    May I please find out which lines of codes did you observe the "world era+1" from?

    It's done by multiple experiments. This world era calculation may be hard coded in the dll so I didn't find them.

    I can confirm that I did some initial tests when @Lily_Lancer asked but never finished them... I went back to them after the writing and can confirm this seems to be the case also.

    @Lily_Lancer it would be nice if all of the bits about great people were in there to make it complete and more useful... but its up to you of course.

    Are there any other unknown issues about great people?

    Okay, I heard that Adam Smith do not work properly in most cases. Since I never seen him appearing on my GP list, I don't know the mechanism of the unusual Adam Smith. I'm wondering whether those who appreciate this GP really recruited him once or not.

    I can explain for Mary Ricky and the tourism +50% policy, these two interact with each other so that the GS tourism do not work properly with the policy. The same happens to Relic*3 and Kandy.

    That's sad to hear I was really hoping to to edit that so it's World Era + 0. Would really stop killing off the great people then. Great job on the find though, would explain a lot of things.

    Most GPs are of no use. Kongo or Russia or Greece maybe your best friend for SV since they may reach Atomic era on culture tree early enough to help you avoid many useless GSs. If that happens before T150 it really makes sense. (And you have to totally destroy other Civs so that only you and one of them can be more than 50% of the current existing Civs.)

    Yeah and most of the useless ones tend to deny the better ones from spawning and that's really annoying. Thanks for the tip though I'm more interested in forging the greatest civilization than winning the fastest game.~

    Thanks for collecting the info.

    I just realised in a recent game that, in my view unfortunately, the whole concept of GP Era is World Era +1 is taken to the limit.

    I played a peaceful Deity game with Smoother difficulty and lower tech speed, which ended up with three out of six civs in the information era while we were still grabbing GPs - the problem is, it then considers information era+1 so upon someone receiving the first information era GP of some kind, the system jumps to those of the next era (...) and no further GP are available.

    Great tip! Three other civs max remaining and one of them needs to be advancing deep.
