    Scandinavians/Norsemen/Vikings/Danes... Time to clear this up once and for all.

    There are different definitions of what constitutes "Scandinavia". Some definitions include Finland, some don't. What distinguishes a correct definition from an incorrect definition? It's like arguing about whether the true name of the sea in-between England and France is "the English Channel"...

    Dawn of Civilization - an RFC modmod by Leoreth

    I really think you should bear in mind that Leoreth doesn't owe you anything whatsoever and works on this fantastic mod using his own time for no money. We should be very grateful for all the hard work he's put in, and especially grateful for anything he does at the behest of someone else. If...

    I assume jammerculture means this post: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showpost.php?p=9179314&postcount=194 If Parliament simply means any system that features something that could be called a "parliament" (including, presumably, equivalent words in other languages), regardless of whether or not...

    That would make sense if the two civics were mutually exclusive (like Representation and Universal Suffrage in the original civics). What would be a examples of regimes that had Parliament but not Representation? Representation but not Parliament? Both Representation and Parliament...

    I think it's more confusing. How can you have a parliament without some level of representation? How is "government" not an integral part of "organization" anyway?

    Personally I'd much rather have no. 1. Having Stephen Hawking appear in the medieval age feels so anachronistic as to be meaningless - it doesn't undermines immersion so defeats the point of having civ-specific great people names in the first place.

    There are numerous civilizations grouped under "Indian" which were much further apart, politically and culturally, than the Western Roman Empire and the Byzantine Empire (but I'm perfectly happy with Leoreth's reasons for having the Byzantines as a separate civ).

    :agree: If the research-all-classical-techs UHV is implemented along with the historical conquest goal, then Rome's UHVs will still be extremely challenging even with the current UP.

    Yes it's a pity. However, if Rome was buffed to make the more ambitiously historical UHVs achievable then presumably AI-Rome would also be a little greater as well. On a completely unrelated subject... I think it would be nice if the corporations took their names from their corresponding...

    Dawn of Civilization - an RFC modmod by Leoreth

    This would be my ideal Roman UHV: 1) Control all Mediterranean tiles in 200 AD 2) Have a continuous cultural area stretching from Rome to at least one tile of Britain by 300 AD 3) Possess all classical techs by 400 AD I know that's extremely tough, but it's actually significantly less than...

    Dawn of Civilization - an RFC modmod by Leoreth

    Couldn't it just be that every Mediterranean coastal tile should be within Rome's borders? So it would entail conquest, colonization and cultural expansion. It would also be great if another Roman UHV could be achieving certain techs by a certain date (or making the required UHV buildings...

    I don't know anything about AI modding; perhaps you'd like to post your suggestion here so the modmod-creator notices it: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=361905

    Since colonisation of the East Indies has been mentioned recently, may I suggest spawning independent cities in the Malay Archipelago (East Indies)? The region was filled with dense populations of city-building trader types long before European colonisation, so it would make much more sense...
