    Cav - I get your point but I think Indian is right about this city.

    Settling on the gold gives us a greater final production capacity for the city (more grassland windmills). We also get +1 hammer from settling on a plains hill.

    Settling on the gold will also result in the city producing 3 gold (+1 in every city, +1 from gold, +1 from trait). While working the gold will produce a lot more gold it only generates that gold when we are actually working the tile. Settling on the gold is going to generate 3 gold (two more than the city normally would) every turn.

    Short term this is a bigger benefit as we will be working food tiles for the city to grow. Long term I am uncertain what the outcome is with respect to total commerce. But long term the location is certainly better for production.

    We can decide about city 9 soon, but this thread is about city 8! And it looks like we've decided so I'll mark it on the map

    We can whip our settler in 2 turns.

    Gold tile is 8 commerce and 3 hammers.

    By settling on the gold we gain 1 coastal tile, 2 ocean tiles and 1 grassland hill. That is 8 food, 8 commerce and 3 hammers (with windmill + 1 from city tile) + biggest income from trade routes because of bigger city + whipping better ability.


    I think this is a no brainer.

    This is the (remaining) suggested names list BTW:

    1. Kyzylorda
    2. Karagandy
    3. Chimkent (city 6 name suggestion / variation on Shymkent)
    4. Almaty

    Not sure how "Taraz" got in there... He's very sneaky, yes?:)
