Why is this not in the game?

    I usually set my military units to alert along my borders to protect me from aliens. If there is one or two, cool. If there is more of a threat, I know to pump or move more units. However, an alert unit only wakes up to non-alien units if you're at war with them. This means that I must constantly check my borders in order to be prepared.



    Basically, why can't I be alerted when my guard sees an army?

    This has never been a feature in any Civilization game. Prior to Civ V, the camera would center on any observed movement, so you would see when "friendly" units started to creep up on your sentries. They dispensed with this auto-focus in Civ V; the camera only moves when a combat action is observed.

    Having a sentry wake up every time it sees any unit would be tedious, in my opinion. I'd prefer that they restore the camera center on all movement (or at least make it an option).

    Isn't there a difference between Fortify and Alert or something? I know BUG had that option in Civ 4 but I also thought that Civ 5 had something similiar.

    CivV Alert would wake up on any barb movement.
