Behold, The Mother Of All Civilization VI Canals

I’ve written before about how canals are very much a thing in Civilization, but the latest expansion for Civilization VI kicks this up to a whole new level.

Anony_Person found a spot where they could combine both, and the result is something beautiful.

That’s seven tiles spanning a continent, with the Panama Canal wonder in the middle, and individual canals linking the cities to the coast. It’s glorious to behold, even more so when you see that the canal lands right on the continent name.

Of course, Civ fans being Civ fans, as impressive as this is today I expect to be updating this post in 12 months time with a 17-tile monstrosity that lets battleships cross the map at the speed of light.
