    India - Rajaraja Chola Dravidian Emperor; the Shiva bronze for Hinduism was created by his kingdom, the Cholas controlled a vast empire across India and South East Asia and the cultural achievements during his period is world renowned. Dravidian culture is mostly known as Indian culture, but the Dravidians were never represented by their great kings. Please Firaxis, do something about this. It's barbaric to give the credit of their achievements to Europeans. WE WANT A DRAVIDA KING.

    And thus we come to the heart of the problem with making India just one civ. The Tigris Euphrates area is always treated as multiple civs. Imagine how we'd feel if the Vikings, Germans, Dutch, English, and Austrians all got lumped into one "Germanic" civilization.


    A French civ led by Henri of Navarre would be a very different France. Good call! On the other hand if I was German you'd be on my "list" and I don't mean "Christmas Card List."

    Ugh. Imagine a US with agricultural and philosophical traits. What would even be the point in being American any more?

    That really depends on what you consider the point of being American is.

    I think we'd all appreciate it if you didn't spout ugly, useless racism.

    I just discover this answer to my post ...:confused:

    I don't make a difference between "civilization" and "natives". What you called "natives" are just civilizations that are less advanced on the tech tree (they don't have discover Gunpowder or metal casting, for example).

    I'm pleased to have (and to fight) civilizations like aztec, inca, sioux or maya because I think that "age of discovery " with exploration and colonization of a "new world" is the funniest part of the game. That's why I think there are not enough "natives" in the game. I want more!

    And some of them would filled some "always empty" areas on the world map:
    tupi in amazonia, inuits on polar area, polynesian for the pacific area...

    Apart from the various ancient greek states rulers, like Leonidas, Pyrrhos, Kassandros, Seleucos, Ptolemy etc there could be an industrial one, Eleutherios Venizelos. Associated with Greece doubling its size for a while tripling it.

    Greece : Leonidas or Solon.
    Byzantine Empire : Herakleios.
    Cuba : Fidel Castro.
    Germany : Adolfo Hitler.
    Israel : Theodor Herzl.
    Russia : Lenin.

    I would also want to see some great peoples to have a bigger role and part in the game. Maybe one for each empire.
    For example figures like Sokrates, Aristotle, Homer, Galileo Galilei, Einstein, Voltaire, Marx, che Quevara, Marco Polo and many more where also so important in human history as some leaders.

    Anyway i cant whait any longer...bring out civ5..!!!

    YES i absolutely think we need to see Hitler in this game! I'm sure the Civ-makers have been afraid of making him because he was a nazi and blah blah blah, but come on - Stalin and Mao weren't much better - so make him!
