    The Cheshire Plain.
    I have a plan to create a scenario using the following set-up but would like some ideas and help to get it as accurate as possible. I will probably be using RoM, AND, CoC and possibly ROME as I love the idea of the Colonial units and the WWI units that are likely to follow in this scenario.

    Year: 1900 AD.
    Map: GEM (Giant Earth Map) converted for RoM using the modern resources - Horse in the America's, Potato's in Europe etc.
    Playable Nations: All the recognised major nations are listed below including colonial possessions, plus smaller independant nations. I will choose between 30 and 50 playable nations and some that are not playable to start, but using the "assimilation" feature I may have them as conquered and they may re-appear if I do that? Feedback on what nations to include would be welcome.

    Bold = Suggested Playable Nation.
    Italic = Playable Vassal

    Given the limitations of even a superb map like the GEM maps, not all those nations/colonies are going to be present and even some of the bigger independant nations like Switzerland may not fit on the map, so inevitably I'm going to omit some or merge others. For example I will be merging 'Orange River Colony' with 'South African Republic Transvaal'.

    I would like advice on;
    • The nations people would like to play.
    • What technology the nations would have possesed in 1900 AD and what units they would have possesed too, especially the Asian, Middle Eastern and African States.
    • Who was at war with who in 1900 AD?
    • What is the best way to create a scenario like this? I have done this kind of thing using WB before but is there a better way?
    This isn't going to be a quick thing and may take a month or two, but I hope you are as excited about this as I am! :D

    Sorry to say this is unlikely to be finished now... just can't get motivated since the new Civ is due out later this year. Sorry for anyone that was anticipating this, though the lack of replies suggests there wasn't much interest anyway. ;)

    This scenario would be great but over 40 civs on GEM with RoM and full of cities is too much for even the best of computers.

    Sadly that is true, I've got another GEM map with 44 Civs that I posted last week but it's a hard push on my PC which is pretty good. Turns are taking about 2 mins in 1100 AD. It's worth it though as I just love Giant Maps.
