BalanceEdit

  • Governors:
  • Government Balance Pass – Rise & Fall
  • Government Balance Pass – Base Game
    • Fascism: Civ6StrengthIcon Combat Strength from 4 to 5.
  • Policy Rebalance:
  • Civ Balance:
    • Victoria’s Pax Britannica ability now additionally awards a free melee class unit when constructing a Royal Navy Dockyard in a city founded on a foreign continent.
    • Lautaro's unique ability Swift Hawk has been updated to have an additional effect: Pillaging an enemy city plot now causes that city to lose 5 loyalty
    • Rebalancing Seondeok's Hwarang ability. Governors established in a city provide +3% Civ6Culture Culture and Civ6Science Science for each Promotion they have earned, including their first (was +10% Civ6Culture Culture and Civ6Science Science for any Governor regardless of Promotions).
    • Norwegian Berserker - Civ6Production Production cost reduced from 180 to 160. Combat Strength buff when attacking increased from +7 to +10. Combat Strength de-buff when defending reduced from -7 to -5.
    • Japanese SamuraiCiv6Production Production cost reduced from 180 to 160. Combat Strength increased from 45 to 48.
    • Georgian KhevsurCiv6Production Production cost reduced from 180 to 160. Combat Strength increased from 40 to 45.
  • Eras:
    • Made it so when somebody wins the game in the Information Era, it reset all players to be in a Normal Age and take away all Dedication bonuses. This puts everyone on a level playing field for "One More Turn" mode. (If somebody wins in an earlier era, continue the progression of eras and Ages as normal.)
    • Rebalancing Era Score of historic moments related to late game city projects:
      • Manhattan Project and Operation Ivy now worth 2 (was 1)
      • Satellite launch, Moon landing, and first Mars component are now worth 4 if world first and 2 otherwise (was 1 in both cases)
  • Monasticism dark policy now provides +75% Civ6Science Science in cities with Holy Sites (was +100%).
  • Map Generation:
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Religion can now affect the Loyalty of a city. For players who founded a religion, cities get +3 Loyalty for following that religion, but -3 Loyalty per turn if following another player's religion.
    • Updated Foreign Ministry (Government building): Unit combat bonus now applies to City-state units even when they are not levied.
    • Number of envoys received from Liberating City-States is boosted as you progress through the game.
    • Commandos’ Melee unit promotion now grants +1 movement

Moddability UpdatesEdit

  • Governors and Governor Promotions now use 'Promotion Sets' which allows more than one governor type to be associated with a promotion and vice versa

Bug FixesEdit

  • Only show the "Capital Lost" when a player loses their original capital city (was also showing when a player lost their new capital city that also happened to be the original capital city of a different player).
  • Fixed for Priority Target highlighting invalid hexes.
  • Districts that cannot be repaired because the player is missing their pre-requisite Tech or Civic (ex. in a conquered city) will now say this in the city production UI.
  • For Great People that activate over luxury resources, a tile with a district belonging to another player is no longer treated as a valid activation tile (and it will not end up highlighted)
  • Frederick Barbarossa's UA no longer gives a combat bonus against Free Cities.
  • Liberating a city will now make that city immune against your Loyalty pressure, as was the design intent.
  • Correctly display when a Wonder needs an adjacent district. Clarified that the adjacent district requirement also must be a district owned by this city.
  • Fixed the combined arms boost by changing it to be “Have 3 Armies or Armadas.”
  • Fixed Victoria's Pax Britannica ability in the base game.
  • Enforced that cities cannot be founded on tiles with districts. It was possible before with the relaxed minimum city distance present in island situations.
  • Fixed an edge case where the historic moments for creating a Trading Post in another civ could be repeated and exploited
  • Made it so Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi only heals land units.
  • Fixed Bugs related to expelling units out of a City's or Civilization's borders when applicable. Units should no longer be expelled from a Free City when it flips due to loyalty unless the city flips to a major civ and rules require it.
  • Fixed an issue with not counting armadas and Fleets for the Triple Seven achievement.
  • Ensure proper display of National Parks after a save is loaded.
  • Don't show Paradrop unit action if unit cannot move.
  • Fixed a bug preventing the Hetairoi Great General bonus from being applied when in the same hex as a general.

  • Addressed audio issues with large and mod-expanded map sizes

Text fixesEdit

  • Corrected the bonus text for the Zoning Commissioner Governor promotion (it said 30% but it is actually 20%.)
  • Updated Rise and Fall Agenda descriptions to include what that leader dislikes.
  • Clarified Kilwa's description to show that it increases the type bonus from city states instead of the yield.
  • Removed a redundant font icon in the name of a city-state quest.
  • Updated Civilopedia text for Anarchy, since Anarchy does not affect Era Score.
  • Clarified text for Georgia's Unique Ability.
  • Clarified text for first sea/air unit Historic Moments.
  • Added information to technology descriptions about what resources are unlocked for harvesting (some were missing).
  • Document that Patron Saint Governor Promotion also helps Warrior Monks.
  • Removed "doubling" and "tripling" in description of effects for Tourism6 Tourism. Use +100% or +200% instead.
  • Added Housing6 Housing info to Polder description
  • Fixed the Fascism combat bonus description being incorrect in base game.
  • Updated wording for Religious Alliance to indicate that it refers to cities dominated by the player's religion.
  • Changed some text that was incorrectly referring to "Identity" instead of "Loyalty.”

Graphic FixesEdit

  • Reduced the amount of snow on the Arena building so that it doesn't blow out as much at night.
  • Don't play Paradrop animation if the destination tile is not visible to the current observer.

AIEdit

  • AI respects and uses new rules for joint wars and third party wars
  • AI evaluates joint and third party wars based on the chosen casus belli, and applies casus belli to its own offers
  • In trading cities, AI considers resources and great works it will gain or lose in the deal
  • As part of a city attack, will not pillage a separate city’s districts
  • AI will prioritize a city over units if it can capture or nearly capture the city
  • Fixed issues with AI strategies, including yield priorities and era strategies (as reported on community forums, thanks!).
  • Fixed government bonus analysis problem. AI will no longer focus entirely on monarchy.
  • Fixed issues regarding embarking units near enemy warships, evaluation now takes proper account of that.
  • AI can modify a deal with just Civ6Gold Gold when asked what would you give.
  • Germany (or anyone favoring minor civ war) won't care about their relationship to a minor civ suzerain unless it's them.
  • Give Greece and Pericles some preferences for Civ6Culture Culture and envoys.
  • Fix round off problem that was giving low threat values in duel maps (or with only 2 Civs left).
  • Free cities units that are not involved in attacking other units will stay within their own territory.
  • Improved city defense unit management.

MultiplayerEdit

  • Auto End Turn is now disabled for the remainder of a player's turn if they unready their turn.
  • Fixed multiplayer stall related to players disconnecting while the host was loading into a game.
  • Fixed zombie connection issue that was preventing some players from joining multiplayer games after a previous join.
  • Players should not be able to unready their turns after their turn timer elapses.
  • Dead civilizations are no longer selectable after loading a save in multiplayer.
  • Multiplayer quick saves now go in the proper save folder for the current game mode.
  • Fixed default multiplayer handicap for third player in the Jadwiga's Legacy scenario.

UIEdit

    • Appoint Governor Notification will not appear if the player does not yet have a city to assign one.
  • Updated the window style of the Dedication screen and Era Rollover screen, emphasizing Era / Age types.
  • Added Civ6Food Food needed for Citizen6 population growth in City Details Panel.
  • Made sure we only show the Emergency row and tab if there are emergencies involving both the selected player and the local player.
  • Fixed an issue where players could have duplicate city names, all names have to be unique now.
  • Espionage mission history for failed missions will now show loot information if provided in the mission info
