    I would agree with DZ because as we are downgrading the difficulty level, maybe we should make it just a little more challenging.

    You know, in the editor, we can make it impossible to get Germany. It isn't that hard.

    That's how I generally do it with the Babs. Actually, build a couple but never use them. The GA's from units with Egypt and Babylon are just way, way too early.

    We could also turn off the effects of pollution. Although, we had NONE in this demogame (i.e., grasslands turning ot plains). It only happened 2-3 turns after domination victory though. This also means that nukes won't change the terrain. We could have forest and jungle change to grasslands.

    I strongly dislike any such tamering with the editor...sort of feels like cheating. Leave Germany in. Leave pollution on. I voted Egypt. Babylon sounds good as well. Any civ will be interesting. It's not who we play with, it's how we play....and we play well

    Turn pollution off? How does that make the game better? Might as well remove corruption too. :nono:

    I agree with Paalikles on this matter. Let's not tamper with the editor.

    Looks like the babs choice is winning :). We should try to avoid building an army of Bowmen.

    :lol: Remember the first Bab War? They lost 40 bowmen that way! They had just made it to the other side of the pangaea, took two English cities, and France took them out with knights and cavalry.

    Oh dear, well we're not that stupid CT. (are we?) And I don't think removing effects of pollution from game is good, we shuold try to model reality to a decent extent (pollution yes.)
