Blog post! https://civilization.com/news/entries#civilization-vi-alexander-the-great-leads-macedon
Did you hate Alex in Civ V? Be prepared to renew those feelings. He has TWO unique units, a stronger version of the Barracks, and he wants to rule the world. Seriously, I've only played one game against him and I hate him every bit as much as I hated his previous Civ-incarnation. You've been warned.
Leader - Montezuma I - This is a special edition for those who preorder, but it unlocks for everyone 90 days after official release.
National Ability - Aztecs can use their builders to rush construction of Districts.
Leader Ability - Gifts for the Tlatoani - Luxuries give amenities to extra cities, each individual luxury gives additional military power.
Unique Unit - Eagle Warrior - Replaces the standard warrior, but can turn defeated enemies (But not Barbarians!) into Builder units.
Unique Infrastructure - Tlachtli - In the Entertainment District. Gives amenities, faith, and Great General Points.
I CAN'T SPELL SHIT YO.
It's a really expansionist civ. My guess is that you pump Eagle Warriors, and then invade your immediate rivals. You use these in order to build up districts, so that your cities become powerhouses. You also make sure that your enemies have the luxuries you don't have, so that you can be more powerful as you attack your next target.
IN A SPECIAL BONUS EDITION:
New Wonder! - Huey Teocalli
This wonder probably gives a ton of faith, as it was the place where Aztecs did their blood sacrifices. Maybe it gives a small burst of faith upon every kill? It's in the blog post.
Just wait few hours for official announcements from Firaxis.
EDIT. Here is countdown.
Hey, a small nitpicky request.
I'm assuming Ngao Mbeba is supposed to be "Shieldbearer" in Swahili, since info on Kikongo seems ridiculously hard to find, and google translates it directly into Shield Bearer as well.
The thing is Ngao Mbeba is grammatically incorrect. Swahili (and likely Kikongo) compounds words in reverse order to English. So "Fireman" for example would be "Manfire".
So Ngao Mbeba (Literally Shield + Bearer) should actually be reversed to Mbeba Ngao (Bearer + Shield). You can actually see it in this excerpt from the Swahili Bible (1 Samuel 17:41).
> Wakati ule ule, yule Mfilisti, akiwa na mbeba ngao wake mbele yake, akaendelea kujongea karibu na Daudi. > > Meanwhile, the Philistine, with his shield bearer in front of him, kept coming closer to David.
So if you could fix/look into that. It'd be much appreciated.
Yes, I use the Microsoft RDP Android app. Civ works perfectly for an office time killer. We have been doing a large Thin Client deployment at work, it is a click a button wait 20 minutes for a progress bar type of install. So I have had a lot of down time lately. Here is the app, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.rdc.android You will have to open up the remote desktop port 3389 and figure out what your public IP is.

I thought the misattributed Flight tech quote was bad enough, considering the false author also gets the credit in the game's theme song as well.
Whoever was in charge of handling the quotes at Firaxis didn't do a very good job at researching them, or just didn't care.
Quote in question: "Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."^
What I really hope for is that they actually implement this bit from the blog post:
> ... Polders also served a military purpose. As Wilhelmina alluded to Kaiser Wilhelm II, opening the sluice gates at high tide and sealing them at low tide created an inaccessible swamp the German army couldn’t cross during WWI.
Imagine if polders counted as land for your military units only (and maybe for open borders or allies, too). That'd bring some really interesting tactical depth to polder placement as well.
This emperor, went piety first and went straight for sacred sites, got pagodas, mosques, and cathedrals in my religion with tithe and religious texts.
ITT: people who have played for long time feeling ashamed for not noticing this feature that was added to single player in September 2019 update. No need to be ashamed, nor shame others for not noticing. I usually select my civ in the simple view and then switch to advanced view where I don't anymore look to the left side where civs are.
This looks like a new scifi dystopia called 'The Wall', where a wall is built around the UK to keep out rising sea levels and refugees. It's dark.
edit: link to the audiobook which is narrated by Will Poulter (a.k.a. that guy from Bandersnatch).
I don't necessarily disagree with what you're proposing, but I would like to point out that the Lusitania was a British trade ship. Its sinking was more like when "a friendly trade route was plundered." Also in the case of WWI, when the Germans moved troops through Belgium without permission (Open Borders), it was an immediate declaration of war.
That said, a bit more flexibility in war declaration/more tension in the buildup would be nice, but I bet that was something far more extant in previous games. It seems like Civ V took some pains to simplify its concepts in order to make things more... streamlined? than previous games. Actually, have you seen the recent article about war in Beyond Earth? It might be what you're looking for: Link!

> For 30 years you’ve raised cities, built wonders, and rewritten history a million times over. Civilization simply wouldn't be the best strategy series of all time without its players. So over the next few months we’re commemorating three decades of greatness from Civilization players with new challenges, fun surprises and amazing offers.
Nothing specific, but there is a short letter from Sid Meier on the site.
You could also extend this. Drop a third Pairidaeza on the bottom space by the city center and Commercial Hub, then a Holy Site next to it on the woods. You'd get an additional +3 culture and +4 gold out of it, plus whatever religious tourism if you're going that route, though I'm still not sure if religion is worth it for Cyrus. I guess more great people from faith is a plus.
Edit: Whipped this up real quick: https://www.screencast.com/t/zyx39Npw3SD
Those are the full bonuses to gold, culture and tourism just from placement alone. Not too shabby.
So I have IFTTT set up to send me a notification for when something named Civ V AI Only World Domination is posted to this subreddit. It sent one. I was so excited.
Please continue this soon. I've already begun to get sick, and I fear the hype may kill me.
Blizzard is likely going to write him into WoW. Someone creative get to work on a Robin Williams Civ V mod!
> chose whichever thing fit their smug millenial worldview.
Nothing shouts compelling argument like shitting on millennials (which is how you spell it, FYI), but considering the game's developers are mostly on the older side, it doesn't really hold up:
I loved how there were no cars by the major churches, to keep everything feeling period authentic.
The food is also terrific, be sure to try Mario's, by far the best steak I had while there, only open for lunch. The house wine is also great there, as it is in most places there.

Civilopedia? They're barely getting actual game text correct. Spring update says:
> Corrected the bonus text for the Zoning Commissioner Governor promotion (it said 30% but it is actually 20 %.)
I made decisions as if it was 30% since the day R&F was released... because I rely on game text instead of combing through code...
>Well...at this point the only thing in common is the name.
See that picture? the only picture in the article is from the real civcraft
They stole renders from a server who's name they copied in an advertisement. Thats fucked up.
Get the demo's, try them out man! That's what demo's are for!
I think they did a few minor changes to the AI, such as better district placement.
Some notable ones from last patch that could be what you're experiencing:
Improved AI ability to move great works around to get theming
Improved city planning with regard to adjacency bonuses
Improve ability to utilize city-states, beyond just suzerainty
Here's an IFTTT recipe that will send you an email for the next one in case you get tired of waiting. You can also tweak it to send an SMS to your phone.
They kinda fixed this in the February update, it's still not overwhelming but I've had to build some anti air units which I never had to before.
The culture and science from teddy's ability applies to tiles he owns. In the picture he hasn't settled yet.
And to answer u/Epic_sheep 's question - since the february update
One of the advantages that both a square grid and a hexagonal gird share is that they can both be easily mapped to an x-y coordinate system. A square grid should be self-explanatory, and a hexagonal grid can be mapped as shown here. However, using the pattern in OP, this is not the case. If I had a settler at, for example, position (4, 16) what would that even mean? There is no clear answer. In order to describe a position accurately you would probably need a set of 3 or more numbers, and even one additional number could considerably increase the time for calculations, and would absolutely increase the complexity of the underlying code base.
Whenever you need to know if a game will run on your systems, knowing your actual specs is important.
That in mind, check this out:
There will be Persia, one other civ, scenario(s) and balance changes.
>In addition, the Spring 2017 update to Civilization VI will come with balance changes, multiplayer changes, and bug fixes for everyone who owns the game!
He said a lot of stupid shit.
>We are ready for any unforseen event that may or may not occur.
>I believe we are on an irreversible trend towards more freedom and democracy, but that could change.
>We don't want to go back to tomorrow, we want to move forward.
Brave New World contains all the changes of Gods and Kings, minus the new civs. Your cheapest option for getting all the DLC is to get Civ V complete which goes on sale pretty frequently. You can use a site like http://isthereanydeal.com to see if it's on sale.
Humble bundle. 15 bucks gets you ~~every single DLC up to BNW.~~ G+K and BNW only.
The DLC Civs, Map packs and scenarios are not in there, my bad I tought it was gold edition.
You also get a crapload of other Sid Miyer's games.
Except, they call this out in their article so it's a -safer- bet: https://civilization.com/news/entries/civilization-vi-gathering-storm-new-expansion-release-date-pc-february-14-2019/
> You’ll find that with Gathering Storm you can also create both Mountain Tunnels and Railroads. Even more ways to bend the map to your will and make sure there are really efficient ways to get units and trade goods across your empires!
Definitely not bad, but a bit short on food in the long run.
I think I vote for https://imgur.com/APupi when it comes to best starting position.
Do note that there is just enough food to mine every single nonpig hill.
Just going by Wikipedia…
> Statistically, the VOC eclipsed all of its rivals in the Asia trade. Between 1602 and 1796 the VOC sent almost a million Europeans to work in the Asia trade on 4,785 ships, and netted for their efforts more than 2.5 million tons of Asian trade goods. By contrast, the rest of Europe combined sent only 882,412 people from 1500 to 1795, and the fleet of the English (later British) East India Company, the VOC's nearest competitor, was a distant second to its total traffic with 2,690 ships and a mere one-fifth the tonnage of goods carried by the VOC.
This page has some good info as well.
I wanted to present to you my latest modding endeavour: Wonders of the Ancient World Deluxe. Wonders of the Ancient World is a DLC for Civ V that introduced three new wonders: The Statue of Zeus, The Temple of Artemis, and The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. It also came with a scenario, in which you competed with four other civilizations in amassing the highest score - primarily through the construction of the seven wonders of the ancient world (+The Oracle and The Library of Alexandria).
This scenario was made for the vanilla game, and consequentially lacks many of the features of Civilization V today. I've updated this scenario according to those features, adapting it to the mechanics of religion, international trade, espionage, the Melee/Naval naval split, and 100HP-based combat. I've also expanded upon it, using a number of existing mods as a base to increase the number of available technologies, social policies, civilizations, and wonders. If you'd like to know more, please see the wikia.
If you've enjoyed the work that I have done for Civ V modding over the years, please consider donating to Paypal. Any support would go toward supporting the expense of purchasing a new desktop computer, which has become necessary with the recent passing of my laptop as a modding tool. If you do wish to support me, then please consider PMing me (unless you wish to remain anonymous, of course), so that I may thank you personally. Any help would be immensely appreciated and would ensure that my modding career continues.
Pay more than $8.77 on Humble Bundle to unlock Civ5. It's a good enough deal to not pass up. Pay more than $15 and it unlocks their new expansion which is $30 by it self.
This!! This is the same case for my 15” MacBook Pro which come with 87 watts. If you use the 13” adapter at 65 it works, but slowly drains the battery under load as u/mixmastakooz states. Then Mac OS kicks in to keep it powered on; you get huge performance hits which are understandable.
As an aside, I always travel with just one adapter for everything and this works for my laptop on planes.
As an aside, u/mixmastakooz does civ 6 have good touch support? I’ve been looking at an XPS 15 or 13 with the 4K touchscreen option.
There are 0 cases of people getting their accounts terminated for just using a VPN to play a game early. What gets you banned is buying a game using a VPN to get it cheaper.
I've used a VPN on steam to play stuff early for years (done it for fallout 4, New Vegas, other civ games, etc) and had no issue, and I challenge you to find a case of someone being banned for doing this.
You can do whatever you want but there is close to zero risk as long as you don't buy anything while the VPN is activated. Private Internet Access is a good choice if you're interested in buying one, otherwise there are a bunch of free VPNs you can sign up for and use the trial for this game.
I tried this before, it's fine actually. Also, here's a tip: I use the following app to wake up my pc from hibernation and automatically start up steam:
One or both of them are browser games, IIRC... I'll see if I can find the link..
I haven't played on this site so I couldn't tell you how well it works but let us know! :)

GMG folded to regional pricing, just like all the other hand rubbing merchant retailers, so as far as i see it, you are more than entitled to do the same back to them, thing is, GMG cant close your steam account, so using a proxy on their site is free game.
If you are truely uncomfortable with with use
Same thing without the proxy but salightly higher cost and less reputable site.

If so, then you certainly don't have a hardware issue. I would recommend making sure all your drivers are up to date and checking the integrity of the game files on your game. (just google it if you aren't sure how)
My first time posting a save so if I screwed up, sorry.
It's on sale on GreenManGaming right now for $32
Bear with me here, because this sounds crazy even to me:
>Considering that CivilizationCraft is advertised in a large variety of ways other than reddit.
Glad you brought that up.
Heres an ad that Civilizationcraft had a little bit ago
Notice something weird? Perhaps its the only picture in the article, and the fact that it was a render from a city in Civcraft. Obv nothing is wrong with stealing renders from a competing server and using it to advertise your own.
>(and that maybe 300 different people actually play Civcraft for more than a couple days)
I would love to read a source on this, considering we have a potential player base of 6000.
Sure. I, like many, had a fun time playing it for like a week or so. But you then realized how shallow the game really was. They scrapped half the game modes and features.
The water level? What happened to that? You went from microbe to animal in like 10 minutes of game time. Going from single organism to tribe was not only repetitive, but it also fell completely short. If you notice in the intro video, they removed the phase of evolution where you build tools and go to tribal warfare in a primitive society. Nope, just attack other animals then go straight to building skyscrapers!
Then when you do planetary attacks, they called it a phase where it acted just like "basic risk and basic civilization." You kill 3-4 cities and then BAM! LETS CONQUER THE GALAXY!!!
The conquer the galaxy portion was probably the most thought out and executed part of the game. Unfortunately even that failed to become fun after you conquered 30 planets and couldn't build fleets.
Edit: In reality, here's what I thought Spore was going to be.
Also, less cartoony bullshit.
I take Earth Goddess in 90% of games, so I reluctantly appreciate this balance. And it's definitely still one of the strongest pantheons.
The original announcement always made clear it would be spread over two DLCs. I really have no idea where folks got the idea they would come as one, probably just reddit as an echochamber
"In the coming months, we’ll be releasing two additional Civilization & Scenario Packs for Civilization VI that will introduce three new leaders representing civilizations from Africa and Southeast Asia."
Here's a link for the complete edition of Civilisation 5, it has every single DLC and is totally legitimate, it costs £9.
When nostalgia hits hard, like when the soundtrack first starts up. or the distinctive dying sound of the enemy soldier.
Good thing we're all able to relive it via the C&C bundle.
In Anthropology we call it Cultural Evolutionism. The way it's portrayed in Civ, it would be Unilinear Cultural Evolution, as all societies go from simpler to more complex forms along the same path and stages, although at different times. You can check http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/146212/cultural-evolution
EDIT: I'm sorry, I seem to have misunderstood your original question. You were looking for the opposite view to cultural evolutionism. I think that could be Historicism, or again, more specifically, Cultural Historicism. As you would expect, this position states that each societies path is unique and defined by its own particular circumstances. Check here for a short introduction. Of course, more post-modern historicists emphasize the fact that history is non-linear and doesn't always "march forward".
> I discovered the Pantanal thanks to Civ VI
This is exactly why I think it's cool that the devs are going for diversity in civs, leaders, wonders, etc. You learn about cool stuff you never heard about. Where does it say that [POPULAR_CIV] needs to be lead by [FAMOUS_LEADER]?
By the way, if you want to contribute to saving the Pantanal as well as restore ecosystems worldwide, consider switching your default search engine for Ecosia.
This was absolutely changed in an earlier patch, they reintroduced the concept as part of RaF, namely that Magnus top tier ability allows the city in which he is established to benefit from any number of IZ regional buildings.
See the Winter 2016 patch notes:
Hey man, just wanted to let you know it is not a preorder exclusive. AFAIK, the preorder bonus is an EARLY ACCESS to the Aztec civilization. It will unlock for EVERYONE free of charge after 90 days (from release). ^^source
Try verifying game cache integrity (Right click Civ in Steam Library - Properties - Local files - Verify integrity of game cache).
If that doesn't help, install CPUID HWMonitor (or similar software) and leave it running while you play. Alternatively, install FurMark for GPU stress testing.
If your GPU core temps rise near 100C, it's very likely GPU heat issue. Maximum safe temps vary between different GPUs, though, some low-end graphics card can experience problems even around 85C.
Place name definition from Oxford English Dictionary
>Place Name - the name of a geographical location, such as a town, lake, or a range of hills
Place name as a noun is not exclusive to settlements but also includes geographical places.

Playing Vanilla feels more than a little bare after playing Brave New World.
BNW is definitely worth it; it adds quite a bit to the late game, such as the World Congress, which changes the nature of the diplomatic victory in addition to shaping your relations between civs. It also added Tourism, a yield somewhat related to Culture that completely changes the Cultural victory. Tourism is related to Ideologies, expanded versions of Freedom/Order/Autocracy, and the level of Tourism you have over another civ (or vice versa) will influence their happiness, as well as numerous other bonuses (and is how you win a cultural victory).
If there's other DLC you don't have yet (other civs, map packs, etc), you can get the Complete edition and it will fill in everything you don't have (note that it won't give you doubles of what you already do have, i.e., you won't get a second copy of Vanilla or G&K). The Complete edition goes on sale fairly often, and you can use a site like http://isthereanydeal.com to see...if there's any deal.
You're right, they said "two additional Civilization & Scenario Packs for Civilization VI that will introduce three new leaders representing civilizations from Africa and Southeast Asia."
So I guess it's possible (but seems unlikely) they'd crank out 2 new leaders for existing civs and call it the 6th DLC?
The DLC announcement itself is on the front page of their site: https://civilization.com/news/entries/civilization-vi-digital-deluxe-new-content-free-dlc
The expectation it'll be this month is based on their current schedule of updating builds to QA groups, and a leak from Aspyr.

Alright, Firaxis (/u/FXS_PeteMurray and/or /u/RxKing). Can we get some official CIV VI wallpapers, please?

He is right about the gaming press, look at the difference in reviews at Metacritic:
Critic Reviews: 90/100 - Gamer Reviews: 7.0
Could also be due to reviewers not getting enough time to play. I remember my first 2-3 games were great, then I noticed all that was really wrong.
Alright! I had some issues with Mediafire, but all is well now!
Here you can download the scenario with totally random civs, but with the issue of them starting in awkward places.
Here I did a bit of renaming of civs and placed them appropriately, with the following options:
Let me know if there are any issues. Also you need BTS for the other link.
The update fixes an incompatibility issue with the Really Advanced Setup mod (which caused Sieidis to not appear), increases the cost of Sieidis from 75 back to 100, revamps the Sieidi improvement placement code (you are now more likely to get only 1), and lowers the base yield gained from herding from 10 to 7.
For those who want to, I've also got a separate <strong>debuff file</strong> for the Boazovázzi which will further lower the base yield from herding to 5. Just extract into your mods folder (My Games/Sid Meier's Civilization V), and allow the computer to merge folders and replaces files when asked, just make sure you get the latest update before doing this. You can tell if you already have the latest version if the UA description reads: > Founding cities reveals all tiles within its working radius. Cities founded on or adjacent to Tundra or Snow receive additional [ICON_FOOD] Food on adjacent Tundra and Snow tiles and claim all unclaimed resource tiles within its working radius.
Chiming in just now.
I guess I'm "that guy". I haven't played much of civ 5 in the past 6 months, and it so happens that I randomly started a game as the Americans for fun, to get the B-17 achievement. I swear I didn't even notice that I got the achievement. I thought it was the "Flying Fortress" achievement popup and got happy, turns out it was the Raiders of the lost ark.
I couldn't found them earlier because my happiness wasn't high enough to warrant building one more city, let alone two. Now I'm good to go, though.
EDIT: where would I find the save? This is my first non-comment post to this sub.
EDIT 2: I ended up going with this setup. I'll update again with how it turns out. Thanks for all the help!
EDIT 3: Save
If worse comes to worst, give FreeCiv a try. It's basically an open-source clone of Civ2, and can be played in a browser or as a downloadable program.
Otherwise I'd recommend trying to set up a private LAN via Hamachi or Tunngle. These tools let you basically set up an internet connection with a group of people that acts like a LAN connection, so you don't have to worry about thing like port forwarding.
I highly recommend reading through the full release from Ed Beach. He goes over a lot of the features in some detail.
I'll explain so people see you're not horrible:
The Dutch <em>verkrachting</em> mainly means rape, but can also be used as violation
It is a common idiom to say "hij verkracht de taal" (lit: he rapes the language) to mean he's butchering the language, without trying to sound edgy or crass. Just a translation misunderstanding.
The original I made is actually a huge file if you wanted to get rid of the compression I could have given you the original file with layers and the rest. If you want it let me know.
Edit: They are not as big as I remember, it's because my computer started to struggle with the file due to the amount of layers/text, I had to rasterize them to finish it off. I've uploaded them anyway if you wanted to mess with them V9 is unfinished but is before I rasterized the text and V12 is the finished one but it still has some layers.
Check out UnCiv on Android. It's a great minimalistic 2D civ V with full functionality - diplomacy, policies etc. (looks kind of like the first two civ games). It's made by one guy iirc, who's constantly improving it. It even has multiplayer, map editor and mods!
Edit: link added for us, the lazy ones: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.unciv.app
I got it from the same source I got the other terms:
Thornton, John K. “The Art of War in Angola, 1575-1680.” Comparative Studies in Society and History Vol. 30, No. 2 (Apr., 1988), pp. 360-378.
"Nevertheless, the heavy infantry of Kongo was feared -- Baltasar Afonso, a Jesuit who witnessed the early campaigns in Angola, wrote in 1577 that the adargueiros (shield-bearers) were the best troops in the country. But their numbers were limited -- most Kongo armies seem to have had no more than 1,000 adargueiros, although their distinctiveness was sufficient that illustrations of the time distinguish them from the inhabitants of Ndongo by their arms."
So, that appears to be the term used in the sixteenth century by the Portuguese for the Bakongo shield-bearing infantry. However, I have no idea if the term still exists in modern Portuguese or its meaning in Portuguese (I think it's from "adarga" which comes up as buckler [a small shield] in google translate).
Edit: Oops, my comment appears to be the only google result because I made a spelling mistake switching the i and e; it should be "adargueiros" not "adarguieros". Sorry about that.
> "If I determine the enemy's disposition of forces while I have no perceptible form, I can concentrate my forces while the enemy is fragmented.

alpha centauri's wonder vids were the absolute best
Yeah, if there going off the same schedule as Civ 5, there was only like a 6 month window between announcement and release. All that being said, I hope im totally wrong and they announce Civ 6.
http://www.ign.com/articles/2010/02/18/civilization-v-announced (date of the article: 2/18/10)
>But a sale like this is very rare
That is where you are wrong. This is actually extremely common. As you can see here, you can get Civ 5 Complete Edition Steam key for $11.97, and that's just the normal price. I suggest you just get it from there.
I'd suggest setting an alert at isthereanydeal.com - Civ V Complete goes on sale almost weekly for $12.50, so it'd be easy enough to buy her a Steam copy.
Does she have all the DLC? If not, this would actually be a really nice gift too, since the expansions add so much.
Quickly made a rough version of the map /u/natdaprat posted. All it is is his map made in CiV using the YNAEMP Giant Earth. All the new land is grassland for the time being. If anyone wants to add different terrain go ahead.
I wonder how it's pronounced. The city definitely existed:
> In pharaonic times it was probably the town of This (Tny), ancestral home of the 1st dynasty (c. 2925–c. 2775 bce), which unified Egypt.
Ok... Why is there a Kinguin link there? I ask you to not use it for the sake of the developers. They're selling stolen keys and the developers won't get what they deserve. And there's is risk involved for you as in some case's the keys have been revoked by the games owner's (publisher probably), and in some rare cases Steam accounts have been closed for using these stolen codes, bought from these sites.
I got Civ VI for -20% from https://www.greenmangaming.com/ which I'm 99% sure is legit site.
G2A and Kinguin are not.
Edit: The -20% seems to not be available in the US. Confirmed to be in EU atm.
Can get both expansions for 15 bucks (or one of them for like 7). You'll be missing out on some of the smaller dlc but still a good deal. Civ 6 is probably a long way off. Plus you'll get civ 3 complete, civ 4 complete, railroads, ace patrol, and another copy of civ 5 you can give away.
This one was a rough one - it also almost didn't get published!
The idea started out that Benjamin Franklin is well regarded as one of the founding fathers, and honestly contributed much to the cultural image of America. And technically he *was* the president of Pennsylvania, so... More seriously, it's because of his ginormous impact that I became interested in making him. BUT! Procrastination almost got the better of me. I was working on another project right up until the start of July, so I scrambled to get this one done. As such, I'm not so happy with the art or design. In a perfect world, I'd have made a Printing Press UB that replaced the Workshop, and have mechanics that revolve around spending diplomatic favor in exchange for stuff like arms and aid from your allies. And I'd have far better art. But, what can you do - maybe I can give another swing at it next year?
Also, if you like my mods, consider donating to my [Buy Me a Coffee page](https://www.buymeacoffee.com/PortLimeCivMods). I'd really appreciate any donations, though they aren't at all required. So in any event, enjoy, and Happy Independence Day!
I'm hoping we'd finally get to use her at her full power, something to help in Diplomatic victory perhaps?
It's on the announcement site (https://civilization.com/news/entries/civilization-vi-gathering-storm-new-expansion-release-date-pc-february-14-2019/)
>NEW LEADERS AND CIVS: Nine new leaders from eight new civilizations are introduced. Each brings unique bonuses and gameplay, as well as a total of nine unique units, four unique buildings, three unique improvements, two unique districts and one unique governor.
Thanks. I saw the larger numbers too and thought it was fine, but I'd never bet on myself when technology is involved. I used www.systemrequirementlabs.com. Guess I won't be using them again.
Thanks for your help!
Seems to not meet the minimum RAM requirements. If you're unsure and low on funds it's probably not a great purchase. Check out the return policy before making a decision.
For those looking for a Civ-themed board game, I can't recommend 7 Wonders highly enough. It can be played games in under an hour (rather than 3+ hours for most Civ-like games), plays almost equally well with anywhere between 3 and 7 players, and has a ton of replayability (especially after getting the Leaders expansion).
Just buy the complete edition, it's probably your best value even if you already own the game.
It's on G2A.com for ~$14 if you wanna go that route. I personally have never had a bad experience with that site, but one of my friends said he never got his game (just select the G2A shield option at checkout and you will get your money back if anything goes wrong).
They have BNW for like $12 but may as well spend a little bit more and get all the other DLC as well.
In addition, if you don't want to wait, you could always check out G2A. It look like vanilla is currently $8.60 and the complete edition is currently $18.67.
Brave New World contains all the gameplay additions of Gods and Kings, but not the civs themselves. Your best bet is to wait for Civ V Complete to go on sale (it does so fairly often), which will automatically download all missing DLC. You can use http://isthereanydeal.com/ to see where it's on sale.
