I wondered about this too, but I found that their woodsman promotion was very handy indeed, making them more worthwhile in the long run. Count me in. Same DX and my capital's gfx vanished 3/4 of the way into the game. Nothing I did brought it back though. Loaded up a game on your eastern med map by the way. It rocks! Very enjoyable, you've done a great job in pretty much every respect. It perfectly fits the Anno Domini mod.
