In nomad map and start form castle age, china has starting from 3 people as other civ. In previous version, when TC are built will spawn other 3 villager, that will have 6 people and food is 0 after TC are built. But after DLC - Lord of West, china TC are built there is still only 3 villager and food is 0. Then it is very difficult for china civ for playing nomad map to compete with other civs.
China villager number in nomad map and start from castle age are wrong
Can confirm this. Starting a nomad game in Castle or Imperial Age causes Chinese to not get 3 villagers on TC completion. The same thing happens with Mayans and Incas not getting extra villager or llama.
Tatars also don’t get two sheep for their first TC. I guess the manipulations to adjust Tatar sheep bonus for first TC have caused this problem with Chinese, Mayans and Incas.
