Starting condition: I know how small cities form. It is mostly a trade center that requires an access to water and food. But some cities have more than 100 000+ people.
Angkor, Cambodia had apparently more than 1 million people. How is it possible for cities to grow so big? Is it just because they have access to more food?
- Climate: It is located under a subtropical or tropical climate according to this classification. Mostly: Af, Am, Aw/As, Cfa, Cwa and Cwb.
- Technology level: European middle age (late middle age to be more precise)
- Magic does not play an important role.
Result: A big city with several thousand people: 50 000-100 000 +
Process: How can I achieve a high population?
Since hot and humid climates receive more rain and can produce more food, is it a good assumption to say that large cities are more likely to form here than elsewhere ?
