I have a few questions about roads and improvements of sort. For one, do you need to connect things like farms and mines to your cities? I mean this in the basic sense, where the farms and mines aren't harvesting a resource. In that case, the roads obviously connect things like gems and wheat to your trade network. Second, If you were to build a farm say between two cities, but not in either's fat cross, does the bonus get lost? What about when you put a pasture on horses or pigs or something, does the tile bonus go anywhere? Or does the only benifit end up being horses and pigs on your trade network? Final thought. To get the improvement bonus from whale, does the ocean tile have to occur in the fat cross of the city?
