Been playing Civ 2 forever, did not like Civ 3/4 at all. Just bought Civ 5 and boy has the game changed. Please list the question number with the answer (I am easy to confuse ). 1. If I build a tile improvement does that change (remove any production) from the tile (other than forest obviously). 2. Other than Happiness what are the negative effects for having lots of cities? Does a large Happiness number help? 3. How do you tell exactly what tiles are being used by a city (and not the one nest door)? 4. What are the negative effects from simply buying a bunch of tiles next to a new city? 5. In Civ 2 I could supply Food from one city to another. Can I do this in Civ 5? 6. Other then simply buying buildings is there any way to "force" a city to grow faster? In Civ 2 I could add Settlers to a city until it reached size 8. 7. I saw someone comment that you need to build a Farm on every river Tile pretty much no matter what. Why? I have a Forest, Grassland, Hill, River. Why would Farm be best? 8. Can I change the Tile type? I.e. From Plains to Grassland? Change Mountain to something useful? Thanks for any help.
