Obviously someone wants to stand out...
Spoiler Hint :
Look in Ireland
Alexander in a nutshell.
It's not Greece, look at the City States in Ireland.
HHHNNGGGGGG, I know there's something here about Austria and the city states, but I just can't figure it out :/ I see Austria only has one city and the great wall, buuutttt I can't see anything else out of the odd here
Also going to start a thread about this.....
It's not Austria, I have a Canadian civilization mod, which uses the colours of Austria.
Anyways, the city state below the Greek city in Ireland is shaped like a star.
Nothing compared to Swastika shaped Attila territory:
It's a very old screenshot yes, from a G&K game I was playing with a friend of mine
Hey, BERGERPERSON! Why is that your nickname? Is "Berger" your last name? If it is, we might be distant relatives
Well, back on topic. That's a very weird territory, Attila!
Nah, we're not related, I got my name (Berger) from my father, who was born in Switzerland. I guess there's a small chance we're related, but I don't think.
History lesson, Berger is french for Shepard, and many last names, Taylor, Mason, Smith, etc.. were to show what your profession was. So my father's ancestors were shepards.
Same thing with German names. Müller, Schmidt, Bauer, Kaufmann, etc.
I wonder why we stopped that practice... from now on you all may refer to me as Mr. Civfanatiker.
Oh, I thought you were talking about 'murica setting up colonies in ireland (british isles) like reverse history.
Hmm... I see. Who knows? It's cool to meet someone with the same last name, though
My last name is Buonaparte. So does that mean I'm related to Napoleon?
I do not think, because his lastname was Bonaparte.
"Napoleon was born on 15 August 1769 to Carlo Maria di Buonaparte and Maria Letizia Ramolino in his family's ancestral home, Casa Buonaparte [...] In his twenties, he adopted the more French-sounding Napoléon Bonaparte."
Ah, I missed this
Hmm, glad my surname isn't "of Macedonia" or I'd have few friends on this Forum!
I didn't think this was possible. What's next? Satellites?
The Ancients are smarter than you think.
Ancient Alien Technology!
