Could there be an option to just hide the combat animation in bombardments? Not seeing the damage caused by bombardments seems realistic and would be an easy fix, I think.

I confirm that bombardment can be used to get this useful information. I personally like it, but I admit it might be too much. What would you suggest?

At least, bombers are available at the same time than spies, that can investigate the city without dying. But this issue could be a serious limitation to give bombardment ability to early units like catapults or frigates.

I've been playing S2_6 civ2civ3, where Bombers and Helicopters attacking cities bombard.

On my slow netbook at least, the combat animation that occurs for each unit shows me how many units of what kind are in the city and how many hitpoints each has left. That's a lot of useful information; seems like too much to me.
