    I see the full tables are included at the end of the manual just like for civrev. That's great stuff!

    I'm wondering now whether there'll eventually be a printer friendly version without the coloured background, because as nice as that manual looks, I can't afford to have my printer chew through that much colour. ;)

    Gah! It doesn't say how SP cost progresses!

    Also, it seems they switched back to the model that a research agreement give +15% science for the duration of the agreement.

    From seeing this in the strategy guide thread:
    (Note that I didn't discover this. I'm merely posting this in a more visible way, but giving full credit to bhavv for informing us.)

    I visited civilization5.com and their Download section. Over on the right, there's a "download manual" link.

    Slow download. Probably be a bit slower now, eh? :)

    Glad to hear it--just getting a random tech at the end seemed a bit... random.

    In the mod section they have my clock feature. Simple Clock Example. Hopefully that is available on day 1 so I don't need to figure it out or wait for someone else to do it :)

    That must be an error. It definitely provides you with a free tech. I'll let the powers that be know about it. :)

    Under Game Options:
    This is exciting. Does that mean civ5 uses the Zoom-To-Cursor feature that I've been clamouring for? :) I'm a bit unsure what this description means exactly. It sounds like it only affects zoom-out, and not zoom-in as well
