    On to GeoModder
    I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

    What's the toroidal wrap thing for maps? Haven't come to testing it yet.

    You can go off the left of the map and come on the right (and vice versa) as per normal.........

    ....... but you can also go off the top and come on the bottom too (and vice versa)

    Result = nowhere to hide
    Let your every day be full of joy, love the child that holds your hand, let your wife delight in your embrace, for these alone are the concerns of humanity.

    Ouch... then I have to put out extra sentries for barbs and other malcontents if I happen to live near the top -or bottom of the map.

    Just the same as if you were in the middle. This way there are no safe corner spots to hide in!!

    Aggressive AI and raging barbs!!! - I did say it was going to get messy

    On to CM.

    At this point I will admit to a bit of experience of Highlands maps as I am playing one in a vanilla PBEM. So the near total absence of resources within the radius of my capital is no surprise (and of course there are no seafood resources at all). Now to see if Mehmed's extra health and commerce pays off (assuming the barbs or someone don't get me first).
    Never give an AI an even break.

    Freshwater lakes AFAIK. They give 2 food and 2 commerce without lighthouses. No fish, crabs, shellfish or whales. No lighthouses, harbours or drydocks. No Colossus or Great Lighthouse. It is still necessary to research fishing and sailing at some point as they are prerequisites for techs you do need (calendar IIRC).

    So 3 fewer health resources (there don't seem to be more of other resources to compensate so the map will look a bit bare) and no harbours to double the effect of the seafood ones. No extra trade route from harbours either. Trade networks are slower to develop unless another civ also has a city connected to a lake or river that you are connected to.

    As this game is on Noble it's not a massive problem, just that health and commerce are a bit harder to come by.
