EC3 New Idea #38 - Realistic Effects of Latittude

</font>How about realistic effects of latittude and elevation on food production(extremes of tempurature, growing season, ect.), population and such?
-near the poles is pretty unlivible
-near the equator is slightly harsh-heat, sun, rain(floods more likely maybe)
-high elevation has low pressure, cold,etc

At the very least there should be areas where you just cant build or gather resources from(You can't put New York on Mt Everest!!!)

First of all, the idea of not being able to build cities everywhere has already been implemented in SMAC (you can't build bases in rocky squares). I think that Firaxis will also include it in Civ3.

Meanwhile the idea of different lattitude effects could become kind of unfair, don't you think? I mean if your civ gets randomly seeded near one of the poles, youre pretty much screwed in the game from the very beginning.
