    When I watch Civ videos on YouTube, I see their "Fog" looks like clouds. When I play, it looks like black blocks. Is this a setting I can change to get the clouds?

    Go to Video Options and increase the Fog of War setting above the minimum.

    This. It seems that when you install Civ 5, the game decides, based on your computer specs, what video quality to use. I loaded it on to one of my older computers and it defaulted to the black blocks (I still was able to run it with clouds), but when I installed it on to my newer computer, it defaulted to clouds and higher video settings.

    As I said, on my older system I was still able to bump up the defaults a bit and run the game without problems, so maybe you can too.

    Mine defaulted to the worst settings for fog, land an sea quality so I moved them to the highest and can't notice any difference in performance.
