Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI - Aspyr_Lucy


The next update in the award-winning Sid Meier’s Civilization franchise is live for Mac and Linux on Steam! This update includes a number of balance changes, AI adjustments, multiplayer changes, and bug fixes. There is also a new premium DLC available for purchase!

Persia and Macedon Civilization & Scenario Pack

Persia, led by Cyrus, is perfect for players who want to build a rich empire, and who aren’t afraid to launch a sudden, unexpected military strike. Macedon, led by Alexander the Great, is a powerhouse conquering civ, with special units and abilities that let Macedon bring the world under its control from early in the game.

The DLC pack also includes two new Wonders and a new Scenario: The Conquests of Alexander. Can you conquer the known world before your time runs out?

For the full set of changes to the Steam Mac/Linux version, see below:

Civilization VI Mac/Linux – 1.0.0.129

[BALANCE CHANGES]

• Harbors now give a major adjacency bonus with the City Center, +1 Food to all Coast tiles when the Lighthouse is built, and +2 Gold to all Coast tiles when the Seaport is built.

• Australia now gets +1 for Charming/+3 for Breathtaking on the four affected
districts (had been +2/+4) to compensate for the Harbor boost above

• Royal Navy Dockyard now always provides +1 Trade Route capacity, even if the city already has a Commercial Hub. This makes it more useful, even when
England builds it on its home continent.

• Added “Future Civic” to the end of the Civics Tree, a repeatable Civic to research and add to the player score.

• Bomber units are now more effective against cities.

• Swordsman are now reduced to 36 combat strength.

• Damages now remain on City and Encampments when a city is traded.

• Siege units with bonus movement (e.g. from Great Generals or Persian surprise war) can still shoot after moving as long as they still have 2 MP.

• Adjusted Warmonger penalties for Diplomatic status:

o When applying a warmonger diplomatic penalty for EITHER declaring war or capturing a city, reduce that penalty if you are enemies with the target of that warmongering as follows:

-20% warmongering if this is against a player you have denounced

-40% warmongering if this is against a player you are at war with

o NOTE: This is not used in situations where you are fighting a Joint War
against the target power or when Sumeria joins as ally in war (in both those cases the penalty is still zero).

o EXAMPLE: Macedon is at war with Persia. If India goes to war with Persia
sometime in the middle of this Macedonian/Persian War and captures a
Persian city, Macedon will reduce its warmonger penalty against India by
40%.

• Adjusted Warmonger penalties for City Population:

o When applying a warmonger diplomatic penalty for capturing a city, reduce that penalty if the city is smaller than the average city in the game as follows:

If the city’s population after conquest is below the average population of all
the cities in the game, reduce the warmonger penalty by the percentage that city’s population is below the average.

o EXAMPLE: Persepolis is conquered and its population after conquest is 6.
But the average size of a city in the game is 8. So this city is 2 / 8 = 25%
below the size of the average city in the game. Therefore the warmonger
penalty is reduced by 25%.

[AI TUNING]

• Improved coordination for multiple attacking units.

• Ranged units better understand how to capture civilian units.

• AI should now generally accept embassies when neutral, and reject when
unfriendly.

• When asking an AI to equalize a deal that has elements on both sides of the
deal, it will consider a gold-only change before looking at other possibilities.

• Increased AI’s desire to repair pillaged Districts and Buildings.

• Minor civs will no longer go after policies that give them extra influence they can never use.

• Made it easier to meet the positive side of the environmentalist agenda

• AI will now build multiple Neighborhoods.

[BUG FIXES]

• The Great Works tooltip in the deal now shows extended information.

• Melee units can no longer attack embarked units.

• Pillaged improvements no longer provide Pantheon bonuses.

• Fixed double-counting of Appeal from Improvements.

• Fixed broken gossip message about Seaside Resorts that made them always mention a "lost city".

• John Curtin is now referred to as “Prime Minister” and not “President” in the
Outback Tycoon scenario.

• Fixed an issue where previously constructed buildings were not showing up
properly on the Production Chooser.

• The World Tracker now keeps its open/closed state between turns.

• Additional bug fixes.

[MULTIPLAYER]

• Updating Global Thermonuclear War scenario's Proxy War victory condition to support team play.

• Expanded internet games list to show results from additional regions

• Games list was frequently not showing all available games due to UI bug.

[MISC]

• Added more civs to the True Start Location Earth map.

• Separated war/peace notifications into major civs vs. city-state.

• Added additional information to Defeat/Victory screens, so players will be clearer on why they have lost the game.

• Added "special ability" stars to techs and civics that unlock new functionality.

• Added invasion warnings to Poland scenario

• Added new Capabilities data base table to disable select game systems for
scenarios and mods.

• Added text labels differentiating Official and Community content in the Lobby
screen.

[ADDITONAL CONTENT]

• Fixed issues in the Additional Content menu with mods that contained very long strings.

• The "ImportFiles" modding action now works as a Frontend action.

• The "UpdateIcons" action now supports SQL files in addition to XML files.

• Multiple files can now be specified in the "AddGameplayScripts" Ingame action.

• Added a "DoNothing" Frontend action and Ingame action. This action is useful as a placeholder or as a container that includes other actions.

• The localization database is now written out to the cache folder.

Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI - Hinkle2K

Alexander the Great, born in 356 BC, was a king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Macedon and one of the greatest conquerors the world has ever known. Alexander’s military campaign stretched from Greece on through Asia and northeast Africa, subsequently overthrowing Persian king Darius III and dispatching the Persian Empire in its entirety – all before his 30th birthday.

While undefeated in battle, Alexander met his end during his decade-long campaign. After pushing his war-weary and homesick soldiers into India in 326 BC, they implored him to turn back and he acquiesced, passing away three years later in the city he had planned to make the capital of his empire: Babylon.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/512035/
Alexander’s tactics are taught in modern military academies to this day, and he is considered one of the greatest military commanders and most influential human beings to have ever lived.



Unique Unit: The Hypaspist

The Hypaspists, shield-bearing soldiers wielding a long spear and short sword, were among Macedon’s soldier elite. Similar to Hoplites, these units were differentiated by their more ornate equipment and were usually positioned on the flanks of the phalanx – a singular group of soldiers moving in close shoulder-to-shoulder formation. The Hypaspists’ job was to guard the flanks of the pikemen comprising the majority of the phalanx, as these pikemen wielded massive spears between 18-22 feet long and were quite vulnerable to attacks from the side.



Unique Unit: The Hetairoi

The Hetairoi, Alexander’s unique replacement for the Horseman, is a fast Heavy Cavalry unit widely considered the greatest cavalry of the ancient world. Additionally, the Hetairoi are widely recognized as the world’s first shock troops – a military unit designed to penetrate enemy defenses and attack vulnerable rear flanks. Chosen Hetaroi were elevated to the status of elite guard for the king, and would ride atop only the best horses.



Unique Building: Basilikoi Paides

Throughout Macedon’s conquests, often young boys would be taken as political hostages and raised as Macedonians. These boys, along with Macedon’s noble sons, received education and training at the Basilikoi Paides, which is roughly translated as “royal page school.” No expense was spared in securing the best tutors for the Basilikoi Paides, where boys were taught to serve, honor and protect the king, and to serve Macedon’s interests above all else.

Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI - Hinkle2K

Cyrus II of Persia, more commonly known as Cyrus the Great, founded the Achaemenid (Persian) Empire. Prior to the conquests of Alexander the Great, the Persian Empire was the largest the world had ever seen.

He built his empire through a series of brilliant military campaigns, starting with the surprise invasion of his Median grandfather, Astyages, followed by conquest of the lands of the Lydians, Elamites, Babylonians, Syria, Judea, and Patrea, after which he felt comfortable enough to declare himself “King of the Four Corners of the World.”

http://store.steampowered.com/app/512035/
Although he has something of a reputation for ruthlessness, even by the standard of the ancient world (some of his conquests had been against one-time allies or distant family), Cyrus was also known for respecting the customs and religions of the lands he conquered. His call for the repatriation of Jewish people following his conquest of the Babylonian Empire is easily one of the more famous examples of this.

His death is given in a story by Herodotus at the hands of Tomyris of Scythia, so you may want to go back and check out our entry on the Scythian queen to refresh your memory.


Unique Unit: The Immortal

Persia’s elite heavy foot soldier, the Immortal, served as both guard of sovereign and state. It is said that Persia’s army consisted of 10,000 Immortals, and that each Immortal was equipped with both long-range and short-range armaments.


Unique Improvement: The Pairidaeza

The Pairidaeza, or Persian Gardens, are closed collections of exquisite foliage meant to convey the feeling of paradise on Earth. Persian Gardens are represented throughout Persian literature and culture as places of relaxation, both in the sense of leisure and spirituality.

Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI - 2kasia*****01

With the Civilization VI demo now available, newcomers have the perfect opportunity to try out the latest entry in the Civilization series and start the expansion of their empire.
To help new players in their path to victory, we have compiled 10 basic tips on how to start a game of Civilization VI in the best way possible.

1. The first turn
You will start your game of Civilization VI with a Settler and a Warrior. The Settler will be the unit to found your first city so it is important that you find a suitable spot for it: source of water for the city’s growth, resources for food and production as well as landscapes (mountains, desert, rainforest) for bonuses. Send your Warrior out to explore but keep it close to your city in case of a Barbarian attack.



2. Take care of the Barbarian problem
Early on in a game of Civilization VI, Barbarians will be your main source of trouble. They will tend to send out Scouts to look for cities, so attack them when you see them because, if they report back to their camp, they will send more powerful units to attack your city. Build some Warriors and Slingers early to defend your city, and clear Barbarians camps so you can focus on the growth of your empire.

3. Know the map
The map is one of the most important features of Civilization VI and it is crucial that you understand and explore your surroundings. Look for Resources or sources of water, ideal city spots; find Mountains or Rainforest tiles for district bonuses; explore the seas for new settlements. Send Scouts around your empire and let them initiate first contact with City-States and Leaders so you can be aware of potential allies or enemies.

4. Plan your cities
Civilization VI allows you to organize your cities the way you want. Unlike previous games in the franchise, you now have the possibility to build districts around the city centre and placement will play a very important part in your strategy. For example, placing the Science district near mountains will grant you extra Science points every turns while placing the Commercial district next to rivers will bring more revenues. Plan your cities and specialize them to get the most out of your empire.

5. Make friends
You are not alone in this wide world. As you explore the map around you, you will encounter City-States that can be turned into powerful allies. Send Envoys to a City-State to get extra Gold, Science or Culture for example. You will also have the opportunity to become the Suzerain of a City-State and earn unique rewards that can greatly change the outcome of your game.



6. Learn about the Eureka moments
Science and Culture will allow you to unlock new Techs and Civics in order to grow your empire, all leading to new units, districts and Wonders for your empire. Specific in-game actions will trigger Eurekas, reducing the time needed to research some Techs and Civics. Settling a city on a coast will give you a boost for the Sailing technology, while defeating a unit with a Slinger will trigger the Eureka for Archery. If you want to know more about all Eureka moments, simply check the Tech and Civics tree.

7. Choose a leader that fits your play style
In the Civilization VI demo you can play as China, led by Qin Shi Huang. In the full game of Civilization VI there are 19 civilizations available to play, offering different bonuses, unique units, and buildings, districts, or tile improvements. Each of them play very differently and will fit into different types of playstyles. China, for example, can complete Wonders faster thanks to its unique bonuses and the ability of its Builders, while Rome will favour territorial expansion and trade to accumulate Gold. Spain will tend to play an aggressive Religious game with various military bonuses linked to fighting civilizations with different religions.

8. Know which victory to go for
There are different ways to win in Civilization VI and it is important to understand the requirements for the four types of victories: Domination, Culture, Science and Religious. The easiest one to start with would be the Domination victory that requires you to create a strong army and occupy all capital cities on the map. Be the first empire to start a space program and colonize Mars for the Science victory; have all civilizations adopt your religion for the Religious victory or attract the highest number of tourists for a Culture win. It is all up to you and your playstyle.



9. Adjust the difficulty
If it is your first time playing a Civilization game, a great way to start is to play on “Settler” difficulty. For beginners, it is a great way to learn the basics of Civilization gameplay without worrying too much about the AI controlled civs and Barbarians attacking you.

10. Check the Civilopedia
Here’s an important one: the Civilopedia is your best friend. Simply click on the “?” tab at the top right of the screen to get access to it. From leader abilities, to units, district bonuses, and details of each resource, you will find everything you need to understand the different aspect of the game and what is needed for you to build a strong empire through the ages.

Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI - 2kasia*****01

John Curtin was the 14th Prime Minister of Australia, serving from 1941 to 1945. He held office while the country was under direct threat of Japanese attack during World War II. He proved more than capable for the job through his landmark legislations, which greater unified the many states of Australia and assisted in its reconstruction following the war.  

Curtin, leader of the Labor Party, sadly passed away while in office on July 5, 1945. He left behind a legacy of progressive social reform and civic responsibility that ensured he will forever be remembered as one of Australia’s most influential citizens.


Unique Unit: The Digger

Nicknamed “Diggers,” Australian troops served the Commonwealth with honor and distinction in both World War I and II, on multiple continents, and often at considerable sacrifice. Their slouch hat pinned up on one side became a distinctive part of their uniform.


Unique Improvement: The Outback Station

Australian cattle ranches are called Outback Stations and are synonymous with life in the Australian Outback. The largest, Anna Creek Station, is 6,000,000 acres (24,000 km squared; 9,400 sq mi) which makes it slightly larger than Israel and seven times larger than the biggest ranch in the US – King Ranch, in Texas. Many Stations still serve their original purpose as cattle ranches, while others have been converted into Outback experiences for tourists keen to sample the country life.
