Is there a way to make the game start in 3500 BC?

    Is there a way to make the game start in 3500 BC? 3000 BC? I'd like to potentially make a mod that starts a bit later than 4000 bc every time, but plays out turn wise and technology wise as normal.

    In GlobalDefines.xml:

    Code:
    	<Define>
    		<DefineName>START_YEAR</DefineName>
    		<iDefineIntVal>-4000</iDefineIntVal>
    	</Define>
    The turns would still be the same length so unless you change those in Civ4GameSpeedInfos.xml, the game's end date would be shifted as many years later as it starts.

    Thanks for pointing out that file! I haven't committed to changing it just yet, but if I do, I'll make sure to tweak game speed as well. Thanks again!
