Religion Update[edit | edit source]

  • Overhauled “Religion Lens”
  • All religious units move on their own layer (similar to Trade Units and Spies)
  • Switched to unique unit flag backing for religious units
  • Display religion (if applicable) for a unit to be purchased with Faith
  • Added the ‘Condemn Heretic’ unit action to allow military units to eliminate religious units in their tile, similar to pillaging a trade route
  • Added Religion indicators to unit flags
  • Religious units now exert Zone of Control and receive Flank and Support bonuses in religious combat
  • Added two new Pantheons, two new Founder Beliefs, two new Follower Beliefs, two new Enhancer Beliefs, and two new Worship Beliefs (with new buildings)
    • Follower Belief “Warrior Monks” unlocks the new Warrior Monk unit, a medieval land combat unit with its own promotion tree that is purchased with Faith
  • Added the Guru religious support unit, which can heal nearby religious units
  • Improved long-term usefulness of Missionaries by giving their spread religion ability 10% eviction of all other religions
  • Gave nine existing leaders the LOW_RELIGIOUS_PREFERENCE trait so they are unlikely to push hard for a religion, making it easier for players to get one on high difficulties
  • Added Unit Action tooltip to show you how many followers you’ll have in a city after you spread religion there
  • Adding religious pressure to both ends of a trade route:
    • Destination city gets 1 pressure per turn of the origin city's majority religion (if it has one). This is the same amount as if that city was close by.
    • Origin city gets 0.5 pressure per turn of the destination city's majority religion (if it has one)
  • Added 8 new Relics

Balance Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Removed some of the least useful Gossip messages to improve signal to noise:
    • Buildings constructed if from 2 eras earlier than the constructing player's current era
    • Civic cultivated if from 1 era earlier than developing player's current era
    • Influenced city-state if not tied or higher than all other players
    • Land unit promoted if only to Level 2
    • Naval unit promoted if only to Level 2
    • Policy slotted if unlocked from a Civic that is 2 eras earlier than slotting player's current era
    • Tech researched if from 1 era earlier than researching player's current era
  • Move +1 embark speed from Cartography to Square Rigging
  • Allow friendly or allied spies to escape just before a nuke is detonated on a city they are in. All other spies are still killed.
  • Add Guilds as a prereq for Humanism so you have Theater Square before Museums
  • Change the Civic prereqs between Industrial and Modern so Zoo is required before Stadiums

  • Persian Immortal unit now behaves primarily as a melee unit with a ranged attack ability
