    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Load the save provided http://forums.civfanatics.com/uploa...40_BUG_TRADE_ROUTE_NO_SAIL.CivBeyondSwordSave
    2. Build city with settler
    3. End turn

    Observation: Popup informing first city connected. Further city screens indicate trade routes. Note also lack of Sailing tech. or roads.

    Expectation: No trade route until either Sailing is researched or a road is built between the two cities.

    This was in Epic Game/Marathon with only 'Choose Religion' and 'Permanent Alliances' non standard game options selected.

    Without looking, was the river route entirely within your cultural boundary? I believe that sailing is only required for river routes and coastal routes that are outside your cultural boundaries.
