As I got seriously bored of just spamming TP everywhere, I've started tentatively trying out some of the other tile improvement. Was just wondering how people on here prefer to use the land they've got. Personally I find that farms by rivers are becomming a bit of a necessity for me, no matter what the hex is (be it a hill, plains, grassland etc.). I'm still hitting the TP other areas. Tried a few mines on hills but still can't shake the feeling that they're just not good enough. Same goes for the lumbermill as well. Are mines and lumbermills as useless as they seem? Or am I just missing something? Any opinions? p.s. becoming more satisfied with Civ 5 the more I play it.
