    After Indonesia, Japan is probably second best at small island cities. Their ability to cluster districts together lets them get more yields out of less space.

    Interesting bit from the latest devstream:

    They moved a bunch of policy cards from the three modern era leaf civics (suffrage, class struggle, and totalitarianism) to ideology. The policy cards they left in the leaf civics where buffed, but are now exclusive to the governments they unlock with. This means that if you don't intend to ever switch to a particular tier 3 government, than you never need to bother researching the civic that unlocks it, which will save you a little bit of culture in the endgame.

    Hungary, Mali and Phoenicia look like "Slow start but god help you if you don't disrupt them" civs. Hungary needs money, envoys, city state placement, time for city states to build up and the right techs to utilize Raven King well, but if they do they can get loads of max-power units for defense or invasion within one friggin turn. Three or even four districts per city in half the normal time is just gravy.

    Mali needs the right amount of desert with a decent mix of hills and flat tiles, but once they get some well-placed cities and districts despite the production malus, they are like Korea but for money, with faith as an extra currency for a religious victory or purchasing buildings etc.

    Phoenicia has no yield bonuses and needs Cothons and the right policy cards but if not accosted early on they can toss out cities like nothing and adjust to loyalty pressure with ease.

    Also I suspect they are absolute garbage in MP but I want Mali anyway.

    Mali will usually have food problems too and will be sensitive to floods due to a reliance on flood plains. And with a desert start bias they are more likely to be in the center of larger landmasses, which decreases their chances of being away from neighbors that would take advantage of their weak start. Definitely a solid drawback in an MP game where enemies factor in your ability to steamroll later and can prioritize you.

    Agreed, and Netherlands some kind of protection against it. Either that ornadd techs that all civs have access to and just give civs with a strong historical tie a bonus to 'em.

    People are posting some old civ's changes:

    1) Stepwells (India) are immune to droughts.
    2) Tsikhe (Georgia) is a bit better but I don't recall exactly what its old numbers were. Now cheaper and more defensive bonus than regular Ren Walls, +4 faith.
    3) Egypt: immune to flood damage
    4) Japan: units immune to hurricanes, civs at war with Japan get double unit damage from hurricanes

    I get it but to me that seems like it is straight out supernatural power - they didn't do anything to cause the storms that destroyed the invading armies. It wasn't any sort of scientific advancement or a technology or any other feature of Japanese civilization, they just got damn lucky the storms happened when they did. Seems a bit silly to me.

    They were experienced enough to know that you should stay out of the ocean when there's a giant storm happening.

    Which is apparently more than I can say for most of their East Asian rivals.

    Not getting damaged is not to the part I find weird, it's the doubling your enemy's hurricane damage that verges on the magical. How are they doing that? Is it giant fans, wind mills on reverse, monks chanting weather spells, what?

    It's not ruining the game forever for me, just sort of breaking my suspension of disbelief.

    I guess if they wanted to be more realistic, they could have specifically given China, Mongolia, and Korea a double hurricane damage malus, rather than just anyone who's at war with Japan.

    Not as fun that way though.

    The polygon review is pretty much what I was expecting. The grievance and diplomacy systems are a welcome addition but all the environmental and global warming stuff is pretty weak. Given that the grievance system works great in the Endless series, that's not much of a surprise. And given that diplomacy seems to be ported from Civ 5, that likewise isn't much of a surprise.

    On one hand, I like that they took a chance with something new like environmental impact but on the other, by Civ 5's 3rd expansion the game really fleshed out. It feels like a missed opportunity to tune up the AI and really pull Civ 6 together by improving existing systems.

    Hopefully there will be mods that help tune the environmental stuff. I remember how much of a pain they were in SimCity back in the day, I'd love to have an option for some really unrealistic stuff for a challenge. Speaking of unrealistic, has anyone done a Kaiju mod or anything? Seems like that could be fun with random Kaiju or Aliens that you ally with other civ's to take down and get bonuses by doing so.

    Duh, forgot this was only the 2nd expansion. I suppose that's good news, they have 1 more to go to complete the game. Though I wouldn't be surprised if they moved to a paradox model, they have this running on iPad's and the Switch, with that core work done, kind of makes sense to do more expansions than normal. Are Paradox's expansions $40 though?

    Well.. no, but if it were a Paradox expansion it would be 19.99 for the expansion with the diplomacy and new civs plus 2.99 for the unique unit art plus 2.99 for the new civs to have a custom leaderhead plus 5.00 for the music plus 9.99 for the natural disasters 2 months from now.

    On the plus side half the changes would get pushed in a patch to all players anyway.

    Julius
  • enlightenedbumenlightenedbum Registered User regular
    The free parts of this expansion is a patch:

    Increase weighting for Naval Superiority AI trees to focus on building sea units.
    AI tries to figure out if a city is on the periphery before taking it, avoids jumping into the center of the Empire unless it needs to.
    Allow AI to levy for defensive purposes.
    AI now simplifies/focuses trade deals when requesting trades, rather than asking/offering a smorgasbord of items.
    Correct an issue that was preventing the AI from properly theming artifact collections.
    Don't warn or get angry if partner converts target city of religious emergency.
