    I prefer 100-150 AD instead of 50 BC. Just to try a good roman game. As I said, every other UHV should end before 50 BC. India is indeed just the Indus Valley.

    We can decide between 50BC-150AD during play testing.

    I think a lot of things depend whether the finish date is one or the other. It should be discussed before that.

    Well, we should first stop at 50BC, then add if we think it should be extended.

    So, recalling religions, with Christianism dropped (even if the mod finishes at 150 AD, it really wasn't a religion yet, though an event and a related wonder would be cool) that still leaves 6.

    By order of appearance:

    Mesopotamian
    Egyptian
    Phoenician/Carthaginian/Canaanite (its confrontation with Judaism should be present in Hebrew's UHV)
    Judaism
    Hellenism
    Zoroastrianism

    Which would be the other one? Buddhism or Hinduism for India?

    Most of the files for all of them are already in other mods. I can begin to code it together one of these days.

    It's not final. In my opinion the best way is to put a date like 150 AD (around the maximum extension of Roman empire). Beyond that the game would be a bit weird, as only two of all the civs where still alive in reality.

    I've written them down as:

    Mesopotamian Myths
    Heliopolitan Myths
    Olympian Myths (though I prefer Hellenism, as it refers to Greek culture as a whole)
    Canaanite Myths
    Judaism
    Zoroatrism
    Buddhism

    I wouldn't use the term "myths." Those are the literary stories we still carry around as vague vestiges of those religions, when the religions themselves were a set of practices and beliefs.

    Or just the religion without anything after.
    Good call on Heliopolitan BTW. I never heard of it, but it sounds very generic.

    While I really don't understand what you guys are looking for with religions I thought I should just post some ideas for thought.

    Zoroastrianism was not the state religion of the area of Persia in 3000 BC. Neither Judaism or Zoroastrianism were founded by that time. Just curious was there any ideas to have the civs start based on the dates of the religions being founded?

    If you are including India.......Buddhism or Jainism began around 500 BC. Hinduism was really different as well. After Asoka and Buddhism's decline in India is when the modern version of Hinduism really began. The Vedic religion practices were different from Hinduism. I am not sure when the term Hinduism even came around.

    And again I am not the all knowing source of information. I am just curious if getting this much detail about them really matters to you guys or not. If not then sorry ahead of time.
