    Ok, this is the mother of my GEM starter maps for ROM using the Clash of Civilizations civs!

    You will need the CoC civs and leaderheads to play this map/scenario. It's compatible with RoM 2.92 and probably AND too.

    I decided to place 44 of those new civs using a slightly updated version of the GEM map. I amended a couple of resources and added swamps and grassland where there used to be desert in a few regions.

    The map starts in 6000BC with each of the following civs having 1 settler and 1 warrior.
    1. Canada
    2. USA
    3. Mexico
    4. Cuba
    5. Venezuela
    6. Brazil
    7. Chile
    8. Argentina
    9. England
    10. France
    11. Germany
    12. Spain
    13. Italy
    14. Greece
    15. Poland
    16. Sweden
    17. Russia
    18. Ukraine
    19. Turkey (Ottomans)
    20. Isreal
    21. Arabia
    22. Iran
    23. Morrocco
    24. Arab Union
    25. Egypt
    26. Nigeria
    27. Congo
    28. Mali
    29. Ethiopia
    30. South Africa
    31. Kazakhstan
    32. Afghanistan
    33. Pakistan
    34. India
    35. Tibet
    36. Burma
    37. China
    38. Mongolia
    39. Korea
    40. Japan
    41. Vietnam
    42. Phillipines
    43. Indonesia
    44. Australia

    Just unpack to your Beyond the Sword/Mods/Rise of Mankind/Private Maps folder and you should be able to load the map as a scenario.

    If you are having problems playing this map with AND it might be down to the following - you need to make sure you checked both of the following options when you installed AND;
    • Military Civics
    • Ideology Civics
    If you didn't check both options then the game will say "you have been defeated" after loading.

    If you don't want to re-install from scratch you can try opening the map script in notepad and delete the lines below, only delete CIVICOPTION_IDEOLOGY if you didn't load Ideology Civics and only delete CIVICOPTION_MILITARY if you didn't install Military Civics;

    CivicOption=CIVICOPTION_MILITARY, Civic=CIVIC_BANDITS
    CivicOption=CIVICOPTION_IDEOLOGY, Civic=CIVIC_NONE

    If these lines don't currently exist, which they don't on downloading the map you might have to add them for each of the civs present.

    If there any chance that that map would run under AND? I miss on the old map from genghis some of the resources. And 12 players more like the old map will be good;-)

    It should run under AND as long as you have the Clash of Civilization pack too. Make sure you run the WOC installer after downloading and if you are having problems let me know. I'm not sure what you mean when you talk about 12 players though?

    Well I've done a bit of playtesting and started a game as the Afghan's.

    So far it's about 800 AD and I'm bloody loving this, though the turns are taking about 90 seconds each but still it's really good fun. Islam has spread from it's founding city in Pakistan as far East as the Phillipines and as far West as the balkans and after a protracted war with the Pakistani Empire I eventually conquered their capital Islamabad and Karachi (the Holy city) and that put a stop to their aggression.

    Christianity was founded far ealier in Africa somewhere so it's not spread as far though most of Africa and Western Europe is Christian.

    Buddhism was founded in Lhasa and has not spread very far or in any great volume, mainly due Tibet being fought over by the Indian Empire and Burma.

    Further afield my maps are sketchy though the Eastern Empires of Japan and the Phillipines are the most succesful followed by France, India, Vietnam and myself and Pakistan then there is a bit of a gap as the smaller empires all managed to survive this far apart from Tibet which finally got conquered by Burma a few years back.

    I thouroughly recommend this map if your PC can handle it, well worth a game.

    Isn't the maximum amount of Civs 50?
    Why did you stop at 44 then? :D

    Edit: Always get the "you have been defeatet" error when selecting custom szenario. If I take the predone one (where you can only chose the basics) it works. Unfortunately I dont want to have all winning conditions activated.
