Colony Cost

May 29, 2005
alright. I love the idea, I really do.

However, it ever so slightly bothers me when I expand my empire to another "continent" that's all of one water tile away, I get slammed with LOLCOLONYCOSTS and get my economy crippled.

Solution? Colony costs should ONLY come into play if the city in question is on another continent AND unreachable by coastal tiles. If I can go by coastal tiles to another landmass, then it shouldn't have colony costs.

I believe the colony system was implemented to represent things like Great Britain trying to administer the American colonies or France trying to administer its African colonies, not like America trying to administer Manhattan Island or Japan administering all its outlying islands.
