Thanks for this excellent report, Astog! I have yet to get the game, but I was very intrigued about the trade route systems employed in Civ6 v Civ5. I was hoping that the game developers would delve a little deeper with them in Civ6, and this guide really helped me see just how advanced the new system is. I rarely used domestic routes in Civ5, but now it seems imperative to do so in order to build a large, fully functioning empire via road building and trade posts. Trade posts, in particular, excite me a lot, because it is the first time developers seem to address a crucial component to the historic development of international communication and exchange between far-flung empires (I am thinking the Silk Road between Europe and East Asia). Thanks again for the info!
