    And so I'm new to Civ, and am unsure about how colonists work

    I build this unit to expand, but when I set up the new outpost I notice the "number of turns" for the outpost to grow by 1 pop goes up and down

    For example it may say 1 turn remaining for the pop to grow, but next turn it says 2 turns remaining. This goes on for about 20 more turns before the pop finally grows

    Is there anything I can do to speed it up?:lol:

    I think that counter is how many turns until the border grows. Your outpost turns into a city and goes up to population 1 (or more) after all 6 tiles surrounding the outpost are filled. You can speed that up by sending trade routes to the outpost. And Kavitha has a bonus as well.

    Don't allow the health of your civ to be negative.
    Certain virtues, e.g. homesteading, will speed the growth of an outpost
    Select the Kavithan Protectorate as your civ
    Select artists as the original colonists when setting up your game
    Send a trade route to your outpost, perhaps?
