Isn't this the 'production waste' that Civ II apparently has?

Reinier (who doesn't know Civ II well)

From : Robaire (who knows Civ II really well)

Sorry, Reinier, but not quite.

In Civ2, Waste is strictly a function of government type (of course!)
and of distance from the capital, up to a maximum distance.

Waste is computed only on excess shields
i.e. what's left after unit support has been deducted.

Higher government types have less corruption and waste
(none under Democracy and Communism -
that must really bug the proponents of realism...)

Roads, railrods and courthouses reduce both.

Corruption is similar to waste except that the maximum distance
is greater -probably because two trade units equate to 1 shield.
