I have my eyes on a luxury resource on neutral territory, very far away from my cities, behind the territories of other civilizations.
But I don't want to settle a city there because of the effects on social policy costs.
My plan is to send over a Great Artist to Culture Bomb the place, a worker to improve the tile, and some security units. I'm willing to take the security risk.
Can the plan work? Can one culture-bomb far from one's territory? Does an improved tile far from my roads and cities make the resource available to me?
