    Hitler should be a playable leader for Germany. Yes he is awful, yes nazis are bad but it is history and Stalin Mao etc have been in the game and they were butchers as well.

    To be fair some statements are straying away from "opinion" and into "falsifiable facts". I'm not surprised to see those falsified on an internet forum.

    The problem with him is the game would be banned in Germany, at least, which is a major gaming market.

    He is available as a mod.
    Apart from the ban in Germany, the reasons he shouldn't be in the standard version are:
    (a) He is far too recent.
    (b) He didn't do much apart from one big try at a DV before rage quitting by firing a bullet into his own brain. Whatta noob!

    Want another level on the disaster intensity button.

    Level 5 would be:
    1. Cattle produce cow farts raise CO2 emissions, warm planet.
    2. Population growth raises CO2, warms planet.
    3. Cutting Trees heats planet.
    4. Physical activity warms planet.(Working tiles against nature.)
    5. Thinking requires food so is severely limited.(Campus is against nature.)
    6. Being alive requires food so growing food is severely limited as people produce CO2 and warm planet.
    7. When threshold is reached you have to stop all population growth and all kill off your population to save the planet.
    8. Player wins who has last person standing; then dies as that is the end of civilization and you've saved the planet.
    9. Rewards for fastest accomplishment
    10. Earth sings a happy dance at the end.

    El Dorado and King Solomon's Mines should return in Civ VI as natural wonders (and a few mythological natural wonders can be added as well).

    IIRC we used to have Winston Churchill in one of the civ games., and I think also Eisenhower as a mod, along with DeGaule. Perhaps that was Civ V.

    The irony of this is you're actually replying to the thread's OP, and the "whole concept" you're relying on was never actually mentioned by them. Folks are mostly respecting these opinions as a matter of course, but it's kinda funny that the one time the thread's creator responds, you go off at them for being "triggered" :p

    I gave you a like, but younger, ruder Lithuanians will probably demand they deduct one like from me.
    Don't think that means we forgive Poland for stealing our crown!

    (a) Kościuszko was born in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Haha. He's ours. Honestly.
    (b) Looking at your avatar reminds me... Do you and Jadwiga go to the same hairdresser?

    And rightly so. It would also be extraordinarily poor taste.

    And a modded Hitler is just fine. I even played him. Even better I had an epic air war (and naval war) with Winston Churchill. This was actually an ancient start game on a TSL ynamp Earth map, but I didn't start expanding until ww2 era techs started coming on line. And yes they did build lots of spitfires, and gave me some challenges. Got pretty easy after that though, and I quit.

    Problem with such a leader is the tendency of Firaxis to make all the leaders cutesy and somewhat likeable. Even Genghis. I don't think people would like it if Firaxis "humanized" Hitler in any way, even though I disagree with people dehumanizing and making him into some kind of monster (we must acknowledge many people have the capability of evil when they achieve positions of power, you see it often with CEO's like CBS CEO). So Firaxis showing leader art of Hitler being silly and maybe playing with his German Sheppard probably wouldn't go down well. Though I would love to see the Downfall meme video when you declare war on him. :lol:

    I hate the way the game plays by the Modern eras. Would rather stop at about Industrial Age.

    You just slug it out.
    Perhaps as irl you could have intragovernmental squabbles e.g. the Trump or Netanyahu which would cause all kinds of morale problems and the possibility of splintering the country causing (make a list) negative actions.
    Yellow Jacket Marches, the toppling of the leader, etc.
    Countries in chaos.
    Reactionaries and revolutionaries everywhere, armed and unarmed; the disintegration of civilizations.

    The bio stuff annoys me especially since I came across this https://interestingengineering.com/scientists-capture-bacteria-that-eat-pollution-and-breathe-electricity
    We should have a mod for this. "...these specific microorganisms can literally eat pollution." This is a must for the green agenda!!

    Remember back when they used to make the leaders look sexy? I'm really getting old.:cry:

    It is, but I find the balance is a lot more off than Civ5 Marathon.

    The difference is that Stalin and Mao are actually hailed as fathers of their modern nations in their respective countries.
