I can see a "pressure" value on cities which seems to indicate how powerful is the conversion to a religion in a city. But how can I translate that value to some meaning? What does "+4 pressure" imply? What's the difference between +4 and +20? Can I tell how long it will be until a religion converts a citizens by looking at the pressure value?

How much pressure the civs are being put under to convert? so the higher the better. Unless you already ment that, but want stats on how fast it occurs. – Doomsknight Jun 22 '12 at 21:40

It definitely appears to be a flat scale, 12 pressure converts twice as fast as 6 pressure. I had one city with 12 christian pressure and 6 Buddhist, and it was 2/3 christian and 1/3 Buddhist after a while. Each successive citizen takes more points of pressure to convert
