Finally I'm playing an India game again. The map of South Asia has gone through heavy modifications so it's interesting to see how that affects the India gameplay. The map change is more of a good news to India: more room for cities, rainforest no longer causes unhealthiness, cities can be settled on top of rainforests, and maybe the +1 food to rice yield. But there're also penalties: rainforest plantations give 1 less food than before, making many of the calendar resources less appealing, and there're more barbs on the subcontinent(archers, axemen and swordsmen). The 3 historical victory goals(under Normal speed) for India are: 1. The Dharmic Religions: Control the shrines of Hinduism and Buddhism in 100 BC (Turn 134) 2. Land of Temples: Build 20 temples by 700 AD (Turn 191) 3. Sacred Rivers: Control 20% of the world's population in 1200 AD (Turn 241) For the first goal, it's obvious you need 2 Great Prophets to build the shrines yourself. And the second goal probably says you should get at least 10 cities. But alternatively you can try to steal a religion from your neighbors(which is not what we do in this game). The final goal says you need even more cities.
