Hi all, I'm really getting into Civ 5 at this time (thanks Aspyr!) and just splurged on buying the whole kit (all DLCs and expansions) since Aspyr had it on sale recently. I have a couple of quick questions, and my Google-fu is weak, I could not find the appropriate answers on the internet. #1. In Strategic Map View, I see the city banners (the ones with the city names). There are 2 tiny numbers BELOW the city's name. What the hell are they?? Sometimes one of the numbers is a dash (-) rather than a number. I know what the other symbols mean. I get it that the number by the shield means city defense rating. I also know that the larger number to the LEFT of the city name is the city size. #2. In Espionage system (I think this is starting with expansion G&K), just why would I opt to move my spy to a "Hideout"? There is a button that lets me move my Spy to a hideout. Is there actually an advantage to doing that? I don't see any advantage as to why you would put your spy on a sabbatical/vacation. A spy that is not actively spying is worthless to my empire. So I'm puzzled as to why this function is in the game. thnx for answers!
