Can only create one city in colonization WTP


Jan 2, 2023
I've played Colonization for several years through TAC RARand early WTP, with no real problems, however now I can't create more than one city when playing WTP.

In the normal game either the latest steam version or the beta version I have no problem, but when I try to play WTP ( the last three versions ) with either of the two colonization games, It will only allow me to build one city. I usually play on the first three difficulty levels as I'm looking to relax not stretch my brain.

In the original game there is a one city option but I make sure that is not ticked.

Is there any restriction on when you can found a secon city?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This question is very easily answered. :)

To settle Cities in WTP you now need to equip a Colonist in "Profession Settler".
You can not just use any unequipped Colonist anymore as in old versions of the mod.

Simply read Colopedia considering "Profession Settler". :thumbsup:
It will also show you which Yields are required to equip it.

By the way:
Next time ask WTP specific questions in the WTP forum, e.g. here:
