    Yield represtents the amount of Food, Hammers and Commerce the terrain  type gives when worked unimproved. For Terrain Features the number given is the bonus / malus to the normal value. Health indicates any Health bonus/malus the terrain gives to nearby cities. Move means the (extra) movement cost for this terrain, while defense is the extra defense. Please note that these bonusses stack. So a hills with a forest has +2 move and +75% defense. And while a Floodplains is given as +3 food, you will always see them as 3 / 0 / 1 because they are always next to a river.

    The improvements listed are exhaustive. Improvements not listed can not be build. For the base terrain types, the resources listed are the ones that can be build without any terrain features. Special resources are not counted here. The specific improvement for a resource can always be built, no matter what the terrain type or terrain features.

    The occurances for terrain features are what you normally see in the game. Using the world editor it is possible to make other arrangements, such as floodplains on top of grassland-hills. The bonusses  / malusses given in this table should still be correct, you should just add them for each terrain feature. You will never see such arrangements in normal games though.

    • Civilization 4: Civilopedia introduction
      Martin Gühmann
      This section lists all known Civilizations and Leaders, Buildings, Wonders, Units, Promotions, Advances, Terrain Types, Improvements, Resources, and Civ4: Civics featured in Civilization IV. Most of the information in this section was taken directly from the ingame Civiliopedia. All information in this section has been updated for the latest version of the game, which is 1.61. Information on the warlords expansion is not included. There is (will be) a seperate Civilopedia for warlords. If you find any errors in the information presented here, please let us know. We have recently finished updating the Civilopedia. It should now be entirely up to date for the 1.61 patch. Our next project will be to write a seperate Civilopedia for the Warlords expansion. Last updated: November 30th, 2006...

This bonus is listed the 'Effect' column. In addition all luxury resources give +1 happiness, and all food resources +1 health, to every connected city in your civilization, if they are improved. Strategic resources are needed to build certain units, and speed up the production of some buildings and wonders. Their effect is listed. Yield is the extra amount of Food, Hammers & Commerce that improving the resource yields to the tile the resource is on. Under the name of each resource, the terrain types on which the resource can be found are given. These are for standard map settings, obviously on custom-designed maps or map scripts this can be different....
