128/80 BTS Earth map, 18 civs. Carefully designed with a mind for balance, aesthetic terrain, interesting landmarks, and historical flavour.
Civs present in this version: Celtia, Greece, Russia, Carthage, Zulu, Egypt, Persia, China, Khmer, Japan, Iroquois, Sioux, Aztecs, Mayans, Incans, Kayapo, Polynesians, Narrinjeri.
Wait, who? The four "new" civs require no mods - the island-hopping Polynesians, the Narrinjeri of Australia, the Kayapo of Australia, and the fierce Iroquois are all amalgamations of existing civs and leaders, with a little tech tweaking and renaming to complete them. Beware if Hiawatha acquires a source of warbeasts from the Old World, or Kamehameha builds the Great Lighthouse!
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 to follow include a Cold War scenario, a Terra Veta 'Indigenous Americans fighting the barbarian Old World' challenge, and adaptations for the History Rewritten mod.

If you want to play a smaller map designed in a similar way to this one but with a few balance issues and a dodgily placed Australia, check out the original New Terra here.
