Civilization 5 Tactics and Strategies

This post will outline and detail strategies, tips, tricks, cheats and tactics for Sid Meier’s Civilization V (Civ5/CivV). Call it an FAQ of sorts.

Let’s get on with it, shall we?

Some quick observations:

  • Open borders allows you to surround an enemy, then attack. This works wonders later on.
  • The trebuchet seems a bit overpowered, and is definitely the best way to attack cities.
  • The easiest way I know of to skip the first intro movie is to simply rename “Civ5_Opening_Movie_en_US.wmv” to something else.
  • Alternatively, edit the “usersettings.ini” file found in “My Documents\My Games\Sid Meiers Civilization 5\”. Make sure to change “SkipIntroVideo=0” to “=1” on line 15.
  • For a copy of the English manual for Civ5, head here
  • How to turn on workers automatically keeping improvements
    In the My Documents folder go to the Civ V folder and then look for the “usersettings.ini” file.

    There is a setting called AutoWorkersDontReplace. Change the value from 0 to 1.

CoD4 Walkthrough Part 2: Crew Expendable

After the loading screen, you’ll be in a helicopter ready to board thefreighter. Kill the enemies in the bridge. Follow your team through the corridors, nabbing the laptop intelligence (1/30) from the crew quarters. Exit back onto the deck, and go down the stairs in front of you to follow your team towards the aft of the ship. The helicopter will kill the enemies shooting at you from the windows above and then report bingo fuel and return to base. Follow Price and the rest of the team through the watertight door, being sure to sweep both the left and right fire lanes. Head down the stairs and around the corner your team will come under fire from enemies down a hallway. Kill them and proceed to the red-lit area. Wait for a teammate to throw a flashbang into the area before heading through the door and killing two more crewmembers. Go up the short flight of stairs and kill the crewmember who appears from the right. Follow your team through the stacks of boxes to another door, which Price kicks in. As you go down the stairs, pick up laptop #2 from a table at the foot of the stairs (2/30). Move with your team, eliminating crewmembers on the catwalks above as well as ones hiding among the boxes. Flush them out with frag grenades and eventually you’ll clear the area. Proceed towards the blue cargo container. Grab the manifest (its the flashing clipboard) resting on top of the crate within, and prepare for all hell to break loose. Follow your team up the stairs to the catwalks, and don’t get left behind! Once on the deck, make a jump for the hovering helicopter.
