In addition to holding down the right mouse button, the M key will toggle the single-move radius of a unit. There's also a button on the unit command panel that looks like a bunch of hexes with an arrow overlaid, this will do the same thing. (M is a shortcut for this command) It's not shown in your screenshot, but pressing G will bring up the hex grid, ...

The AI in Civ5 does some really weird things, but they can generally be explained by saying "you're winning, and the AI doesn't want to speed that process up." Whenever there is a large score delta or a victory is near, the AI will try to keep resources you need away from you at all costs through this sort of political weirdness. This leads to a lot of ...

You've got just a couple of options, generally. One is war. War, war, war. Crush your neighbors. Hopefully you're not so far behind the AI that you can't overtake them. The AIs are terrible at war (as I often mention) so just put siege units in your border cities with front-line troops between them and the enemy. Declare war, let them throw themselves ...

You can edit the game files to remove this specific Ancient Ruins reward. The data for the rewards is in a file called CIV5GoodyHuts.xml in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization V\Assets\Gameplay\XML\GameInfo Before making any edits, I suggest you make a backup. Then open the file in notepad/other text editor and remove ...

In vanilla Civ5, I would probably suggest the Arabian civilization, as their trait (Trade Caravans, +1 gold from all trade routes) and special building (Bazaar, increased luxury resources, +2 gold from oasis and oil tiles) both increase gold flow. However, it's possible to be filthy rich as any civ. Just make sure you prioritize techs and build stuff ...

The error suggests it's a DirectX crash, but it is not enough to update graphics drivers or confirm that DirectX is up to date. The breakthrough moment came for me when I found this Windows this Windows post explaining the error. The important part is: Andre.Ziegler replied on July 12, 2010 Bug Check 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR This indicates that an ...

Hold right-click (movement button), IIRC.

shanondin's answer was helpful but didn't fully solve the problem. Starting from their solution I was able to find other places where the upgrade was referenced. Rather than delete the reference in the XML file I opted to learn the mod tools and alter the game that way. The mod I created is available in the steam workshop here. The zip file for the mod is ...

You have to press any technological or territorial advantage you can get. If your continent is rich in iron and your friend's continent is not, you can dominate the seas with frigates and try taking some coastal cities to contain him through the Renaissance and Industrial eras. If you don't have iron, build up Privateers and coastal ranged units to repeal ...

The right answer to your question is: Conquer the holy city and annex it. That must be done. Then send in an inquisitor. This will destroy the holy city's pressure. It won't come back. How do I know this? I've done this many times. I always do this. If you leave it as a puppet, it won't work. I like to have almost all the cities at the end of the ...
