Does it make sense to clone a question for a different version of a game? For example I saw What happens to the bonuses when I build a city in a special resource tile? and immediately wanted to know the answer to that with regards to Civ 4, so I asked What happens to a resource when I build a city on its tile?.

Is there anything wrong with doing this? It feels like cheating.

  • These are not different "versions", these are different games... and while certainly similar, many things do behave differently. – Oak Oct 9 '10 at 22:47

I don't see the problem in this case. Civ 4 and Civ 5 are distinct games with their own distinct rules and mechanics.

    @badp I'm with you on that. If I hadn't planted a city on top of a sheep 30 mins before I asked, I wouldn't have asked. – C. Ross Oct 10 '10 at 11:46

It might be better to first place a comment on the Civ 5 answer to ask if anyone knows if the same thing goes for Civ 4. If it doesn't or nobody answers, feel free to open a new question, since as @LessPop_Morefizz points out they are two very different games.

  • The advantage of this in a general sense is that it might turn out that one answer applies to multiple versions - the question could then be modified accordingly. – Dave DuPlantis Jun 14 '11 at 18:08
