Well, it was somewhat near a mountain range. Who knows. I'm opening the save game again now and see if its reproduceable. If it is, its uploaded. I will however comment on AI placements. They tend to build a lot of small settlements now. One to three in size, going deep into the heartland sometimes. I tend to prefer a few nicely producing settlements that spreads from an initial point, not random and having potential to piss the natives straight off. Nope.
