    I don't remember about the spy specifically, but in most cases, whatever you do during the "next turn" wait counts as if it's done on the turn after. For instance, if you purchase a unit while...

    Correction: Get used to how it works, learn your coups, and you'll get to live with it, but you'll probably never get to like it.

    Espionage, my most hated part of the game, but between some...

    Kind of agree. However, there ARE issues with unit movement management. My personal pet peeve is when you ask a unit to move along a road, and the unit can move, say, 6 tiles on road, but the final...

    I do find that in most cases where I settle in the starting location, I end up finding there would have been a more optimal location for my capital a couple of hexes away. However, given the limited...

    I have a lot of thoughts to add to this subject, but I don't have time right now, so I just fixed the most glaring error. :rolleyes:

    Not sure what max flavor is. From a quick glance, Forbidden Palace has a happiness flavor of 250 (!?), but that is very extreme, most buildings and techs have flavors in the range <50, or at least...

    It can be pretty deadly. Personally, I have played as Assyria and gotten Scout + Warrior + Swordsman + Archer + Composite Bowman + Horseman + Siege Tower from it. Obviously AI will be less talented...

    Vikings reached as far as America (Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada), the route went over Iceland via Greenland and then on to America. Some people speculate that they didn't get that far by...

    Steel was completely taken out as a tech. I would post an image of how the tech tree looked, but photobucket makes it very small, so I don't know if you can make anything out of the image. :p

    No need to move iron reveal back to iron working even if moving that tech back. I've played with a mod that moves iron working (and thus swordsmen) back as well as move longswordsmen back to metal...

    Worker improvement would be the only logical choice imo. Linking it to a fort seems more like a random way a modder would get something into the game which was not there by design. Restrictions...

    Didn't know about this, surprised nothing more was said of it. I'm not against the idea, but it seems like a bit of a symptomatic treatment - imo. Swords should unlock in early classic era, and...

    Pyramid? Instant Science AND Religion head-start that will easily hand you the entire game on a platter - all at the cost of 1 GPT?

    Or the preview may have been faulty. At this point, I believe as much in one as I do in the other. That's why I would like to have some substantial testing.

    And then again, someone tried to do some actual data collection that seemed to indicate that Cover was *not* working, i.e. damage received over an - admittedly not too large sample of two times 5...

    Well good news is that some people stepped in with some new information - apparently the cover bonus is applied to the ranged combat strength of these units, the error is that the combat preview...

  20. Cover I/II promotions not working against City attacks and Air units

    This is a rather frustating and illogical feature of the game at the moment, but according to playtesting over at civfanatics Cover promotions don't work against cities and air units. Cover I and II...

    This. The fact that they turned it down for religious reasons means that they are not going to be swayed by any common-sense arguments or other appeals. It's a dead horse imo.
