84/52 Earth map. 18 civs, distributed with a mind for balance, aesthetic terrain, interesting landmarks, historical flavour and three "new" civs requiring no mods - the island-hopping Polynesians (who IMO are great fun to play!), the Narrinjeri of Australia, and the Inuit.
Civs present: England, France, Rome, Carthage, Zulu, Egypt, Persia, Russia, Mongols, Khmer, Japan, Inuit, Sioux, Aztecs, Mayans, Incans, Polynesians, Narrinjeri.
To play this map: download, unzip, find the Civ4BTS folder in your Documents, open Saves > Worldbuilder and drop it in. It will now be a Scenario you can play in single or multi.
I've endeavoured to make the correct location of every BTS Civ's Capital an enjoyable and characterful spot to start. If you'd like to play a Civ or Leader who's not present in this version, drop me a line and I can make a version of New Terra with different factions.
Map variants: Cold War - no civs playable but USA, USSR and China. Old Terra - Indigenous American peoples versus an Old World full of Barbarians.

This map used to be primarily hosted here. Ignore the old link, this is the one that's updated when I tweak the map.
