Civ 4 BTS has everything I wanted but I dont understand why has sid meier shortened the game so much. This is a type of game I want so if someone can suggest a mod that can enchance the experience. 1. Start earlier, maybe 6000 BC. to be normal pace until 2000 BC then it keeps on slowing So i enjoy eras. Eg: In the current normal game I was playing on a TERRA map. when I discovered the new world. I dispatched settlers, workers, explorers etc. But by the time i reach I already discovered Gun powder. Middle Ages pass by quickly. There is no time to enjoy. 2. More more more techs but in historical order. I dont want Meditation in 100 AD. 3. Maybe Larger maps but its not important as the features above. PS please dont ask me to use RISE OF MANKIND mod, i have it but it doesnt satisfy my needs.
