Hi. I'm baffled about the Game Speed setting. The manual is completely vague and confusing as to what it does. First it says this:
Finally, you can set the game speed on this page. This setting
determines how many game-turns it takes to construct buildings and
units, how much cargo units can transport, how fast you accrue wealth,
and so forth.
This makes it sound as if it just makes things take longer, leaving the number of turns until the end of the game the same (300). But then, later on, it says:
At Standard game speed, a game of Colonization can last a maximum of 300 turns, ending in the year 1792.
This implies that higher (i.e. longer) settings make the game last more than 300 turns. So which is it? What the heck does that setting do, exactly?
