But then the result would look like this:

Field on shore

Yes, but water at the coast is very shallow, everyone can walk through it without sinking face-wink.png

Well, Wheat doesn't grow well in shallow waters, as does not barley. So the idea is to treat all tribes the same. By this atlanteans would loose a light advantage by loosing the shore and the other tribes would gain some spots if buildings were placed to close.
Should be no big deal even on fjords or on archipielago sea as otherwise they would only be playable with atlanteans only which is not the case I believe

It would make a nice idea to have a tribe that plants rice though which needs exactly a spot on the shore

It isn't, I played those maps many times with barbarians and had no problems whatsoever.

It would be indeed.

So as this thread diverted from the original question. I propose to implement the solution that Nordfriese suggested. (using maxcaps allowing to plant between buildings but not at the shore) this would improve the current situation for all tribes except atlanteans and only worsen atlanteans capabilites as they can't plant at shores anymore.
Any objections?

+1 from me too, let's try the maxcaps solution.

Atlanteans cannot plant fields at the shore anymore? Well, whatever : (

But now barbarian farmers require one additional field face-wink.png
