As an avid “stuff those few extra turns' production, until my next research is complete, into something I'll want to complete later” in Civ V; but I can find no ‘show queue’ button in Civ VI!

Is my production just wasted, if I switch targets?

As far as I can tell, there is, sadly, not a build queue available in Civ VI.

However, I can confirm that switching production does not reset your progress. I worked on a Builder for a few turns, then switched. After finishing the latter target and going back to choose production, I had the same production applied to a Builder, and was able to complete it from where I had left off.

Something to note: When building a District of any kind, the destination tile for that District is set whenever you confirm its placement. Changing production targets, then switching back to the District will not allow you to change the destination tile for that District.

    Honestly, I've found this easy to abuse: produce most of a powerful unit in several of my cities, but leave it incomplete; when I get surprise-war'd, drop a collection of invisible powerful units on them in a single turn … also, it's amazing with the Venetian Armory wonder — I “held back” basically an entire era's worth of production, and suddenly popped a fleet of 12 Caravels and Privateers. :P – ELLIOTTCABLE Oct 23 '16 at 23:47

    I'm not sure if it's a UI bug, but production might carry over. I've had times where I complete something, start the next item, and it takes one or two turns less than indicated in the build menu. I always assumed this was carry-over production, but can't confirm. – Ethan Oct 24 '16 at 17:53

  • I just saw on Twitch someone using a production queue - is it a mod? – niico Nov 19 '16 at 21:25
  • Has this been added with the patch 1.0.1 - if so how do you use it? – niico Dec 2 '16 at 4:28

There is no show queue in Civ, which makes me sad because I abused that feature in Civ V.

However, just like Civ 5, you won't lose the production you put into things, and Civ 6 actually SHOWS this a bit better by showing a progress bar on things you'd previously started.
