I've only noticed it over my logging camp and police station, but it could be over others. I can't figure out what it means.

the grid thing

I haven't noticed it changing any, but I haven't paid much attention to it. Does it have some meaning that I'm not getting?

That just means that currently there's an overlay of some kind that is active, for instance, if you go to the overlays menu on the bottom left and click on any of them, the graphic will change into that. The reason why its active when you click on logging camp and police station is because for the logging camp, the wood overlay is showing (telling you where is a good spot to place it) and the police overlay shows the crime rate.

:D I should've been able to figure that out, but I never would have. – Ullallulloo Sep 1 '11 at 23:20
@Ulla Don't worry, I had the same thought the other night when playing the demo. – bwarner Sep 2 '11 at 0:01
