    Maybe a bug, maybe intentional : oil resource appeared on an ocean square ( as opposed to coast )

    In addition, with no improvements on that square, the program shows +1 hammer, and that is just too strange, oil under the ocean just giving more production ?
    Oil on land - I have no problem with the +1 hammer there.

    --------------

    Spy : I wonder if spy not having any function in a barbarian city is intentional design or a bug. Would be nice to poison them :)

    the oil placement is intentional as is the :hammers: bonus - you get even more by building an oil platform there.
    the spy thing is intentional as well: you cannot build espionage points against barbarians so you cannot perform active or passive missions.

    Thank you for your answer
    I still find it strange to get +1 hammer with no platform in the middle of the ocean.
    Almost feels like we could put +1 gold in a desert with the explanation of "you may find a lost wallet in the desert" :)

    Probably some of the oil is fairly easily to get to, enough for a small production bonus, but the bulk needs more advanced drilling equipment to be able to use for military and transportation purposes and the like.

    Best wishes,
