From: Toronto and Lima
I started a game in which I had no neighboring cities, just a lot of territories, which I methodically engulfed
so I ended up with a big one-city state, everything was fine, everything in green.
But then I decided to create two new zones, so that I have less penalty for 2 mines I had outside 6 hex range of my city
In preparation I had sealed roads to each city, I upgraded the truck to level 3. I also set a supply base ~10 hexes from capital city
I also stockpiled colonists and stratagems
So for each new city hex, I built: domed farm, truck station, solar energy, mines.
These were all completed before setting the new zones
Then I set the new zones, I spent stratagems to get x3 zoos on each one + any fate stratagem that can be spared to get them a good start
clicked next turn, and then my economy which was on the green, is all in red, food deficits, energy deficits, etc
Question: is this because it will take them a few turns to settle down?
It seems to me that the administrative penalty is puny compared to the logistical constrains of having multiple cities
