When I first started playing CivII I played with gridlines on all the time.
Now that I'm completely comfortable with moving in the isometric view I play
with gridlines on in the initial part of the game when I'm building a lot of
cities and have the off the rest of the time. It makes the display a lot
better looking in CivII with gridlines off.
