Re: Visibility affected by Terrain

Lol, I see what you mean about the auto-explore, but personally I never use that option anyway. I would think it would ideally be set up so that the current default view range for most ground units would be the bare minimum after the application of penalties. And some if not all ground units would h...

Re: Visibility affected by Terrain

Oh, I see the distinction. I think it would be an interesting mechanic, though for the terrain of surrounding tiles (not the tile the unit is standing on) to affect visibility in a significant way, the default view range would have to be extended beyond the current default of directly adjacent tiles...

Re: More than one city field for larger cities

Hey everyone. I think the merging idea is a bit too complicated to implement, but I fully support the idea of larger urban areas (though this should be controlled with a max size of about 9 tiles). It's always bothered me that a size 2 village takes up the same amount of space as a size 12 city, and...
