How many Km's are one city square grid?

2 km. it is somewhere in the rules.

Ignore the fact. I did planetary scale mathematics based on those numbers, just look away, unless you want 13,000x13,000 planets for realism.

Just think that there is additional "non-city" space between the grids (that also fits into the travel time between cities).

Well rules do say that there is a 200km gap between the cities - the cross-terrain option. Or at least implied based on speed and time etc.

Best to just ignore it really, unless its for speed calcs - otherwise you have a 2km long house?

I've always viewed facilities as more representative than actual depictions. For example, a PR would be more like a suburb/development than a single home. Yeah, in some cases it only adds 1 person, but in others it's several hundred.

Yep its for speed calcs. Also I think of it the same way you do Weylin.

The laws of physics don't work in the combine.
