Terra Fantasia

  1. Ozymandias
    Our species - Homo sapiens sapiens, "Wisest Of The Wise - has been around for about 200,000 years. Terra Fantasia's setting is 125,000 years ago, before the most recent Ice Age.

    It was a warmer world, approximately 3◦ C warmer than today (hippopotami swam in the Themes!) with sea levels approximately 5 meters higher than the present (Scandinavia was an island.)

    The mod's premise is that "we" moved out of Africa about 100,000 years before that momentous migration actually began.

    I've completely hanged the way Culture Groups are used. Rather than bunching each one of them together on the map - "European;" "Asian;" etc. - each Culture Group reflects the environment which most affected a Civ's development: Sea; Hills; Forest; Plains; Rivers.

    Included is the Terrain file as Supa's "Savannah" graphic overlays (replacing Marsh) are required. (NB: areas of vegetation aren't precisely known for the Eemian, so I've taking "artistic license" with an eye towards play balance.)
