One of the differences between Civ2 & Civ3 was supposed to be that when you captured a city with only one population point, it didn't automatically destroy the city like it did in Civ2 (something that annoyed me). That was great until I installed the last patch. Now it sometimes doesn't give me a choice. Is there a way with CivEdit that I can change the option so that I always get a choice?

I don't think that an option exists for changing this. I noticed the same issues after installing the patch as well, but I have never concerned myself enough with this to question it.


Off note but concerning cities. . .the thing that trully bugs me is the fact that once a city reaches size 12 and higher I think that the workable land area for the city should increase by at least one more square. In a recent game I have some 10 or so cities that are maintaining a size 28-30 population and 50% or more of them are entertainers, tax collectors, and scientists.

You can still capture a size one city if that city has ever produced any culture points. I have seen this many times where the city was larger but the AI had burned population rushing defenders till the pop was down to one. In those cases I still had the option of keeping the city or razing it. I keep these cites all the time because with on pop there is almost no chance for a culture flip after the city grows a little bit.

Unless another city is nearby and stealing squares a city has twenty squares for the population to work. So up to twenty population is ok.

So what is wrong with this, I like free happy faces, gold, and beakers.

one small hickup here: if the civ you take the city from hasn`t produced culture there (e.g. they take my 10000 culture city, get it down to 1 pop, I take it back) - it`s gone!!!!!
