comment Civ 5 won't let me found a new city, why?
Did you accidentally turn on the One City Challenge game option? Start a new game with advanced setup and check the options. I would think that blocks building settlers.

comment Can I disable unit upgrade from a ruin?
Separate from the other answer, I have only recommend against removing the <Column> definition since code may try to read it, and I don't know how forgiving of removed columns the system is. The rest should be okay.

comment Stuck on “Choose a production…”
IIRC, this is a known bug. Load a previous save (I set the options to autosave every turn) and make sure you choose production for the captured city before trading it back.

comment Ancient Ruins sound on file system?
Aren't .fpk files just renamed ZIP archives? It's common in other games.

comment Building academy on oil tile - Auto acquire oil?
I think this applies to all resources--not just strategic ones. And you can do it even after discovering the tech that exposes the resource. However, you don't gain the same additional yields (food, production, and gold) that the regular improvement provides.

comment Can you cut a smoker's tongue after it wraps around you?
You can also drop (not throw) a gas can on the tongue to break it. You do not have to ignite the can.

comment How can I make Civilization V more difficult?
I play with the Communitas mod which may affect this, but I've found Raging Barbarians does more harm to the AI since they are horrible at tactics.

comment In EU4, is there any way to set my ship to auto explore with an explorer?
Careful! It's very easy to go one tile too far and dooming your explorer to die from attrition. This is my least favorite aspect of playing the colonizing nations. :(

comment Civilization 5 unending turn?
Try right-clicking on the choose production button. If that doesn't work, the previous autosave may be your only hope. I highly recommend setting the frequency to every turn in the settings. Apparently, Civ5 is still not fully baked.

comment How can I get the tourism bonus for having the same religion as another civilization?
At least half of a city's population must follow a religion for the city to be following it, and its icon will appear. Does the civilization's religion work similar or is it really as you say: the religion with the most followers? For example, a pop 7 city requires 4 followers. Your saying that a pop 100 civ I I'll have a majority religion as soon as it gains it's first follower. Doesn't it need 50 followers? Or perhaps 5 of its 10 cities must have hat same religion.

comment How can I get a Zulu domination vic at Emperor level?
If you can get two rivals to fight and take cities, you can take those same cities later and liberate them to offset your warmonger penalties.
