    one thing about civ 6 i really dont like is all the religious unit spam and how it can block movement

    so now i play games with all the opponents as mvemba of kongo since he cannot make his own religion

    no longer do i have to worry about contact and the following flood of religious units

    Sounds awfully boring, and I don't mean the lack of religion.

    Yeah, I couldn't stand hearing nothing but Kongo's music all the time, but I think it's actually a pretty good idea. A better way to implement it would be modding Kongo's "no religion" ability to affect all players. Maybe the AI would fare better if it built something else than holy sites all over the place.

    Can't you just switch off Religious Victory and ignore the units?

    It still gets annoying. I always have religious victory off, but they still build lots of units and try to convert your cities. Though my current game they haven't been aggressive in converting me yet.

    I thought this thread would be a way to change the game files to get rid of religion. Wishful thinking.

    I'm guessing a quick and dirty way of doing it would be to change the value of UnitType="UNIT_GREAT_PROPHET" DistrictType="DISTRICT_HOLY_SITE" MaxPlayerInstances="1" in GreatPeople.xml to 0. The AI will still probably build holy sites, but can't get a prophet. So all they can use their faith for is to purchase great people (+ other stuff with the right government or suzerainty).

    They really need to get rid of the civilians being able to block you mechanic, especially within your own borders.

    Civilian units should only be able to block other civilian units, and military units should only be able to block other military.

    The fact that I can protect a CS or other allied city by sending a protest squad to block access to the city is idiotic.

    Or maybe it should only be available with democracy. Hah!

    I thought about that right after posting. Or change it to some obscenely huge number of GPP to get a prophet. Could be interesting as the AI would get some value out of the holy sites, but they may still waste too much production building them. I still think religions are interesting, but I'm just not interested in the conversion game.

    Since Kongo is generally the toughest AI this could also make for a more challenging game. I wish religious units where like archaeologist, only one on the map per district at a time. They would be much more manageable then. The combat system would have to be totally redone though, lol.

    Love the conversation since the religious side of Civ VI is the least fun part of it for me. I'll have to look into some of the suggestions. I'd not want to cripple the AI's ability to buy GP with faith, only their ability to found religions & creat religious units.

    I agree; I am fed up with all of the religious units. Especially when spies come with them. (Looking at you, CATHERINE.)
    And I think that they show up without open borders, too. :badcomp:

    There is a global param where you can set the max number of religions I think.
    There was also another thread where someone had an elegant way of doing it, I just cannot remember what it was... unless it's the above.

    It only takes 2 simple lines of code to basically remove religion. There will still be a Stonehenge religion that will only have 2 beliefs so turning off religious victory is advisable because it turns out passive religious spread is pretty powerful when there is only one religion. I use it in my own personal mod that I can add or remove elements from. I would post it as a downloadable mod but I don't know how. Here is the code I use:

    UPDATE Districts SET PrereqTech= 'TECH_ROBOTICS', PrereqCivic= NULL WHERE DistrictType= 'DISTRICT_HOLY_SITE' ;

    UPDATE Districts SET PrereqTech= 'TECH_ROBOTICS', PrereqCivic= NULL WHERE DistrictType= 'DISTRICT_LAVRA' ;

    You lose a lot of flavor but it certainly cranks up the challenge.

    By the way, you can move the ability to build a holy site to any tech/civic but there is an era limit on great prophets, so the total number of religions founded will be variable.

    This sounds like removal of a feature like amenities or housing. Religion is there to play with and the best counter is to have your own religion. You really have no interest in a free follower or worship belief?

    The best counter is to just ignore it, have you ever seen a civ win an RV?

    No. I thought the point here was that missionary spam was annoying, not that the AI dominates religion game.

    Yes, but before any of the patches only.

    Of the thousand things that annoy me about this game, that's gotta be 999. I must be lucky or something. I have seen the odd screenshot that has a carpet but I have never faced one. I have had the odd religious unit in the way but that's it.

    The only time religion has annoyed me was a recent game where I was Saladin, and by the time my religion was founded, a neighbour had so thoroughly spammed me that even my capital was impervious to the charms of my own religion. Hence I couldn't even generate one missionary to 'prime' the religion.
