I'm not a hardcore player, I'm just too busy. But I want to improve my game and the area I think I should do that most urgently is city micromanagement. I gather that most better players assign their population to workable tiles or specialist slots manually. Now my question is how you do that. At the beginning you get notified every time your population increases, but that ends after pop 5 I think. So how do you notice when you population has grown? Do you click through your cities every turn or do you let your governor decide and only correct his decisions from time to time? How much per turn do you consider enough to assign a specialist or a mine worker? I realize that city growth is good because it will give you and provide you with new workers for new tiles/slots, bit when do you slow your potential growth for ////? I know this forum and I don't expect a consensus , but please enlighten me with your reasoning.
