    I'm getting annoyed by each turn having to deal with all the pop ups suggesting I build such and such a thing. I feel I'm at the point where if I'd wanted to build it, I probably would have done so.

    Does anyone know how to turn these pop ups off?

    Options - Game - uncheck the box "Advisor Pop-Ups"

    Preach on sir, for I am with you!
    I disabled them just the other day, in my opinion I think the tips can be helpful in pointing you in the right direction but too often they miss the mark.

    I leave this on just because once in awhile I forget to build something important in a conquered city or such.

    i think here there are just way too many for them to be usefull and too many like you should build a settler where the whole world is settled fully or 'this city is producing a lot of gold you should build a market' while you're neck deep in a war for your survivial.

    Now if we can just figure out how to turn off the sound effects from a barb galley that sits off your coast turning donuts for oooo TWO THOUSAND YEARS!!!!! it's worse than working at the post office..............

    Does turning Sid Tips off also prevent those civ change pop-ups (the ones you get whenever you unlock them after a certain research)? Too many times I accidentally change civs because I press enter enter enter.

    AFAIK those can't be turned off. Pretty darn annoying in a team game if you're microing workers and your buddy trades techs for Feudalism or something... Baziff, anarchy and Serfdom!

    I turned it off for the sake of time. I 'try' to micro to much and a helpful tip just takes too much clicking added to the every 2-3 turns I check EVERY city. I hate people and things being helpful....I'll figure it out on my own lol.
