  • Whales

    Is anybody of you aware that we consider hunting down whales one of the greatest things that can happen to your cities?

    They are worth much effort. They will many times dictate where I build a city. But accomplishing a sustained yield harvest over 6,000 years! now thats a challenge!!!!

        It's rumored that the whales are hunting the humans and are the cause of the sinking Trireme Syndrome.

              Well, games aren't perfect, I prefer corn over whales though--More food to grow on.

                But no extra trade from it. Give me a four whale pattern and I'm in heaven.

                  Ming i agree ..... whales rock and are IMO the best first square resource in the early game , maybe for every cities first square... not excluding the city one of course

                  Sire there is a city on a mountain up ahead..... its loaded with troops and a fort, what should we do???

                  Calm down son..... i have a tactical nuke right here for that civ cheater who put his city on a mountain.

                    Ming, I've searched the world over many many times looking for the elusive Quatro-Whale city location... The best I've found yet is 3 whales. Must the 4 be on a very small island, or skinny peninsula? How could the 4 whale pattern be found on a continental costal city?

                      Whales often appear in lakes and inland seas.

                        Go to the big world map. Ellesmere Island in the Northwest Territories of Canada often has four whales.

                            In Homer Simpson Style,

                            More Drooooolllll.

                            Always a primo city location. No sucker can camp on the whale to piss you off.

                              yes i like coast for that reason...... i figure the extra trade in coastal cities is well worth the risk of dips stealing my tech.... usually it works out ok and your laughing if your inland cities are by lakes where the whales are bountifull
