    Just got a new laptop with Windows 10, no optical drive, so I bought the Steam version. I already had Steam to get Civ V, so I took the red pill.

    Each time I hit Ctrl-S to save the game, it seems to be saving them in the cloud somewhere. I see other save files that I didn't put there. Is there an option to save my games locally, rather than "out there"?

    Can you navigate back to the 'normal' save location (.../conquests/saves) when the directory pops up? It should default to the last-used location next time you save.

    Also, it's recommended you install outside of program files, but I'm sure you already knew that.
