respond to new threats. So I can say those archers can help the builder game as well (which is what I'm doing now, no more conquering cities).
