    Ahhh...
    There are only like 25 plains areas in the entire game map (huge) and since I got Civ 3 Complete, it came with extra scenerios, and th eonly one I got that far on was Warlust, but basicly you cant go anywhere until you get navigation. ANyways, I cut down a lot of the threes and stuff, but still, oil only comes on marshes, plains, tundra and desert. Only plains is in the map Im on and there arent many. Is there a way I can increase the chance to get oil on on eof the few plains squares I have?

    Since the instruction manual said so it would be right...

    Advice - Ignore what your manual says, it isn't exactly known for its accuracy. I would trust people at CFC before I would the manual.

    There was oil on plains in vanilla (maybe in PTW). But not on plain obtained from forests.

    Even in vanilla it's only desert and tundra. No plains.
