Post Use for corporations - plagues/ideologies?
I don't think I ever played a game of vanilla civ iv to the point where "corporations" came into play, so I don't know all the details of how that mechanic works - but I do know that RI has never found a way to make use of them, which seems like a waste of a good game mechanic. If corporations are a "parallel" to religions, and can cause various positive or negative effects in cities, then why not have them represent something that spreads in a similar way - plagues and revolutionary ideologies? You could have a "Black Death" corporation in the Middle Ages, a "Bolshevik Revolution" corporation in the Industrial era, or anything similar. I'll offer some more ideas when I have a chance to look into it, but let me know how the concept strikes you.

My first response was 'that doesn't make any sense', but on second thoughts, this is a pretty interesting idea. I'm seeing a parallel with EU4's Institutions, except not so focused on technologies. I'm not sure it would work well with the corporations mechanic, though.

Thanks, but there will be no further major additions to RI. Its development is basically over.

Guess I was confused on that - wasn't there some big thing underway where you were expanding the breakaway-nations mechanic, or was that something else?
If 3.4 really is the last version, then good show.

3.5 will be the last one, but it is already finished, and just waiting for someone to build the installer.

What is Hype Train? Is it a continuation of RI?

Wrong forum for that dialect of internet slang I guess - just looking forward to the new release.
Speaking of, any word on when 3.5 could be ready?
