    Pollution on water?
    Interestingly, but on earlier versions of EXE these tiles shown as unexplored.
    And it's only visible when entering city.

    I'm pretty sure this is the 'seam' of the world, where the map wraps around to form the illusion of a globe. It's a column a couple of squares wide where there can be only ocean. The squares in that column are also unworkable and give that pollution/unhappiness effect in the city view. In randomly generated maps that column is never accessible by a city site, but the Earth map has some oddities that do not appear in random worlds, like diagonally connected ocean and/or land tiles. Is this the stock Earth map or a modded one? I haven't played Earth in decades and don't remember Australia being like this.

    Yeah, this is the stock Earth map. East coast of Australia.
