    Hi, dont you hate when you have upgrade a unit but must wait another turn to move it? I found out that if you zoom on a city and right click on a unit and press upgrade they will upgrade and be able to use their turn!

    I call it the elor bug.

    How unfortunate :(

    I suspect the AI is not able to use this, so it is yet another exploit to add to the lists...

    I have not found this to be true. When I manually choose upgrade from the city screen, the little dot above the HP meter turns red.

    It will only work if you zoom to that city before you actually start the turn. So when your domestic adviser pops up & asks you what you wan't to build next you click the "zoom to city" button & then, say you have a city with enemy troops next to it, you can scroll through the cities until you come to the one you want you wan't to upgrade the unit in, and there you go, you can fortify or attack in that turn.
