    This is a Dom Pedro II request: terrace farming for Inca. Also, a good one for some industrial/modern farming tech or a substitution for wine icon.

    Unfortunately, as far as I know, hill's don't have their own separate irrigation terrain... :(

    Keep it as a hills-only bonus resource that produces mucho food, but make it appear only upon the discovery of Terrace Farming. Problem solved. Of course this works best on scenarios that use an Earth map, since you can pre-place them liberally along the Andes and in Southeast Asia...

    How widespread was/is terrace farming in Southeast Asia, and were any Civs as dependent upon it as the Incas?

    Thanks,

    Quite widespread. Even the provinces at the southwest of China (Yunnan, Szechuan, Guizhou) had plenty of them. And of course, my native Philippines also had the Banawe terraces. Seems everywhere there's hilly terrain people made use of these.

    No Southeast Asian civs that dependent on them as the Incas though. Terrace farming here serves as a supplement only. There's still plenty of level ground around.

    There may be plenty of level ground in China, but 70% of Japan is rugged, mountainous terrain (in many cases, the mountains don't stop until you hit the ocean on either side), so terrace farmin was, and still is, a major source of food production in Japan. Well, that and aquaculture.

    Oh. I wasn't talking about either China or Japan,but about Southeast Asia. :)

    Thanks for supplying information about Japan though. I go now to edit once again the Japanese isles on my map. :D

    In that case, put more of the terraces in the southern part of Honshu (the big Island), Shikoku (smallest island), and Kyushu (the southernmost Island), and none in Hokkaido (the northernmost island). Don't laugh, but Hokkaido looks a lot like Pennsylvania or Ohio, with rolling hills, red barns, alfalfa fields and cow pastures. Hokkaido's main industry is dairy farming (so, I don't know, maybe you could add some extra cattle to the island)

    But how do you turn a rice paddi into a terrace farm? Either way, this is a 'hills only' bonus resource I guess.

    When I think rice paddy, the word "hill" does not come to mind. I thought rice was grown in more marshy areas... at least that's what a rice paddy looks like to me.

    My point exactly. Paddis are always level ground, atleast all the ones I have seen are. Maybe they use terraced fields for tea like in Srilanka?

    Well my second picture clearly shows the paddies on a slope. The paddy itself might be level, but is exactly what a terrace is. It's levels cut into the side of a slope.
