    I vote for RFCA,I like all RFC's,but I'm a fan of Asia.
    I'm looking out for those that don't exist yet,such as:RFC South East Asia(mine),RFC M&A,RFC Africa.

    RFCE feels more robust than SoI. But SoI is a worthy contender!

    Help me. I don't know where I am.
    Haven't tried SoI, but RFCA is amazing - so that's where my vote goes.

    Its easy to get bored with SoI since the ai is coded to found pretty much the same cities every time and it didn't help much when embryodead gave settle spots more variation, he also fixed the fun but ahistorical stuff like uber-Mamluks whod just send stacks and stacks of doom all over the place and capture like half of the map before collapsing, also implemented a second crusader civ so neither becomes strong and kingdom of jewsalem is stuck with worthless desert cities and does basically jack sh!t in terms of gameplay. The occasion of joao who would capture a lot of cities in India to form a monstrous portugal is no more, unplayable civs have been added to remove even more unpredictability such as the buyids, theyre only purpose is to spawn early on, haunt the abbasids and die. I could probably go on. Granted while SoI does a good job of imitating Middle East the games are highly predictable and become less and less entertaining the more you play. Thats why RFCE might actually be better than SoI.

    I would advise any future modmakers to not create a second SoI - introduce a good deal of variation, it's the spice of life after all. It may be tempting to hardcode a lot of stuff to happen just like you want it in perfect accordance with your vision of history, but its not good in the long run because every game will feel same and people will stop playing it eventually. Excuse me for the rant :D

    I would advise you to try and say something positive in the next 10 posts that you make, instead of always being a sourpuss.

    I generally don't think posts like "wow that's awesome" are very helpful and try to say something else instead. If that makes me a sourpuss, well that's unfortunate, I didn't see that coming. :lol:
