comment Does Starcraft 2 run better on Windows or Mac?
I am on a Mac and the game runs faster when I check high settings. It runs very slowly with lower settings. Perhaps that is the reason?

comment Civilization V map generator
I always play the same civ (Persia). And the desert patches without mountains go on for a bit. I only play for a few moves before I give up (out of boredom). I finally managed to start a game and get a decent map (although heavily forested). Your explanation above is good, but I think the map generator is date-based and I just start games at the wrong hour. (Same happened with Alpha Centauri...)

I left all the default settings as they were. I still keep running into very boring flat worlds with random desert patches all over the place.

comment Do harbours work?
I think that is one of the benefits of the working trade network. But my problem is that my harbours do not create the trade network.

comment How do I move Steam games to another location on disk on my Mac?
~/Applications or ~/Games would be fine (apparently Steam games are only available to one account???) but ~/Library absolutely isn't.

Thanks. Note that they could create a directory /Applications/Steam. The point is that the home directory is for my files, not applications.

I'll try the symbolic link. I don't want applications in my home directory because a home directory is simply not the correct place for them. Both Windows and Mac OS have certain directories for certain types of data and I think Valve should not break them.
