Ever since Civilization II, I've been wanting canals. Even though the subsequent games haven't yet offered the construction of canals, I have patiently built my civilization around its lack of them, and been waiting for the ability to construct them to finally arrive. Canals have been so pivotal to the development of civilization that there is no excuse to overlook them. If to build a canal will cost 250 gold per tile, I will happily pay for it. I promise that if players get to construct canals anywhere they'd like, then their economies are going to accelerate faster than they could without them. What have you heard about canals getting included into Civ V?
