So I was playing a game last night where I was going for a Space Victory, toward the end of the game I went to war with Germany. After dropping the A-bomb on Hamburg and razing it to the ground I sent my workers in to clean up the mess. My conscience got the better of me. All that to brag and ask a question.

During clean up I notice there was a tile with like 10 food and 8 hammers where Hamburg once laid. If I built a new city next to it would I get those production values? Or would it reset when the new city was founded? Or is it just a graphical bug?

Note it did not seem like a graphical bug because hovering over it the tooltip said something like

City Square 10 Food 8 Production

    Sounds like a bug. Whether it is just visual or actually functional, sounds like you're in a great position to tell us! – bwarner Mar 7 '12 at 17:49
  • yes, please try it and tell us. that is what load and save should be for (not for changing history).... then add your own answer below. – Valamas Mar 7 '12 at 20:30

So I was able to reproduce it and sure enough the tile stayed after a city was built. But it seems to be unworkable.

Before: Where Hamburg use to be

  • so you've discovered a bug indeed – I.G. Pascual Mar 11 '12 at 3:38

    Are you able to use a worker to improve the tile to make it workable? – Valamas Mar 11 '12 at 21:24
