    I don't know, but I can't say I'm on the edge of my seat to find out.

    Ironically, I just noticed that the icon for food has been Corn all this time. :D

    It might be part of the Apocalypse game mode. At some point, you need to appease the gods or surfer the consequences.

    How much corn could a corn farm farm if a corn farm could farm corn?

    Somebody asked what about Maya and Aqueduct. Assuming the showcase showed gameplay from someone who actually knew how it works, there's hella ton of Aqueducts at 1:20. However they are Moutains-sourced. Either the other cities would feel like wasting good Farm, or they can get bonus Housing from Aquaducted non-Rivers or something.

    Is this a dev thing that the whole world is revealed in this video? Or may it be part of some new game mode settings?

    You can have it too If you allow debug console and type reveal all

    Yo Eagle, there's part of video where the cursor flies over the American Farm-Improvable and tooltip appears at resolution lower than Netherlands. If you have actual eagle eyes here you go, the most res tooltip of it I could get :D
    It doesn't look like that, bete there IS the tooltip

    Mayan cities don't get a Housing bonus from adjacency to fresh water, so getting the bonus from Aqueducts could be a big deal. Especially if you get the larger bonus for not being near fresh water.

    The video said they can't get housing from fresh water and coastal tiles. Those are different bonus than you would get from Aquaducts. I take from this that building an aquaduct, both by a river or by a mountain, would give you the normal housing you would get from an aquaduct in that case, just like with any other Civ.

    @AriochIV You ninja you...

    I think they're an extremely important resource that was not implemented yet because it doesn't mesh well with the current systems. Rubber would be a strategic resource first, I believe, and most strategic resources just spawn from any tile. Rubber has to spawn on a rainforest tile first, which would make its implementation difficult. I THINK. Take it with a grain of salt.

    Actually, I believe the song lyric goes:

    "As corny as Kansas in August . . ."

    Nebraska is only for corn husking, not corn growing: the one time I was in the state all I saw were wheat fields . . .

    The east half of the state is corn, the west half of the state are the critters they feed the corn to.

    Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa all argue about who really identifies with corn, has the best corn, etc.

    I think that's to ensure playing England will mean getting struck by disasters.
    @Victoria may explain this further.. :yup:

    It's not going to happen, but I would really love if strategic resources were more tied to biome, and thus creating a bigger emphasis on trade or colonies if wanted to maintain a state of the art military.

    Well Nebraska is the "Cornhusker" state if we want to end that discussion...not that I care which one really identifies with corn to begin with.

    I think we got potatoes to Sweden thanks to returning soldiers from the Thirty Years' War. Then Charles XII is credited for putting cabbage rolls (dolma) on our plates; But what really made potatoes popular up here was Eva Ekeblad 's discoveries of how to make flour and alcohol out of them..
    Spoiler Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences :
    ..and then Eva Ekeblad became the first woman elected to Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
