This thread is for posting things you’d like to see in a future patch (ie post the June 2019 Update). Honestly, I think it’s unlikely we’ll get another Patch in 2019. But FXS did seem to take some ideas from the last patch suggestions thread, so I thought this might still be useful. Personally, I think the main things that still need work are Coastal and Colonial Cities (including raising maintenance costs and nerfing the CH and Market so Coastal Cities are more important for gold) and overall Unit Balance. Also, while the June 2019 made some good changes to Production, Tier 3 buildings and Science pacing, I think there still needs a bit more work making the “puzzling the map” stuff more interesting (eg giving Lumbermills back their river adjacency) and the Campus still needs a solid nerf given how early it comes. These are my suggestions: Industry and Production Industrial Zone. Adjacency are +0.5 for each Lumbermill and Quarry (no adjacency for Mines); +1 for each Strategic Resource, and for Stone, Copper or Mercury Resources; +1 for each Harbour or other IZ; +2 for each Aqueduct, Dam, or Canal. Industrial Zone Maintenance Costs increase by +1 per Government Tier. [New] Tech Hub. Tier 3 IZ Building, unlocks at Telecommunications. Allows stacking of Industrial Zone Building Regional Bonuses (i.e. Magnus' Vertical Integration Ability). Each District in this City also gains +1 Production and +1 Science when Tech hub is powered. Cost 600, Maintenance 5, Power Requirement 4. (Uses Research Lab graphics.) Mines. Upgrades are now +1 Production at Apprenticeship for all Mines, and an additional +1 at Industrialization but only for Mined Resources. Quarries. Additional +1 gold if Quarry is adjacent to a Harbour or Commercial Hub after you research Mercantilism. Lumber-mills. Revert to providing +1 production and an additional +1 on a river. Lumbermills provide an additional +1 production at Machinery, Steel and Cybernetics. Farms. After you research Irrigation, Wheat and Rice provide +1 Production if next to a river. (see also Coastal and Colonial Cities; Harbours and Sea Ports, and Government and Governors; Magnus.) Science and Infrastructure Campus. Remove adjacency for geothermal.

Tier 2, 3 and 4 Governments provide all Cities with a Governor respectively +1, +2 and +3 Loyalty. Governor, Magnus. Verticial Integration no longer allows stacking of regional effects (see Tech Hub above). Instead, +1 Production for each District in this City, and +4 Power. Governor, Liang. Reinforced Materials allows Districts and Buildings in this City to be repaired with Gold.
