Hey all, I've just started playing Civ IV and have just started my first game on Prince diff. I think I'm learning pretty quick, but this odd city production thing has me confused. I have a 3 population coastal town with tiles chosen to give me 8 food and 2 hammers. So as I understand it that's 6 food to feed the pop and 2 to grow with. And meanwhile the hammers should work on producing units. The odd thing occurs when I try to make a worker. I should be able to queue a worker being worked on with 2 hammers while the city continues to grow at 2 food a turn. However, when I start the worker, the city automatically switches growth to stagnant and uses the 2 extra food to give me one more production point. It doesn't do this when I make an archer, for example, but if I try to make a settler or worker, it stagnates my growth and goes all production. It seems none of the city management buttons can fix this weird behavior. Please any advice would help clear things up. Thanks a lot!
