It looks more like there is a set area which receives certain kinds of resources.

I don't think so, otherwise how would you conquer planets diplomatically (dimplmotaciallly  was my first guess at spelling that :P) or economically? It seems like they'd fluctuate

I like the borders. Maxis, if you're listening, put the borders on the map!

No, I meant that they probably have at least one specific resource, or amount of resources. I didn't mean that they always had the same amount, or the same resources every time.

Oh that would make sense. So you're saying that it starts out with the same amount of resources, but as your culture goes up, so do your resources?

I think it's probably going to be a random amount of resources, but with limits at both extremes. Maybe with just enough that you can survive, but low enough that you should interact with other cities.

I wonder how the areas are divided, though. Does every part of the world have a city that owns it, or can you declare parts which are not claimed for yourself? Also, note that you can't own anything that is not land.

Well, they're probably declared by a radius around buildings you have that belong to your city, mixed up with the radius of your city itself, etc.

Also, I think that if you own a planet, you probably own the area around it.

In that picture it shows the boundaries going to only the ocean.

Did anyone else notice that they outline the boundaries of a nation? At least it looks like it.


I did. I thought it was already talked about though.

I found another report of the Leipzig demo: on Ten Ton Hammer.

Nothing new, except maybe for confirmation of this:
[...] The tribal phase begins with the customization of your own hut and very small village. [...]

and the reassuring fact that:
[...] Right now they are focusing on launching the game before they even think about anything else. [...]
