    It's already been three weeks since Khan - I would say go ahead and post when ready.

    Ok, I will probably post it Friday at the latest.
    That is, unless someone comes up with a Gustavus map before then.

    st, I will probably use your map with some modifications.
    I have yet to come up with a better map since all that time..

    I can make a Bluetooth map for the future, if you want?

    Just tell me when you want it ready by.

    I would also need someone to separately conceive the achievements, though I recommend having them to do with coastal cities, exploration, pillaging, and/or ski infantry.

    Hola! I don't know about funniest, but the last two (Gajah and Khan) were very enjoyable for me.

    I think consentient was doing a Harald Bluetooth map - we'll see if he chimes in. Looks like we skipped Gustavus Adolphus. Being as things are pretty slow, I don't have a problem with skipping ahead again. :) I've updated the list, in the middle of the first page of this thread.

    hiawafer - looks like nobody is posting a map, so have at it! I can always roll another one in a week or two, unless you have some good ideas...

    OK I will make one today. How difficult is good? What about trhese achievements? What about a game with a lot of religion?

    We've had a variety of difficulties, it's really your call. I always enjoy the religion sub-game myself, and Harun has the desert bias... :)

    The Achievements can be almost anything - if you've looked at some of the previous games in the series you can see there is a wide variety.

    I have always found it helpful to not just roll and post a map, but to play the first 100-150 turns to get a feel for the dynamic (opponents, resources, are there ice tiles that block sea movement?, etc.). People often use IGE to check the map, and sometimes tweak it. I use Firetuner and run several simulations, but I think I'm the only one who obsesses that much. :D

    so I think I like these achievements

    I - Take every policy of Piety
    II - Build 2 of Stonehenge, Haghia Sophia, Borbudor or great Mosqe
    III - Convert 5 of the enemys
    IV - Conquer 2 of the enemys
    V - climb tourisme to over 1000

    is it ok?
