I was thinking of playing 1700AD UMERICA FUXX YEAH sometime. I usually play heir-difficulty + editor cheaty game before regent-difficulty UHV victory run, to learn the situations So... I really have no idea where to build my cities on those desert tiles. Especially, 2tiles: silver 3E to Seatle, and copper between Los Angelos and Denver Maybe Salt Lake City on the stone, and El Paso 2N2E to Hermosillo (Spanish Colony 1S to the gold)? * I focused more on 'Settler value' over city performance, but there was no particularly high spots on those deserts. AND, I have no special knowledge about US history or geography. Any recommendation considering either city performance or historical name-value will be of great help to me.
