Improved land costs 30% more than normal land
Improved land does not reduce citizens per square mile
Improved land still increases enviromental levels the same as normal land.
Improved land cannot be caputured, but i can be deystroyed in battle

How improved land is destroyed in battle

Nukes destroy 60% of all improved land
Soldiers can destroy 0.07 miles of improved land until 500 soldiers
Tanks can destroy 1 mile of improved land until 30 tanks
Bombers can destroy 0.1% of improved land until 30 bomber strength
Cruise missiles destroy land based on their tech, they destroy as much improved land as infra, reduced 20%


Forests- for each mile of forest you buy, soldier price deacreases -0.1% becasue of good source of wood to power factories to make uniforms, giving it a 30% cap on the decreasment
price decreases until you have 300 miles of forest.


Shorelines- for each mile of shore line you buy, citizen income increases 0.1% because of citizen capitolising off of it, giving it a 30% cap on income increase
income increases untill you have 300 miles of shore line


Rivers- for each mile of river you buy infra price goes down -0.05% because of a good source of hydropower to give your nation electricity, giving it a 17.5% cap on the infra decrease
price decreases until you have 350 miles of rivers

Mountains- for each mile of mountains you buy, citizen happiness increases 0.01 because of citizens hiking and playing in the mountains, giving it a +2 citizen happines cap
happiness increase until you have 200 miles of mountains

Good luck with it though.

No, this makes nearly no sence.

So.... Since I have a river... I don't have to pay that much for infa? The thing is though- You'd probably have to pay more because of structures that are needed to cross the river.

no because you can power lights better with water wheels, hydro power
forests decreases soldier price becasue of lots of wood to burn to power machines to make soldiers uniforms and such, shorelines increases income because of citizens paying taxes to go to the beach and mountains for happines because citizens can go and hike and play and such

Tune it some more maybe, but personally I have no use for it. All the land I have was pretty much stolen from other people so I'm only concerned with military benefits. :jihad:

Land includes all these things, at least in my view.

you are missing the point, you can use rivers for alternate powering, i just felt like adding a feature that would ggive a happines boost, having gems makes people happy, but gold doesnt?

you cant say that without looking at everything else, its a valid idea and people actually buy shorelines and forests, im not sure on mountains and rivers, they are just fillers.

Shoreline:
0,001% * 300 = 0,3%

yeah... suuuure that 0,3 percent increase to my citizen income would be HUGE, wouldnt it.

... can you feel the sarcasm...

Land is pointless after a while, as is this idea. Plus, I steal land when I raid, what kind would I steal?

Hey Ike, I think you've got an idea with great potential here! :J

I hate it when you throw out an idea with some of the basic concepts just to give people an idea of what you mean. Then all the nay sayers jump all over it as though it were your finished product; they can't see the concept and think beyond the basic idea. Keep up the good work! As for everyone else, if you don't like it, fine; but don't be part of the problem, be part of the solution. Make some productive comments and let's all work together to make CN a better, more interesting game.

Perhaps some tweaking along these lines (merely suggestions here): regardless of what type of "improved" land you buy, just have a standard raised cost %, say 20%.

Then increase the happiness benifit of each land type a bit and put a cap of say +2 happiness limit per type.

That's my 2 cents worth which you can take or leave, but either way, I think you've got a great idea.

You can buy mountain?

So when my geography teacher told me they where formed by tectonic plates running into each other, she was lying and instead governments go down to the local shop and say "I'll have 3 ridges and a couple of plateau's."

No, but I can feel the sunshine. [/reference that nobody will get]

Seriously, I don't like this idea due to the previously stated facts.

I think these powerthings are already included in infrastructure. This is failed idea, as land should already include everything you stated.
