Water Dump Irrigation is Better Than Irrigation Tower


Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is old news, the search function isn't working for me.

So I just did a little experiment with irrigation techniques. The Irrigation Tower will irrigate 10 tiles away from itself, requires almost constant attention, and a lot of water. Rivers irrigate like 16 or 17 tiles away just by existing. So here was my thought, can I blow a single tile with dynamite, construct a water dump to fill it, irrigating the same distance as a river, and leave it alone? Yes, I can. The water does eventually evaporate away, but it takes days. This seems to be a better method of irrigating land.

I did this too. And can concur with OP about the fact that it makes the irrigation tower redundant.


Edit: even before dynamite, used Levees to contain a block of water.

ohhh, that idea of the Levees is really good!!! 
As on early game you usually don't have Dynamite xD
Thank you

This was fixed, but the update today reverted to a previous version of the irrigation tower lasting only 24 hrs on a full tank (i.e.48 water) as opposed to the revised 240 hrs (10 days). 

Please fix! Thanks!
