Hello Jabarto! I write you this as a open letter and not as a pm, because maybe other players/modders read it as well and also would like to answer it. As we all know ROM is huge, so huge that you barely come to play industrial, modern or even future (at least playing at snail speed) and by late renaissance time most games are decided, even on higher difficulties- of course you can start a later age but unfortunately only fantasy maps work for later starts like modern. I always wanted to start earth maps in later ages but wasn't able to do so as we all know they start in ancient times all the time if they arent scenarios. If of course, you open world builder and give all civs all techs for let's say industrial, and then save the worldbuilder file as a new scenario, wouldn't it be possible to have a industrial earth start then? I once tried to include a 28 player - earth map (2.6 save) with lead, tea and shrimps so I would be able to play it in 2.7test1 but when I loaded the save it didn't work... :/ So if you say its possible I would suggest we could have earth classical earth medieval earth renaissance earth industrial earth modern and earth future map starts - and please not the "larger europe" earth map of rhye - I hate it. First of all it has bad starting locations which also are random too (I like to start in germany if I play germans and not in south africa!!!) and secondly the ressources are scrambled randomly as well - elephants in mexico?! Thx for reading it. Would like to help with the work if you say it's generally possible. I also suggest that - for instance - a medieval start includes a nation to have a worker and a longbow maybe, while a industrial start has a colonist, a worker and a rifle man etc. ... More suggestions are welcome!!!
