    Thanks Nomadic. Moats do indeed have a weak point. But I read that to prevent sappers walls sometimes had a strong foundation underground. A moat with water makes sapping almost impossible, but if it freezes the enemy can assault the walls with ladders, rams and towers. A dry moat prevents most of that. Choices, choices

    Well another quick update and I fear the last for today. Haven't made much progress and it looks like the map will still take a couple of days to finish. The CD3 gods are not very kind to me right now as the map crashes about 30 times an hour. I do think it's about 80% finished. I just need to place few hundred more farms. Ack!

    You could always clear off the ice and slick it down with a Zamboni then sit on the walls and laugh with your troops as the enemy force entertains you with a depiction of "The siege of Meerzicht on ice".

    If you put real effort into building the moat you should have at least 1-2m from the edge of the moat to the surface when filled. With a straight sides, that should make it somewhat useful even when frozen.

    Not all cities are located near rivers

    Where did you find the top picture? I'd love to see that in high res with all the numbers explained.
    What city btw?
