There is one thing I miss from Civ IV, and that is the colony thing. Although I think to form a colony in IV the city/cities had to be on a separate continent. I remember in a Civ IV game I didn't have a resource I needed, but there was some on a small unclaimed island. I sent over a settler, made a city, turned it into a colony so I could get the resource without the negatives of an extra city to maintain.

I'm in a similar situation in my current Civ V G&K game. I just researched iron working which reveals iron on the map. As my luck goes, there is no iron in my borders. There is one source two blocks outside the border of my capitol, but it's too far out to buy the tiles and I don't think the borders will expand any farther. I want that iron, but it's in a shitty location and not worth putting a city there just to get it.

Generate a great general and have him lay down a fortress, it will capture the tile you put it on and a circle of tiles around it. And since you can put the fortress on a tile adjacent to your territory that's a 2 tiles wide expansion, just what you need That's how I capture my oil which always seems to spawn just slightly out of reach.
