    I hear the patch caused some save issues, from that picture, it seems to be affecting DLC.

    Why did this happen when I decided to finally play the game after owning it for over a year, ugh.

    Can someone explain what the fuck happened to my game?

    The new patch broke old saves, especially those with DLC civs. This is common.

    Whenever I play this, I always go for the giant sprawling empire with 12 cities type of build because it gives me more places to spawn units from. I don't know how else to play.

    help
    I'm the exact opposite I don't think I've ever had more than 6 cities. I build cities in only the best spots, unless I really need iron or something.

    I tend to build a good amount of cities but I do place them carefully, not willy nilly like the AI.

    Guys, what's the name of that mod that extends research time, but keeps build times short?

    I hope the next expansion focuses on adding an actual future era.

    G&K seems to be focusing on the earlier eras (Ancient-WW1), which is nice because they were lacking a bit of depth, the lack of religion and spies was really bad, especially religion since it was, and still is a big part of nations all over the world.

    Do you guys know anything about modding? I want to attempt to make a complete Soviet conversion, with 3D units models and everything.

    I just captured Mecca and that just leaves the Mongols and their civ's capital. I'm not sure if they took out another one but I'll find out one way or another as I invade

    This may have been mentioned already, but I preordered Gods & Kings on Steam and it showed up in the library for a few days but now it's gone. I kinda figured it just merged with Civ V since it's an expansion but I just wanted to make sure Steam didn't lose my purchase or something

    It's early game. Everyone's started to make wonders and I need one badly. I start producing The Great Library.

    It has 2 turns left. Everything is going we- THE GREAT LIBRARY HAS BEEN BUILT IN A FARAWAY LAND

    No biggie, this happens all the time. I start on the Stonehenge, since it's an awful wonder that nobody wants and is guaranteed to complete.

    Again, 2 turns left. I hit next tu- STONEHENGE HAS ALREADY BEEN BUILT IN A FARAWAY PLACE

    I bought all except Polynesia. Take the civs that interest you, eschew the scenarios which are horribly broken by now anyway. The new map modes with the Danes are pretty cool if you want more variation.

    It's in the DLC tab now

    I hate that you can't play peacefully, the Ottomans where the highest scoring player with double the points of the guy that was second and they do a back stab on me for no reason and play peacefully to all the other guys.

    The year is 1884, the United States is the first to enter the Industrial Era. The civilizations around me are growing incredibly fast, and I can feel a war coming. I'm fucked.

    So It's 2005, and I'm the only civilization in the modern era, and the rest are stuck in Industrial. I was wondering why everything was going so slow when I realized that I took out the second-largest power in the world to get here, and everyone was relying on his research agreements. So yeah, I single-handedly stunted scientific progress just by invading someone. That's awesome.

    In my cultural game as the Aztecs, Augustus formed a huge empire and forged research agreements with everyone. He was clearly going for a science victory, and the entire world was in the renaissance when he hit the modern age.

    I don't like ancient era/classical based civs. It just feels their unique units/abilities are only useful for a very short period of time.

    Fuck you Elizabeth, if you ever pull a time win out of your fat ginger arse again I'll wreck shit. I was doing well, just nuked Onondaga and got their Uranium deposits and BAM time defeat.



    First ever game too, I thought I was going to win. I saw that Elizabeth was starting a space victory so I was trying to get enough nukes to destroy her.

    Edited:

    6 hours 12 minutes, how long does a normal level 2 difficulty large map game take?

    Yes, yes it is. I'm incredibly unorganised, as you can tell by my attempts at renaming the cities I had conquered. I'm gonna do another game as maybe Denmark or something and play things out a lot better, this game was just a bit of a mess.
