I'm a long time lurker on these forums but this is my first time posting. Like most everyone else I've been playing Civ5 none stop, and like some people (obviously not all) I have a fowl taste in my mouth. I REALLY want to like this game but as someone else said else where I find my self just wishing I was playing civ4. I think maybe there are just some simple things in the game I am not getting so thought I would ask you all about it: 1 - Is there a way to effect gold/culture/science production other than what buildings you choose to build? 2 - Is unhappiness a pool that effect every one of your cities evenly or does it effect individual cities more than others? 3 - Is there a way to see what luxury resources your empire has currently? I definitely feel like I'm missing something obvious on this one... 4 - Being you can't have more than one unit to a tile any more (a feature I'm torn on) I've run into some problems during peace time. Where do you all put your troops? I find, especially on smaller maps, that if they are with in a few hexes of any borders other civs start to think I'm going to declare war. I also run into problems of getting things moved around the mapped, any suggestions? 5 - On a similar note I find I have a near impossible time exploring the map once things begin to get developed. Once I can sign open borders I find most passageways between cities and mountains blocked by other civs troops. I haven't found any way to map trade, am I missing something really obvious (which wouldn't surprise me, I didn't get that you didn't need roads to get access to resources)?
