This patch does it too.


Should we do something about Swamp/Spices too?

README.ruleset_civ2civ3 says:

And indeed, the Spice food bonus is reduced by 1 compared to the classic
ruleset. But this isn't the same situation, it's not masking an automatic
bonus elsewhere. Rather, to get the classic bonus you have to irrigate.

Was that the intention? For now I've tweaked the README as if it was, but if
something else was intended maybe we can use a Resource nreq.
