If you realize how big it was, given the tecnology of the time,

That's good idea. The point here is that this is a game balancing feature that has little to do with realism.

BTW, I've never (seriosly) played at CivII. I'm told that unhappiness
penalty applies only to newer cities when you go over a certain number.

That is correct. I haven't made the change because it gets a bit messy, and I wasn't sure if it would be worth the trouble since nobody seems to like the idea to begin with. I would do it if it has a reasonable chance of being accepted. Together with improved handling of corruption, it should be enough to stop ICS without being overly restrictive.

I'll drop this discussion until I come up with some results and useful patches. As a Linuxer, I like coding more that talking... B-)

It was a good discussion, and you have made many good points.
Now that people seem to be more receptive to the idea, I probably should modify the code to something closer to Civ2 behavior (without the loophole, of course).
