I'm finding when to build the FP a really difficult decision! I guess this is something everyone probably faces in certain games? It seems to come down to: Should I build it now, even though it won't be very far from my capital, and might not have a huge effect on my cities? Or, should I wait until later, when I plan to go do some conquering, and I can put it up in a captured enemy capital (perhaps on another continent) and get some strong late game cities up and running quick? in my current game, it's now 1740 AD, the FP has been available for a long while, but I just can't make a decision... even though my empire is quite large, there aren't any perfect cities for it, but at the same time, the earlier I get it up, the more savings it will accrue. so, even if they are small, it might be greater savings than waiting for the perfect city to possibly become available later due to warring. also, another thing that will affect my decision is, What is the range of the FP? How many tiles does it extend? (and I suppose the power decreases at a particular ratio, inversely proportional to the distance?) if you are interested, here is the empire I'm dealing with (I am Rome, in Purple): Top (Rome in bottom right)- Middle - Bottom (Rome just OOS to the North) - (I also have some island cities off in the Western Ocean (is 3 screenshots the limit per post?) anyone see any places they would put the FP? but in general, how do you feel about the FP? do you put it up early, and feel that smaller savings over a longer period are more beneficial? or do you wait until you do some conquering and you have the perfect city that's far away and will really save a lot? of course, there are surely some great games where you find the ideal location early, but I think we can take that for granted.
