    Earth 1862!!!

    Germany an Italy are unifying while the American Civil War is at its peak. Japan, a small feudal state, is restoring itself and becoming one of the strongest and most advanced nations in the world. The Boers had founded the South African Republic and the Second Opium War is being fought in China.

    Playable Civs:

    British Empire
    French Empire
    German Empire
    Austro-Hungarian Empire

    Downlad Here
    Credits:
    Rhye for the map
    Ekmek for the idea

    This scenario should only be played in Marathon speed!

    Only for BTS

    Small notes:
    1. Some of the events in this scenario are'nt 100% historical, most of the un-historicals colonies, events and wars were founded\happened\fought in the next\last 15 years and most of the changes are there because of gameplay and balancing reasons.
    2.Some of the civs are merged or represented by barbarians, Belgium is represented by Austria and Portugal and spain are merged as Iberia.

    Just took a sneak peek at the screenshots: looking good! (One nitpicky remark: as a Dutchman I couldn't help noticing queen Wilhelmina; I don't think she had been born yet in 1862. Officially - off the top of my head - I think it was king Willem III at the time.) Nice touch on the Boers by the way!:D

    Wilhemina is in because I don't have a proper leaderhead for Willem III...

    I suspected something like that (I don't mind, really). I can't wait to see this in action (this being a relative term with Marathon speed, but hey...); still, I won't see it until I get home tomorrow. Meanwhile, good show Lokolus!:hatsoff:

    Checked out the US (Unionwise) and the British plus the overall map. First impression: looking grand!;) Haven't much time to play though, as I'm busy on 1000 BC for BTS right now...

    I've played several hours as the Russians now. It's really about coming from behind!!! I kept the difficulty on noble. This is my first game on "Marathon", man it takes a long time to improve the lands with roads etc.

    The game seems quite balanced. The british are in the lead by now, and it seems like they by far have the best position from start.

    I started out building workers in ALL my cities. Doing it in ALL cities, that was a bit too much - but it payed out later when I could trade lots of ressources to all those that I didn't have. I went for democracy first for the Universal suffrage, switched to Universal suffrage and then completely neglected ALL research, going only for the money to rush build all over. First of all workers, but later also especially the western part of Russia. There is LOTS of forest to clear, this helps a lot on improving the far out small cities.

    I've been very active using diplomacy for trading both ressources, and whatever technologies could be traded, despite beeing a backward situation :lol: Biology helped a lot on growing the cities.

    So far I haven't built as much as one military unit. I sure hope I won't be attacked, cause all but my westernmost cities have more than unit inside :eek:

    I finally got to build factories, and it was in due time to rush build factory and coal plant in Moscow, and also managed to get the Pentagon in there :goodjob:

    Now I also have chosen State Property, and traded me to Electricity so Water Mills in all of Russia - here we come :D :D :D


    Overall - seems like a great job on this scenario :goodjob:

    Um, i can't get it to work. It download the Ra0archive file, and try to open it with WinAce, but it just gives me an empty folder entitled Earth_1862_AD. Any ideas?

    Looks good. I set everything in place probably 10 times for a scenario around this era, but never got it finished.. Drew up a tech tree, added a ton of flavour units..

    Anyways, I will give this a shot. :)

    You need to extract the file from the archive, download winrar: http://www.rarlab.com/
