    Usual rules, you can vote until I decide to start playing, suggestions for July civs can be posted in thread.

    June will likely be special in that I might play it on the new victory code, which is working quite well already and just needs a little more testing.

    Lets go to Africa !!!! Congo needs much love since the 2nd goal is very very luck dependant IMO. I've had trouble with it numerous times. Also lets see if you will find the gimmick for slaves

    If Congo wins, I suggest Mexico for the next month to finish off all continents. Its UHV is very difficult for me but it looks to have a lot of potential.

    Congo might be interesting how you deal with Portugal, especially is it 600Ad or 3000BC?

    China has fallen from Qing Dynasty 1830 to PRC 1958 in terms of power in these polls :crazyeye::eek:

    Anyway in real history China just landed on Mars, and Japan not yet.
    Maybe it is time to update Chinese UHV3 to include space race in it.

    China's greatest exploit are more in the past then nowadays, though maybe their UHV would be fail a mission to mars and seriously damage a Malian City?

    That's what I have been mostly working on recently. I have rewritten the entire victory code from the ground up. The primary goal of the rewrite is to bundle all the elements of a victory goal in one place, such as the condition itself, description, progress information, tooltips, event handlers, etc. For instance, the goal description will now be entirely dynamically generated based on the goal requirements, so that the display can no longer be out of step with the actual condition. I also added extensive testing for all kinds of goal conditions.

    The code is almost ready and has already been used in practice, but of course we can only be completely sure after playing the UHVs themselves in a real game. So this would be great test in practice where I can address issues that arise alongside working on Congo (or another eventual winner) in parallel.

    At the moment, I only have to catch up existing tests to some code changes that were necessary, and then catch the entire rewrite up to all the changes that happened on the develop branch in the meantime. I plan to then make the branch available for everyone to play on in case you're interested, before merging it a while later.

    Kidding asides, a PRC civ would be a very interesting late game challenge. Though it probably should only spawn if whoever controls China is unstable, a bit like Byzantium.

    Are you implying the founding of Maoist-Lenninism thought isn't a universal inevitability?
