Tech tree does not show correct civilization after game or replay has ended

Game Version:

  • Build: Version 101.101.3602.0 4819260
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating System: Windows 10


In the original game, after you resgined and looked at the tech tree, the tech tree opened showing your own civilzation.

This is not the case in DE. In DE, after you resign, it will open alphabetically first civilization (ie. Aztecs).

This also affects replays. If the game is paused, the tech tree button will open the tech tree you are currently spectating. However after the game has ended, the tech tree button will open on Aztec page, while it should still open on the civ you were previously spectating.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

As a player:

  1. Start a game as non Aztec civilization.
  2. Resign
  3. Open tech tree.

Expected behaviour: Tech tree opens and shows your current civilization.
What really happens: Tech tree opens, but it shows Aztecs.

When watching a replay:

  1. Start watching a replay.
  2. Quit watching the replay
  3. From achievements screen, press “Return to Map”
  4. Select any player and press Technology tree option.

Expected behaviour: Tech tree opens, showing the civilization your currently selected player is playing as.

What really happens: Tech tree opens, but it shows Aztecs.


Speaking of tech tree, I have a quality of life suggestion: Would it be nice if the tech tree had some sort of indication of which civilizations are currently being used. This was not a feature in the original game, but would be something definitive edition should have :slight_smile:
