NO Spy ability?

Thu Feb 07, 2019 6:56 pm

Why do some of the new civs not seem to have the "Spy" ability that allows you to see the map as opponents see it? I have searched every building. I can not find it anywhere. This seems a grave oversight since so many DO have it.

Haha, it's ridiculous indeed :hmm:

And before someone else talks about blockade-Mapuche, blockade doesn't work on them and it really makes sense.

Its because mapuche don't use a homecity. Mapuche's cards are techs pretty much from a coding perspective. Fixing this would require setting all techs to unobtainable in the code when the tech is researched.
