    What in the actual hell is this and why would they do this? I just finished playing Indonesia thinking the same thing - how the hell do I actually play this location? But then, I realized that Indonesia's starting location is actually massively overpowered considering their unique improvement. Tamar however is completely devoid of any benefit from volcanoes - which as far as I can tell their dormancy is entirely RNG based.

    So what am I missing here? Is part of the challenge just missing out on 3 turns to move to a decent location? Is a massive migration of settlers away from a hellish volcano wasteland based on some foundation story of Georgia I'm unaware of?

    Do you mean on TSL Huge Earth?
    Indonesia on TSL Earth is pretty bad.

    If you like the idea of playing TSL I recommend looking at some of the TSL mods in the Steam workshop. (Or on here - CFC downloads).
    Many of the TSL mods are of better quality than even the ones Firaxis ships.

    Have you tried YnAEMP?

    I will plug my own TSL Earth map pack -> UN Earth Pack with TSL [RF+GS+NFP] | CivFanatics Forums.

    What do you think of this start for Georgia? :)

    You have two options, as you said, you could move a bit further away, lowering the risk of volcanic destruction. The other option is to settle right away, gaining a couple turns, but you'd have a higher chance of eruptions. However, the surrounding tiles to NW are very good and it can be worth it to move there anyway. Those volcanos will erupt and raise yields around them, which will benefit you in the long term, if settled a bit further away. You can combine this with Liang's promotion, which negates damage to districts and buildings.

    -edit- And from the POV of realism, Georgia lies on a volcanic area and has multiple volcanic mountains nearby.

    Saw that as well on the TSL Med map. Along with many of the other starts on this much-anticipated map, once again, they demonstrate they just don't do maps very well at all.

    I would be more concerned with the city-state about to steal your land.

    Edit - Wait, is that the edge of the map? Wow, that start really does suck.

    Even more hilarious is that it traveled and swiped the best 2nd city location. Also it is Yerevan (really useful Suzerain bonus for religious units) so you're way better off letting them live.

    From Wikipedia, only Mount Kazbek is located in Georgia in real life, so this is really strange.
