    Is the new civ Thailand? (I found an album from 1981 with Bangkok in the title) or possibly Brazil? (there's a song called Rio, but Rio de Janeiro isn't the capital)

    Oh, btw Rhye, I'd like to report the way my game has been going on Monarch as Austria (so far I got to the late 19th century methinks):
    America was discovered on time, Europe has been contantly at war within itself or against the Mongols since the early ADs, and Arabia, China, Mongols, Germany, Russia, and Austria have been the leading world powers (according to the histograph) for most of the game... After I battered Germany and Russia pretty hard, Japan and America are rising powers.
    Basically I'm the only one with much tech and a large income nowadays, but soon enough everyone will be switching to Democracy and Communism and then the nations' power will be more evident.
    Is it normal for Japan to colonise SE Asia? I think their small group of colonies is the reason their score is high on the list...

    It's a song by the early U2, from one of my favourite albums

    Sounds good, expecially America discovered on time (by you?) and the rising of America.
    Usually Japan colonizes some islands or SE Asia. If it doesn't, you can bet it's stuck researching Writing, keeping the settlers in its own cities, for some strage reasons.

    Even in case everybody agrees with my choice, I'll need a couple of days to update civilopedia, check that the new civ is balanced, make the packages, etc.

    I didn't discover America, though I had thought I did till I traded for some maps and saw French colonies in Northern South America.
    I've been trying to make good trade parteners out of the american civs since they are way behind, meaning I gift them a bunch of techs every now and then... I think I'll do this more vigorously so I can get America as an ally for my next big war... I won't stop till all of western Europe is mine. :D

    I say bring on the new civ, so long as it isn't in the Middle East. As nice as it would be to have a Palestinian or Jewish state, there just isn't any room for it, and even if there I still wouldn't consider them important enough to merit their own civilization.

    Blasphemous, don't you know there's a song with the name of your city?

    It is Israel for Sumeria.

    I've made this choice some time ago and it is definitive. I'm sorry that somebody will not like it, but I have various reasons to include it - the question is: now or in the Xpack only (in case somebody prefer Sumeria).

    The reasons are:
    -historical ->they are very important and deserve a Civ IMO. No matter if the region is crowded. They were over there before Christ, and are important nowadays. You can live without knowing who Sumerians or Khmers or Tibetans were. You can't live without knowing anything of Judaism, Israel etc., no matter if you like or dislike them. If you don't like them, make fanatics or crusaders and destroy them.
    -pratical ->I must think ahead, of the Xpack. I could not find 2 UUs for other civs. Instead I found good stuff for Israel.


    That's all. Let me know if you all agree to anticipate the addition to the main mod or prefer Sumeria.

    First of all, immediately change the name of the nation to "Hebrews", or "Israel" (in ancient times the name was used as well as today). (As a nation I don't think we're commonly called "the Jews" by anybody but well, ourselves and those who think it's a bad word. Then again, I think all civ names should be those used by the nations themselves for themselves. Which is another issue entirely.)
    And of course I knew (or at least was pretty sure) the civ you were adding is Israel because you narrowed down the options pretty well a few pages ago... I also know there are plenty of songs called "Jerusalem" or at least including the name... I just couldn't find it in allmusic.com in U2's songlist or discography. =S
    But I personally think it's not the best choice of civ to add... Althought there may be much cultural history the Hebrew people are involved in, as a nation we were never really a large empire of any ifluence, and never really an actual organized country for that long...
    I think east Asia, Africa, and native America are very under-represented and are in more need of another civ.
    Also, as sad as the reality is, the situation in my country and my area is very charged and I'd rather not be represented in your mod than be represented and have people play the mod just to enjoy killing the virtual nation representing me.
    But hey, you make the mod, it's your choice. I'd just rather see Polynesia, the Khmer, Mali*, or the Cherokee in the mod rather than Israel.

    *Not sure that was it, but what I mean is that large african empire that dominated a large area of sub-sahara Africa for a long long time. The nation I speak of is known by several names, and some of them regard nations that inherited the empire, so to speak. I don't really know much about this, I just recall reading about it here in CFC in threads abotu other civs that need to be in the game.

    Yes change the name to Hebrews and Im from a christian background and I love that you added them. For Sumeria I would leave there starting city and give contol of it to Babylon and don't listen to all the people that ***** that Babylon will get a head start. This will make a more historical view. Also if the cities survive we can have an Iraq or Kawatti war ...lol! Also Babylon in ancient times was a bit of a power house.

    Who cares if people want to invade Israel or not...it's a game and don't take it personal. I love attacking the Americans and Im Canadian..lol! I would remove America and add Poland too. This would make for a great colonizing of North America!!!

    Blasphemus, I can't believe you do not control all of western Europe yet. I also played as the Austrians on Monarch. I booted French, Netherlands, Byzantines, Greeks, Romans,(I got to try the Hussars for the first time on them!!!) Portuguese and Spainish off of the continent and it is only 600 AD!!! (Civs were conquered in that order)I have just entered the industrial age via bullying people for tech :) I think i'll conquer Ottomans, Sumerians etc. to get at that Arabian oil! YUUMMM YYYUUUMM!!!

    I vote release the 2.6 patch!!
