    Clearly, the message the devs want to give is that omnicide is the only solution.

    My thoughts exactly.

    I'm almost positive this reviewer then went on to Reddit to call anyone who thinks it might not be the best idea to suck China's tiny cock 100% of the time, BIGOTS and RAYCISSS :lol:

    Tooltips need a serious fix.

    "Cannot be done because the current position is not valid" is a little vague...

    Have to comment on one feature that is absolute massive incline and sorely missing from the Civ games: All your cities can put their production towards one wonder. Yeah this woke-infested game has something more realistic than civ, go figure.

    Yeah, tooltips and almost half of all the fucking popups. "The Mongols now feel very different about you". Cool, would it strain your arse-bone too much if you simply told me: did the relations meter went up or down? That's what it boils down to and it saves me a bunch of clicks.
    Pretty much all the diplomacy-oriented popups are being useless like this.

    For those of you still getting their bearings in the Neolythic era, collecting all the curiosities needed to get the era star lets you pick a legacy trait (i.e. shit that stays with you for the entire game),
    a not-insignificant bonus either to science, production or food that is easy to miss (and irrc it's the only era star that actually gives you such a bonus). Might be worth postponing picking the culture for a turn or two to grab it.

    Going for mammoths seems not very efficient. Sure, you get both Influence and Food out of this, but you'll also probably take casualties in the process. It's nice to have a bunch of scouts (you can do much better than just 5 if you pay attention) survive to the next era,
    because you can just convert them into population or rush the neighbor's outpost. Or put them on auto-explore and even if you're land-locked, they'll keep stumbling into curiosities for a bit of extra resources as long as you keep a few tiles under fog of war.

    There's plenty of ways to cheeze your movement in this era, you don't need to spend actual moves to initiate combat but doing so always eats up all moves. If your tribe just grew a new dude, detach them and you'll still have some moves to use for this turn.

    Once you move past the Neolythic Era, the game will force you to convert one of the eligible outposts into a city, which might not be the one you wanted,
    and you won't be able to end the turn until you do. You can usually postpone lots of stuff in this game, but somehow not this.

    also:
    Seems like their patching broke some more shit.
    Just had the endless bug on turn 120 (seems to happen on round numbers, magic). It never happened in combat before, but I guess there's a first time for everything.
    Combat was stuck on loop on enemy turn and as opposed to the standard endless bug, the game turned out unsalvageable.

    Save the game when it's bugging, then reload and click end turn.

    That I did, like I sad, did not work for this particular instance of this bug. Opponent had horse archers with their annoying move after attack thing and I think one of them had no good spot to move to.
    Just one more reason to hate them.

    Pirated it to try it. Good news, it plays on Linux just fine. I didn't face an issue, although it ran like shit in terms of performance, but i hear it runs like shit on Windows as well, so i don't know.

    Bad news, it sucks huge black cock. This is not the Civ VI replacement. It is worse in almost every area, including graphics in my opinion. Insta-deleted it and i won't be trying it again, or buying.

    A retard shouldn't comment on realism. It is not "realistic" to have multiple cities contribute production to a single wonder. Production doesn't work like that in real life. Just because you have a construction crew in Tokyo and another in Los Angeles, doesn't mean you can combine them to work on a new Pyramid in Los Angeles with the Tokyo guys working from home.

    If they wanted it to be truly realistic, they should have removed production from cities altogether, and only allow it on individual buildings like barracks for army units, and worker/construction units that would build all improvements on tiles AND city buildings, and then you could just move all workers on a single city to build a wonder. THAT would be realistic.

    Yeah it's not like people from all over the world came to work on the Manhattan Project, or that different cities worked on the stones for the pyramids and sent them to one location.

    You fucking mong.

    Its a better system than any similar game and it allows you to finish wonders in a more reasonable time rather than waiting 10000 turns for everything.

    What isn't even close? Caravan production cost is 50, and adds 50 production towards a wonder. You get 100% of the production transferred.

    And it takes turns to build, move and execute.

    In Peoplekind you directly set your cities to work on a shared project. And you can change the lead city in case you urgently need an army for example.

    So you think magically and instantly transferring production from one city to another is "more realistic". Okay.

    They should had gone for a middle ground*.

    Harappa should turn into Aryans (Yes, that's literally what they were, no Nazi bs) into Guptans into Pandayans and some middle-Age Indian equivalent here to Maratha to Bharata.

    The Celts should go from, well, Hallstaat, Gaul, British, Medieval, modern.

    Russians from Venedia-Slav Migration to Kiev to Novgorod to Moscovy to the Russian Empire to the USSR to Russia now.

    Get what I mean? Sure, it'll be messy, and some things don't align right, and some things wouldn't make sense outside of a pure earth historical map (Egypt and Iran and India being vastly disrupted by the Greek, Roman, Parthian, Arab, Muslim, British cultures, for example, how do you account for that in a grand strategy game where, say, Babylon ate England?)

    Or even just Ancient India, Classical India, Medieval India, Modern India, Industrial India, Atomic India, Contemporary India....

    But the culture-flipping doesn't seem to have worked out.

    When it comes to the culture-flipping thing, I think they should have looked up some language family trees and design the cultures around that, with clear progression within a family and possible branching off. Would make a bit more sense this way.
    Mechanically speaking, I think it's not a bad system (as long as you accept it for the fantasy it is), but they could make it much more freeform. So I'm the first one to pick Olmecs, how about letting me pick my own specialization, legacy trait and then decide what my
    unique unit and building will actually do. The fact that they chose the Olmec heads to focus on Authority is arbitrary anyway. So why can't I choose to make it science oriented next game? One could argue, that a more freeform system means it's easier to abuse,
    but the game in its current form is all about finding broken combinations and abusing the system as much as possible. Especially when you're looking to catch up to the cheating AI.

    Another thought, this game really doesn't want me to play with nukes. Bloody shame, because I was quite looking forward to blasting all those pms-ing womyn that screech at me because of bad relations. Turns out, the game usually ends just as I am about to deploy any of the modern toys. Or something just randomly gets in the way. One game I struggled to get to the third source of uranium. Another game, all my missile silos were outside the range to hit anything meaningful. I couldn't use ICBMs, because you need approximately half a continent of clear land for the fucking testing site. In yet another game, I went for the science blitz just to get to the good stuff earlier (picking all the science and food specializations), thinking that gives me more time to setup. It still bit me in the ass because the game ended 60 turns earlier (I wasn't really able to slow this down once I started churning out late game tech each turn, and researching everything triggers the game end). So yeah, exoskeleton infantry and laser satellites in ~1600 AD

    It was quite similar with aircraft, while they're much easier to get than nukes, you still need a network of aerodromes and carriers to use them in a meaningful way, and all this shit needs research, resources and takes a while to build and setup...
    and same shit as with nukes. I usually have to wait for the carriers to get where I need them, while the ground troops would already be halfway done with the war.

    Sure, I could play the game for a few more turns, but it feels awkward to stay past the ending slides. Also, all my games so far were decided at ~turn 150 mark, so staying to 300 turns felt like I'm engaging in some elaborate delayed climax.

    Seems like they did some patching, but endgame is still broken, and for a variety of reasons. The main culprit: strategic resources, especially late game ones are just way too scarce.
    Sure, the point is to be fighting over them, but if only one player can actually deploy late-game tech because there's only four sources of oil in the whole world, and you need 2 or 3 to build endgame stuff,
    looks like someone didn't think this through. And it's not just about the player, there's no way the AI will be able to use any of the late game tech for this reason. I think the only time I fought tanks and modern infantry was vs. rebels.
    And I only saw the AI using basic biplanes in one game and that was it.
    I think a better system is to have units and improvements consume strategic resources instead of just having flat requirements (why do I need 3 sources of copper to build a fucking bank?).
    So, if your whole industry is based entirely on coal, you might not have enough for your steamboats. If your tanks are guzzling up all the oil, you might need to scrap some to make room for a few aircraft, etc.
    This could be very simple - you build an oil well, it provides you with 5-10 "units" of oil. And now, each modern unit will consume 1-3 "units", so you still can build them, but perhaps not as many.
    Lose access to strategic resource, you'll have to pick which troops will get supplied.

    I haven't played with the patch yet (iirc it's a beta steam build), so I can't really say how significant the changes are.
    I'm playing other stuff currently, so I'll just wait until they finalize it and some kind of a torrent turns up.
    It's mostly a bunch of fixes, but they also seem to acknowledge some of the big problems. Some highlights:

    - Fixes to the AI being stuck in combat are the most welcome ones.
    - Some tweaks to the warscore calculation (and the value is now actually displayed on screen). I'll wait until I see it, but it should make more sense now.
    - Not sure whatever the fuck is the "attacker anachronism" thing.
    - Huns got nerfed, question remains - were they nerfed enough.
    - Some tweaks to pollution - higher tresholds and ways to reduce pollution. Never had too many issues with it myself, the game ended long before it ever became a factor, but as long as they teach the AI to stay clean, it should be a step in the right direction.
    - Sadly, no word about re-balancing late game strategic resources
