What does the recycle icon on the "create trade route" screen mean?

    It's two arrows pointing around in a circle, and it has a number next to it... what does this icon and its number mean? I don't think this is present in the stock game...

    There is a thread for those questions: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/quick-questions-quick-answers.573489/page-142
    Its better than creating one thread per question.

    For the answer: it is the number of turn the trade route will take to complete. (Very important information for Ottomans)

    Sorry for bothering everyone then! :)

    So not all trade routes last for 30 turns anymore? Why is that?

    Never lasted 30 turns. Caravan or ship has to do few full circuits, so it depends on how far the destination is.

    30 turns was a approximation from Vanilla behaviour, and is still a valid approximation in Vox Populi. However, it is (and was) not exactly 30 turns since the caravan has to finish a "way and go back" to be completed.

    The formula was changed a little to take in account the roads is a more reasonable way, but except for that, it is the same as vanilla Civ 5.
