    Anyone know what in the world this could be? The ground seems to indicate that there are flowers everywhere. Could it perhaps be an unworked Holy Site tile? Or maybe it's some sort of Flower resource.

    ^ I'd say Flower resource. What's puzzling is the flowers on the ground look different from the (I assume) flowers that are still standing.

    Also possible: honey

    Perfume is my best guess; I'd expect more obvious signs of bees if it were honey.

    I hope coffee is in as a luxury resource. It's one of the most lucrative luxury goods in the world in real life.

    My first thought was some kind of Japanese unique improvement. The cherry blossoms are kind of iconic, so maybe it's supposed to represent some kind of Shinto shrine?

    These are, of course, educated guesses.

    Fish


    Crab


    Copper


    Iron


    Horses


    Deer


    Pigs
    Notes: Looks like the pigs are on a marsh tile.</p>


    Stone


    Pearls


    Wheat


    (Sugar/Rice?)


    (Dye/Perfume?)


    (some kind of fruit)

    What you think is sugar could actually be rice fields.

    Those were strangely absent from Civ 5.

    I know, I know... sorry, they're just a bit non-distinct...

    I don't mind the graphics. I liked the cartooney style in cIV and it likely will be less taxing on systems which will allow them to have bigger worlds and larger empires.

    They do look like Civ Rev which is concerning but these are likely alpha screenshots, so wait and see.

    Could it be corn? I mean if you compare it with previous civs images then it looks more similar to corn than to either rice or sugar.

    It's not corn. The devs would not be able to resist putting some yellow in there if it were corn.

    It looks more like tall grass, so probably rice.
