    In the Civ4Col mod Religion and Revolution, water tiles have weather, which changes every turn. (not every water tile has weather, only a few in each area do)

    The three types of weather are
    1. Favorable wind - movement takes only half a movement point
    2. Unfavorable wind - movement takes two movement points
    3. Storm - movement takes even more movement points, and 25% damage to your ship

    Why am I suggesting this?

    1. Naval weather has significantly shaped history, and it would be nice to have it in the mod.
    2. A bigger map means more large stretches of ocean, and this idea would make oceans more interesting and less predictable - this also adds to replayability
    3. The graphics already exist, and look nice

    I also think importing Civ4Col's water graphics would be nice, but apparently that's impossible because they use different graphics engines.

    One DOC turn lasts at least one year. At the Age of Sail - 10/5/3 years. Weather? What weather?
    With this scale even directed streams and prevailing winds doesn't make much sense: e.g.: Gulf Stream reduces time of Age of Sail travel from America to Europe by two weeks - and that is less than a percent from five years-turn.

    It's not realistic to have it take a decade to go from Hamburg to Amsterdam either, what's your point?

    It is not realistic even to have square borders of countries, man!))

    Your Battleship has just gone through a STORM!!!!

    Ummm... ok....

    Your Battleship has just experienced sunny days!

    That's nice...

    Your Battleship is feeling a little depressed because of another episode of rain.

    Are you serious?!...

    I think the idea is for pre-combustion engine ships.
