@Lawton - see recent edit. Your comment appears false.

comment Is a Culture Bomb the only way to steal territory from another civ in Civ5?
@Oak - interesting. What is the special one-off ability of the great artist in the expansion?

comment What about Great Person tile improvements in Civ5?
Wrt. to resource linking: They will (May 2012) only link strategical resources, but not luxury resources. Now that caused some confusion :-)

comment How to improve Civilization 5 savegame load performance?
I am now accepting this answer, as I have a new machine (everything new) with an SSD and I really have the impression that the SSD has a tremendous impact on load performance in all games ...

comment Dungeons and Dragons Online, Good for Groups?
@Alex: Can you back up that claim? Because that sounds seriously weird for a MMO, and given the asymmetry of the xDSL connections I would assume most of my European peers had been using back when it wasn't free to play, I also have a very hard time imagining this working.

comment Is a gaming laptop noticable louder than desktop computer?
@Arkvie - good point. It's also that I'm just not very fond of headphones. Ears overheat too quickly :-) (and I can't stand the in-ear models)

comment Little Big Planet levels site
Probably belongs to a meta discussion, but, yes, I'm saying. The way you phrased it sounded like they have some relevance but are too old and maybe incomplete. So I would include them.

comment Little Big Planet levels site
Nitpick: When I read phrases like "google search turned up ... lists" "... (like the top 10 lists from 2008)" it makes me wonder really hard why no links are included in the question :-)

comment How does road maintenance work?
@Wil - isn't the tile in #2 at the bottom where the 2nd worker is standing on a city tile? Plus: I was in the situation that I couldn't remove some roads that seemed to be mine (conquered or whatever, I do not exactly remember). So there seem to be some further subtleties to this.

comment In Civ5, is there any point to immediately annexing a city?
But while the city is rioting, you cannot buy anything either -- or can you?

comment Understanding unit movement
If I'm unsure where to move the unit to, I prefer the move-to button, as that is somehow a 2-step process (2 clicks) while the right mouse button feels like a one-step, even though I can hold it down and "cancel" it by choosing the units tile as target tile.

comment Production and Research overflow in Civilization 5
Hmmm ... indeed this is a 10% waste over the tech cycle. Guess I never bothered, but I never played difficulty > Prince, so it didn't matter that much I guess.

Oh dang!! I felt much better before I read this ;-)

comment Production and Research overflow in Civilization 5
Interesting - I never hit his problem with research - how do you hit this? Most research I do takes a couple of rounds, so waste should be really limited?

1) How do I start in windowed mode? 2) Good idea about perfromance monitoring ... I should check and get a perfmon profile for Civ5 together.

Great, "different", answer!

@GoatRider : I'm really confused now -- I thought you get the bonuses from these tile improvements only if a city is working it?

comment In Civ5, What are the ways of improving water tiles?
Not also that (IIRC) the seaport only helps for water tiles with sea resources on them!
