Is it possible to (globally) slow down the pace of research and culture gain, without slowing production (as much)?

So I love long games of Civ. Epic is my usual “pace” chosen for play. However, every time I play, regardless of my settings — I never feel as if the world spends enough time in each given “age”. A common sequence of events, is I’ll discover a technology unlocking, say, a new military unit. […]

Do I need to rebuild a courthouse if I re-conquer a city I have captured in the past?

If I remember correctly, courthouses are always destroyed when a city is conquered. On the other hand, when a civ loses one of their cities and then conquers it again, it does not have to build a courthouse there. My question is, does a city become “mine” after building a courthouse, e.g. if I lose […]

How do I add mod support into Civilization 5 for Mac when I have MainMenu.xml instead of MainMenu.lua?

I’m trying to enable the mod button within the Steam version of Civilization 5 for Mac. When I navigate to: ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/sid meier’s civilization v/assets/UI/FrontEnd/MainMenu.lua I do not have MainMenu.lua like this answer suggests I should: instead I have MainMenu.xml which doesnt contain much in the way of text, and doesn’t contain the specific line […]

How can I disable battle cycling of other civs in Civilization 5?

This question has nothing to do with the actual “animations.” It more has to do with the camera pan during battle. In a multiplayer game, I’m stuck watching my friend’s battles. If during that sequence I click to do something for my turn, the camera immediately jumps back over to another battle. Likewise if we […]

Civilization 5 crashes often during play

Civilization 5 crashes repeatedly on my system. I can play for 10 minutes but then the system will crash. I am playing Civilization 5 gods and kings (from the Gold Edition / Steam install). Here is my system. Here is my dxdialog and other info: http://pastebin.com/kcT1xJKY And then my civ 5 configuration http://pastebin.com/7T8YbfHq http://steamcommunity.com/app/8930/discussions/1/666826166384694500/ I […]

Ruler of the Seas, how to do it?

How do I sink a million ships? Well, not a million, 357 for the achievement? What is a good setup? I set up a huge archipelago game with epic game length and raging barbarians… but ships still aren’t spawning very fast, and I imagine it’ll probably take 3-4 run-throughs to get the achievement. Any suggestions?

After buying the deluxe version of civ5 on Steam, where is the soundtrack?

I’ve checked the media tab on under Library and the purchase email doesn’t say anything about it.

How can I improve or work a resource that is more than three tiles from land?

I’m playing Civ 5 for the first time, in the “learn as you play” tutorial. How can I improve or work resources that are at sea, far from any city? As an example I found the natural wonder Krakatoa, and the popup text says that there is an extra bonus if it is worked. How […]

What are the rules for territory ownership when you raze a city?

If I raze a conquered city its territory returns to neutral ownership. However suppose I have multiple cities clustered together, it is not always possible to know which tiles I will lose when razing a city. Since I am a relatively peaceful player I have not had the chance to experiment with this game mechanic. […]

Is there any way to 'turn off' science and convert it into something else?

I am late on in a game and don’t need science any more (as I have researched everything). Is there any way to ‘turn off’ science and convert it into something else e.g. Gold, Culture or Production. For example is there any way I can sell my science buildings (such as University, Public School etc) […]
