Ok, this sounds really dumb, I know, but how do you fire a nuke? I click on it, click the big red button, and a city, but nothing happens. It won't do anything, whether I use the button or just right click on the map. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Hm, strange. Make sure you are in range and have a war going with the target-city. If you don't have a town in range you might want to deploy the nuke on an aircraft-carrier.
Ah, a war. Of course. What's the range of the nuke? Surely it should be deployable from anywhere to anywhere. Real ones pretty much are, aren't they?
I don't know the range by heart, just look ingame. They fly pretty far but not unlimited I think.
I'm still having problems. I've got a nuke about 10 squares from an enemy city, with whom I'm at war, and nothing will shift this bloody nuke.
Should it say movement 1?
Ok, I tried it myself now. You have to go to nuke mode (red button or n) then search a target that is in range but far enough from friendyl units or terrain. If you can nuke the tile will be green. A nuke damages also the 8 tiles around it, so make sure that you don't have friendly units there, or borders to your own country or to an allied country.
If you are out of range the tile seems to be gray rather than green.
Yeah, I finally made it work. I didn't realise you couldn't nuke targets which you couldn't see. They have to be in line of sight, but just on the edge of it, so you don't catch your own units. Bit fiddly for my liking, but I can finally nuke to my hearts desire :)
Thanks for all the help, Del

Lol, beware, nukes destroy land. I'll get a screenshot sometime of one of my friend's cities... it is almost completely surrounded by desert from Global Warming.

ya lol I wouldnt use a nuke on an enemy city unless you really have to, because later on when you install a new government in the invaded territory the nuclear radiation doesen't go away, and after using a nuke the rest of the world kinda hates you
