Ok so i'm playing on earth map and has been stuck at a continent for too long. 3 Cities on that piece of land but anyway now i'm going for my 4th which is on a pretty good island.
I'm not sure how you guys define good but for me luxury resource is the main thing I look for as more happiness = more of everything. I can even invade others still have enough happiness after I annex his city. So I found a pretty good island :
Look at the screen shot below, my trebuchet is located at the point where it can reach the most luxury resource however it is land based. As moroccan, i'm not sure if I should get a sea side city for trading. So assuming if I place my city next to sea, then I could probably have 2 cities in this island instead of 1 in the middle .
Suggestion? Btw i'm playing for scientific victory. (and i'm still new)
Edit: Is it also ok to place a main city in the middle for reaching the most possible resouce then later have a small city by the sea just for trades then I can just allow it to grow til lI can reach the truffles resouce then stop growing that city.
