Manually control citizens after setting the city to production focus.

Also cut down any spare forests for them production boosts if needed.
Don't do that last tip if you're playing Celts. You need forests to boost your faith per turn.

The complete pack is on sale atm for £8.74 until the 3rd of August.
BNW is the only DLC that I haven't got so I may finally get it now.

I only started playing Civ 5 (G&K) last month, but I've played enough of Civ 3 and 4 to know what I'm doing. Am I right in thinking BNW is a lot different to vanilla and G&K?

Just remember to build trade ships and caravans, also check the social policies to make sure they allow you to build the wonders you want

Also get friendly with city states later on

It's not only a lot different, it's a lot better ;)

Tbf, religion is already a big change, but Trade routes are the best change civ has ever made. Completely changes the game and completely for the better, it's the one reason I just can't go back to previous versions.

Cool, can't wait to try it out.

Does religion have more importance in BNW? It doesn't appear to be too damaging if you don't found one. I've played plenty of games where I've not managed to found a religion or even a pantheon and I've done pretty well. Especialy if I play as a Civ that doesn't have relgious/faith bonuses.

Trade routes help with the spread of religion, which can be pretty useful if you have certain beliefs such as Tithe. Other than that, I'm not really sure what other benefits there are. Don't usually play religion-centric civs.

The general consensus seems to be that you go with a religion if you manage to get one, but don't go out of your way to get one because you can otherwise do fine.

Did the 'one city challenge' with a few friends earlier. I was way ahead in points (I've never been this far in front of everyone else before). I decided to get cocky and try to take someone out before they got to industrialization. The statistics said I had the biggest army, so I decided to attack a friend. Little did I know, they had a bigger naval army than I did... Sooo I got wiped out pretty quickly and was out of the game </3

Rookie error that.

Never try and get cocky when you don't know the strength of your enemy. I did that in my first ever game, and wound up getting my capital taken over by the Byzantines. Since then I've typically tried to avoid conflict unless it was absolutely necessary.

Haven't played Civ V in ages so I might have to christen my new laptop by installing it tonight.

Kept playing my latest single player game into the 2130s. But my empire was so big that it started to collapse in on itself because of unhappiness. So many cities and citizens that having all the happiness buildings and policies couldn't prevent rebel uprising. It was quite funny when rebel Giant Death Robots appeared and then immediately walked over the nearby border and screwed over a different civ.

So Brazil's pretty good

Usually Jungles are bad, but found a pantheon that gives +1 culture from jungles, then make a carpet of brazilwood camps for +2 gold and +2 culture, then make universities for +2 science and you have quite a nice level of resources coming in. And Pracinhas have the icon of a snake which is cool.

Also they do well at bashing Bismarck's head in

Sweden have the worst AI in the entire game I swear

They're expansionist while being eton mess at it, their tech is always bad, they will denounce you while you're friends with them, they'll declare war on you even when you kicked their ass twice already during the game, they'll always be "plotting against you" forcing you to put troops on your border DESPITE having a declaration of friendship, and then they'll just sit on their hands and get in your way while you're fighting a solo war against a maniacally powerful Bismarck.

gooseberry fool Sweden.

I've liked the games where Sweden are in but not bordered with me. Because they're eton mess and either get taken out and identify who the real threat is or give me a place I can get a foothold on the new continent. They've also given me some good trade deals in the past.

I started playing Civilization VI today. It's different to Civ V so I don't feel comfortable with it. Exactly the same as Beyond Earth. It works differently. I started with Civ V and that's the one I fell in love with, so when it doesn't work the same way, I don't like it as much. Some of the things might be better, but I'm not used to them, so I'm struggling on the second easiest difficulty. Also, it visually looks eton mess when playing. All the things I saw beforehand looked great. But actually playing it, it looks rubbish.

download the HaiFuri mod.

you're still playing as japan but now your leader is a cute anime girl and you get access to japan's impressive BOATS, such as the Harekaze, Musashi, and Hiei instead of mediocre samurai and zeros that do gooseberry fool all.
