Indeed.

It's a tiny bit better nowadays, but in the past I wanted to simply kill it off even with the cost of loss of functionality it provides. Getting clean replacement would be better, but I don't know if anything has given us new feet to stand on since this was last adjusted.
It is an special case, outside the scope our frameworks can reach to help.

Both good points...

It does feel like an ugly special case that we should generalise though.

Umh, do we do upkeep_factor on individual unittype level now (instead of a city)? And does also the "Upkeep_Factor" effect support that resolution? I don't think so.

> Could also use Unit_Upkeep_Free_Per_City = lots


No, that at least cannot work on unit level. Think about city having different mixtures of fanatics (that should have upkeep zeroed under Fundamentalism) and other units (with normal upkeep).

Should now possible to implement with a user unit flag + Upkeep_Factor effect?

e.g.

(Might be a bit fiddly if the rest of the ruleset has complex Upkeep_Factor use. Could also use Unit_Upkeep_Free_Per_City = lots for a simpler, more hacky solution.)

I haven't tested this idea at all.

As always, this might cause a regression in the ability of the AI to spot the utility of Fanatics.
