    I've tried this "PerfectWorld".
    After seeing the results, I came to the conclusion that it's not necessary to merge it with the mod, for two reasons:

    1 - terrain and feature placement, which seem much better than the normal one, look similar to what I've done and shown in this preview.
    2 - my continents placement has different prerequisites - RFC needs more than 35% of land, which is a lot, to contain many civs in a smaller (and faster) map. Tweaking Terra I've achieved this, and I can ensure a minimum distance between continents. Instead, with PerfectWorld, that distance is ensured only for lower ratios (up tp 25%). Try changing that number, and you'll see "bridges".

    In Preview 4 (i think), it talks about all the cool improvments like stability will be lowerd if the vikings build a city in egypt etc. is that for RFC RAND or the update thats coming in September:)sad:)??

    It's clearly for RFC RAND.
    Normal RFC already has that mechanism, but it's hardcoded to Earth regions. The tricky thing was to reproduce this on a random map

    I think what Rhye was trying to say in preview #4 is that Egyptians will almost always spawn near a flood plain due to high modifiers, not that they get a bonus. Correct me if I'm wrong Rhye.

    Are the same agricultural penalties going to apply to the Egyptians, Malians and Ethiopians, even though they may never see a floodplain?
    Also, is Mali going to get its economic stability cut in half again due to its UP?

    So in a way RFC RAND allows you to recreate history on a diffrent world

    Forgive me for jumping into this late, but what I understand is there won't be additional civs like Sumeria? I haven't played RFC, is Sumeria there? :confused:

    Sumeria is not in. But Gilgamesh is.
