    Unhappy Annoying newbie style question (asked by a non newbie)

    Ok, ive been playing civ for years and been at apolyton for years but could someone answer me this

    In the foreign minister report (where it shows you each civs name, city style, attitude towards you, gold etc.), what do the little numbers on the left represent?

    The size of AI capitals and some other cities is known before embassies are established in the following ways:

    F3 (Foreign Advisor) - Will give the size of the capital without an embassy.
    F5 (Trade Advisor) - Will give the size of all AI capitals in the supply/demand section after the discovery of trade, even though these civs have not yet been contacted.
    F8 (Top Five Cities) - Will give population statistics from 4000BC

    F3 will show 0 - I think - until maps have been exchanged. If you have no embassy but have shared geography a size figure will appear.

    It shows zero if you haven't discovered their capitol yet.

    But if you exchanged maps you also get that effect.
