  • Stopping city spam

    Why not limit the number of cities you can found based on the amount of food you generate? The more food you generate, the more cities you can support. Each city requires more food than the previous one.

    Once connected to your trade network extra growth of your cities could even be centrally regulated by distributing any empire wide food surplus. This way you could specialize some cities as agricultural centers of your empire.

    And as food is a resource you have to produce yourself, your strategic choices would not be limited by where some luxury goods are located.

    I don't have a problem with a country having a lot of cities.

      Me neither. However, there needs to be a penalty for increasing numbers of cities. Now it is happiness but I woudl prefer it to be food...

        Why does there need to be a penalty?

        There's always been one, mind you. Until Civ 4, it was corruption, and I think, inefficeincy. You lost trade and production. Civ 3 was particularly nasty about that.

        In Civ 4, they charged you money.

        Now, it's happiness.

        But why is it necessary?

          To avoid forcing people in the more cities is always better strategy ?

              At least ICS was a strategic issue and actually needed to be limited.
              The same can't be said of road spam. So it looked crappy. WHO CARES? Change the graphic so it wouldn't look crappy. Don't charge maint on roads. Especially after going to 1up which changed all the mechanics and made having more roads be more desirable. It was stupid stuff like that, which made me go back to IV. Eventually I know I'll try V again, but from what I'm reading, eventually hasn't arrived yet.
