Re: Closed Fixing Starting Crates

At this point, strongly considering just removing coin starts. It would do the most for balance, by far, and wouldn't remove any variety, since the options are largely the same as for the food start. It also does away with the arduous task of rebalancing both crate starts, and civilizations accordin .....

Closed Fixing Starting Crates

As you may already be aware, about 60% of the community votes on the issue were in favor (slightly more than the previous poll).

It's specifically intended to be a unique unit, available only from the home city. It's in the description. It should be less unviable, though!

Re: Beta Chinese Discussion

I think that the Keshik and Steppe Rider (two unviable units) buffs, as well as the Mongolian Army (consisting of these unviable units), are highly unlikely to cause a balance issue. In case they do, I'm happy to tweak or revert them. I consider the Black Flag Army somewhat risky, and will be monito .....

I regret being so slow.

It's a minor bug, overall, but it's strange that it says that the games have not been downloaded. I've downloaded them twice, already.
