What can cause a City State to enter “permanent war” with a main Civ?

I know that capturing enough City States will eventually cause all the remaining city states to enter permanent war against you. So, what else can cause City States (either collectively or singularly) to enter a state of permanent war with against a main Civ? This question is triggered by a comment thread linked to my […]

How to get the Steam Workshop to work with “Civilization V” for a Mac?

I currently own Civilization V, (not the Gods & Kings expansion,) and have the latest version of it and have subscribed to several items on the Steam Workshop, but when I start-up the game, none of them appear to be in effect. I have enabled mods and can clearly see the MODS button on the […]

What bonuses do I get from the tile on which I place my city?

I’m trying to understand all the facets of city placement. One thing I can’t quite find, however, is if the specific terrain of the tile the city is built on has a significant effect. Does it make a difference if your city is on a hill, or in a forest, or next to a river? […]

How many cities should I build for a cultural victory?

In Civilization V, you attain a cultural victory by accumulating enough culture to purchase at least 36 social policies, and then building a wonder. The catch is that the more cities you build, the more culture you need to generate before you hit the next “plateau” of culture. What is the ideal number of cities […]
