The basic Road functions like it does in Civilization V: it costs 1 Energy Energy maintenance per tile, and gives a city connection bonus. The road visually looks more high-tech if it connects one of the player's cities to his/her capital city.


  • Halves the movement cost of a tile.
  • Building a road on a hill or forest tile neutralizes the movement penalty for those tiles.
  • Connect cities to capitals for energy bonuses (+1 Energy Energy for every 1Population Population of non-capital city city).
