Doesn't the banner on the ship already signify that?

It would be great to have to make your own boats and have a change of mechanics for sailing such as getting rid of 'moving at the slowest units speed' in the water because that doesn't really apply on a boat since we aren't actually marching together they are riding a boat :P

No troop ships?
Be nice to load troops on to ships to speed them long distances.

Just a thought

I can see the sea ships on the map, but when my units cross the river next to my towns there's just a sword/caravan/trumpet Unhappy

Yes, it does, but I personally believe that coloring the sails would not only make it easier to see but also would allow the diplomatic and military ships to be the same size as the trade ships, because they wouldn't be confined to the boundary of the already standard sized army/diplo banner.

Excellent overall, but why is the first one a boot with lampshades on? Maybe a nice decorative piece for the coffee table? * Getting out her empty toilet roll, sticky back plastic and glue, and trying to make her own...

LOL

Do gathering units ride ships too, or do they still swim?

First forum post...  Can a wind direction determine speed of the ships?  Will there be ocean/water NPCs to hunt?  Ocean/water resources to gather?  So much future promise and I'm just a newbie trying to wrap my head around what is already available!
