    Ok, I've removed Bulawayo, Ulundi, and Edinburgh from the wishlist, since they are Zulu/or Scottish cities now.

    It's funny that Batoche and Temuco are staying, despite those two being important Cree and Mapuche settlements, respectively (and neither are in their respective city list).

    Perhaps Tripoli can lower the cost of fleets and armadas (stacks with Spain's bonus) or can produce twice as many ships (stacks with the Venetian Arsenal for quadruple ships out of one city!).

    San Antonio, Tripoli, and Havana are already cities in the game for America, Arabia, and Spain respectfully for those that didn't know.

    Doing some of the Belgian ones

    Antwerp
    - Trade: Gain +3 gold on tiles with Luxuries and +1 gold from each trading post.
    Refs to Antwerp's position as THE central hub of diamond trade, as well as the founding myth (giant imposes tax on all merchants that pass. young guy comes over, slays the giant, cuts off his hand and throws it in the river. Hand Werpen => Antwerpen)

    Bastogne - Militaristic: Melee and recon class units gain +5 strength in woods and hills (+10 in wooded hills)
    The famous battle of the Ardennes was fought near Bastogne and the terrain there is all woods and hills, soooo...

    Bruges - Trade: Markets provide +1 production and gold from every Luxury the city has access to.
    Refers to Bruges's status as an important commercial centre, as well as the home of lace manufacturing. (cloth can be seen as a bonus resource)

    Charleroi - Industrial: Instantly gain +2 Coal, Nitre and Iron.
    Charleroi was an important mining town and crucial in establishing Belgium's industrial revolution.

    Ghent - Cultural: Holy Sites, Entertainment Complexes/Water Parks and Theatre Squares increase Domestic Tourism by 20% each
    Ghent is a beautiful city (almost as beautiful as Bruges), with a rich history and booming tourist industry.

    Leuven - Scientific: University costs halved. (including faith and gold)
    Leuven has one of the oldest universities in the world, established in 1425

    Liège - Religious: May build religious units with production.
    Liège has long since been its own Bishophoric and later became an important industrial city. Their Suze bonus marries both concepts ^__^


    Scherpenheuvel - Religious: Gain a free relic when completing a temple.
    An important place of pilgrimage in Flanders, renowned for its basilica.

    Spa - Cultural: Cities with an Entertainment Complex or Water Park have their food output increased by 30%
    This town gave its name to the health phenomenon. Nuff said.

    Tournai/Dornick - Cultural: All religious buildings provide +3 Culture and all Cultural buildings provide +3 faith.
    Important Frankish capital, well known for its Cathedral. Tournai is the current (French) name, though the city was historically known as Dornick in English.

    Firaxis added Bologna and Fez to the game, and you actually suggested those two to be Scientific! Someone there saw this thread....

    I suggested Fez to be scientific? Curious! I was advocating for it to be either religious or cultural after it was revealed :D

    Bologna is really a no brainer, however, and is (to my Eurocentric view) actually one of the first cities that come to mind when thinking about cities with a special connection towards science (right along with Oxford).

    Edit: ah, it was already a year ago. Stupid 2017 me, never liked that guy.
