Better Coastal Cities and Water Tiles

In Civ 6, water tiles provide lackluster yields. Coastal cities typically have less food and production than inland cities, making it difficult for them to grow. This mod alters the Harbor district and its buildings to improve water tiles and make coastal cities better. I took heavy inspiration from TheCrazyScotsman's water improvement mod on CivFanatics and Napstablook's Fish Farms mod here on Steam. While both of those mods are great, I thought I would offer up a third alternative. In comparison to those two mods, mine has a bit more focus on adding production and doesn't make quite as many changes to other aspects of the game.

Mod Effects
- The City Center now has adjacency bonuses for coastal tiles:
+1 food for each adj. coastal tile at Sailing
+1 production for each adj. coastal tile at Shipbuilding
+1 gold for each adj. coastal tile at Cartography.

- Harbors now give +1 food to all water tiles owned by a city.

- Harbor Citizen Yield is now +1 food, +1 gold, and +1 production per citizen working (previously +2 gold, +1 science).

- Shipyards now grant +1 housing, +2 food , and +1 gold (previously nothing).

- Shipyards also provide +1 production to fishing boats.

- Seaports now add +1 food to fishing boats and +2 gold to all water tiles owned by a city.

- Seaports now grant +1 production.

Looks like he pulled it or made it private. My first comment to him was firm but polite and he deleted it. Seems he had no intention of asking or giving credit.

Hey ITcore, thanks for letting me know. Unfortunately that's not the first time it's happened -- even with this mod specifically! The polite thing to do is to ask or at least give credit. Oh well.

Has a user named Ryan Cookie contacted you about permission to use part of this mod in his own? He has a portion of it in his upload Cherish .

And I will always make sure to update this mod as needed. First thing I do after every patch is make sure my mods work and adjust them if necessary :)
