    A question about Jap UHV. To be the 1st in score means only among those who I have contact with? Cuz contact with powerful Europeans is lost from time to time and thus it can be easy to achieve this UHV. Or am I wrong?

    And about 3rd. Is it possible on Monarch to complete the tech tree before 2020? I've never completed in RFC, only in standard BTS. I always play RFC on Monarch and usually lose tech advantage, although I try to trade and steal as much as I can. For me this UHV is a nightmare, cuz Europeans always have 3-4 techs that I don't know:shake:

    All scores count, it doesn't matter if you keep contact (although it's advisable to see what you're up against).

    As far as research goes, the sooner you conquer China, the better. If you still have problems catching up to the Europeans, focus on getting Computers and build the Internet.

    Thnx Leoreth, maybe I should just more practice. I've already conquered China, now I think of destabilizing England in future (or any other advanced civ) to be able to build Internet and acquire some techs.

    Spoiler :
    Btw, great work with DoC! As I'm RFC-addicted, it's good to see that there are many talented modders who also like RFC and make it better.

    Thanks :)

    And destabilizing your competition is a good idea.

    What is the difference between playing the scenarios Unlocked or not unlocked?

    I THINK this allows you to play the civs that take more than 5 minutes to load, so the Americans and the post-600 AD civs in the 3000 BC start.

    Yes.
    The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 5 characters.

    Did anyone achieve historical victory as India?Even at the easiest difficulty level I directly research to the Buddhism and Hindu techs but then I fail at Judaism.When I try to first research Judaism I fail at Buddhism or Hinduism.When I only go for Buddhism and Hinduism, it's totally impossible to get Mathematics(confuzianism) before China does.Did anyone found 5 religions including Buddhism and Hinduism as India?

    The first three are easy. The next two should be Christianity and Islam. For me, the most difficult goal is the third. Look for strategy guides in the stickied thread with links.

    I like to send the initial warrior over to china, promoted to woodsman II on the way, and steal all their workers. This will slow down China which gives you the time to found confu and tao in time. Additionally, you get a whole army of workers to your disposal ;)

    The first three are easy?Buddhism , Hinduism and Judaism you mean?But at some turn Jerusalem always founds Judaism.Where should I get the trade get from to research all three fast enough?I can research Monotheism fast enough, but then there is not enough time for meditation anymore and anywhere Buddhism is found.When I go for Meditation as first, I never have enough time for Judaism left.Is it maybe to build my city somewhere else with less illness and/or more commerce?

    I followed the guide and built my city there too. I followed the same techs but still Shushan has founded Hinduism , two turns before I researched Monotheism(turn 34 exactly like in the guide).I did everything exactly like shown in the guide.But in the game of the video he still can research Meditation afterwards and has the luck of finding Priesthood in a village.

    Edit:My next try has worked even without getting any tech from a village :).For some reason Shushan didn't want to found Hinduism this time.

    Thank you for the tip, I captured with one warrior 2 workers(1worker , 1settler), the settler was defended by a Chinese warrior who got killed.But I couldn't get mathematics before China did...didn't even finish Writing.

    It's not that difficult if you follow the guides.

    I believe there have been several attempts to use a larger Earth map for RFC, but I think all have failed due to difficulty programming it.

    But there are mods with maps of some regions. So, these difficulties can be overcome ...

    The real problem is balancing it. It took long enough to balance base RFC. Of course, with enough time and patience it can be done.
