      AFAIK yes
      Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing?
      Then why call him God? - Epicurus

        Btw, a question, hopefully someone can answer - if i put workers (both mind and captured ones) in my capital cit, I should be able to trade them with other civs, right? Because when I tried to in my last game, I couldn't!

        (Keep in mind, this was in the modern age, so there's plenty of trade routs (land, sea and air) happening between the capitals.
        I don't know.
        Maybe you need an embassy?

            I think I have seen something like this. I could only trade away captured workers from the civ I was trying to trade with. But I have also seen civs beg for peace offering me workers of their own, and still I couldn't give away/trade away my own workers.

            Not exactly an answer to your question...

              No, I can trade workers w/o an embassy.

                  On Modding the Game to Create More Than One Heroic Epic Wonder

                  A second Heroic Epic will not increase your odds [of leader generation]. [The game] just checks to see if you have the [heroic epic wonder effects] or not [when calculating odds of a great leader appearance].
                  I think this is true for all wonder flags. I know that it is possible to have both the Great Lighthouse and Magellins Voyage (though not for long), and ship movement is still only increased by one.
                  The true nature of a man is shown by what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

                    From my experiences, the game is controlled by how the game looks at the start of a turn. Therefore a city founded that turn would not be recognized as a city until next turn.

                      hmm, thanks for the answers guys. Maybe its just a weird quirk in this particular game.

                        Nice thread. I'd be happy to see some more things along these lines if you can ferret some out.

                          If workers are counted as military units then your situation satisfies the requirements for barbarians to appear.

                            Any chance of some info on the requirements for culture flipping.

                            I had a quick scan through the forums but couldn't find anything.
                            Are we having fun yet?

                              OPD, you should search more . I remember some info revealed, IIRC associated to a patch release that changed the rule a bit, tuning down the probability.

                              I remember into the equation are:
                              - how the city is near current owner's Capitol versus owner after flipping's Capitol.
                              - the number of city square that are overlapped by neighbour cities border
                              - number of military units garrisoned inside the city

                              Sorry if I can't help more.
