It was time to found my first city, so I calmly built a settler and made my way south. Once at my location, I pressed "B" to give the age-old command to found city. But here's the catch, the city (or outpost as it's called in Beyond Earth) didn't get founded immediately. Each turn, a new hex joined the city's working radius until it finally was founded 6 turns in. This delayed founding of settlements can be used to my advantage in war, as an incomplete outpost isn't yet owned by its faction. That means you can attack them with impunity! File that one for future backstabbings.
