I am playing as england in a Giant Earth Map with 31 nations, so the british island can hold like 4 cities, so placed 2 cities on Ireland, which is like 8 squares away, at size 1 they had a colony modifier of 4, which gave a bit of trouble, at size 2 they suddenly have colony modifier of 8 and 9, why so high for someone so close??? and now one of them is size 3 and its colony modifier is impressive 12??? 1) are there a max on the colony modifier? 2) what can be done to lower it? 3) due to size of giant earth map, will it end up with colony mod of 100, if half way around the world???? please advice me!!!
